I have been playing Fire Emblem Three Houses as often as I can over the past 2 weeks. I bought a Nintendo Switch recently, climbed Mount Fuji and enjoyed myself at a 2 day English Camp before diving into the game.
Fire Emblem History
The first Fire Emblem I played was “Fire Emblem” on the Game Boy Advance in 2003 (damn I’m old). It was such a unique game that combined tactical and RPG elements with awesome characters. Before that, I’d been a huge fan of the Advance Wars games so expected it to be just a reskin in a fantasy world. It was far more than that. I then played the sequel Sacred Stones and then Path of Radiance on the Gamecube. For one reason or another, I hadn’t played another game in the Fire Emblem series until now with Fire Emblem Three Houses which is the main reason why I bought a Nintendo Switch now.
Three Houses Experience so far
I am about 50 hours into my Fire Emblem Three Houses experience playing as The Golden Deer. I am reminded why Fire Emblem is such a great series, as Three Houses might be the best game in the series yet. The story so far is amazing, the huge cast of characters allows you to become invested if that’s your thing and the combat so far has been so much fun. I am already planning for 2nd, 3rd or even forth play-through but for now, my Team lead by Claude is already such a joy to play with. I am playing with the Japanese dub and English subtitles as I honestly don’t like some of the English voice acting. Also, the anime cut-scenes are sprinkled throughout the story that just makes the experience even better.
Have you been playing Fire Emblem Three Houses? I am considering doing a Let’s Play of my 2nd play-through. If you have been playing and enjoying Three Houses tweet me your thoughts @Jamaipanese on Twitter or leave a comment below.
