I just realized that Awakening was the last FE I played. But dang, Three Houses looks... intricate, to say the least. Hopefully it'll be a good “welcome back“ entry.

Three Houses seems incredibly deep. And it seems so different from other FE games I've played.

Really, really excited to finally play it.

I'm a little scared to be honest. Fates and Awakening with all the DLC ruined my free time. I really don't have the bandwidth but I feel like an addict and somebody just came by with my fix. I do wonder what form the Fire Emblem is going to take this time around.

A lot of the news on this game is really exciting. Sounds like they’re going all out with complexity and features this time around. Was hoping they’d have improved the visuals of the game but I guess Fire Emblem games have basically always looked pretty bad in terms of presentation that isn’t artworks (and even then)

So the new trailer basically confirms 100% the leak that was going around on Reddit a few months back. Basically sets up exactly the purpose of the school and makes me feel much more confident in the direction of the game. So the house you choose and how you train your students, will set their position after the timeskip. I also imagine that post time skip the characters will have new and more individualized appearances. Which is exciting.

I’m going with probably Blue Lions

That new trailer made me more excited for this one. Still not sure if I'll go with the Black Eagles or Blue Lions.

Three Houses looks better with every trailer it gets. Really, really excited for this one, despite it getting kind of ignored in the excitement of all the new announcements and footage today.

One thing in common the remakes have are the new prologues, so I've always imagined that a remake of Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War would include a new chapter that focuses on the younger versions of the first generation characters. Since Sigurd, Quan, and Eldigan became friends during their time in the academy, I wouldn't be surprised if it takes place in a school. Whether or not a remake of FE4 would do this, I'm quite happy to see Three Houses instead becoming more in-line with what I hoped for, especially with the five year time skip.

@Knighty_IX C'mon guys, you had one job! XD

Which house are the white knights from? I think I can safely narrow down my house of choice once I eliminate that one from the running...

I am so much more excited for this game after watching the Treehouse video. The game looks amazing and just the little sampling of the story has really whet my appetite. The fact that it all seems fully voiced in both English and Japanese seems awesome! I am so glad they didn't go with different "versions" of the game for each house as well.

Weapon durability is back and so are Awakening style abilities like rally it seems. Both things I like. Those weapon skills look interesting. I like the idea of special movies that wear out your weapon faster. Seems like a great way to give your characters more combat options.

Looks like they are really going all out with character relationships and customization options! From the looks of it, you can micro-managed almost everything! But it also seems like you can let things play out as well, if you don't want the busy work. Good to have both options. It looks like you'll even be able to recruit characters from other houses to whichever you support. I imagine only some though, otherwise the story would be a mess and it wouldn't make sense for your trusted Paladin to show up as an enemy in cutscene.

All in all, I really like this so far!

@CanisWolfred Not sure if the white knights themselves are House specific, but the character in charge of them, Dedue, is from the Blue Lions (no wonder it's the least popular House lol).

Yeah, that's the main concern I had originally .... Although I did like the Fates games

Good to see Fire Emblem is taking inspiration from bowling.

Treehouse video has me HYPED!

Also, posted this in the Switch thread but I dont think there's many FE fans there. You lovely people may appreciate the info more

Seems this info for Fire Emblem Three Houses is legit.

https://www.reddit.com/r/fireemblem/comments/bp3km3/thanibomb_three_houses_rumors_summarycompilation/

Notably,

  • Students lose their school uniforms and look more unique on promotion
  • There is a 5 year timeskip
  • Pretty much everyone’s look changes after the timeskip
  • The Houses will get much more antognistic towards each other in other paths
  • The academy remains important throughout the game buts becomes less relevant later on
  • "Part 1" has ~12 chapters, no word on how many parts. "Part 1 has a heavy focus on the academy, for example, while Part 2 does not."
  • There are four paths that don't converge. The fourth path is not a "happily ever after" path, and Edelgard gets two of those paths. One of them is a "neutral" path.
  • "Let's just say the story and character development are much, much better than Fateswakening. Major Jugdral + Tellius vibes with a little modern flair. Edelgard reminds me so much of Micaiah, but much more... ruthless."
  • "The school setting was just a facade for a much darker storyline. And there will be more than three countries involved..."
  • "From what I know (very little) of the story so far, I'd give it a 9. By comparison Genealogy is a 10 and Fates is a 2."

Also, per a USGamer article, the weapon triangle is gone, in favor of a more in depth combat arts system. And regarding progression of chapters, they had this to say:

On Sundays, the character player—a newly appointed professor at the Officer's Academy—can take a free action. Sometimes this means exploring the academy grounds, talking to students and raising motivation, completing the aforementioned quests. The school grounds contain a lot of side activities, from the Amiibo gazebo (yes, it is called that) to cats and dogs (I asked, and in the current build, you cannot pet them). Or you could hold an additional lecture, or rest to raise the motivation of your army. There are also battles, which can either be simple fights for treasure and experience, to lead-ins that set up the big battle at the end of every chapter and month. If you're indecisive, that's okay, as the game will notify you when a prologue battle is available and global player percentages will tell you what others have done in your shoes.

Here’s a great overview from Serene’s Forest

Take a look at the main characters in the War Phase of the game after the time skip. Legit.

Been watching this 12 minute gameplay clip and wow... The music, the presentation, the combat arts and new gameplay, the character designs and art style... I’m so hyped for this game I think of nothing else.

The battle animations look so much better than the top-down maps. The difference in quality is kinda jarring.

The trailer, the Treehouse footage and the Gamespot footage made me a lot more excited for Three Houses.

Typical for FE at this point. Echoes for example had actually quite amazing battle animations despite it being a 3DS game with barren and repetitive maps and visuals.

I thought all the 3DS games had brilliant battle animations AND maps.

Echoes had fairly simplistic maps, yes, but they still generally looked quite good. I think it was because the pixel art sprites looked good on the 3D background, and they looked kinda to-scale.
I don't like the style they've gone with here. It looks dull and the scale is off.

It's dangerous to go alone! Stay at home.
