Today Nintendo and Intelligent Systems shared a couple of interesting reveals about their upcoming strategy JRPG Fire Emblem: Three Houses with a video, a screenshot, and new artwork.
First of all, we get the introduction of a new teacher at the academy, Hanneman.
He is a scholar who has been studying the power of the “crests” granted by the Goddess. He usually keeps his cool, but when it comes to crests, he forgets his surroundings and becomes completely immersed.
In particular, he can’t hide his interest in the mysterious crest held by the protagonist. It appears that he doesn’t get along well with his colleague Manuela.
He is voiced by Kenji Hamada, known for a ton of popular roles including Hazama in Fire Emblem Fates, Estinien in Final Fantasy XIV, Valerio Giacosa in Muv-Luv Alternative: Total Eclipse, DJ in the Street Fighter series, and many more.
Crests are something that very few people are granted. Their power is said to come from the goddess, originally granted to heroes and saints, and inherited by nobles who are their descendants. Yet, not even all the nobles have a crest, as it’s a very rare gift and a symbol of power.
Generally, only nobles are known to hold a crest, but as the main character cooperates with Hanneman’s research, they discover to have a crest of their own. Since the main character is a commoner, the reason why they hold a crest is unknown.
You can check out all the new images below. If you want to see and learn more of the game, you can enjoy lots of videos and images from yesterday, the screenshots and video showing Eldegard, more for Dimitri, assets for Claude, screenshot and video showing Jeralt, and even more starring Rea.
We also have the introduction of Sothis, a look at the main hero and heroine Beres and Beret (or Byleth as they’re named in English), the introduction of Hubert, the reveal of Doudo, the introduction of Manuela, that of Dorothea, the reveal of Felix, and the assets introducing Hilda.
ire Emblem: Three Houses will release on July 26 exclusively for Nintendo Switch.
