I'm absolutely positive that Robbie and Purah are both playable characters in this game, but are taken out post-production so Nintendo can sell them back to us as paid DLCs.

While it's obvious that Nintendo would take out characters post-production in order to sell them back as DLCs, I'm more outraged by any CHOICE of characters they included over Purah and Robbie, both whom are key characters to the events of Age of Calamity.

The Great Fairies, Hestu, and even Maz Koshia should have been the ones taken out instead of Robbie and Purah.

Yeah it's very likely. Both of them have portraits as well as in battle models lmao. The villains not being playable is worse though, as both of them already have movesets.
Sigh

This is KT's bread and butter, so I'm sure it's a guarantee.

Is there any actual data for it like in Fire Emblem Warriors, where they found movesets and such for characters that were already a part of the story and later added in? I mean, it wouldn't be the first time Toei did this in one of the Nintendo collaborations, so I'm curious if they're as sloppy as last time on hiding it, just like how there was data for Tingle in the original HW well before his DLC released.

@ MercenaryLagoon - I think it's more of a Nintendo thing rather than Koei-Tecmo to remove contents post-production and then selling them back. I believe Koei-Tecmo only really started doing that with Dynasty Warriors 9. Prior to that, any additional characters that were sold as paid DLCs were actually extras that truly did not exist during the original release.

Koei have been doing it for a really long time. They used to have unique NPC's in their games and then add them into the expansion packs. They stopped doing that for a little while, then moved onto the dlc NPCs lol.

Technically, SW only really did this, back then when Dynasty Warriors had real unique npcs like Cao Mao he’d never be playable, Infact they went out of their way to remove him from the empires entires twice.
Characters like Huche’er(the guy with the bandit mask) and I think a few others got to be playable like this, meanwhile for some reason 7 and 8 really did not want you playing as characters like Cao Mao and Sima Yan(you can find them in XL and conquest mode of 7, they had unique models and unique lines iirc), meanwhile DW other uniques weren’t as elaborate, they did that funny thing in DW6 where Zhang Jiao’s brothers used his DW5 moveset, you can use them in empires, only unique thing about them was the moveset though

They had no control over what happened with FE Warriors because they were told at that last Minute to add 3 characters which meant other characters couldn’t be finished. Work on Navarre, Owain and Oboro ended when work on Lyn, Celica and Anna began.

As far as this, no I don’t think they were intends to be playable, even as important characters in the story they are never implied to go along with the heroes at any point in fact the opposite is true since they are always somewhere else for research.
