Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes Announced For Nintendo Switch
The Musou-style Three Houses spinoff is set to release on June 24.
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.
