Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes Announced, Releasing 24th June 2022

In today’s Nintendo Direct, we started with a bombshell: Fire Emblem is getting a second Musou (Warriors) game. Seeing as Koei Tecmo did assist with making Three Houses, it’ll be quite the graceful spin from Fire Emblem fare to Warriors fare.

With Age of Calamity‘s massive success for Zelda, not to mention modest success for the original Fire Emblem Warriors, KT and Nintendo saw fit to give us a Three Houses Warriors in a similar vein.

Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes releases on 24th June 2022 globally. It can be pre-ordered from the eShop right now.

The game weighs at 15.6 GB. Various text languages are included* and there will be English and Japanese dual audio. There is 2 player multi-player (requires 1 Joy-Con each). The Switch Pro Controller is supported.

* German, English, Spanish, French, Italian, Japanese, Korean and Chinese (Simplified and Traditional). Some languages aren’t available in the physical release (maybe they need to be downloaded?).

Digital editions of the game come with an “Owl Perch” bonus. An owl will appear in your personal quarters; talking to it will give you an Owl Feather, used for gaining support points with allies. This is not included with the physical edition, but may be offered for purchase later on (as DLC).

Japan and Europe, at least, will be receiving limited edition bundles. Both include the game itself, an artbook, tapestry map, set of 5 acrylic figures and a character postcard set.

More details on the Japanese side of things can be found on the game’s official website.

Heroes: Fallen Heroes come in the new Forces of Will Banner, starting May 7

It’s been an expectation since shortly after the release of Fire Emblem Three Houses, but now it’s finally upon us; the Forces of Will Fallen Heroes banner brings Edelgard and Dimitri into the fray, as well as both male and female Morgans from the Fire Emblem Awakening series (specifically, the DLC).

This banner boasts not only powerful-looking units, but powerful skills on those units. Among these skills includes the return of Armored Stride 3, Dive-Bomb 3 and Odd Tempest 3, as well as the new and presumably inheritable C -Menace skills, which appear to be a hard buff+debuff variant to the -Rein skills ‘in combat’ style of debuff.

Additionally, there is a new Tier 4 A skill in the -Ideal line, which applies combat buffs based on HP being full, [Bonus] being present on unit, or if both conditions are met, the buffs provided by each check. Furthermore, both Dimitri and Edelgard come with mighty PRF B-skills in Murderous Lion and Armored Wall, respectively, with Murderous Lion being effectively a Canto +1 & Firesweep Solo skill for an infantry unit, and an improved Special Fighter skill packaged with a Dark Creator Sword and Sol Lance effect (in a once-per-turn 40% damage reduction and a 7 HP after combat effect). I won’t even get started on any of their weapons, all of which include hefty descriptions that you can see below in full detail.

To keep the news rolling, the upcoming reward unit will be Orson, from Fire Emblem Sacred Stones. If you’re unfamiliar, he’s been seen in game as a cavalry unit, wielding either a Silver Lance or a Runesword, so commence speculation. W should also be noted is not only the one time Spark on the 40th summon, but also the Celestial Stone item, which is earned after 40 summons, and can be exchanged for valuable resources including the illustrious Forma Soul (equivalent for one free unit from the Forma Halls events).

Dimitri, Edelgard and the Morgans will be available for summoning starting on May 7 at 12a PT, following the next Version Update.

Castle Conversations Now Live! Features Strange Three Houses Footage (Beta?)

As promised, the “Fire Emblem Castle Conversations” video is now available to watch, via both Nintendo and Nintendo Mobile’s YouTube channels.

As expected, it contained a lot of fun chatter and insights from the 7 voice actors.

However, there was something strange in the video that has gotten fans talking.

At the 30:35 mark, while Christian LaMonte is talking, the video shows off some footage of post-timeskip Edelgard and Claude, but they’re wearing their fully promoted costume, which is impossible in the game.

This has led to speculation that more DLC for Three Houses could be coming–or maybe even an enhanced/definitive edition, similar to Persona 5 Royal. Incredible as Three Houses was, it had a lot of rough corners and bags of content that never made it into the game.

That said, the truth may be more boring than that. Twitter user @rycalochka pointed out how Edelgard’s model resembles her model from some of the earliest footage, suggesting the models in Castle Conversations are from beta footage.
