Fire Emblem: Three Houses – Cindered Shadows DLC Takes About 8 to 10 Hours on Normal

Fire Emblem: Three Houses - Cindered Shadows DLC

Fire Emblem: Three Houses’ got a big feature in the latest issue of Famitsu with new tidbits of info from the devs on the Cindered Shadows DLC. [Thanks, Ryokutya2089.]

On Fire Emblem: Three Houses – Cindered Shadows

  • “Adjustments for Maddening Mode were very difficult. In the end, the timing worked out in our favor because it released around the time people beat the game.”
  • Toshiyuki Kusakihara, Director: “The reason why there isn’t a golden route is that that would make the route seen as the right one. We never intended on adding it from the very beginning.”
  • Genki Yokota, Director: “I love the golden routes, but Kusakihara had very passionate thoughts about it. There was also the feeling about having already done the same with Fire Emblem Fates.”

On Side Stories

  • “The four new characters each have their own grown-up forms for Part 2, so I hope you recruit them to your party in the main game, too.”
  • “There’s a pretty tough side story episode which unlocks additional elements upon clearing for the main game. Please look forward to it.”
  • “As for gameplay volume, it’s about eight to ten hours on Normal. I think it’s pretty tough, so I don’t think you’ll be able to plow through it with ease.”

On the Next Update

  • “A free update will make it possible to have tea time with Rhea.”
  • “Dancer clothes will be added for the protagonist. While they can’t change into the Dancer unit, they can switch to the appearance of one.”
  • “You can change costumes on the menu during Free Day. You’ll also get to change everyone’s costume at the same time.”
  • “Only Anna will get a change of appearance as a Trickster.”
