Fire Emblem: Three Houses

Over on the official Japanese Fire Emblem Twitter account, Sothis from Fire Emblem: Three Houses is introduced. She’s voiced by Tomoyo Kurosawa in the Japanese version.

Sothis is a mysterious girl who appears in the hero’s dream. She saves the protagonist using her powers to remind time. After this happens, they are able to communicate as if she was in his head. However, only the protagonist can see her. Sothis lost her memories, and although she may look like a little girl, she speaks more like an old woman.

Here’s a brief clip for Sothis:

We’ve already mostly seen this scene in the latest Nintendo Direct – it’s the one where Byleth, the main character / player avatar, saves Edelgard from a bandit attack. The Direct only showed the version with male Byleth though – this Twitter video also shows the one with the female Avatar:

Also, the Twitter account changed their profile picture to the Fire Emblem: Three Houses version of series staple Anna, which is our first look at her. You can see her in the header image above.

The Fire Emblem series has been constantly changing and evolving over the years, and this is especially true for the character designs. Usually, the series sticks with a character designer for one or two games, then brings in a new one. This also holds true for the next game in the series, Fire Emblem: Three Houses. The identity of the new character designer has been the source of much speculation since the game was revealed last year, but Nintendo has now confirmed on their Japanese website that Chinatsu Kurahana is the one who got the job.

Kurahana is a freelance artist who is most famous for her work on the Uta no Prince-sama series in its various incarnations, from game to manga to anime. She was also the character designer for the Samurai Flamenco anime and the Tokyo Twilight Ghost Hunters game.
