Fire Emblem: Three Houses

This is a big week for Fire Emblem: Three Houses. Between yesterday’s update and new DLC, there are plenty of reasons to return to the Switch game. As part of what’s been added, we’re hearing that there’s now another gay romance option for male Byleth.

Spoilers will naturally follow beyond this point. Consider that before reading further.

Pre-orders for the previously-announced Fire Emblem: Three Houses Edelgard figma are now open. Play-Asia is taking reservations here.

As fans know, Fire Emblem: Three Houses still has more DLC on the way. Thanks to Famitsu’s new guidebook, we have a better idea as to what’s planned.

Fire Emblem: Three Houses was given a pretty significant update this week. It added a new difficulty mode, changed the male actor for male Byleth, and more.

Fans have also picked up on a more subtle change included in this week’s update. As it turns out, Nintendo changed up one of the support conversations a bit. If you don’t mind being spoiled at all, you can find a comparison of how it’s changed below.

Chris Niosi originally voiced male Byleth in Fire Emblem: Three Houses. Now, however, he has been replaced. Today’s update for the game, version 1.0.2, implements the change in English voice actors.

Niosi had already been replaced in Fire Emblem Heroes. He previously admitted to abuse, and apparently broke an NDA after bragging about his role as the player character’s male avatar in Fire Emblem: Three Houses. You can read more about the situation here and here.

Today’s update does not impact the Japanese voice cast.

Update: Full patch notes for update version 1.0.2 added below.
