In Fire Emblem: Three Houses, you can choose between two difficulty settings and two styles of play before the beginning of the story. As such, there are up to four game mode combinations for players to choose from, allowing them to really personalize their experience according to their preferences.
The standard difficulty setting. Enemies will be easy early in the game but will get tougher as the story progresses.
The difficulty setting for those who want a challenge. Enemies will have higher levels than most of your units, but they will give more EXP if you defeat them. There is another mode found in other Fire Emblem games called Lunatic, but it is currently unknown if Three Houses will also have it.
Styles of Play
The traditional playstyle found in early Fire Emblem titles. Units whose HP drops to zero will no longer be playable, which will make them permanently deceased for the rest of the story.
A more forgiving mode which allows units with 0 HP to recover and participate in the next mission.
In addition to the difficulty settings and style of play, players can also access the extras option. By pressing extras, you’ll be able to access four new options of music library, movie gallery, voiceover language, and wipe data.
The music library allows the player to listen to the game’s music after hearing it in the game.
The movie gallery gives the player a chance to rewatch video cutscenes that they have seen in the story.
The player can also switch the voiceover language used in the game whenever they like.
Lastly, wipe data allows the player to clear their save data.
Aside from these game modes, players will also need to choose which house they want to belong to. Details about the three houses can be seen by clicking the coat of arms or links below.
