How to add a second player to Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes

The process of getting a second player to join you is fairly straightforward. When on the Battle Map screen, where you can position your units, press the - (minus) button on player one's Joy-Cons or another Switch Pro Controller. This will add a second player to the game. "P2 Can Join!" will change to "P2 Joined" when the - is pressed. On the map, one of your units will have P1 next to them, and one will have P2. This indicates who controls which playable character.

The second player can only play you when fighting the battles in Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes. You will not see them roaming the camp, and they will have no say in your choices. They are purely a second warrior to fight alongside. Once you have started a game in co-op, you cannot end it unless you finish the fight or retreat to the war map and enter the battle alone.

Hey, my name is Mark, and I'm a video game enthusiast! My earliest memory was playing Worms on the Amiga against my Godmother, yes the Amiga, massive box type thing, needed eighty-five thousand floppy disks to play one game, maybe a slight exaggeration. Ah, those were the days! I love RPG’s, and The Legend of Zelda series. Dogs are pretty awesome.
