The latest entry in Nintendo's long-running tactical RPG series, Fire Emblem: Three Houses, has finally released for Nintendo Switch. And luckily for anyone who hasn't gotten their hands on Three Houses yet, the game is already a full $10 off at Target, selling for $50 with free two-day shipping. That's an excellent deal for brand-new Nintendo Switch exclusive, especially one that's received overwhelmingly positive reviews from many sites.
Fire Emblem: Three Houses
It's worth mentioning that while you can order the game online at a discount from Target, the game is also on sale at Walmart--if you can make it to a brick-and-mortar store. Walmart dropped the price on Fire Emblem: Three Houses to $49.94 on release day, marking a larger trend of retailers offering new games for $50 rather than $60 at release.
If you're a fan of Fire Emblem or turn-based strategy games in general, Three Houses is absolutely worth picking up. You control a mercenary-turned-professor who arrives at Garreg Mach monastery at the center of a land called Fódlan. There, you'll choose one among three different houses to train a group of students, who become your warriors on the battlefield.
The game earned a 9/10 in GameSpot's Fire Emblem: Three Houses review. "When all was said and done, all I could think about was starting another playthrough. I was curious about the mysteries left unsolved, of course, but I also hoped to undo my mistakes," wrote GameSpot's Kallie Plagge. "A second playthrough treads familiar ground in the beginning, but after learning and growing so much in the first, it feels fresh, too. That speaks to Three Houses' mechanical complexity and depth as well as the connections it fosters with its characters--and whether you're managing inventories or battlefields, it's the kind of game that's hard to put down, even when it's over."
