It’s time for another character introduction for Fire Emblem: Three Houses. Today’s bio is for Cyril, a servant working for Archbishop Rhea.

Here’s his full introduction:

With Toshiyuki Kusakihara and Genki Yokota appearing at Japan Expo, a few outlets have shared interviews with the Fire Emblem: Three Houses developers. Jeuxvideo was one site that was able to speak with them and commented on the future of the weapon triangle, taking full advantage of Switch, the amount of time to complete the game, and amiibo support.

Below are those excerpts, courtesy of Serenes Forest:

Koei Tecmo is working on Fire Emblem: Three Houses, but it sounds like the game was mostly done by Intelligent Systems. Nintendo director Genki Yokota told VG247 that Intelligent Systems was primarily responsible for the main plot, the game system, ideas, and gameplay mechanics. Meanwhile, Koei Tecmo assisted on the programming side of things.

Intelligent Systems director Toshiyuki Kusakihara said that Three Houses “wouldn’t have been possible” without Koei Tecmo’s help. Yokota was more optimistic, but said that not having Koei Tecmo would have required much more development time.

Fire Emblem: Three Houses was shown off today at Japan Expo 2019 in Paris. Toshiyuki Kusakihara from Intelligent Systems and Genki Yokota from Nintendo were present and revealed a few new tidbits about the game (credit goes to Perfectly Nintendo for translating and transcribing):
