I haven't been too impressed with three houses either. The art direction is bland and dated. I don't know why they couldn't design the art around the cutscenes. Animated, lively, dynamic, distinctive, ornamental. I almost think Octopath Traveler captured the feel of Fire Emblem more than three houses has. I don't mind the storyline, but bland on bland does not make something stellar and interesting. For me, there still is no hook to draw me into this title.
And while we are at it, the Yoshi demo felt far too easy. I miss the days of Yoshi's Island.
I'm glad we are getting more 3rd party support and Mario Maker and Animal Crossing are coming. Will be hard for those to not excite.
