A short time ago, Nintendo revealed a large helping of info about Fire Emblem: Three Houses, showcasing the game's school-based setting. While we can't wait to get our hands on the finished product, we have to admit that the setup did seem to be a little underwhelming; it felt like tactical title set in the Harry Potter world, almost.

It turns out that the school setting serves as a prologue of sorts, and the bulk of the game takes place five years afterwards, when the three houses of the title are at war.

Do you think Nintendo should have kept this a secret until Fire Emblem: Three Houses was released? Let us know with a comment.
