Fire Emblem: Three Houses Discounted At Walmart On Release Day (US)

Walmart is offering a nice in-store deal on the first Fire Emblem game for Nintendo Switch.


The next big Nintendo Switch role-playing game, Fire Emblem: Three Houses, releases today, Friday, July 26. If you're interested in the game and want to save a little scratch, Walmart has an offer you may want to consider. The retailer will be selling the Switch-exclusive for $49.94 USD. This is an in-store deal only, it appears.

It's a pretty good deal, as Three Houses is a full-price game, normally going for $60 USD. You can visit the Three Houses page on Walmart's website to learn more, though again, it appears this offer is only available in-store. Walmart is reportedly offering the same $49.94 USD deal on the recently released Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order for Nintendo Switch. If you don't have a local Walmart near you, it's still worth keeping an eye on online prices at both Amazon and Walmart, which have been offering brand-new games for $49.94 USD quite often recently. It's possible the in-store deal may extend to the website eventually.

Now Playing: Fire Emblem: Three Houses Gets Walmart Launch Sale - GS News Update

Three Houses represents the Fire Emblem franchise's debut on Nintendo Switch, though a number of its most notable characters--including Marth, Roy, and Ike--are featured in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

The turn-based tactical role-playing game was originally scheduled to release in spring 2019, but the game was later delayed until summer.

Fire Emblem: Three Houses takes you to a continent called Fódlan, where the Church of Seiros exists at the center of it all. Similar to previous Fire Emblem entries, your customizable character is an advisor. However, you're a professor at the Officer's Academy this time around, with your warriors--who are divided into three houses based on their respective nation--as your students.
