Trailer: Meet the Blue Lions of Fire Emblem: Three Houses

Two weeks remain until Fire Emblem: Three Houses launches on Nintendo Switch. The series finally returns to consoles after a three-game stint on the 3DS, and with it came its own technical challenges. Sizing up as the biggest Fire Emblem entry yet, each campaign between the titular Houses will take time to complete. Nintendo is providing a deep dive into the Officers’ Academy Houses leading up to the game’s release, with this week’s preview looking into the Blue Lion House.

Headed by crown prince Dimitri Alexandre Blaiddyd, the Blue Lions are native to the northern Holy Kingdom of Faerghus. The preview below highlights some of the students you will meet during the Blue Lions campaign; Dimitri’s stalwart guardian Dedue, and his childhood friends Sylvain and Ingrid stand out in particular.

It will be interesting to see how Dimitri goes from amiable to “Kill every last one of them” after the five year jump. Witness his descent for yourself when Fire Emblem: Three Houses launches on July 26.

Will you be siding with the Blue Lions come launch day? Let us know in the comments! And, just in case you haven’t yet, be sure to check out last week’s look at the Black Eagles!
