The voices of Fire Emblem: Three Houses’ leaders want you on their side

So, Fire Emblem: Three Houses finally comes out in two short days. Of course, you’re already feeling overwhelmed; the game features several hours’ worth of content for one of possible three routes alone! With the stakes rising higher than ever, you still might not know who to ride with for the long haul. Which of the three noble houses at the Garreg Mach Monastery’s Officers Academy will you side with before all hell breaks loose?

As Byleth, will you take up arms with the Adrestian Empire’s Black Eagles? Perhaps you are weighing on whether or not to join the Blue Lions from the Holy Kingdom of Faerghus? Or has the Leicester Alliance’s Golden Deer caught your eye? If you’re still feeling indecisive, then you’re in luck! The voices behind the house leaders are calling fans online to join their side by swaying them with good old fashioned war propaganda.

Decisions, decisions…

First up is Joe Zieja, who voices Claude von Riegan of the Golden Deer; he kicked off this whole thing by throwing together a “Three Reasons to pick Golden Deer” video. I must say, Joe certainly lists off some very compelling points as to why you should side with this young buck come launch day:

Incidentally, Joe also goes by the handle XPRTNovice on OverClocked Remix! He collaborated with Flexstyle on the Super Mario 3D World remix “Caravan Bowser,” which you can hear in the above video.

Joe’s rallying call certainly did not go unheard by his co-stars. Chris Hackney, also known as the voice behind the Blue Deer’s Dimitri Alexandre Blaiddyd, was quick to point out his house’s strengths on Twitter.


Last but certainly not least comes Tara Platt, the woman behind Edelgard von Hresvelg of the Black Eagles. While Claude and Dimitri’s voices boasted extensively about what makes their respective houses the best one, fans approached Edelgard’s for her take on the subject. Far more humble than her rivals, Tara’s responses were brief but appropriately poignant, my personal favorite of the bunch being:

…okay, even after hearing all these remarkable points from the three leaders themselves, I still can’t decide which house I want to side with. Honestly, can you really blame me? There’s a lot of pressure here!

That said, we’d like to hear from you! Which of the titular three houses will you lead into battle once Fire Emblem: Three Houses launches on Nintendo Switch this Friday? Share your thoughts with us in the comments below!
