And it’s out soon too – July 26. The latest Fire Emblem Three Houses trailer that came via the Nintendo Direct E3 2019 presentation focuses on story, and showcases the wonderful detail being put into both the real-time and traditional 2D cinematic sequences.
Longtime Fire Emblem fans will no doubt have fond memories of the multiple handheld releases, and how the static 2D images worked a treat in telling a grand fantasy story. Even the Nintendo GameCube release adopted a similar talking heads approach. So, getting to see Fire Emblem look like this – is quite special.
War is coming to the great land of Fódlan. Here, order is maintained by the Church of Seiros, which hosts the prestigious Officers Academy within its headquarters. You are invited to teach one of its three mighty houses, each comprised of students brimming with personality and represented by a royal from one of three territories of Fódlan. As their professor, you must lead your students in their academic lives and in turn-based, tactical RPG battles wrought with strategic, new twists to overcome.
As the story unfolds, your choice of house at the Officers Academy will greatly affect where you stand when the continent becomes engulfed in war. After 5 years, former friends from the academy must now face each other on the battlefield as bitter enemies. Which house, and which path, will you choose?
And it sounds brilliant too – love a good Fire Emblem time-jump.
