In Fire Emblem: Three Houses, there are three noble houses – The Black Eagles, The Blue Lions, and The Golden Deer.

These are part of the Officer’s Academy, which is an elite facility that trains students in the ways of weapons, magic, and special skills.

You play as a professor and will have to choose one of the three houses to lead their respective students in grid-based battles with life-or-death stakes.

With three paths to tread, that has understandably resulted in a question surrounding how long it will take to see the Nintendo Switch exclusive through to its conclusion. Well, we now have an answer.

In an interview with JeuxVideo at Japan Expo this week, game director Toshiyuki Kusakihara has shared that, without skipping dialogue or cutscenes, it took him 80 hours to beat the game with just one of the three houses.

Therefore, he expects it to take more than 200 hours for completionists that want to beat the game after siding with each of the three houses – experiencing their different scenarios.

Fire Emblem: Three Houses will release exclusively for Nintendo Switch worldwide on July 26th.
