Critic Reviews for Fire Emblem: Three Houses - Cindered Shadows

This expansion pass offers new unlockables that can go a long way, but its side story connects in an odd way.

Another good value expansion pass from Nintendo, that doesn't quite make up for the flaws of the parent game but does manage to emphasise its most positive qualities.

Cindered Shadows is a nice addition to the Three Houses experience, especially for folks who have played the game heavily and want more or just need some extra variety to add to their replays. The difficulty might frustrate more casual fans and it would have been nice to have more class options for your crew. If you’re looking for an excuse to travel back to Fodlan, however, Cindered Shadows just might be your ticket.

While such side a story doesn't reveal crucial elements from Fire Emblem : Three Houses, this new underground location, the colorful additionnal characters and their radically transverse skills somehow deepen the adventure as a whole.

Cindered Shadows confirmed what I'd been thinking for a while now. I want the next Fire Emblem game to take place in Fodlan, either a prequel or a sequel. Three Houses' world has been expertly crafted and I'm just not ready to leave it. Not even close.

Cindered Shadows considerably ups the difficulty of the fights, and this is by far its distinguishing feature. Otherwise, it's just more of the same of one of the best games in the library of Nintendo Switch.

In this conclusion to Fire Emblem: Three Houses' Expansion Pass, you can expect great new characters and more interesting stories to explore, this time within the Abyss. Some maps can repeat and it's exceptionally difficult, but it's a worthy closing.

Still a fun experience, and the new options provided by having the Ashen Wolves in my class make me want to get back on the bike and finish the storylines I’ve yet to play myself.
