    So it's coming out soon, and I could not find an existing thread, so here is one.

    It looks like they're doubling down on the "management" side of the game, which I find slightly annoying. I've never really cared for the waifu stuff in the newer games (it was extra creepy in fates), even though I realise that the series probably wouldn't survive without it. Apparently there's an option to skip it, though, which is nice.

    Anyway, it's Fire Emblem, day 1 purchase, yada yada. Is anyone else hype?

    There's a bit more detail about it here: https://www.usgamer.net/articles/fire-emblem-three-houses-drops-the-iconic-weapon-triangle-preview

    It sounds like a persona game tbh.

    See that sounds like a great addition to me, I love the persona games.

    Though I am less enthusiastic about the weapon triangle going

    That sounds like a massive change - the weapon triangle made battles logical and easy to read (like a game of chess). I hope removing it won't make the battles feel too random!

    @Hog-lumps they have added a new mechanic where you can teach units breaker attacks (such as axe breaker), which damage the weapons durability more which might be an interesting change.

    Yeah, it will probably be a positive change once we have it in hand - I will try and remain optimistic as I am sure they know what they are doing!

    I liked the management systems in Fates and I've no qualms at all about losing the weapon triangle, so this is good with me. I don't tend to buy many Switch games, but I've got a couple of long flights in early July, so may well pick this up to help me get through those.

    Yeah I'm playing through fates again at the moment and quite like the management aspect.

    I didn't care for it, but hey ho. It's not like it ruined the game or anything.

    Still more than happy to give the new things a try. Maybe I'll end up liking them!

    Apparently you can play it without the management stuff.

    Anyone spotted if theres a eshop pre-order option? Its been missing the last few weeks strangely

    I go away early hours of the 26th which is obviously ideal playing the switch for a week, not so much for a physical delivery :(
