Fire Emblem: Three Houses

Some of the first reviews for Fire Emblem: Three Houses are now starting to go live. We’ve rounded up a number of the early verdicts below.

A day-one update for Fire Emblem: Three Houses is now available. Nintendo has issued version 1.0.1, so those who have access to the game already should be able to download the patch.

As for what the update entails, one added element is the “Additional Contents” link on the title screen in which players can access the eShop. Also, the protagonist’s outfit can be changed in your room, which is reflected in the Monastery and battles. Those who purchase the Expansion Pass can put on the Officers Academy Uniform. Lastly, Nintendo says: “Several issues have been fixed to improve gameplay experience.”


Like other Fire Emblem games, Three Houses will include a few different difficulty levels and settings. Lunatic won’t be available right away, but it’s confirmed that it’ll be coming later on.

Genki Yokota, the director for Fire Emblem: Three Houses at Nintendo, shared the news in an interview with Famitsu this week. Players will be able to access the Lunatic difficulty following a free patch shortly after launch. This will provide an extra challenge for experienced players. He said, “please wait just a little bit [for the update].”

We’re currently working on a full translation of Famitsu’s interview, so stay tuned.
