Fire Emblem: Three Houses (Japanese: ファイアーエムブレム 風花雪月 Fire Emblem: Wind, Flower, Snow, Moon) is a new Fire Emblem series game releasing for the Nintendo Switch in Spring 2019. Currently, little information is known on it.

The game features three main characters, Edelgard, Dimitri, and Claude. A character referred to as "your protagonist" is also mentioned in press information, this is possibly Byleth, though it is unclear if he is an Avatar unit.[2]

Byleth running to the exit of an alley from the reveal trailer, possibly an exploration segment mentioned in the press release.

During the trailer the character Byleth is shown in what appear to be third-person exploration segments. He is seen walking outdoors near a castle and in an indoors room. The official press release mentions that during these segments the player can interact with allies to build relationships or gather information.[3] This sounds very similar to Fire Emblem Fates's My Castle and Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia's village exploration segments. The wording of the press release implies Byleth is the character called "your protagonist" here, as he is the character shown in what appear to be exploration segments, though it is still unconfirmed if he is an Avatar or if the mechanic is present at all.

Choosing which weapon to tell Edelgard to train with.

Later in the trailer, Byleth is shown talking to Edelgard. It appears that Edelgard is asking Byleth what weapon she should hone her skill in during the mock battle. The two options are axes and swords. Magic is absent, despite it being shown she has a magic command during combat elsewhere in the trailer. The exact gameplay benefits of this command are unknown, but doing this presumably provides some sort of statistical bonus to the training character, possibly an increase to their respective weapon level or equivalent stat.

Attack speed can be seen in the trailer, but it is as of yet unknown if weight returns, though the AS being zero suggests that it does. Weapon durability returns as well, after its absence in Fates and Echoes: Shadows of Valentia. Two new battle stats can also be seen: "End" (for endurance; Japanese: 防御 defense) and "Rsl" (for resilience; Japanese: 耐魔 magic endurance), and they are possibly the battle equivalents to defense and resistance, akin to strength/magic and attack.

The game was initially announced early in 2017 on January 18th in the Fire Emblem Nintendo Direct. At the time it was announced without subtitle and was only presented with the broad release date of "2018". Nothing of the game was shown during its initial announcing except for a generic Fire Emblem logo. No further details were given on the game for over a year until a reveal trailer aired at Nintendo's 2018 E3 showing on June 12th. During the reveal trailer they revealed that the game would release in Spring 2019, marking a delay from its initial 2018 release window.

8-4, the company responsible for translating Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon, Fire Emblem Awakening, and Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia, announced on Twitter that they were not involved with the localization of Three Houses.
