[Spoilers] Fire Emblem: Three Houses rumors surrounding story, characters, mechanics, and more

I love almost literally everything about this, so I’m worried it’s too good to be true. Especially Claude getting a Wyvern and being queer!

I just really hope any romance with students happens after the 5 year time skip, where you’d no longer be teacher and student.
It would be an interesting thing to make supports more inline with the times yeah

Like only be able to do only a part of the supports before and after the timeskip. So you need to invest early maybe

That way post timeskip supports will involve relevant events and how they are dealing with things after those 5 years

That all sounds good to me - simple maps is kind of a downer but an actual compelling story can smooth over a lot of those issues for me.

And the game not being 100% school, going off into some darker stuff, with a lot of different campaigns... I really, really dig that. Fingers crossed this isn't just a wishlist!

Only flag for me is more kid stuff coming out. Unless there's a real ~20 year timeskip, that's not a well I really want to return to. At least improve on the insultingly low-effort handwaving in Fates.

Can someone confirm to me if Claud is bi?

Golden Deers stay winning!

With how drastic the time skip seems in terms of elapsed time and tonal changes, I think it’d be inevitable. That’s probably why we haven’t seen any traditional supports at the academy.

Clair - Gray support is sexist because it has some "neurotic women, amirite fellow men" vibes. Celica is a super stupid character too.
It was more that pretty much everybody captured was a damsel in distress. Alot of that was in the original game (and they do kinda subvert it a bit with Mathilda), but they also added shots like Fernand and Mathilda in the keep for no reason at all.

The supposed leaker says he hasn't heard anything about kids.

The issue of the crests makes that kind of weird to me though. The three house leaders only have minor crests based on the recent Famitsu article, which seems kind of odd if there isn't a second generation where you can mix and match to get major crests.

I always expected it as student-teacher relationships have always been popular thing in shoujo stories, and a game targeting more towards women I see no reason why they would distance themselves from it.
I mean, there is the fact that it's creepy.

That's a reason to distance themselves from it.

So long as there's ways around it, I'll just do my level best to ignore it, I guess.

So it's like Fates in the sense that you've essentially got three storylines to pursue, with completely different events happening.
If that's true, I don't see those routes having around 25-30 chapters each. I don't remember how many maps Fates' routes had, but I can't expect something similar for 60 bucks, even if they're not putting as much effort in the maps as in those games.

Part of this sounds great, but I'm going to stay skeptical.

Hopefully the game lets me recruit a lot of the blue lions units, no way I'll be playing with stale vanillatri over Edelgard. Like I said in the other thread, Claude is pretty much the only unit in his house who looks good, everybody else ranges from ok to trash.

New? Do I need to start a list here or...?

I mean Fire Emblem Heroes just had a Children's Day event where you could summon several of the child soldiers from the series at an increased chance. Then they had them fight a tournament where Nino barely defeated Tiki in the finals.
You're absolutely right

NEW FE FEATURE: INFANT SOLDIERS

Yeah, I can't think of any fighters younger than toddlers in the series, so you got it there. Though dragon toddlers are not exactly helpless, Fae really shouldn't be fighting a war.
it's actually very well-designed to make it so that Fae avoids fighting
because her divinestone only has 30 uses and if you use them all up, you literally cannot ever get a new one
