Timed to Byleth’s Super Smash Bros. Ultimate debut, it looks like Fire Emblem: Three Houses is getting some expansive new content of its own. While we’d known Three Houses was due for a fourth wave of DLC based on new story content, a new trailer has gone up revealing that Wave 4 brings a fourth house:


“Cindered Shadows,” previously known only as “Abyss Mode,” will feature the Ashen Wolves: a secret (though perhaps unofficial) house within Garreg Mach, dwelling in a section beneath the Monastery known as “Abyss.”

They include Yuri, Balthus, Constance, and Hapi, with Yuri seemingly their leader ala Edelgard, Claude, and Dimitri.

Playing through the side story will allow you to fight alongside them as you learn more about Abyss. 


Deep in the shadow of Garreg Mach lies Abyss, the underground den of Fódlan’s outcasts and home to the monastery’s secret fourth house, the Ashen Wolves. In this side story, you can freely explore Abyss, battle alongside four students from the Ashen Wolves house, take on new quests, and uncover the secrets that reside beneath the surface. Progress through the story to bring your four new subterranean students to the main story as recruitable units and enjoy the new classes, quests, paralogues, and activities that are also added with this DLC. – Part of Fire Emblem: There Houses Expansion Pass. DLC wave 4 will be available on February 12th 2020 in the US.


Fire Emblem: Three Houses will add the Cindered Shadows DLC on February 12th, 2020; it is included as a part of the Three Houses DLC Expansion Pass, available for $24.99.
