More information on upcoming strategy RPG Fire Emblem: Three Houses has surfaced.
The statistics has come through Famitsu and an interview with co-administrators Toshiyuki Kusakihara and Genki Yokota at Japan Expo. You can discover beyond statistics on the game here, here, and throughout Niche Gamer.
Here’s all of the new information:
A new shape of boss appears in the sport known as “Demonic Beasts”. These beasts are so big they take in more than one squares (with the ones we’ve got seen to this point taking up a 2×2 region). Not only do they’ve some type of protection effect (indicated through yellow tiles that assumedly travel and rotate with the beast), however they have a couple of HP bars.
The protection impact can be broken with the aid of the use of weapons they are weak to, together with gambits and fight arts. When one among the protecting tiles is damaged, their protection lowers and they will no longer counter-assault next time they are attacked. When all the protection tiles are broken, they enter “Armor Break”- turning into not able to move and dropping rare gadgets.
However, the monster will slowly build up for a first-rate assault that may attack a couple of units right now with a harsh blow. This can also regenerate broken safety tiles. Suffice to say, your squad will ought to paintings collectively to take this kind of beast down. We have additionally noted from photos online that the beasts are armed with “Crest Stones”, and that positive attacks can appeal to the creatures interest and make it face who simply attacked it.
In the interview with Toshiyuki Kusakihara and Genki Yokota, they clarified the weapon triangle had not been removed, however it changed into just “much less seen” as Yokota explains:
“The weapon triangle machine hasn’t disappeared, it’s simply less seen. Will we see it again in destiny video games is difficult to mention since we’re running on issues and recreation mechanics first earlier than considering importing capabilities in it. What we wanted to do in Three Houses is to give player freedom in tutoring their students, so that the participant can provide their favorites students some thing they need in guns and abilties. It facilitates the participant become aware of with the crew they’re raising.”

This consists of Swordbreaker for lance users (which in beyond games had an advantage over sword-wielding devices).

This is a recurring potential for installed units in beyond Fire Emblem games), Axe Master (+five Attack whilst an axe is equipped).
