Koei Tecmo, Nintendo and Intelligent Systems, big release this summer is the fast and frantic Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes for the Nintendo Switch family of systems. Today, they have treated us all with a fresh three minute trailer giving fans of the Fire Emblem franchise and the Warriors games plenty to get their head around with new eye candy and the prospect of Byleth being the new villain. The soundtrack sounds excellent too. Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes launches on 24th June.
“Players can uncover the fates of three great powers when Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes – an original story set in the familiar universe of Fire Emblem: Three Houses – releases for Nintendo Switch on 24th June 2022. The Intertwined fates – Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes (Nintendo Switch) trailer introduces the main protagonist Shez and their most formidable enemy, the Ashen Demon, together with returning main characters, as well as showcasing new gameplay elements.
In this new tale, the future rulers of the three nations that govern Fódlan cross paths with Shez – a mercenary on a mission. How will this chance encounter change the future of the continent? Players will guide Shez through this yet unseen story and its three diverging paths.
In Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes, players can explore the encampment and interact with allies before heading into the fray. It’s possible to enjoy training, tasty meals and conversations together, strengthening bonds and unlocking new abilities that could turn the tide in battle.
Players can give orders to allies in real time, while hacking and slashing through hordes of enemies. Some strategical elements from Fire Emblem: Three Houses, such as Adjutants, are also making a comeback. These allies can protect the player and help them unleash powerful moves called Partner Specials.
Forces can be manoeuvred across the map while keeping an eye on objectives. Extra events, such as the appearance of Survey Spots, the merchant Anna who sells valuable items and more can be found on the map as well.
It’s possible to freely change character classes to be prepared for any enemy encounter. The unique traits of companions with different classes can be utilised for a variety of tactical combinations.”

…Well. I certainly wasn’t expecting that twist.
So we’re playing as an entierly new protagonist, with Byleth instead taking the role of antagonist here?
That’s really cool ngl.
And I’m already in love with these new Three Houses remixes, Koei Tecmo always seem to knock it out of the park with their Warriors game’s music.
Byleth as a villain in this game is really bizarre and strange twist.
Never played 3H, but that aspect was pretty cool to me. I wonder if they’ll try to make it like “they were being controlled the whole time!” or something else, or if they’ll actually stick with it
I’m super hyped for this game. I’m pump up for the new action adventure for the sequel. :D
If I was not excited for this game before, I am now; if I’m right, then between Shez and Byleth, there is a total of 6 routes (which is twice as much as 3 Houses)!
And I LOVE all the time skip designs, especially Claude and Mercedes (my waifu is back 🤗). And on a similar note: I think we have confirmation that Holst and Claude’s father are playable.
This is a good week for Fire Emblem fans 😎
