Well, his description and art almost makes him a male version of the "innocent little sister"-character trope that has been a thing in almost all games. If he's going to be a healer, he would even fit the class that those "little sister" characters have most of the times.
That’s the 2nd merchant in Golden Deer, right? Does the Alliance do a lot of trade or something?
I think an alliance of multiple regions having a big focus on trade makes sense, if you're opposing an empire that has the support of the church and military might and a country made up by crusaders with equal military might and all.
They're the most commoner-heavy region. They're gonna have more merchants, since that's how you get commoners rich enough to send a kid to a super fancy military school.
It's mainly the guys that are the issue. Their sins are too great for me, not even Claude can save them. Raphael isn't as terrible as Ignace or Lorenz, but something about his face bugs me, and he might as well lose the shirt if it's that ill-fitting. All I'm saying is, if the houses go to war with each other I know which one I'm burning down first. I just hope I can save Claude.
The male students generally are worse; but even the female designs are more just blandly okay than particularly magnetic.It's mainly the guys that are the issue.

We dont deserve Ippei, I bet he would get a lot 9f hate for his less anime lookThe male students generally are worse; but even the female designs are more just blandly okay than particularly magnetic.
I'm keeping an open mind about other aspects of the game's format and design and generally am optimistic towards it; but the character art has consistently done either nothing or extremely little for me - I look at them and see this.
Hopefully, with the difference in backgrounds and social standings; they have decent interactions with each other and their places in the world; their offputting, avatar-creator like appearances might make it difficult to get attached to them as a first impression, but maybe the way you're placed to direct their growth and the presence of character-specific sidequest activities will allow you to feel more protective of them even if they do look like cursed dolls.
Maybe after the timeskip everyone will be drawn by Ippei.
Woah, damn. What's going on with the dude in the top right's eye?We have a more clear picture of the images that flashed by in the artbook, the top middle one in particular is pretty interesting if you've kept up with the leaks,I remember there being something about edelgard having buns in her hair post timeskip, and this woman in the middle looks pretty similar
It's bizarre for sure. Three Houses has gotten a grand total of 7 minutes of trailer time, with almost no other western marketing. None of which had any real story or combat details, let alone a hook. NoA has bothered to translate/post, what, two of the bios the JP Twitter has been putting out frequently? NoE has done more than them, although still little.I wonder if we'll actually get a proper NA website before or at least on Tuesday alongside the Direct. It's kind of crazy how all out and comprehensive the JP site is with regular updates while the west just has this beyond basic temp product page, not to mention the complete lack of promo/marketing stuff like the Twitter and bi-weekly Famitsu articles.
I really hope E3 is the kickoff for the West and they don't half ass it over here. This should be a huge step for the FE franchise to really get to that next level. I hope they don't mess it up.
I would agree, but that just makes it weirder that the twitter presence for this game is nearly nil.
My hope is they're going for a big bang approach. Concentrated fire between E3 and release. Pessimist in me thinks they're just not confident in the game, either it's overall quality after two delays or the setting resonating with western audiences.It's bizarre for sure.

You'd think 3H would get more marketing than even Fateswakening, but I feel like it's gotten less than SoV. Here's hoping they go for a saturation strategy from here on, and really hook people with a juicy trailer at E3.
Maybe, but I mean we haven't even gotten that much. They did what 4 or 5 of the character profiles JP has done and even then not the full posts with video, just portraits and a screenshot.
SoV would've had to have been under a million then, wouldn't it? At least for awhile anyway. Otherwise it should've been mentioned among the new 1 mil+ sellers in either a quarterly or yearly fiscal report. I suppose it could've been a slow burn to 1 mil, though. I think the reports are kinda limited in what they include. Like if it ended its first FY at 800k or something and then climbed up another 200k+ over the next year it still wouldn't make any lists.The FE brand name is as big as its ever been, thanks to FEH, and Awakening/Fates successfully selling 2mil+ copies. They never gave an official number of how well Echoes did, but i remember it being stated somewhere that they were satisfied with the sales, not to mention FE Warriors sold 1mil+. Unless FE3H just turns out to be a genuinely terrible game, it will benefit from releasing on a popular system and growing userbase that isn't the same with the 3DS/WiiU.
I'm sure they'll have a full blowout of information during E3 to build up the hype.
A lot of these designs are too modern. Like, can you imagine a person during that time having glasses?
eyeglasses have existed for centuries, since like the 1300s
