Earlier than its projected October 31st delivery date, Wave 2 of the Expansion Pass for Fire Emblem: Three Houses dropped out of the blue last week. The update brought with it new items, equipment, stylish glasses, and auxiliary battles for those who purchased the DLC pass, as well as Maddening difficulty via a free update. At the time of writing, Waves 3 and 4 of the Expansion Pass are due by December 31 and April 30, 2020; while these updates are a fair ways off, new details for what’s to come came to light via a recently released Famitsu guidebook for the game in Japan.

Corroborated by Fire Emblem news outlet Serenes Forest, the guidebook provides some details as what’s to come down the line for the Expansion Pass, including new playable characters and the story DLC:

Wave 3

  • Playable character: Jeritza (certain routes only)
  • Support conversations

  • Maid and Butler battalions

Wave 4

Paid DLC

  • New hero relics

As of now, no actual release date is specific for the remaining waves of Fire Emblem: Three Houses’ Expansion Pass, and the content of the unreleased DLC is subject to change before launch. Nonetheless, it’s certainly nice to have a better idea of what’s to come. Also, do I really get to play with cats around the monastery? As if I haven’t sunk enough hours into Three Houses already!
