The third character to be showcased on the official Japanese Twitter account is Balthus (source 1,2), voiced by Subaru Kimura.

He’s a rather rough dude from the Leicester Alliance, self-proclaimed “Leicester’s Fighting King.”

His over-the-top and carefree personality led him to be chased out of his country and he is now hiding in Abyss.

Driven by his desire to protect the people of Abyss and by his powerful survival instinct, he’s ready to beat up any intruder.

You can check him out below.

The Cindered Shadows DLC will be released on February 12. It’ll also be accompanied by a free update. If you’d like to see more, you can enjoy the original announcement and a look at the leader of the Ashen Wolves, Yuri, and another member, Constance.

Fire Emblem: Three Houses is available exclusively for Nintendo Switch, and it shipped  2.29 million units as of September 30, 2019. If you want to know the reasons behind its success, you can check out our review

Proud weeb hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long-standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality), MMORPGs, and visual novels are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans on Earth of the flight simulator genre.
