In today's E3 Direct presentation, Nintendo has finally revealed Fire Emblem: Three Houses for Nintendo Switch, which is set to launch in Spring 2019.
The debut trailer shows our first look at a console Fire Emblem title in ten years, and we see quite a few dramatic improvements to the game's visuals and systems. Not only does the footage show the SRPG combat we expect to see with this franchise, but also the addition of troop formation and a 3D explorable castle town. The player can also build relationships with your army units, and influence their skills.

Find the trailer, fact sheet, and screenshots below.

Looks good. I've never played a Fire Emblem but might get to it next after I'm done with Ocarina of Time. Wasn't sure if it was worth playing a really old one or just going with Awakening and Fates.

Awakening is a good jump off point. The old ones to me feel antiquated now.

Finished Fire Emblem 3 Houses. The play-through took me 60+ Hours :crazy:

It is by far the BEST fire Emblem game I have played and one of the best games I have played this year. Intelligent Systems really hit it out of the ballpark with this. With that said, I don't know if I've got another play-through in me. I finished going down the Golden Deer path and would have to replay the game again 2 more time to do the other 2 paths. The story was intriguing and the difficulty was just right for me.

The only down side was the obvious with it being a Switch game is the graphics. The art style hides alot of the deficiencies but there are far to many jaggies in this game. Its almost like the applied zero anti-aliasing to the game, it's that obvious. It has me wondering how good this game could have looked on the X1, PS4 or PC but alot of Nintendo games leave me with that question. I would LOVE to see this game emulated on the PC with some anti-aliasing and higher than 1080p resolution.

Overall the game is worth of the praise it received during its release in the summer. And I would love to play it again. Its just with how long the campaign is and the way my backlog is set up, I finish 1 game only to add 2 more to the backlog.
