Fire Emblem: Three Houses Is Being Demade To Look More Like Older Games

Know what I loved about Three Houses? Almost everything! Know what I didn’t love? A lot of the game’s 3D visuals, from the monastery to the battle mode, looked like arse. Something this ambitious mod project is looking to fix.

FE: Three Houses GBA Demake is an attempt to entirely remake the game with retro pixel art, more in keeping with earlier games in the series. You can see it in action in this progress update below, which includes everything from wandering around Garreg Mach to the classroom to combat scenes:

If you were wondering how a fan project would be able to include all three branching storylines, the answer is that they’re not. To keep things manageable, only the Blue Lions arc will be featured, which as a Golden Deer upsets me, but I guess for practicality purposes I’ll just have to learn to accept it.

For anyone wondering about the future prospects of a project like this, the fans working on it are doing so behind closed doors, so there’s nothing playable or public for Nintendo to shut down until they’re done.

  • How can a fan project include all three branching paths? I dunno, people I know manage and are doing something similar…

    “This hack gives you the choice between 3 storylines: one for each house. Along with different chapters depending on the route you choose, this hack tries to immerse you by giving each house its own identity doing things such as changing map sprite color depending on the unit’s faction and the route, and changing the menu style depending on which route you chose.”

  • If you were wondering how a fan project would be able to include all three branching storylines, the answer is that they’re not.I’m wondering why this is even a question, it’s not like being a fan project has anything to do with whether they can or can’t do it, just whether they will or won’t. Besides, FE: Fates did it. It’s not a fan project, but it’s exactly the same thing, three stories branching from a central point, with pixel art.

    Also on the topic of paths…There’s actually four, five if you count the upcoming DLC
