Are you looking forward to Fire Emblem: Three Houses and you live in the United States? Then check out your local Walmart.
The megapopular Nintendo Switch continues to bolster its portfolio of games while Fire Emblem is nearing the end of the second decade of providing highly-enjoyable tactical gameplay with the latest Three Houses installment.
For those on the western hemisphere unfamiliar with the Fire Emblem franchise, the closest equivalent would be the equally long-standing Might & Magic series. Among many differences, the major one is that you control characters instead of armies in the form of stacks of units on a tactical grid. What isn’t different is that combat gameplay is played out in turns, which rewards patience and careful thinking.
Three Houses will be the first Fire Emblem game on the Nintendo Switch in which you can get reacquainted with all the major characters of the franchise — Ike, Roy, and Marth. (If you recall, those characters are also featured in Super Smash Bros Ultimate.)
This time, you will get to explore the continent named Fódlan. The seat of the continent’s political power lies in the Church of Siros. In line with Fire Emblem’s tradition, you will take the role of an advisor and be able to customize the character to your liking.
Three Houses adds a little twist in that you will serve as a professor at the Officer’s Academy and your students will become your warriors.
In a nutshell, if you prefer to explore the world, grow, and progress your characters by winning battles as a mindful tactician, the game is perfect to fill that need — and if you are in the U.S., Walmart has a pleasant surprise for you.
