Three Houses: Wave 4 DLC Characters & Classes (Placeholders) Found in Version 1.1.0. Data

Earlier this week, Version 1.1.0. of Three Houses landed, bringing in playable Jeritza and Anna, fancy maid costumes, the sauna, animal play-time and various other hi-jinks. As it happens, Version 1.1.0. also contains some hidden data related to the upcoming Wave 4 DLC…

For those unaware, Wave 4 is planned for release before May 2020 and will feature brand new story content, playable characters, etc. According to the Famitsu guidebook, the new story content is known as “Abyss Mode” (at least in the Japanese version).

Since the new update, the sneaky developers have already started setting up the new story content. Eager fans may have noticed various in-game references to the abyss below Garreg Mach Monastery and its mysterious inhabitants, the “Abyssians”. Which weren’t there before.

Ironically, there’s more below the surface… Thanks to leftover placeholder data found in the new update, we can shed some more light on some of the content planned for Wave 4. In particular, the 4 new characters and classes mentioned in Famitsu.

Before we continue, please note that the information in this article is all from our preliminary searches–and there’s probably more to be found. Also, some of the data may change once the DLC is actually released. Last but not least, a big thanks to DeathChaos25 for their research and assistance!

Fire Emblem Expo II Teased & Edelgard Figma Update

In addition to today’s update for Three Houses, Nintendo and Intelligent Systems shared some general Fire Emblem news.

Firstly, at some point during 2020, Intelligent Systems will be holding the “Fire Emblem Expo II” event in Japan.

Similar to the first event, it will be a fun event for fans, featuring special stage events and live music related to the entire series. Don’t expect any major game announcements (like the rumoured next remake) to happen there.

If you’re curious, you can check out the event’s website over here. Right now, it’s just a teaser, with proper details to be added around 22nd November 2019. For now, please watch this space!

Next, the Edelgard figma that was announced earlier this year has received a fresh coat of paint–and with it, new details. The figma measures approx. 145 mm and includes the Killer Axe from her official artwork and her relic weapon Aymr.

It is expected to release in Japan during July 2020 and will retail for 8,000 Yen (not including tax). For those interested in adding the future Adrestian emperor to their collection, you can place a pre-order and/or check out additional images via the product page at Good Smile Company.

Three Houses: Wave 3 DLC and Version 1.1.0. Update Now Available!

From 8th November 2019, fans can now download the new Version 1.1.0 update for Three Houses.

This update adds some new features (including playable Jeritza), quality of life changes (more save files!) and bug fixes for all users. Plus additional content for expansion pass owners (playable Anna, new costumes, playing with animals, the sauna, etc.).

If you’ve been closely following Three Houses news, some of these features were revealed via the Famitsu guidebook released a few months ago. From here on, there is one more wave of DLC planned, featuring new story content (the mysterious “Abyss Mode”) and much, much more.

Anyway, if you’re interested in the detailed patch notes, please continue after the break or pay a visit to Nintendo’s website!

Of note, the new update fixes a bug with the Adjutant Follow-Up attack rate, causing it to be lower than usual for specific support levels, which I believe we were the first to discover. It’s nice that somebody noticed or reported this bug to Nintendo.

(Also, we’ll update our Three Houses pages with info for Anna and Jeritza etc. as soon as we can. But it might take a short while.)

Rumour: Cancelled Fire Emblem Remake for 3DS Could Live Again on Switch

It’s only been a few months since a new Fire Emblem game–Three Houses–was released, but there’s a possibility that the wait for the next title in the series might not be that long.


We think Genealogy of the Holy War and Binding Blade are the most likely candidates for a remake.

In a recent episode of “Kinda Funny Games Daily”, Imran Khan–former senior editor at Game Informer–casually mentioned that a Fire Emblem game was being produced for the Nintendo 3DS at one point, but was cancelled. However, he also speculated that this project could be revived for the Nintendo Switch.

I know there was another Fire Emblem remake in the works for 3DS and that was one of the things that they shuttered. So maybe that’s one of the things they’ll bring forward [to the Switch] in the future.

(Thanks to Nintendo Enthusiast and many others for the heads up!)

His comments were a follow up to a recent article by Wall Street Journalist author Takashi Mochizuki who claimed that Nintendo wants more 3DS-like games created for the Nintendo Switch and also the recent announcement that “Mario & Luigi” developer AlphaDream would be going bankrupt.

(Via Games Radar and Polygon.)

It seems that one of the triggers for the game’s cancellation was the poor sales of Mario & Luigi: Bowser’s Inside Story on Nintendo 3DS in February 2019. This caused Nintendo to re-evaluate their Nintendo 3DS projects, leading to the cancellation of the purported Fire Emblem remake.
