It reminds me some of the Tellius games, but not as ugly. I sort of disagree on your view on echoes, but that's fine.

Yeah, the trailer basically confirmed the leak (or at least, part of it) so it makes me far more excited for the game that I was before, to the point I preordered it. I truly was doubtful on getting it, since Fates's story really burned me out....
Anyway, I decided on going with Claude and the Golden Deers, for my first playthrough, since he seems far less unbalanced than the other two. Dimitri's going full warlord and Edelgard is giving me Targaryen vibes, and not of the good type.

I have a chronic lack of time, for everything.

What leak, @Luna_110 ...? I'll probably go Claude 1st time, too but I'm sure I'll do all 3, anyway

@BruceCM
I refer to the one posted in Jaxon’s post. It’s full of spoilers, though, so don’t check it out if you don’t want to ruin the surprises for yourself.
I couldn’t resist, though, I wanted some reassurance this was shaping up better than Fates.

Oh, right.... Well, the official trailers have managed the balance of telling us plenty, without really spoiling many details & those cover everything there

All I’m seeing for this game now, is hype. Everywhere I go... hype. All the hesitation and doubt that was clouding this game previously... gone. Every site I go to and read the comments for, everyone is sold now.

Huh, I've been pretty sold all along .... Mind you, I actually liked Fates

I liked the gameplay in Fates. Pinnacle of the series (though Three Houses will surely have it beat).

But the story... man. The premise of the story was incredible, but that dude they hired to write the story for Fates- epic fail. I think they realized their mistake after release seeing the poor reception to the story, that they should have written the story themselves because honestly, the stories in their previous games that they did themselves were far better.

And I see this game as a re-do, of sorts. It kind of has that same “three paths” thing baked in, only this time it’s condensed into a single game and the story was written in house by their excellent writers as opposed to being contracted out to some anime writer.

I can't speak for FE Fates: Birthright as I haven't played it yet (planning to), but the story of Conquest wasn't....Well, it wasn't bad, but some of your Avatar's decisions in the story seemed forced and/or poorly written. The gameplay was decent however, and some of the characters on the Conquest side were very memorable. Arthur, Kaze, and Charlotte were probably my favorites.

Also, I think the Conquest version of Azura's song wins by a mile.

I've heard the Revelation route, despite being the "true" route, is a train wreck in most cases.

I hated Fates with a burning passion, and am of the opinion Corrin is the dumber protagonist of the series. I prefer Eliwood and Roy over him, and those are nothing to write home about.

While Birthright has a somewhat serviceable, if lackluster, story, the train wreck it was in both Conquest and Revelations burned me badly. I had to force myself to finish Conquest and that was because I fell into the hype and hunted the special edition.

I’m sticking with the normal edition this time. If IS starts doing something stupid again I want to simply trade in the game, and since my local game store doesn’t accept special editions.

I have a chronic lack of time, for everything.

Yeah, I skipped Fates because I didn't want to be a part of that multi-version mess. I'm glad they didn't separate the three houses into three versions...

@Tyranexx The entirety of Conquest boils down to Corrin suffering an increasingly ridiculous set of indignities so that he can get the king to sit in a chair and reveal his true nature to the rest of Corrin's family. It's possibly the lamest plot ever.

Birthright was... OK. Diet Awakening with some better mechanics and maps.

I was so tired of Fates after those two that I never even bothered playing Revelation before selling off my special edition cartridge.

Tyranexx

@Ralizah Precisely. I was intentionally vague since I was trying to avoid spoilers. XD The game as a whole was fairly enjoyable, but the story definitely had little to nothing to do with that. I generally agree with your evaluation of the overall plot. In terms of pointless deaths, I felt that Lilith's didn't really serve any true purpose.

I don’t really think hesitation is warranted in the case of Three Houses. Everything we’ve seen indicates they’re taking a different direction. Half ways a return to form, half ways charting new territory. Children mechanic is out. Time travel is out. Weak story and characters is out (judging not only by the exciting premise, but the leak which reinforces an amazing story for Three Houses).

I have no doubt in my mind whatsoever this is going to be the Fire Emblem of my dreams.

An excellent video showcasing the characters of Three Houses. This is perfect reference material for those looking to decide which house to choose

You mean which 1st, @JaxonH ....? I'll be replaying for the others, anyway

Dimitri went from being the least popular house to the most popular house, while Edelgard went from being the most popular house to the least popular house.

Edelgard is the new Dimitri and Dimitri is the new Edelgard.

Personally though, I’m going with Black Eagles. Bernadetta the introvert self seems like an interesting character, as does Dorothea, the classy songstress with the hat, and that light blue haired dude Caspar. Also like Petra. The purple hair is awesome and warpaint under the eye just sets off the whole look. Dark green haired Hubert seems like an enforcer. Get er done at all costs kinda guy. And Edelgard, I like her.

I’m not sure if I really want to replay the game three times. I made that mistake with Fates and burned out after finishing Birthright and 90% of Conquest. Never finished the game or even touched Revelations. So, I kind of want my experience to be unique this time. Pick a house and commit to it. Let that be my play through and enjoy it. Down the line if I decide to come back and replay the game, I can always make a different choice then.

Yeah, I didn't mean 3 times back to back.... Play other games in between

Some new info via JP download cards.

Amiibo will be compatible in some capacity. Online service used in some capacity, presumably the statistics on choices of other players. DLC confirmed as well, which is great to hear. Always nice to see more content is coming. And I'm glad they didn't announce it prematurely.

Misplaced pride made me put down Fates: Conquest for about three years because I was stuck and didn't want to switch to Phoenix. Now I have. I hope to beat Conquest and Revelations before Three Houses is out.

I'll probably get Three Houses in its first week, but I don't plan on getting the collector's edition. $100 is steep, even with a lot of collectibles.
