Being both a fan of the Warriors series (Musou) and a fan of Fire Emblem myself, I was extremely excited to see these two franchises combine, but the first part was not so satisfying that made me a bit hesitant to return to Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes fortunately everything was done very well.
The Warriors (Musou) series is now no longer confined to the two names Dynasty (Three Kingdoms) and Samurai as in the past, but Koei Tecmo has been very active in creating many different crossovers from: All Stars ( where the company’s famous characters participate in a game), One Piece, Gundam, Orochi, etc. The company even proceeded to make two Warriors games exclusive for Switch, Hyrule and Fire Emblem. Although all of the above games have the basic gameplay of hack and slash, in each game Koei adds many different elements to not get bored, but that does not always create a special success in the version. The first Fire Emblem Warriors has many limitations that make gamers uncomfortable. This is also one of the rare times when Koei is willing to absorb the reactions of gamers, so when they made this version of Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes in terms of the name, it was called a sequel to the game released in 2017, but the game went away. more in the direction of Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity. Many of you will feel worried when you have never played the Warriors version before and Three Houses will not be able to follow the plot or will be spoiled about these two games. But you can rest assured that Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes is not related to the first version and will have the plot turn to a parallel branch with Three Houses, so you can comfortably enjoy both while still ensuring the attraction. of the plot.
Many years have passed since Game4V completed Three Houses, but when entering the first scenes of Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes, a lot of memories rushed back because of the graphics, the plot guide is still the same as the brother. In the past, this familiarity is also due to the fact that the characters are fully voiced (they are done very well, showing the spirit of each character), the game also has more dialogue for us to enjoy. familiar voices can be heard. The background music and battle music of this part mixes many new and old music and sound effects, all of which perform very well their roles as both a highlight for important scenes and a thing that makes You feel the excitement of joining the battles. The plot in the game this time we will no longer play the role of Byleth, even worse than the respected teacher who became cold and cruel, causing Shez (MC this time) to seek help from the giants. clan for revenge. In terms of graphics, the game does not really impress me much compared to the common ground because recently Game4V has had the opportunity to experience many more beautiful games on other systems, but if only on Switch. The game has pretty good graphics. This is not only because the game on the switch is not graphically focused, but also because the game has to reduce things to make room for the graphics effects and the large number of soldiers that will appear on your screen. Thanks to that careful calculation effort, 99% of the time you play will be very smooth, and the remaining 1%? Well, sometimes the game lags even when experiencing the game on Switch Oled, but because the frequency is very low regardless of the time, the number of characters appearing, these problems do not affect the experience too much. mine.
If in the usual Warriors games, things are only really interesting when you join the remaining battles are just dry Menu screens. But with Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes, it’s different, you will be moving in your garrison area (quite like the Empire parts). At this point, you can exchange with the character you have just obtained, buy, upgrade weapons and even gifts, even receive many side quests to earn more income or to increase intimacy with members of the team. army. Having to move in a map that is too large to do errands is a double-edged sword because they easily make players feel bored, but in return, the game’s rewards are extremely valuable such as magic, new upgrades. for your favorite characters so don’t be lazy but try to do them all. The Support system is also back, but has been upgraded many times, say Support, but this is actually a close-knit system between characters that we often see in recent Fire Emblem versions. Maybe not all characters have deep cutscenes and also lack the wedding scene to create the next generation. But if you invest long enough, you will get back unique items, even upgrades for characters that normally can’t be found anywhere. That’s when you’re in the barracks, what about when you’re out in action? Your legions will be classified according to equipment such as swords, knights, mages, mages, etc. They will have strengths and weaknesses, similar to those in traditional Fire Emblem games. Your job to use them to the best effect or simply to level up your character really hard to smash all the enemies before they can react. We see the return of Awakening Mode and Warrior Specials that make the battle scenes in the game much more epic. However, it’s easy to get bored with just chopping and slashing all day, so to enjoy this game it’s better to earn an extra coin.
Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes may not have reached the point of being a must-have on the Switch system, but if you are a fan of either of the above series, or simply want to find a simple game for entertainment. then this would make a very good choice.
