Fire Emblem: Three Houses is unrivaled in its scope and execution on Nintendo Switch to resoundingly deliver strategic perfection, whether at home or on the move. With a memorable cast of characters each with their own motivations – complemented with remarkable voice acting – it is the meticulous worldbuilding that elevates it to become one of the best games available on the portable home console.

The biggest Fire Emblem yet, the newest console entry delivers on tactical warfare as much as it does on story telling. With three different routes to go down, a large school to explore and so many characters to talk to Three Houses sets the new standard in the genre of strategic RPGs – and a high one it is.

Fire Emblem: Three Houses is the evolution the series needed, a tour de force that manages to gives a more accessible adventure without losing it’s soul. The combat is fantastic, strategic and unforgiven if you’re not prepared; but it’s the social part and expansiveness of it’s mechanics that keeps shining, even after 70 or 80 hours of gameplay. If you love the genre, this is a must buy.

Edelgard's Black Eagles is an engaging route that you should take if you want a road filled with intrigue, betrayal and action. Siding with The Adrestian Empire shines a whole new light on the events of the game, and at times you may even question your allegiance. At the end of the day, there can only be one ruler of Fódlan and Edelgard is the right choice… at least for your first playthrough.

While the narrative has similar beats, the wide cast of eccentric personalities more than makes up for it. The tactical battles of course are still as engaging as ever. If you have never ventured into turn-based strategy games, it doesn't get any better than Fire Emblem: Three Houses.

As it stands, we think series veterans will be able to find enjoyment in this game, but we find it difficult to recommend it to newcomers.
