Before the 3DS became popular Fire Emblem games were played on home consoles. With the release of Fire Emblem: Three Houses on the Nintendo Switch, players can play the game on the big screen and the experience is great. Fire Emblem: Three Houses offers an open hub and new ways of turning the tables on enemies in battles.
While the battlefield can be a brutal place, the story matches that. If you are fond of the turn-based strategy genre then Fire Emblem: Three Houses is a game that you should check out. It is exclusive to the Nintendo Switch, so you will need one to be able to play it.
As the name implies, there are three houses that you can choose from and each one has its own twist. So you could play the game three times with a different house each time. Completing the game with a single house can easily take 70 hours, so there is a lot to do and explore in the game and it worth the money that you spend.
The Nintendo Switch is more powerful than the 3DS and you can feel that in the battles. The graphics are better and the gameplay is smooth most of the time. The music shifts according to what is going on in the game and that increases the level of immersion.
The weapon triangle of the older games has been abandoned in the new one. Fire Emblem: Three Houses emphasizes on choosing the right weapon for the right character. Training units can unlock special moves and abilities which you can use to your advantage in the game.
Permadeath can be turned on if you want and it is terrifying to think that you could lose some of your best units forever. You can rewind time and see the enemies move to avoid getting your units killed. These features can come in handy if you do have permadeath enabled.
There are plenty of things that are great about Fire Emblem: Three Houses and combining all these cool features results in a great game. This might be the best Fire Emblem yet.
The Nintendo Switch Lite was recently announced and it is around the corner. The game might be playable on the handheld only device as well.
