That said, Navarre, Oboro, Niles, and Owain act as NPCs in the story mode, so it’s still unsure if they’re unlockable characters. Meanwhile, Iago, Darius, and Gharnef are enemies, hinting that they could be playable outside of the story mode.

So far, Nintendo has yet to reveal any information about these said characters. On the other hand, they have revealed Celica from “Shadows of Valencia” as part of the growing roster. Similarly, they have shared that Caeda and Tiki from #Shadow Dragon” will also be playable characters. Celica uses a sword and light magic in battle, while Caeda is a Pegasus Rider and Tiki wields a Dragon Stone.
