Famitsu has shared a preview of their next–and biggest–Three Houses article, from their 8th & 15th August 2019 issue, which comes out on 25th July (in a couple of hours). They’ll be re-introducing the game’s key features, going over some of the early-game maps and there’s also an interview with directors Genki Yokota and Toshiyuki Kusakihara.
On top of that, the front cover for the magazine features a brand new illustration of the two protagonists (whoa, isn’t that impossible?) with all the students. Many thanks to Mapina-089 from Reddit for sharing! It’d be nice if they released a non-obscured version of it later…
Above are two tiny preview images from the article. The left one introduces the monastery occupants and the Black Eagles. I don’t think you should expect any new info from this, since it looks like it’s from the recap (they need to make up the 40 page count somehow!). Meanwhile, the right one is from the interview.
With the game arriving very soon–or in the case of some lucky
or sneaky people, already arrived–we probably won’t focus on this Famitsu issue too much. I guess it’ll be nice to look at some of the maps and, of course, the interview should be interesting once it’s translated. But we’ll probably continue working on compiling the game data.
