Fire Emblem Three Houses Will Get a Lunatic Mode After Launch; New Details on Expansion Pass

Fire Emblem Three Houses Expansion Pass will include new characters. Lunatic Mode will be added via a free update.

This week’s Famitsu magazine includes a 40 pages feature on Fire Emblem Three Houses, as the game launches worldwide this Friday. The feature recaps everything Nintendo revealed prior Three Houses’ launch. The feature also includes a walkthrough for the early parts of the game. It’s the usual feature Famitsu does when a big game is about to release.

The feature also includes an interview with Fire Emblem Three Houses’ Director Toshiyuki Kusakihara and Series Director Genki Yokota.

In the interview, Genki Yokota shared more details on the content of the Expansion Pass:

Genki Yokota: “The Expansion Pass is only made of side-stories. It won’t contain story content happening after the main story. We’re also planning to add new characters with it. It’ll have a lot of content, so please look forward to it.”

This dispels the fears of players traumatized by Fire Emblem Fates and its third main story only available via paid DLC. Nintendo and Intelligent System aren’t doing this anymore. Fire Emblem Three Houses‘ main story is complete in the base game.

According to Yokota, Fire Emblem Three Houses will also get a Lunatic Mode:

Genki Yokota: “Besides the Expansion Pass, we are also planning to add Lunatic difficulty via a free update after launch. You will have to wait a bit for this update, but we hope experienced players will try it out.”

Fire Emblem Three Houses has high replayability, so an additional difficulty will be great.

Fire Emblem Three Houses got new English trailers recently, one for each house. The Black Eagles. The Blue Lions. The Golden Deer. A Japanese overview trailer was also released. You can also read details on the Amiibo and online features.

Fire Emblem Three Houses launches on July 26 exclusively on Nintendo Switch. You can get it on Amazon.
