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.

Now playing: Okami HD, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

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.

@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

I'll play any and all paths the game might have lol

I'll also start with the only correct path which is Dimitri's

What a beautiful signature.

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.

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.

@JaxonH I imagine the worldwide release (first time in the franchise) is the main factor why Three Houses DLC hasn't been announced yet. DLC for the 3DS games were announced close to the Japan base game launch which meant months/years before the rest of the world get the base game.

I am beyond ready for this game. I'm on information blackout until it drops (Aside from what was shown in the E3 trailer) but I've been listening to the few OST pieces in the wild nonstop. Love the theme song! Can't wait!

@JaxonH I like the Three Houses approach to multiple campaigns, personally. Each of the houses will provide a fresh perspective on plot events, making it rewarding to play over again, but since all of the campaigns will cover the same set of plot beats, you don't feel like you're missing anything if you wait months or even years to play through the game again. Also, keeping it down to one plot instead of three allows the narrative to feel balanced and complete no matter which house you choose.

I'm pretty sure my choice will be the Golden Deer.

@Grumblevolcano
That's actually a really good point. Now that you mention it, I do recall that being the case.

@Ralizah
Golden Deer is my 2nd pick. And ya, I definitely prefer this approach over Fates. I actually would have liked Fates approach just as much had they nailed the story and characters. Think they were just spread too thin though

I definitely wanna play this game, but I feel like I should play through a couple of backlogged titles first. Those titles being FE Fates: Birthright and Shadows of Valentia. I know there's no plot relation but also wanna get them off of my plate.

I still need to get Shadows... but circumstances around Fates kinda left me jaded. I have Birthright, but I've yet to play it. So Three Houses will probably be my first actual FE since Awakening.

It's a shame Pokemon on Switch hasn't evolved like this franchise has.
