Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes tells an alternate story in the Fire Emblem: Three Houses universe.


Nintendo has released a free demo of Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes, giving Switch owners a chance to sample the upcoming action game ahead of its launch next week.

The demo is available to download from the Nintendo eShop and lets you play up to chapter four in each of the game's three alternate routes. Moreover, any progress you make in the demo will carry over to the full game if you purchase it after it launches.

In addition to the demo, Nintendo has released a new trailer for Fire Emblem Warriors. This one showcases the members of the Ashen Wolves, the secret fourth house introduced in Fire Emblem: Three Houses' "Cindered Shadows" DLC expansion.

Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes launches for Switch on June 24. Players who have save data for Fire Emblem: Three Houses or the previous Fire Emblem Warriors game will receive some extra in-game gold and items as a bonus. You can also scan Fire Emblem Amiibo figures to receive additional items and weapons in the game.

Three Hopes is one of two big releases coming to Nintendo Switch this month. The following week, Capcom is launching Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak, a paid expansion that introduces a variety of new monsters, weapons, locales and other content to the game. It, likewise, has a free demo out now.
