We are less than 24 hours away from the arrival of Fire Emblem Three Houses, and fans cannot wait. Especially since the first wave of reviews have come in and called the game a near-masterpiece in regards to both gameplay, story, and the choices you make. The game has already been touted as featuring 80 hours of gameplay PER HOUSE that you play. And now, we know that the gameplay is going to go even farther via DLC.
It was confirmed via Famitsu that a free update will come to the game and add the beloved “Lunatic” difficulty. The team said it will arrive shortly, they just ask for a little patience.
Then, in an interview with IGN (who gave Three Houses a 9.5/10), Intelligent Systems Director Toshiyuki Kusakihara talked to them about the potential for an Advance Wars sequel after Three Houses is done. He noted that they “couldn’t even think about what’s coming after Fire Emblem” because of the content that is still coming.
“While we can say that we’re working on the DLC and there’s going to be a lot of content [for Fire Emblem], we really don’t even have the time to even think about what we’re going to be doing afterward,” Kusakihara said via translation. “We will be pretty busy, but we’ll keep working with Intelligent Systems and Koei Tecmo on all of this content that’s coming.”
So it looks like Fire Emblem fans will have a lot to look forward to in the upcoming months with Three Houses. And stay tuned to our thoughts about the game as we make our own review and talk about it on the Nintendo Entertainment Podcast!
