※Please note that this article includes some spoilers since it’s been a month since it released.
Mafuyu(^q^)/ :Hi guys! Have you been checking “Popular Anime Goods” updated every week when you come visit Goods Republic?
Mafuyu(^q^)/ :Guess what…? Recently, Anime… I mean the Goods of a certain game has been ranked in! It’s THIS!!!
Mafuyu(^q^)/ :It looks like this game is the latest one of the Fire Emblem series, which was released from Nintendo Switch! I recognized it because I’ve heard the news saying the person, who was in charge of the character design of Uta no Prince-sama, did the the character design of this game too…
Mafuyu(^q^)/ :Sigh… but I cannot play it because I don’t have a Nintendo Switch. I hope someone, who has a Nintendo Switch and also plays FE: Three Houses, can share some charms of this game with me…
Saori(゜∇ ゜) “That’s me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
Mafuyu(^q^)/ :Really?? Saori-Senpai, who works at Otaku Republic, which is our (Goods Republic) sister site!! Happy Birthday, by the way!
Saori(゜∇ ゜) “Thank you for introducing me! So, everybody at Goods Republic! I, who have played this game, will show you how attractive Fire Emblem: Three Houses is…”
【FE：Three Houses】I asked Otaku (Senpai from Republic) about the Three Charms.
★The students are adorable
Saori(゜∇ ゜) “This is it! This has to be it~~~!!”
Mafuyu(^q^)/ :Hmmm…. The students…?
Saori(゜∇ ゜) “Fire Emblem: Three Houses starts when a mercenary, as a main character, becomes a teacher at the Military Academy! And then we choose which class we (a homeroom teacher) will take care of, out of the three classes, managed by the people from the three local areas!”
Most of them are from nobles. They are from the countries where the emperors govern.
The leader is Edelgard, who is the next emperor candidate.
Most of the students here have aptitude of the swords and the magic and are good at the long-distance battles, while they are poor at the short-distance battle.
They are from the countries where the Kings govern. Most of the students are the Kings or the Knights who serve the Kings.
The leader is a son of the King, Dimitri.
So many students have the aptitude of the Knights and the swords, and the battle is easiest out of the three classes.
This class is considered to be the first one to choose for the beginners.
They are from the countries, where neither Kings nor Emperors govern, and only influential people cooperate with each other and govern the areas.
The leader is a son of one of the influential people, Claude.
Most of the students here have a good balance of the aptitude of the long, short and magic battles and can deal with things flexibly. But the thing is… as they have such in a good balance, they tend to be in a tough spot when someone falls down.
Mafuyu(^q^)/ :Wow! Each class is different like that, huh?
Saori(゜∇ ゜) “Yep! As for the Blue Lions, most of them are the Knights and the Royal families, so they tend to be childhood friends, having a diligent and polite manner even though some lack flexibilities because of such characters. As for the Black Eagles, even though Edelgard is a princess, the relationship between her and the students are rather frank and friendly, communicating very comfortably. As for the Golden deer, nobody is the King, which makes everybody so equal that everybody interacts with each other in a relaxing atmosphere... Like this, each class has full of charms!!!”
Mafuyu(^q^)/ :Who’s your recommended Chara, Saori Senpai?!
Saori(゜∇ ゜) “I gotta say that’s Dimitri-Kun ~~~~!!!! He is a pure clumsy boy. He really knows that he will be the next Prince, is currently the leader of the class and is a representative of the country, so his attitude in class is so good and he has such a high sword technique too! ….However, there’s one problem in his private life… He cannot take his mind off his work, which means he’s never dated with girls, never cooked… Since he’s too powerful, he breaks the needle when he tries to sew stuff, which makes me think he’s so adorable…”
Saori(゜∇ ゜) “We can say the same thing to other characters too! While they have good points, they are poor at other sides… As the teachers and the students communicate with each other during the class or the tea party, they get to know each other by sharing their good and bad points… I’m telling you! You will come to like the students in your class more and more!! That’s the best part of this game!!”
★The story is dramatic!!!!
Mafuyu(^q^)/ :Oh yeah! I actually like such a story, where the students and the teachers can communicate with each other! Can’t wait to play…!
Saori(゜∇ ゜) “Oh wait! Actually, Fire Emblem Series is a story based on the war! The players, homeroom teachers, hope that all our adorable students can graduate at peace and we can have a peaceful year together but here is a thing… Something disquiet starts happening inside and outside of the school…”
Saori(゜∇ ゜) “When the students are about to graduate from school, an incident occurred. The three countries (areas) made a decision to launch the war, losing a good balance. The students from other classes become enemies because of that. The main character, a player, becomes a mercenary of his/her country (class) and starts watching over how the war is going to end.”
Saori(゜∇ ゜) “The player, who got involved with the war, will see one of the students five years later…”
Mafuyu(^q^)/ :What? Who is it?
Saori(゜∇ ゜) “It’s Dimitri-Kun five years later.”
★The element of the battle and the speedrun is fun!!!
Saori(゜∇ ゜) “So! The player never wants such adorable students to die, right? That’s why some of them train the students so hard between the classes so they can fight and survive! That’s one of the interesting elements too!”
Mafuyu(^q^)/ :You said… interesting…?
Saori(゜∇ ゜) “Yes I did! Very much! The battle in Fire Emblem: Three Houses doesn’t require us the technique. All we do is to set up the main character and the students on the field and have them fight against the enemies, using magic, swords, by fulfilling the designated winning conditions!”
Mafuyu(^q^)/ :Select the command and attack, then take turns… I’ve done this kind of battle in Persona5, though….
Saori(゜∇ ゜) “Yeah! Just like that! It’s more like three-dimensional, compared to the battle in Persona5, though… We have to bear in mind particular things such as we can use bows and magic for the distant attack or we can use swords only to the enemies close to us…!”
Mafuyu(^q^)/ :I see! What else? Are there any charms of the battle?
Saori(゜∇ ゜) “Of course! For instance, students have the natural aptitude such as being good at using swords or magic but you don’t always have to follow them. Instead, you can set up the career… the battle type on your own too!”
Mafuyu(^q^)/ :Right! That means, the battle style differs, depending on each player, huh?
Saori(゜∇ ゜) “Yep! As I talked with other players, some said they made a student a swordsman and others said they made another student a witch~! Like this, it’s so interesting to know that we see so many differences in the same scenario!”
Mafuyu(^q^)/ :That means we can create the best magic troop too… right?
Saori(゜∇ ゜) “Yes, we can!! (they might get ruined when the strong enemy, who is very good at the magic attack, shows up, though..)”
“Three countries, three classes and YOUR story.”
Saori(゜∇ ゜) “This game was one of the interesting games among all the games I’ve played in 2019! For those who have a Nintendo Switch, it’s definitely worth getting it.”
Mafuyu(^q^)/ :Thank you for sharing so many info with me! So you guys! Why don’t you give it a try to Fire Emblem: Three Houses?”
Oki-doki! I’ll see you guys at the next update! Bye~!
