Fire Emblem: Three Houses E3 2019 trailer shows off battles and people yelling

The long-awaited Switch installment of Fire Emblem drops next month

There’s not much left in the way of news for Fire Emblem: Three Houses, given that the strategy game drops next month, but Nintendo did hand us a brand new trailer during its E3 2019 Nintendo Direct presentation.

The trailer features some of the familiar faces we’ve seen in previous stills and videos, including Eldegard, Dimitri, and Claude, the three main allies of the game. We also get a look at school life and some pretty intense battle sequences. We still have a few questions about some of the gameplay mechanics, specifically about whether we’ll see the return of the triangle weapons system, but for now we’ll just have to settle for pretty pictures.

Fire Emblem: Three Houses is scheduled to be released on July 26 for Nintendo Switch. If previous installments are any indication, we can expect to see a fair amount of post-release DLC in the year following release.
