Koei Tecmo

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.

Koei Tecmo has published the first trailer for Monster Rancher in celebration of TGS 2019. Get a look at the video below.

The latest weekly Famitsu out of Japan has confirmed that Koei Tecmo and Gust’ recently announced Fairy Tail title will feature a command-based battle system. 

Previously, details on gameplay had been a little slim. Players will be able to form a party from popular mages throughout long running the anime and manga series, then the command-based structure will be used for gameplay.

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.

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