Nintendo released more information on how Shez will play in Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes, including their unique class. The player avatar character will use twin blades and specialize in fast moves. Like with Byleth in the original game, you will be able to choose whether you wish to play as a male or female Shez.
The Shez unique class is the Flugel, which seems to act similar to a Thief class. They wield two blades at the same time, and can move quickly through the battlefield. Like previous Fire Emblem protagonists before them, Shez has other hidden powers that the Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes Twitter page will reveal at a later date.

Tasuku Hatanaka will portray male Shez. Hatanaka previously voiced Yuma in Yu-Gi-Oh Zexal, Gorou in Genshin Impact, and Reki in SK8 the Infinity. Miyu Tomita will provide the voice for female Shez. Previous roles from Tomita include Riko from Made in Abyss, Ebisu in Dorohedoro, and Kafka in Arknights.
While characters from the previous game will appear with new visuals in Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes, it is unknown what role Byleth will play. Byleth does provide the main motivator for Shez, as Shez once lost to the Ashen Demon (Byleth’s nickname) and trained hard in order to get revenge.
Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes will launch on Nintendo Switch on June 24, 2022.
