Some fans of Fire Emblem: Three Houses recently encountered problems starting up the turn-based strategy title thanks to a bug, but said bug was thankfully squashed with the most recent Nintendo Switch hardware update.
Over the past few days, A handful of Three Houses owners who purchased the expansion pack discovered an error message that closes the application whenever they try to start up the game. The problem was quickly linked to the expansion pass DLC, and thankfully re-downloading it appeared to fix the issue. But even that quick fix shouldn't be necessary anymore thanks to today's Switch 9.0.0 system update.
The Fire Emblem: Three Houses expansion pass contains content that'll roll out between now and April 30, 2020, including a new outfit for Byleth, auxiliary maps, more quests, an additional side story, and more. The pass costs $24.99 USD, which is a decent price, but vanilla Three Houses already contains something like two hundred hours of content if you travel down all the paths the game offers. New outfits are nice, though. Everyone likes to dress up.
We are aware that some users who recently purchased the Expansion Pass for Fire Emblem: Three Houses are unable to start the game. A system update will be available later today to fix this. We apologize for the inconvenience.— Nintendo of America (@NintendoAmerica) September 9, 2019
Outside of the Three Houses bug fix, the Switch 9.0.0 system update also brings us an option for "online play invites," i.e. the ability to (finally) invite people on your Friends list to play games with you. This will no doubt be welcome when Overwatch comes to the Switch on October 15. A few smaller knick-knacks arrived with the update as well, including an alarm option. If you love your Switch so much that you take it to bed with you, you might be in luck here.
