Fire Emblem: Three Houses, preview video after Nintendo Direct


In the latest Nintendo Direct we had the opportunity to discover new information and details on Fire Emblem: Three Houses: here is the new video preview.

On the occasion of the last Nintendo Direct we had the opportunity to discover new information and details on Fire Emblem: Three Houses. As the title suggests, the history revolves around three houses, but not in the way fans have thought so far. L’setting it is located in the lands of Fòdlan, a continent divided into three regions controlled by three factions respectively. Don’t be fooled though, because the three houses mentioned in the title don’t refer to the three areas of the continent, but to the three classes that attend the academy where the protagonist studies: the Black Eagles, the Blue Lions and the Golden Deers. A bit like the houses of Hogwarts in Harry Potter, so to speak. And just like in Harry Potter, these three houses are in competition with each other. The player will thus have to decide which of these to support, but the short animated sequences glimpsed during the last Nintendo Direct suggest that a war will break out in the continent in which these students will be forced to face each other for real.

The player’s goal will therefore be to train the students of the chosen house, to ensure that they become unstoppable in combat. Despite this strange school setting, the gameplay in the battles of Fire Emblem: Three Houses is what we have come to love, albeit with some important news. In addition to the renewed interface, more streamlined and modern than in the past, the clashes feature a large number of common units that surround the young heroes: it is not clear, however, whether it is possible to involve them in skirmishes or if they only serve as a contour to make the battle skits more spectacular.

Between missions we will then return to the academy and our task as mentors will be to prepare our students, choosing for them the lessons to follow in order to shape them for the fights. We still don’t know how this part of the game will work in detail, but it is clear that the points and time of the characters will have to be carefully spent in order to improve in their branches of competence. During the interludes between missions, it will also be necessary to make sure that the apprentices spend time socializing: this will increase the affinity between the various cadets, unlocking special combined attacks and probably small skits that will deepen their personal stories. The Fire Emblem series has always paid great attention to the characterization of personages; let’s just hope that in Three Houses we move away from those clichés that made us turn up our noses especially in Fire Emblem Fates for Nintendo 3DS. At the moment, the various cadets seem interesting and quite different in both appearance and characterization, while the story also seemed quite intriguing to us.

Initially expected for this spring, the Fire Emblem: Three Houses release date it has been postponed to July 26th. Nintendo admitted that the game needed a few more months of development, but it still promises very well: Intelligent Systems and Koei Tecmo have made numerous changes of a certain depth to the proven formula, opting for a new direction that could however perplex. longtime fans. Needless to say, however, we look forward to the opportunity to play it since, on a strategic and role-playing level, it looks like an extremely rich and full-bodied title.
