Fire Emblem: Three Houses Gets Some Treehouse Gameplay Footage
The second day of Nintendo’s Treehouse broadcasts from E3 began with a segment devoted to Fire Emblem: Three Houses. In the first half of the thirty-minute segment, the hosts began with a look at the game’s Officer Academy sections, where players act as a tutor to students from one of the academy’s three houses. Players are able to find multiple ways to build relationships between the students and help them get more powerful, including changing to a different combat class. During this segment, Nintendo confirmed that the game will have both Japanese and English voice options.
The second half of the segment was devoted to combat. Fire Emblem: Three Houses is mostly similar to the rest of the series, with its turn-based tactical system and advantages of certain classes over others. The footage showed Three Houses‘ new battalions, where regular soldiers accompany the named officers and are visible in combat. The hosts also showed other things players might have to deal with during missions, as well as the Divine Pulse system, where players have the ability to rewind a battle back to any point in time, though this ability has a limited number of uses per battle.
Fire Emblem: Three Houses is set to be released worldwide for Nintendo Switch on July 26, 2019. The game is being developed by longtime series developer Intelligent Systems with assistance from Koei Tecmo.
Seeing the gameplay in action has me even more excited! July 26th can’t come soon enough!
Also, good news! They aren’t shoving in children this time. Looks like they did listen to the main complaints about Fates.
I might have to buy a Switch…curse you Nintendo.
The in-game combat looked terrific. First map they showed was reminiscent of Radiant Dawn—a very good sign. My hype for the game increased exponentially when we learned of the time skip. Knowing that the entirety of the game is not focused in the school setting is a big plus.
