Fire Emblem: Three Houses returns, this time as a frenetic hack-and-slash game Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes. The Musou-style game is coming to Nintendo Switch on June 24, 2022.

Here is the trailer:

Revealed during today’s Nintendo Direct, Edelgard, Dimitri and Claude will fight new battles in the same world as Three Housesbut with real-time action replacing turn-based tactical combat.

This is a formula that worked well for 2017 Fire Emblem Warriorsbut hopefully it will be even better this time around, since the game won’t need to be playable on 3DS as well. dynasty warriorSimilar spin-offs have come a long way in recent years. Last years Persona 5 Strikers was exceptional, for example, at least when it came to pimple mashing and vibration. Stories often pale in comparison to their source material.

A series that for a long time Nintendo didn’t even bother to localize overseas, fire emblem became one of the console manufacturersit is go to list A franchises since the launch of the 3DS. Now nearly half of Smash Bros Ultimatethe list of is fire emblem. It’s the rumor Nintendo even considered at one point changing Super Smash Bros. name to Fire Emblem Bros.

The launch of Fire Emblem Awakening on DS in 2012 was followed by Fates in 2015, echoes in 2017, then Three Houses in 2019. So we are about to have another one, but waiting for another Warriors spin off.

Fire Emblem: Three Houses is also one of the best games in the fire emblem series, so it’s ripe for the musou treatment, at least in a world where we don’t immediately get a direct sequel. Three Houses is awesome in part because of its detailed character interactions and relationship progression, but also tea time. three hopes better also have tea time.
