The land of Fodlan is in danger. The Church of Seiros that hosts the supreme Officer’s Academy inside its headquarters, maintains the rules and regulations in Fodlan. The goal of users is to train 1 of the 3 houses that contains pupils. Playing as the teacher, users need to lead their pupils in their academic career & use them to execute turn-based, tactical role-playing combats. This game offers new twists to the game story. It is up to the users, which house & direction, they decide.

The three main heroes of Fire Emblem: Three Houses: Edelgard, Claude & Dimitri are back to show their battle potential as users go back to a battle torn Fodlan in War Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes.

Fire Emblem initially launched in Japan only, but the series slowly became famous in the west, but when Fire Emblem: Three Houses launched on the Switch, the franchise quickly became famous due to its awesome tactics. Most of the Fire Emblem games are different from each other but when Fire Emblem: Three Houses became famous due to its excellent story, locations & awesome cast of characters, it seemed like the sequel would follow the same trail.

Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes is slated to launch exclusively on Nintendo Switch on 24 June 2022. The predecessor was also only released on Nintendo Switch.

Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes is based on Fire Emblem: Three Houses:

Fire Emblem: Three Houses is more than a video game & in fact, it is a building block. It gives a good direction to the series & I would like upcoming Fire Emblem games to proceed in the same direction. However, it is not where I want it to be yet, so I am expecting more content with better dynamic characters but I want the game to progress in the same direction. I hope that Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes is improved compared to Fire Emblem: Three Houses, but I would love to see new ideas.


What is new & improved in Three Hopes?

Execute destructible combos & strike your enemies with special moves in real time battle.

Rip through swarms of rivals taken from the predecessor. Beat many enemies with Dimitri’s lance or Edelgard’s axe or blast rivals from a range with Claude’s bow.


New playable character is available in Three Hopes:

All heroes of Fire Emblem: Three Houses are back in the sequel. Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes is again set in Fodlan that has been shattered by battle. The new hero, the purple-haired Shez is now available to be chosen.

What we have seen in Three Hopes trailer:

The sequel seems to offer three narrative paths as players can advance through the gameplay depending on the decisions they make. Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes is set in the same location, & it has the same characters, as Fire Emblem Three Houses, the events of the predecessor would not affect the narrative of the sequel. The new enemy "Byleth" looks like the key focus of battle. How players decide to cooperate with the other houses might depend on which narrative path users’ choose.


Gameplay style of Three Hopes:

Three Hopes uses similar gameplay to Warriors style. While playing the game, players can play as one or maybe more than one heroes from the predecessor & traverse through large arenas, finishing goals, improving their abilities, & mowing down swarms of rivals that come in their way. Special moves are available that cause greater damage & every hero has its own special moves.


A new mount is available in Three Hopes:

Mounts from Fire Emblem: Three Houses are available in the sequel but now players can ride dragons too. Dragons provide lots of mobility to the users, & new moves. We have also seen some large creatures too that seem to be the enemy bosses.


Three Hopes offers a combat map:

A combat map is available in Free Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes, which displays the areas that are in control of players plus regions they must conquer, & more information is available.


New & old heroes are available in Three Hopes:

Byleth was an old protagonist of Three Houses but now he plays the villain role. Heroes from Fire Emblem: Three Houses are available in the sequel & one of them "Byleth" plays the villain role. Three Hopes has a new playable character, Shez. Every hero has a different version that may be a fully diverse hero. If we consider the earlier Fire Emblem Warriors’ list that had 25 characters at release, & 9 additional characters were included later, so the sequel is expected to add more characters.


Multiplayer mode is included in Three Hopes:

Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes is a single player or a multiplayer cooperative game that offers up to two players co-op. Multiplayer mode is confirmed for Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes but it works locally, so users cannot connect or host online sessions with buddies.

Multiplayer mode was not available in Fire Emblem: Three Houses.
