Fully Explorable Hub
For the first time in Fire Emblem history, Three Houses will have a fully fleshed out hub area that you’ll be able to explore.
Fire Emblem Fates started this idea with the “My Castle” feature, but now we have the massive Garreg Mach Monastery to run around and explore.
Three Houses casts you as a young warrior named Byleth, who’s been chosen as an instructor at the monastery.
A big part of the gameplay loop in the title revolves around training up your students by hosting seminars, inviting them to tea parties, dining together, and much more.
To do all this, you’ll get to run around the monastery and explore to your heart’s content. On top of all the social features and talking to students, there are plenty of shops to visit and even a few minigames of sorts, like fishing or gardening.
Fire Emblem never really needed explorable locations before now, but Garreg Mach goes a long way toward making the experience even more immersive.
