Fire Emblem: Three Houses is easily one of the most-anticipated Nintendo Switch exclusives of 2019. It’s the first Fire Emblem game to release on a home console in over 10 years and it has a lot to live up to. The Fire Emblem series is known for its challenging gameplay and lengthy stories. It seems that this installment will be no different.
The news of the game’s length comes from the game’s director Toshiyuki Kasukihara who recently spoke to French site, JeuxVideo. When he was asked about the length of the game, he commented, “To end the game with just one of the three houses, it took me 80 hours. I did not cut the vocals or cut-scenes, of course. So, if you want to do the three paths, it can take you more than 200 hours.” This news is much welcomed by fans who can’t get enough of Fire Emblem.
Fire Emblem: Three Houses tells the story of a professor who leads a group of students in the region of Fόdlan. The region of Fόdlan was divided by war but is currently in a period of peace due to the Church of Seiros.
