Nintendo has a long list of widely popular IPs. From Mario to Kirby, the company has some very heavy hitters under its belt. But, there are also some titles in the company which are classics even though their sales don’t match the likes of Mario.
One such series is the Fire Emblem series which has been around since the 90s. It is one of Nintendo’s oldest IPs and has been very successful although a bit underrated. At present, Fire Emblem is releasing games with the Dynasty Warrior franchise called Fire Emblem Warriors.
First, one of these games launched in 2017, and the sequel, Three Houses, came out in 2019. Both of the titles were hugely successful with the second game becoming the highest selling game in the Fire Emblem. Seeing all this success, a sequel was obviously coming and it is called Three Hopes.
Recently, a new listing on the official Nintendo web store gives us some interesting info about the game. Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes apparently has a demo, according to a listing on the My Nintendo Web Store. Players can download the demo and try the game before buying it or pre-ordering as it is yet to release. Seeing the demo on the website already is a nice surprise.
In the grand scheme of things, it may also hint at how Nintendo is doing a new Nintendo Direct. There have been contradictory rumors about the Nintendo Direct this year. Some have said that the event won’t take place while others tell players to not lose hope.
A demo for the game being available does entail some announcement or a deeper walkthrough. Nintendo Direct is the best place to do such a thing for Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes. Also, seeing Nintendo release more demos is also a nice thing to see.
Demos are very helpful in allowing players to judge if they want to pre-order a game or wait till it goes on sale. For example, the demo for Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity got positive feedback from players as it allowed them to test the game.
Whether they like it or not is up to them, but making a demo available is great fan service. So, the Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes demo will allow players to judge the game before buying. Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes launches on June 24, 2022, on the Nintendo Switch and we are excited to try this one out.
