Fire Emblem: Three Houses gets a brand new update that introduces maid/butler costumes, new recruitable characters, and feeding animals.
Nintendo America revealed the patch notes for the most recent Fire Emblem: Three Houses update, Version 1.1.0. Among all the quality of life changes, the biggest ones are the butler and maid costumes for each of the characters, Shopkeeper Anna being recruitable for those who purchased the expansion pass, the addition of a recruitable Jeriza in Edelgard’s Red Flower route, and the free update which upgrades the game with 25 save slots.
There are also some additional quests in Fire Emblem: Three Houses that include new activities such as the sauna, feeding cats and dogs, and recruiting new Battalions. You can check out the screenshots below provided by Nintendo Japan, which show off some of the changes:
As of the end of October, Fire Emblem: Three Houses has sold over 2.29 million copies and is on track to becoming the best selling in the franchise. There’s a new accolades trailer that tells you why it’s a must play game (besides tea parties of course). And the UK clearly agree, as it reached the top of the charts for the second straight week. In a recent interview from Famitsu, it was revealed that the majority of Fire Emblem: Three Houses‘ development team came from Koei Tecmo.
Nintendo released new trailers and a beautiful piece of official artwork to celebrate the launch. The game also has an Expansion Pass and Amiibo and online features. The game will receive a free update later on which will add Lunatic Mode. Check out our glowing review of Fire Emblem: Three Houses game here. And if it makes you interested, you can order the standard version here and the limited edition set here.
And for a little fun, check out this hack that lets you host a Tea Party with Death Knight, Sothis, Jeralt, or even yourself. Unfortunately Rhea wasn’t able to be included, despite the hacker’s best efforts.
