Fire Emblem: Three Houses Expansion Pass Wave 3 goes live, adds interactive animals, Sauna, more | Nintendo Wire

The third wave of Fire Emblem: Three Houses DLC is now available to download, adding a sauna, new outfits, a recruitable Anna, and, yes, the ability to interact with monastery animals like cats and dogs.

 

 

Anna can be recruited after completing a new quest, while the ability to interact with cats and dogs must be earned by completing a quest, as well.

Previously, we reported dogs would be able to be pet in this update; however, this appears to have been a misinterpretation of a translation, as dogs and cats can only be given gifts instead. We apologize for any confusion caused by this error.

Maid and butler battalions have also been added in addition to Servants Attire, Summer Wear, and Evening Wear costumes.

Additionally, the number of save slots has increased to 25, and a new character (with S-support options for both male and female Byleth) can now be recruited in Part 2: Crimson Flower.

Check out the full update notes below, including changes coming to players without the Expansion Pass:

 

  • New and Updated Features
    • Increased the number of save files from 5 to 25. Note: Increased number of save files will require approximately 12MB of additional system memory space. If you don’t have enough space, you can delete some application data or images saved in the album.
    • Added a new option, In Battle, in Appearance Options, allowing the player to select the monastery outfits for battle as well.
      • Note: You can set this from the Unit Appearance menu in Personal Quarters.
      • Note: Depending on the outfit/character/class combination, some outfits may not be reflected for mounted units.

      • Note: Anna does not have Support relationships.
      • Note: Recruiting Anna unlocks a new paralogue after a certain chapter.
      • Note: It’s possible to set Anna as a traveler, but the recipient cannot recruit her as an Adjutant unless they also own the Expansion Pass.
