In the United States last month, Switch continued a pattern that we’ve been hearing about often as of late. According to the latest NPD report, the system was the best-selling hardware once again. Switch was the best-selling hardware platform of both May as well as year-to-date across both unit and dollar sales.

The next Fire Emblem: Three Houses character to be introduced on the game’s official Twitter account is Petra of the Black Eagles. She’s the granddaughter of the king of the Briggid Archipelago, a group of islands west of the main continent.

She’s unfamiliar with the language spoken in Fódlan, but she has been studying hard. She is voiced by Shizuka Ishigami.

Here’s a brief clip of Petra talking with Byleth, in which you can hear her unusual speech pattern:
