June has been big for Nintendo fans, with two major releases planned for the month. Earlier we had Mario Strikers: Battle League, which brought the fan-favorite sports game to a whole new level. This Friday marks the release date of Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes, a game that hopes to capitalize on the quality and scale of not just Fire Emblem: Three Houses, but Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity. Early review indications state that it’s managed to do that and more.
As you can see from the tweet above, the first reviews for Three Hopes have arrived and overall, reviewers seem impressed. This is a good indicator for fans, as Warriors titles as a whole aren’t usually praised unless they’re extremely good. One of the reasons why Age of Calamity was so praised was because of how it took the realm of Breath of the Wild and breathed a fresh and fun story into it while also remaining true to the story of the main title.
Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes aims to do the same thing, as the game is based in the world of Three Houses. The game features a very different protagonist in Shez, with the enemy being the protagonist of the original game, Byleth, and the goddess Sothis. Just as important, players will once again have three different paths that they can choose from, each showing a different side of the story while teaming up once again with the leaders of the three houses of Garreg Mach Monastery.
While we can’t say how good the game will do sales-wise, this does give fans hope.
