I think it looks great, they could have played it safe but appear to be trying something new with this game. Trailer could have shown more gameplay, but overall I am excited.



Around the Network

I'm excited. I'm sure there will be some grand story that was completely omitted in the direct.

But been playing a bit of Harry Potter Hogwards Battle the card game and so the whole Fire Emblem Hogwarts seems neat. I feel you will really get to know the characters on a personal level before the game starts to get 'intense'

The training of characters looks cool and more thematic than just oh I'm going to drop this scroll on them and they went from a healer to a completely random class.

But you know there has to be some grand scheme, plot. You don't just have kids at school and them learning and doing assignments as a game. Also three houses means this game will immediately have 3 times replayability.

This trailer seemed very focused on the early parts of the game.I imagine something terrible will happen and you'll have to go on an epic quest and sort everything out with your students.

That's what I figure. I mean think of like Fire Emblem Awakening. That could have a direct solely focused on the children aspect and totally ignore that main plot, but when playing that game it is still very much a standard Fire Emblem game.

I'm confused what the game is even supposed to be about.

It's about high school.

I am going to give it a chance as a day 1. My expectations are tempered, but it looks interesting to me. I have zero hype for it, but still desire to play it. I have not played the other Fire Emblem games yet, so I really have nothing to compare it to.

Maybe I will do a review for the view of someone new to the franchise later on, it may surprise many of us.

If Mario or Zelda isn't in a game, then lower your expectations for it.

The Inklings disapprove



That trailer has only increased my worry for the game, not whether or not it'll at least be decent, but if it'll be a financial success. They're just not doing a good job presenting/marketing this game. First trailer was meh, you go dead silent on it for a 8 months, only to give us another mediocre trailer. We've still not gotten an explanation on the new gameplay mechanics, you know the most important thing. Further, they've not shown what the major conflicts or goal is. It's surely it's not just fighting bandits, so the game seems aimless and lacking motivation, and I can tell ya from personal experience that those ain't attractive traits.

Also, the Hogwarts angle seems like it's going to be padding/filler between missions. Instead of taking 5 minutes buying weapons and using seals, now we have to... watch our units eat lunch? I get it, they wanna flesh out the characters, but if the execution is anything less than superb it's gonna be a problem for me, essentially forcing me to play through content I don't care about before I can get to the reason I bought the game. Say what ya will about the pair-up/relationship system in Awakening/Fates, but it progressed by normal gameplay and actually added to the strategy by encouraging you keep specific units close to each other.

Don't get me wrong I'm still excited for the game, but that's still only because it's a Fire Emblem game, Three Houses itself has yet to excite. To not be completely negative I will say there are two notable positives in this trailer. The finally showed us characters in a character focused game, and it sounded like you could fully customize your army, making any unit whatever class you want them to be. Whenever they decide to elaborate more on that should get me quite excited as customization n team building is one of my favorite things about this series.



Will likely be my first fire emblem game since radiant dawn. this school and weeb stuff seems weird to me. I just wish they showed the battles as that's all I really care about. guess we'll see it when they do a fire emblem specific direct

In that case, wait for reviews and get ready for a potential shock. Awakening was an entirely different type of game compared to Radiant Dawn, it's possible that this one will be the same.

 

Radiant Dawn is still one of my favorite games ever, and Awakening still one of the games I regret buying the most...
