As we are drawing closer and closer to the July 26th Fire Emblem: Three Houses release date, we are continuously getting new leaks and rumors about the game. Now, it seems like the street date for Fire Emblem: Three Houses in China has been broken bringing spoilers and leaks about the game.
Fire Emblem: Three Houses is the fifteenth game in the Fire Emblem series. Three Houses is also the second game in the series to come out for home consoles since Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn (2007). There is a very distinct fan base behind the Fire Emblem games. Even though the fan base is considerably small compared to AAA games, Fire Emblem: Three Houses is the 4th best-selling game on the eShop and it isn’t even out yet.
The Fire Emblem: Three Houses 4Chan leak was first reported by a journalist from Spiel Times on Twitter. From there, it started gaining traction for the next couple of days.
The leak in question is regarding Fire Emblem: Three Houses’ street date in China along with major spoilers for the game. Apparently, several people in China have managed to get their hands on Fire Emblem: Three Houses before the release date.
Of course, we are not going to be diving into the spoilers, but we are going to be discussing how all of this happened. As of right now, information is very scarce regarding the sources of said leaks. But on the Fire Emblem: Three Houses board on 4Chan, people are posting a lot of spoilers regarding the game’s plot.
