The next entry in the Fire Emblem series has been revealed. Set in the same universe as the Fire Emblem: Three Houses universe, Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes is a Musou-style game that offers players a different spin on the story of Byleth, Edelgard, Dimitri, and Claude. The game is set to release exclusively on Nintendo Switch on June 24.

In Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes, players get the chance to reunite with several Fire Emblem: Three Houses' characters as they engage in massive battles across a war-torn Fódlan. However, while the faces you see might be familiar, the game's story and gameplay differ greatly from Three Houses. Instead of entering into epic, turn-based encounters requiring a whole lot of patience and strategy, players will assume control of the various Fire Emblem warriors as they hack-and-slash at hordes of foes in real-time combat. For those unfamiliar with Musou-style games, just think of fast-paced, third-person combat seen in titles such as Dynasty Warriors, Hyrule Warriors, and Persona 5 Strikers and you pretty much get the gist of it.

While just how much Three Hope's story deviates from Three Houses' is uncertain, it seems a pretty compelling reason for fans of the 2019 tactical RPG to give the upcoming title a shot.
