Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes (24th June)

Recommended Posts

I finally was able to try the demo today. I definitely enjoyed a lot of what I played. Some stray thoughts:

  • The plot goes haywire immediately after Kostas, that's wild. So, if the Chapter 1 bandit dies early, everything changes? Love it.
  • If Byleth never showed up, Jeritza would be the third professor... Pfffffft!
  • This might be the lack of Musou experience talking, but I'm finding Normal Mode far too easy so far.
  • I got an ASS ranking right on the 2nd Mission. Damn. Don't think I can repeat that one, either.
  • I love Holst :heart: He's all I wanted out of the character
  • Shahid merely existing and name-dropping Khalid made me so giddy, you have no idea.
  • Shamir joins the Deer :bouncy: All we're missing is Cyril
  • Claude's wyvern can breathe fire. It may just be a reference to his exclusive Battalion Art, but... are all wyverns in FE actually capable of this?
  • Favourite characters to use so far are Shez, Claude, Leonie, Lorenz, and Shamir. Ignatz and Raphael have plenty of potential, but I haven't fully clicked with them yet
  • They just gave us a kickass remix of Apex of the World right at the end of the Prologue, huh?

I wasn't fully planning on buying this, but I think I'm on board now.

OK, yeah. I never would've guessed that was him! That dude has amazing range, and between Monster Hunter Rise and now, this. It's great that he's getting some proper gigs!

Hell yeah! On top of everything else about Holst, it's ProZD voicing him? Truly amazing. He had voiced Darros the Pirate in FE Heroes before, but that was a minor character. Really happy that he got a more prominent role in the series.

Before this, the most important role I knew he did was Hwang from Soul Calibur VI. ProZD is definitely leaving his mark.

I would be absolutely astonished if there wasn't a way to redo all missions. Especially since this uses a ranking system, with rewards tied to S ones, at that.

As for the difficulty, well. I can only speak from experience with the first game, so while it may be relatively easy to clear missions, getting the S ranks is what will provide the difficulty as you progress. There were plenty of times I went in with a strategy, only for some sudden event to change things. I would then use that foreknowledge to tweak my plan if I didn't quite S it the first time.

It's not just button mashing, it's where you button mash, and how efficiently you do so, while also telling the AI controlled characters where to go through the pause menu, and maintaining a balanced army, so you're ready for any formation you might see in the future.

I would buy this next week, but MH Rise is getting that DLC then, and that's gotta take priority, unfortunately. Will have to wait until I get more money after that.

You unlock the ability to replay missions after beating the mission where the demo ends.

Did anybody else purchase the game, or just me?

Swap Shamir and Raphael and my opinion remains the same. Shamir's style becomes incredibly hard to use in tougher encounters (because whenever you gain control of a character, every enemy nearby bum-rushes that character), so she's been a struggle. Raphael already clicked though, and I'm having a blast. It helps that he's the most mobile foot character, surprisingly enough.

Ignatz's getting there, still haven't figured out exactly which attacks are meant to splash paint. Lysithea also feels a bit messy and unfocused (the way her attacks spread so much), but in her case I think that's the point.

I've also been figuring out Hilda and Marianne. They're excellent as adjutant/support attackers, but I'm starting to see what they can do as point characters as well.

I wish. There's too many things coming out in the next month, and I can't afford it all. It was basically between this and Mon Hun Rise's DLC, and well, one of them is more focused around online play, and I routinely play with Mokong on it, so my choice was basically made.

This wouldn't be much of a problem, if it wasn't for Xenoblade coming out soon as well, so I'm gonna have to make another choice then.

I'm kinda miffed that Splatoon 3 swapped dates with it now.
