Fire Emblem: Three Houses was just previewed on Nintendo Treehouse, and – with added information from other previews that occur beforehand – we have some extremely noteworthy new tidbits about some details fans have been wondering about, mostly in regards to romantic options
According to the Treehouse livestream, you can pursue romances with characters only after the five-year timepiece, thus taking a bit (if not all) of the moral tension out of a potential student-teacher relationship. In addition, per GameSpot, child units will not be returned, meaning that there will be alternative pocket dimensions or time travel to make your army's babies fighting fit.
There are some other details that stick out. The weapon triangle is no more, making it the first (non-remake) game in the series to omit it since its introduction in FE4. Dismounting from Mystery of the Emblem and Thracia 776 seems to have made a return. We also caught a great deal of footage from the school life / social management part of the game, which has (rightly) drawn a lot of comparisons to Persona.
