Fire Emblem: Three Houses Will Have Romance, but Only After a Five-Year Time Skip

Also, there will be dual-audio options for the whole game.

Today's Nintendo Treehouse livestream covered a lot of new info about the upcoming Fire Emblem: Three Houses. Not only will the game be fully dubbed with dual-audio options, but there's also some romance in the game (as if there was any doubt). Though to avoid any weirdness, the romances will only happen after a five-year time skip.

A lot of the new features in Fire Emblem: Three Houses are social-based. As a teacher at a military academy, it's up to you to grow your students and make sure they go on to become the best soldiers they can be.

Which is why something like romance would be weird. Nintendo knew this too and decided to avoid any teacher-student romance by making romances available only after a five-year time skip. That's enough time for all your former students to graduate and no longer care about school. They've got wars to fight after all.

This is a smart move and for the best. Recent Fire Emblem games on the 3DS have put a much heavier emphasis on romance than previous games, but given the context and setting of Three Houses, social interactions will remain just that, social.

As for some other tidbits, Fire Emblem: Three Houses has been confirmed to be fully dubbed. What's more, fans will be able to choose between the Japanese and English audio for the characters. So, wherever you fall on the subs vs. dubs debate, Fire Emblem: Three Houses has you covered.
