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 on July 26, 2019.


This section has been marked as a stub. Please help improve the page by adding information.

The game features four main characters: Byleth, the playable Avatar unit, and the leaders of the titular three houses, Edelgard, Dimitri, and Claude.[3] Byleth, after arriving at the Garreg Mach Monastery and given a teaching position, chooses one of the three houses to teach; this choice will have ramifications for both students and teachers down the road.

Part I: White Clouds

After an "unexpected incident", Byleth travels to the Officer's Academy at the Garreg Mach Monastery and is offered a position as a teacher. They also begin having visions of a mysterious girl named Sothis.

Unit attributes

Main article: Crests (Three Houses)

Crests are a new unit attribute introduced in the game. Based on what has been revealed about them so far they are alike to Holy Blood. Several characters in the game, descended from historic heroes, possess crests that grant them particular abilities during combat.


Characters possess the standard set of stats the Fire Emblem series is known for. 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.

Two new battle stats can also be seen: "Prt" (presumably for protection; Japanese: 防御 defense) and "Rsl" (presumably for resilience; Japanese: 耐魔 magic endurance), and they are possibly the battle equivalents to defense and resistance, akin to strength/magic and attack. There is also a new stat labeled "Cha" (presumably for charisma or charm; Japanese: 魅力 charm).


Many characters start in the mechanically identical Commoner or Noble classes and may change classes upon reaching level 5; doing so does not reset the character's level. In order to take an examination, the character must spend an exam pass; passing is based on a percentage chance, which can be increased through their abilities. Characters can freely reclass between any class they have unlocked. Any class can use any weapon, but certain classes specialize in certain weapons. Characters have affinity towards and against certain classes.


New to the series, units are now able to equip batallions, groups of generic characters, to accompany them in battle. Different battalions give different benefits and also allow access to new abilities.

Garreg Mach Monastery

Main article: Garreg Mach Monastery

The Garreg Mach Monastery serves as the game's "hub" for at least Part 1 of the game. It, on the surface, can be likened to My Castle in Fire Emblem Fates, however it is far larger and has more features.

The Officers Academy, housed within Garreg Mach, allows the player to set up teaching schedules and goals for their chosen house. During the weekends, when the player is not teaching, the player may freely walk around the grounds to speak with students, give advice, plan meals, or partake in battles.


Viewing available activities in the calendar.
Main article: Calendar

The calendar is a system used to visualize the course of a single chapter in the game. During weekdays the player spends time teaching their students; on weekends, the player can, as mentioned above, wander the grounds or begin battles. On the last weekend of every month there is a mandatory battle serving as the ending of the chapter and progression to the next.

Returning features

The game brings back the durability attribute of weapons after its absence from Fire Emblem Fates and Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia. Additionally, when weapons break they stay in the unit's inventory in its broken state instead of vanishing.


Main article: Dismount

Dismount marks its return to the Fire Emblem series with this game. It is a feature that hasn't been seen in a Fire Emblem game since Fire Emblem: Thracia 776, twenty years ago. Currently the exact effects of dismounting are unknown.

World map

Main article: World map

Once again a form of the world map returns as a feature, however it is closer to Fire Emblem Fates's version of the world map, where it instead serves as a background for the game's chapter select. The world map is not known to be explorable like the one in Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones, Fire Emblem Awakening, or Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia.

Divine Pulse

Main article: Divine Pulse

Divine Pulse is an old feature with a new name; similar to Mila's Turnwheel, it allows the player to rewind their actions during battle. It is an ability granted from Sothis to Byleth.

Combat arts

Main article: Combat art

Combat arts make their return from Echoes: Shadows of Valentia, however they are slightly different. Unlike their first appearance, they no longer cost HP and instead consume multiple points of durability of the weapon used to perform the art. Additionally, combat arts are learned as the unit becomes more proficient with certain weapon types, instead of being learned from and connected to specific individual weapons.

Main article: List of chapters in Fire Emblem: Three Houses

In Three Houses each standard chapter consists of one calendar month in the game. Additionally, the game is currently known to be divided into two parts, Part I is known to possess at least 12 months, the duration of Part II is unknown.


According to credits on promotional images of the Seasons of Warfare edition of the game, Koei Tecmo is involved with the development of the game in some way,[1] though details are currently unknown. Koei Tecmo has previously come into contact with the Fire Emblem series through Fire Emblem Warriors.


Main article: Fire Emblem: Three Houses pre-release information

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.

After another lengthy absence the game resurfaced again in February 2019 during Nintendo's Nintendo Direct presentation and received a story trailer and confirmed release date of July 26, 2019, marking another, though much smaller, delay, from spring 2019 to early summer 2019.



  • Three Houses is the first mainline Fire Emblem game to have a single, worldwide release date.
  • The name of the Seasons of Warfare limited edition of the game appears to be in reference to the game's Japanese title. See the etymology and other languages section below for details.
