Fire Emblem: Three Houses Patch Replaces Former Voice Actor of Male Byleth

Zach Aguilar is taking on Byleth duties now.

After a series of controversies and a swap-out in the mobile Fire Emblem game, the voice actor for the male version of Fire Emblem: Three Houses protagonist Byleth has finally been patched.

A recent update to Three Houses, which added a number of new cosmetics and auxiliary battles, also finally swapped out previous Byleth voice actor Chris Niosi with Zach Aguilar, who took over voice-acting duties for Male Byleth already in Fire Emblem Heroes.

The version 1.0.2 notes list "implemented new English voice for Byleth (male)" as one of the updated changes to Three Houses. Niosi was confirmed to be patched out in July, after a number of controversies rose up around the voice actor. Zach Aguilar confirmed his introduction into the game with a celebratory tweet:

The Three Houses update also brought new costumes, Maddening difficulty, and several other features to the newest Fire Emblem title. Fire Emblem: Three Houses has been a major success for the strategy series already, setting several sales records. More DLC content has been found by dataminers and hackers, hinting towards the possibility of certain characters becoming playable.
