Fire Emblem: Three Houses Gets Huge Discount For Black Friday

Wage war on your Nintendo Switch in the amazing tactical-RPG Fire Emblem: Three Houses.


Fire Emblem: Three Houses, Nintendo's brilliant tactical-RPG that mixes intense warfare with relationship goals, is on sale for just $35 during Black Friday.

Available at Walmart, this price applies to both the physical and digital editions of Fire Emblem: Three Houses for Nintendo Switch. It's a game that packs a surprising amount of content into its cart and can easily last you 50+ hours as you forge relationships with friends and love interests that you'll send into battle. If you're feeling brave, you can even toggle a permadeath option where losing one of your valuable comrades on the battlefield will permanently remove them from the game.

Beyond that, expect a sprawling story about kingdoms at war, sinister conspiracies, and prophecies about chosen heroes. When you're not planning the perfect strategy to crush your enemies, you'll be teaching your allies at a prestigious school, hosting afternoon tea sessions, and slowly building your power throughout the course of the main campaign. For a different Fire Emblem experience you can check out the current deal on Fire Emblem: Three Hopes, as that action-packed spin-off is just $35 during Black Friday.

"Fire Emblem: Three Houses asks a lot of you. Every piece, from battle to friendships to training your units, must be managed both individually and as part of a whole," Kallie Plagge wrote in GameSpot's Fire Emblem: Three Houses review. "It can be intimidating, but when it all clicks together, it really clicks. Mastering the art of thoughtful lesson planning as a professor improves your performance on the battlefield, where success relies on calculated teamwork and deft execution. Every piece feeds into the next in a rewarding, engrossing loop where you get lost in the whole experience, not just in the minutiae."
