During Japan Expo 2019, the French website JeuxVideo interviewed Fire Emblem: Three Houses’ director Toshiyuki Kasukihara and game producer Genki Yokota about the next entry in the series coming to the Nintendo Switch on July 26.
When asked about the run time of the game, Kasukihara revealed that playing through just one of the three houses will take about 80 hours.
“To the end the game with just one of the three houses, it took me 80 hours. I did not cut the vocals or cutscenes, of course.” Kasukihara said, “So if you want to do the three paths, it can take you more than 200 hours.”
JeuxVideo said the three different houses will lead to three different ends, so if you want to see every ending, you’re looking at a play time of more than 200 hours. The previous titles in the series have been long games, so this statement can be taken as fairly accurate.
