There were many exciting new announcements in the February Nintendo Direct, and those looking forward to more tales in the world of Fódlan will be pleased to hear that Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes pre-orders are now available. Knowing that Fire Emblem games have a tendency to go out of stock and become quite rare, you might want to order this as soon as possible if you’re a fan.
This will be the second time that Koei Tecmo has tried its hands at a Fire Emblem game, with the first being 2017’s Fire Emblem Warriors. We found it to be one of the most engaging musous stories we’ve seen, as you can read in our Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes review, while the previous Warriors title was more of a crossover event, designed simply to bring together existing characters in a story that officially took place in ‘another dimension’.
There’s a precedent for this too, because Koei Tecmo’s Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity (the sequel to Hyrule Warriors) had a story that tied closely to Breath of the Wild, while the original was a crossover story in a similar mould to the original Fire Emblem Warriors. Either way, we’re looking forward to seeing what Three Hopes finally being in everyone’s hands.
The Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes release date falls on June 24, 2022. Here’s everything we know about its pre-orders before then:
Standard Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes pre-orders
The standard release is available from multiple retailers. If you want to get your hands on the game on day one and aren’t worried about pre-order bonuses (none of which are in-game), then you can do so via the links below.
Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes Limited Edition
While a Limited Edition of Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes has been announced, so far it has only been made available to pre-order for customers in Japan, Europe and the UK. We don’t know when, or if, this will also be released in the US. The game was available to pre-order in the My Nintendo Store, but is currently out of stock, though that’s not to say that more won’t be made available. It contains all of the following:
- Artbook: containing beautiful artwork based on the characters and settings in the game.
- Tapestry map of Fódlan: a lovely collector’s item for fans of Three Houses.
- Set of five acrylic figurines: we don’t know all of them yet, but we do know Edelgard, Dimitri and Claude are included here.
- Character postcard set: multiple postcards of Fire Emblem characters, including Edelgard, Dimitri, Claude and several others (again, only those three are confirmed).
Catch up before you play Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes
As Three Hopes is going to have a strong connection to Three Houses, you might want to play that game before this one comes out – with a few months to go, you’ll have time to play through it before Three Hopes comes out. Likewise, you might want to give the first Fire Emblem Warriors a try, to give yourself an idea of what type of gameplay to expect.
