Fire Emblem: Three Houses pre-release information

From Fire Emblem Wiki, your source on Fire Emblem information. By fans, for fans.

A new game in the Fire Emblem series was announced in the Fire Emblem Nintendo Direct in early 2017, later revealed, after a year and a half without any new information, as Fire Emblem: Three Houses at Nintendo's E3 presentation on June 12th 2018. After a six-month-long drought of information, the game received a concrete release date and more detailed trailer during Nintendo's February 13 2019 Nintendo direct. Following that, information on the game began to be revealed more consistently, including a presentation at E3 2019 showing off much of the game's story and gameplay, culminating in the game's release on July 26th, 2019.

Pre-release history

Initial announcement (January 18, 2017)

Three Houses was initially announced on January 18th, 2017 in the Fire Emblem Nintendo Direct. At the time, it was announced without a 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. This drought of information would continue for the entirety of 2017, with Intelligent Systems focusing on the soon-to-be-released products Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia, Fire Emblem Heroes and Fire Emblem Warriors instead.

Full reveal (June 12, 2018)

English gameplay from the June 12th reveal trailer.

After about a year and a half without any information, the game received a full reveal trailer at Nintendo's 2018 E3 showing on June 12th. The trailer demonstrated small sections of story and gameplay, and Nintendo announced that the game would release in Spring 2019, marking a delay from its initial 2018 release window.

Notably, unlike previous Fire Emblem series reveals, the first footage revealed in any region showed English gameplay instead of Japanese. Unlike Tokyo Mirage Sessions ♯FE, Fire Emblem Fates, and Fire Emblem Warriors, Three Houses was not played by the Treehouse Staff during the post-presentation live stream.

Outside of Nintendo's official pre-release materials, 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.[1]

Reveal trailer observations

Curiously, there are minor statistical differences between the English and Japanese trailers. It is unclear what this may have implied, such as semi-random base stats or ongoing balancing, at that point. A compilation of the differences are featured below

Japanese vs English trailer comparisons
Japanese footage English footage
Ss fe16 edelgard class jp.png Ss fe16 edelgard class.png
Edelgard appears to possess more defense (end) and resistance (rsl) in the Japanese trailer, according to her battle stats in the bottom right.
Ss fe16 edelgard vs mercedes combat forecast jp.png Ss fe16 edelgard vs mercedes combat forecast.png
Matching Edelgard's increased defensive stats, Mercedes is forecast to do less damage to Edelgard in the Japanese trailer. In the English trailer it seems Mercedes may have fought someone before this footage was recorded, as her Iron Sword has been reduced by two durability points compared to the Japanese trailer.
Ss fe16 cursor on edelgard jp.png Ss fe16 cursor on edelgard.png
Edelgard's HP is inconsistent in this scene between the two trailers, possessing 30 in the Japanese one and 29 in the English one. Additionally, Edelgard's HP is at 29 in an earlier point of the Japanese trailer, despite being the same level, 3, as this segment.
Ss fe16 byleth vs hilda combat forecast jp.png Ss fe16 byleth vs hilda combat forecast.png
Byleth's damage output and critical chance is higher in the English trailer. Hilda is also forecast to do more damage to Byleth in the Japanese trailer than the English trailer. In the English trailer Hilda's Iron Bow and Byleth's Iron Sword both have less durability (45) than in the Japanese trailer (50); it is unclear if the durability has been lowered or if the characters used their weapons some before the footage was taken in the English trailer.

Nintendo Direct trailer (February 13, 2019)

Promotional image of the North American version of the Seasons of Warfare edition.

After another long period of silence, the game resurfaced in Nintendo's Feburary 2019 Nintendo Direct. Prior to the airing of the Direct, Three Houses was confirmed to appear in the broadcast on Nintendo's social media accounts.[2] During the Nintendo direct the game was confirmed for a worldwide release date of July 26th 2019.

The direct introduced the game's eponymous three houses, the Black Eagles, Blue Lions, and Golden Deer. Also featured was some elaboration to the game's world and setting, discussing the houses, the Garreg Mach Monastery, the powers of Fódlan, and the Church of Seiros.

With the game's appearance in the Nintendo Direct, official pages went up for the game across several different languages. In particular, a Japanese Nintendo article for the game confirmed that the character artist for the game is Chinatsu Kurahana (Japanese: 倉花千夏).[3]

The Seasons of Warfare special edition of the game for North America, containing an artbook, sound selection CD, steelbook case, and calendar, was also announced on Nintendo of America's social media account.[4] On the same day, the Seasons of Warfare special edition of the game for the UK was announced on Nintendo UK's twitter account, with different contents: the same art book and steelbook case, but different art on the box, a sound selection on a custom USB, and a pin set based on the emblems of the three houses.[5] On March 8, the Japanese special edition—the Fódlan Collection—was revealed, containing an artbook, a sound selection CD, and a steelbook case featuring artwork distinct from the Seasons of Warfare editions.[6]

Nintendo Direct trailer observations

Like the E3 2018 trailer there are several minor differences between the Japanese and English trailers.

Japanese vs English trailer comparisons
Japanese footage English footage
Ss fe16 attacking with bernadetta jp.jpg Ss fe16 attacking with bernadetta.png
Some scenes of the Japanese version may be from a different build of the game, as some instances of map geometry and texturing are different. There are also instances of changed lighting and different shadows.

The difference in ground/rock textures carries over to the battle scene as well.

Some of the characters shown activating the Gambit Boost appear to be in different outfits. The lighting here has a different tinting. Additionally, the hairline on Edelgard's model appears to have been tweaked slightly.

First Famitsu article (April 22-25, 2019)

Famitsu's preview of its May 2019 issue.

Famitsu's online preview for its May 2019 issue, which was to include an article on Three Houses, was posted online on April 22nd.[7] It announced that the upcoming issue would discuss gameplay mechanics and the game story, and would feature several new screenshots and character artwork.

When the issue released on April 25, it discussed several mechanics.[8] Terrain effects, such as warp tiles and healing tiles were shown. The class system was discussed, mentioning that the Noble and Commoner classes can wield any weapon and progress to more specialized classes. The magazine provided a blurb on the game story as well.

"Armies flooding the plains, a violent clash, a battle's end. Then a mysterious girl appears. Night after night, the protagonist–a member of their father's mercenary band–always experiences this strange dream. One day, after having the same dream multiple times, they found youths being attacked by bandits. The protagonist shielded the youths from a bandit's blade and, at that moment, time stopped and the girl from their dreams appeared. The girl Sothis saved the protagonist's life by using her powers to rewind time. She allowed the protagonist to borrow her power and vanished. The protagonist discovers that the youths attacked by the bandits were students from the officer's academy at the Garreg Mach Monastery–and the future leaders of the three largest nations of Fódlan. After saving the youths, the protagonist's power was recognized and they were invited to the academy to become a professor. This invitation will forever change the protagonist's fate..."[8]

The article also revealed several character details: Byleth's father Jeralt was once a legendary knight of Seiros, Sothis has amnesia, and a general personality description for Claude, Dimitri, and Edelgard.[8] Additionally, the article included several screenshots of conversations between Byleth and students around the Monastery.[9]

The article also covered Divine Pulse (Japanese: 天刻の拍動), a turn-rewinding mechanic similar to Mila's Turnwheel from Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia.[8]

Character profiles on social media (April 25-July 8)

Coinciding with the release of the first Famitsu article on April 25, 2019, the Japanese Fire Emblem Twitter account began to post a brief profile of a character, both students and faculty, along with artwork and a short clip of a cutscene of the character talking; they were usually posted on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday of a week, though some bios were posted on other days while some days were missed. Byleth was the first character to receive such a bio,[10] while the final profile was on Cyril, posted on July 6.[11]

On May 18, when Hanneman's profile was posted, an additional cutscene where Hanneman explained the nature of Crests[12] and a screenshot of Byleth looking at a Crest[13] were posted as well. Catherine, whose bio was posted on June 15, received an additional cutscene featuring her—a portion of which had been seen in the February Nintendo Direct—with a description of the Heroes' Relics,[14] as well as an additional post referring to the sword Byleth wields as the "Sword of the Creator" and calling it one of the Heroes Relics.[15] In addition to students and staff, some of the major antagonists were given profiles as well: the Flame Emperor and the Death Knight were both given bios on May 30th,[16][17] and the three villains revealed in the June 19th Famitsu article—Kronya, Solon, and Thales—were all given bios on June 22;[18][19][20] each of these characters were only accompanied by screenshots and not a portion of a cutscene, likely to avoid revealing any story details.

One day after the Japanese Twitter account posted Byleth's profile, the UK Fire Emblem Facebook page began posting character bios in English. These bios featured a description of the character, but lacked any in-game screenshots or cutscenes, hosting only a piece of official artwork for each character. Byleth's bio was posted on April 26th,[21] and the next four profiles coincided with the Japanese Twitter posts. Afterwards, posts became less regular, with 11 posts over about two months. Jeralt and Rhea received profiles, then one student from each of the three houses would be profiled together. The Flame Emperor and the Death Knight each received a bio,[22][23] and the final profile on July 8th was of the members of "those who slither in the dark": Solon, Thales, and Kronya.[24]

Second Famitsu article (May 14-15, 2019)

Famitsu's preview of its June 2019 issue.

Famitsu's preview of its second article on Three Houses was posted online on May 15th. The preview included artwork of Hilda and a screenshot of a conversation between Bernadetta and Dorothea. The preview announced the article would include character introductions and looks into the Skill, Crest, Battalion, and Academy systems.[25]

The full issue was released on May 15th. It included an overview of Skills and Crests as well as the profiles of 10 characters, including, revealing their personal skills and crests. The article further described the function of Battalions and Gambits, things hinted at in the full reveal in June of the previous year. The article introduced the new weapon type—Gauntlets—and the intermediate-level classes, and included an in-depth look at the Academy mechanics and how they work.[26]

The article concluded with a description of the Church of Seiros and the Crests, including two blurbs:

"The Church of Seiros, which is deeply rooted in Fódlan, was founded by the Divine Seiros. In the distant past, they fought against the Liberation King Nemesis during the War of Heroes, to restore order to Fódlan. It’s said they helped to establish the Adrestian Empire as well. As time passed, the Holy Kingdom of Faerghus became independent, and later the Leciester Alliance split off as well. A long war was fought over supremacy. However, in the present era, the nations exist in equilibrium and it’s largely thanks to the Church of Seiros."[26]
"Many of the nobility, who are descended from Fódlan’s Ten Greats who fought during the War of Heroes, hail from families that bear crests. Crests are passed down by bloodline, but not all descendants inherit crests and only a small number of people can invoke their abilities. Crests are divided into “Major Crests” that contain immense power and “Minor Crests” whose power is weaker. Generally, it’s believed the stronger the hero’s blood, the higher the chance of having a major crest. But a child with a major crest can suddenly be born and the reason behind this is currently unknown."[26]

u/thanibomb leaks (May 15)

On May 15, 2019, Reddit user u/thanibomb made a post to the r/fireemblem subreddit claiming to have inside information on Three Houses, and would answer questions on the game in a question-and-answer format in the comments of the post, additionally claiming that they had "sprinkled a few 'hints' here and there for the past few weeks". In their replies, some of thanibomb's claims included Claude gaining a wyvern upon promotion, Dimitri getting an eyepatch and a change of hairstyle, the presence of a five-year time skip, and the identity of the swordswoman Catherine.[27] While thanibomb did not directly substantiate their claims, many of them were directly confirmed by the E3 2019 trailer later that year, and the leak was accepted as true.

Third Famitsu article (May 28-29)

Famitsu's preview of its July 2019 issue.

Famitsu's preview of its third Three Houses article was posted online on May 28th, 2019. It included artwork of the Death Knight and the Flame Emperor. The preview announced the article would include information on the earlier stage of the story and character interactions.[28]

The full issue was released on May 29th, 2019. The article included profiles for the Death Knight and Flame Emperor and an overview of how choosing a house would affect the game's story. The article described how ally units interact on the battlefield: the Support and Gambit systems. Also included were a few examples of things on a battle map that could be interacted with and a brief mention of dropable items. The article included further descriptions of other intermediate classes not mentioned in the previous article.[29] The article included a lengthy analysis of the activities that can be performed at the Monastery during a weekend before concluding with six new student profiles.[30]

E3 2019 (June 11-12)

Byleth in the E3 Direct trailer.

During Nintendo's 2019 E3 Direct, a trailer for Three Houses was included as a part of a sequence of trailers, later uploaded on it's own to Nintendo's YouTube channel. The trailer focused on the game's story, revealing a five-year time skip and new designs for Byleth, Edelgard, Dimitri, and Claude.[31] The next day, Three Houses was the first game of Nintendo Treehouse's live demonstration, later uploaded on its own as well. The Treehouse presentation was split into three parts; the first part demonstrated various activities that could be performed at the Monastery, both the instructional an weekend portions, while the second and third parts focused on battles: the first near a town featuring a large beast, the second inside featuring the Death Knight. The Treehouse presentation served as the first official English look into the game's mechanics, demonstrating the combat art and Divine Pulse systems as well as the Monastery phase.[32]

While Nintendo Treehouse demoed the game live, many gaming publications were given a chance to play a demo of a battle map featuring a large beast referred to as the "King of Beasts". Some publications' recordings of the demo were uploaded to their respective YouTube channels,[33][34] while other publications chose instead to write articles on the subject.[35]

Fourth Famitsu article (June 17-21)

Famitsu's preview of its fourth Three Houses article.

Famitsu's preview of its fourth Three Houses article was posted online on June 17, 2019. It included artwork of Edelgard, Dimitri, and Claude's designs after the time skip. The preview announced the article would cover the story after the five year time skip and new systems and characters.[36]

Famitsu's full article was released on June 19th, 2019.[37] The article included screenshots showing the time skip designs of Felix and Bernadetta, as well as profiles for nine students and three new villains, Thales, Solon, and Kronya. The article further detailed activities available at the Monastery prior to the time skip and advanced classes.[37]

Famitsu's online article featured more images than its physical release, including artwork of Anna and the three new villains, screenshots of the time skip designs of Ashe, Lorenz, Hilda, Caspar, and Felix, and more screenshots of the various activities at the monastery.[38]

Japanese Overview trailer and commercials (July 3)

On July 3rd, Nintendo uploaded an overview trailer for Three Houses to their Japanese YouTube channel,[39] along with four short commercials. The trailer highlighted information previously revealed by prior trailers and Famitsu articles, though the clips show new maps, cutscenes, character models, etc. The trailer concludes with a clip from a cutscene of Byleth and Edelgard fighting after the time skip, then a mention of the expansion pass.[40]

The first two commercials focused on the story of the game without particular focus with relation to the time skip,[41][42] the third focused on gameplay from before the time skip,[43] and the final focused on the students prior to the time skip.[44]

Japan Expo (June 27-July 5)

On June 27th, it was announced that Three Houses would be presented at the Japan Expo in Paris, France by Chief Graphic Designer Toshiyuki Kusakihara and Director Genki Yokota on July 5th.[45] The presentation demonstrated some of the Academy portion of the game and the previously-seen King of Beasts map.[46] Later at the Japan Expo, Kusakihara and Yokota were interviewed by French gaming website Jeuxvideo on the development of Three Houses. Among the topics discussed were the game's online features and the 80 hour play time of a single route.[47]

Fifth Famitsu article (July 9-11)

On July 9th, Famitsu's preview of its fifth article on Three Houses was released, featuring art of, and promising to cover, the Demonic Beasts.[48]

The full article released on July 11th. It covered the unique attributes of monsters, such as their increased size, breakable barrier, and powerful Staggering Blows. The article contained a list of some of the locations in Garreg Mach Monastery and some of their associated activities, such as the Drill Grounds and the Library. The article concluded with a description of the advanced classes not previously discussed in the previous article.[49] The online version of the article, released later that day, included higher quality images and more of them, including screenshots of some of the texts in the Monastery Library.[50]

Sixth Famitsu article (July 16-18)

Famitsu previewed its sixth Three Houses article on July 16th. The preview announced that the upcoming article would include a summary of the information Famitsu had revealed previously as well as reviews from some of Famitsu's writers.[51]

The full article released on July 18th; the physical issue included a scored review, information summary, and "play reviews", while the online article only included the play reviews. Famitsu awarded Three Houses with a score of 37 out of 40, putting it on par with Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia for the highest score in the series. Famitsu's play reviews were written by three different writers, each with a different level of experience with the series and each playing a different route.[52]

Other

Nintendo posted articles on Three Houses to their Japanese website coinciding with Direct trailers, and the official Three Houses website was updated periodically with character bios and information that had been provided in previous Directs or Famitsu articles.

Various YouTube personalities were given the opportunity to preview Three Houses alongside Nintendo Treehouse. Starting June 25th, recordings of these previews were uploaded to YouTube. The demo was comprised of a portion of the Academy section during the 8th month, then the map featuring the King of Beasts from the E3 demos.[53][54]

On July 12, many gaming outlets began releasing previews of Three Houses, presumably indicating the release on the embargo of information on Part I.[55]

On July 24, two days prior to the start of the game, Famitsu previewed their final pre-release article on Three Houses. The issue was to include a summary of all the information on the game that had already been revealed, an overview of the first few chapters of the game, and an interview with the game's directors, totaling 40 pages;[56] the full issue was released the next day.[57]
