It looks like Fire Emblem fans are making their popular vote pretty obvious this year.
One of the new features in Fire Emblem: Three Houses is a menu which shows what units were deployed the most times by players around the world. If you happen to be logged in to Nintendo Switch Online this week, you’ll probably see this menu:
If you notice something peculiar about the list above – it’s because it ONLY contains the eight main students from the Black Eagles house, led by Edelgard! This seems to imply that most players have been choosing and sticking to that faction only. Meanwhile, no other units from the Blue Lions or Golden Deer are anywhere in sight on the same list.
There could be a variety of reasons for this. Perhaps fans just like Edelgard’s design the most, or feel that the Black Eagles’ units are the strongest. There are also some spoiler-ish reasons surrounding Edelgard that we probably shouldn’t disclose openly. Clearly, however, players have made their voices pretty clear: The Black Eagles rock!
What about YOU? Which house did you pick? If not the Black Eagles, what’s great about the Blue Lions or Golden Deer? Let us know in your comments below!
