We could go on, but why not peep our video review for Three Houses right below? We delve into just how much there is to do while you build your army of veritable supersoldiers.
Fire Emblem Three Houses casts you as the enigmatic Byleth, the son or daughter of a renowned mercenary. Shortly into the game, you encounter three lords on the run from a pack of bandits thanks to a training exercise gone wrong. Using your tactics and swordsmanship, you make an inadvertently strong case for your skills, and are soon employed at the massive Garreg Mach Monastery.
