It’s an incredibly busy week for Switch with the release of titles such as Fall Guys, Roller Champions and Sonic Origins. In addition to all these games, we also have the first-person title Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes.
This is another spectacular Musou game by the team at Omega Force that sees you (the player) take control of the brand new character Shez, as they prepare to meet the Three Houses protagonist Byleth. From here you team up with Edelgard, Dimitri and Claude and are invited to embark on a whole new adventure.
In our own review, we noticed how the game has improved from its 2017 predecessor in several ways, and also included solid performance and an action-packed campaign – giving it nine out of ten stars.
And here’s a summary of what other outlets have said about the game so far. GamesRadar + loved it (mostly) and gave it 3.5 out of 5:
“Four Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes run on a great hybrid combat system while barely slowing down for their beloved characters.”
Vooks.net praised the game for its flawless fusion of gameplay and strategy – giving it 4.5 out of 5:
“Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes” is perhaps the best Warriors game to date. It’s a completely flawless mix of fast-paced hack-and-slash gameplay with methodical, considered strategizing, with a recurring cast that is as vibrant as any “With a cast as large as it is, it’s not surprising that many characters feel alike in combat, but it’s easy to overlook how amazing every other aspect of it is.”
Nintendo Insider rated the game 9 out of 10, noting that it was an “exceptional standout” among the many Warriors games on Switch:

Comicbook.com said it was “closer to perfection than anyone has the right to be”, with a rating of 4.5 out of 5:
“Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes have enough of the franchise’s DNA to satisfy. And in some ways, zooming across a battlefield while triggering abilities like Assassinate or Nosferatu seems more in line with the chaotic, war-torn battlefields of Fodlan than it was before. “
And Destructroid was also impressed with the latest Warriors contribution, giving a 9 out of 10 score:
“While the core Warriors the gameplay is probably not going to win over people who have already tried to get into it, those of you who likes it should have a lot of fun with Three hopes. “
