Content Continues Below

Seemingly, the Wave 3 and 4 rounds of paid and free Expansion Pass DLC for Nintendo Switch game Fire Emblem: Three Houses have been revealed thanks to an early copy of a new guidebook set to release in Japan tomorrow.

The guide, which was published by video game magazine Famitsu, details both past and future DLC waves for Fire Emblem: Three Houses and includes information about new units, quests, weapons, a usable Sauna, and of course, the ability to pet dogs and cats at Garreg Mach Monastery.



The information was translated thanks to Fire Emblem fan site Serenes Forest; note that the below names and content are, of course, subject to change.
