Fire Emblem: Three Houses First Review Score Is Out
Fire Emblem: Three Houses is getting its first review out ahead of the game’s launch, which is set for July 26. It is the first brand new Fire Emblem that is releasing for the Nintendo Switch.
Japanese magazine Famitsu has shared the first review for Fire Emblem: Three Houses ahead of its launch. They have given the game a rating of 37 out of 40. This rating is based on the score given by four different reviewers. Each rates the game on a scale of 1 to 10 and the combined rating is usually the overall score.

While Fire Emblem: Three Houses previews were going up, there was no information provided on the review embargo for the game. We already know how long the game’s story will be, and it is close to 200 hours long for completing it with all three houses. There is also some information on what the expansion pass will contain for the game.
According to the previews, the press has until next week to write a review for the game so judging from the review embargo of previous Nintendo Switch games, this means the review embargo will possibly lift on July 25, 2019.
