Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes Release Date, Trailer, And Gameplay - What We Know So Far

"Fire Emblem" fans were in for a treat during the Feb. 9 Nintendo Direct, as the publisher announced not only a new title in the franchise, but also the second collaboration project between the "Warriors" franchise and "Fire Emblem." Back in 2017, "Fire Emblem Warriors" introduced players to a brand new "Fire Emblem" experience, bringing iconic characters from across the series to meet in a new action-centric adventure. The original title released to positive reception with fans and critics praising the new elements "Fire Emblem" adds to the standard Musou formula.

"Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes" aims to recapture everything that made its predecessor great and expand even further — adding in the advancements achieved in the well-received "Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity." This time, "Fire Emblem Warriors" will focus on the band of characters from the quite lengthy "Fire Emblem: Three Houses" and players are even hoping the new title will offer a long-requested interpretation of "Fire Emblem: Three Houses" narrative. Here's what we know so far about the release date, trailer, and gameplay for "Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes."

When Will Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes Release?

Not only are fans lucky enough to know exactly when "Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes" will release, but it's also not too far into the future. Nintendo revealed that the upcoming action title will be available on June 24th of this year. With only four months to go, excited players won't have to wait long before they're able to get their hands on the game. All that said, the last couple years have produced countless delays across the game industry, so players should always be ready for release dates to change.

Fans have mostly reacted positively, with many expressing their excitement for another entry in the "Fire Emblem Warriors" franchise. One Twitter commenter, @Sage047, in response to Nintendo's announcement Tweet, said, "You could say I kind of wanted this for a while now." Many fans, like @ShadowMasterL, believe "Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes" will offer players the long-requested golden route (an alternate course of events for the main narrative) for "Fire Emblem: Three Houses. @ShadowMasterL said, "so beyond the new Characters the fact both Dimitri and Claude have their Relics but Edelgard doesn't have Amyr shows this is an alternate timeline since she gets Amyr from TWSITD and it seems she won't have it here." @chirpychaz7 added on to @ShadowMasterL's interpretation, commenting, "This probably means that they are doing this for a golden route in plans of making a three houses sequel right?"

Is There A Trailer For Fire Emblem Warriors:Three Hopes?

Nintendo had a reveal trailer to show off for "Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes" during the Feb. 9 Nintendo Direct. Clocking in at just over two minutes, the sneak-peak reintroduces some familiar faces and sets the tone for the narrative to come. 

The trailer opens up with scenes of war. Soldiers on the march, calvary by horseback and the clashing of swords underscored by a harmonious chorus. A voice speaks out, "The cycle of this world, I will not allow it to perish with you." A few familiar faces are shown before fans catch their first glimpse of the title's combat. Edelgard is shown taking on a sizable force of enemy soldiers with her battle axe, hacking and slashing before whipping up a gust of wind that encircles the foes in a cyclone. The focus then shifts to the Blue Lions' House leader, Dimitri, using his glaive on the battlefield. Before long, Claude also gets some time in the spotlight before the trailer goes into a whirlwind of gameplay and story snippets.

What Will Gameplay Be Like For Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes?

Thankfully, there isn't much mystery when it comes to the type of gameplay players will encounter once "Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes" is finally available. As a Musou game, any player familiar with the "Dynasty Warriors" games, or even one of the other Nintendo/Koei Tecmo collaborations, will feel right at home. Musou games place players in the shoes of powerful, iconic characters and drop them in stages filled with hordes of enemies. As with the "Hyrule Warriors" series and "Fire Emblem Warriors" before it, players will likely be completing objectives across a large stage or battlefield alongside their combat extravaganza. While details are scant on some of the specifics for "Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes," it's already clear that an assortment of new characters, locales, weapons, and abilities will be added at the very least, considering the title is set in the much-beloved world of "Fire Emblem: Three Houses."

Fans won't have too long to wait for "Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes," and if it's everything fans are hoping it will be, it may even provide the catalyst to set up a sequel for "Fire Emblem: Three Houses."
