Nintendo finally revealed the next entry in the Fire Emblem franchise during this morning's E3 Direct, and they have since provided a round of screenshots and some new information on the story, characters, and mechanics of the game. In Fire Emblem: Three Houses, players will be entering the brand new world of Fódlan, which the Church of Seiros holds great influence over. The protagonist will meet with three main characters, Edelgard, Dimitri, and Claude, each of whom will play an important part in the game's story.

Additionally, Nintendo has confirmed what was hinted at in the trailer: that the protagonist will be able to freely move around certain areas of the world. Doing so will let you explore freely, gather information, and interact with other characters to build relationships with them.

What do you think of these new changes coming to Fire Emblem? Check out some screenshots below, and let us know your thoughts in the comments!
