Fire Emblem: Three Houses is just around the corner and being the lucky so-and-sos that we are, we've been playing through the game's opening stages to bring you our initial impressions. Well, when we say 'we', we actually mean our lovely video producer, Zion, who has shared his thoughts in the video above.

We'd urge you to check out the video to get the full rundown on this one; Zion talks you through the game's story - including the whole house-choosing process, how the game's opening works, and your character selection; school life, including how you spend your time and the quests you'll be taking on; as well as the game's battles themselves, of course.

There's a whole lot to talk about here, and we've barely scratched the surface of what the game has to offer. Games as large as this one can be an incredibly daunting prospect, but as mentioned above, we're now more excited than ever to play through the full thing and we think you should be too.

Make sure to watch the video and let us know your thoughts. Naturally, we'll share a full review of the game on the site a little closer to the game's release date of 26th July.
