Game News Fire Emblem Warriors Three Hopes: The Nintendo Switch action game takes first place in England
New version of the Mûso series with Hyrule Warriors or One Piece, Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes seems to have a bright future. The figures from across the Channel have just fallen and the Nintendo Switch action game gleans first place in sales for the last week!
Superior to Fire Emblem Warriors?
Inherited from the Dynasty Warriors license, Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes is an action game hack’n slash in which the player faces entire armies. To get rid of waves of enemies, many combinations are available to the avatar who can illuminate the screen with his innumerable talents. It was in 1997 that the series was born, first in the form of a fighting game on PlayStation and then in the aspect of the titles that we know today. This is not the first time that Fire Emblem has been crunched with Musô sauce. It is enough to go back to 2017 to find the trace of a Fire Emblem Warriors published on Nintendo Switch, but also New 3DS. It is therefore a sequel that we welcome today, optimized as it should be. Compared to its predecessor, Three Hopes is more convincing and achieves a small feat!
Fire Emblem Three Hopes is No.1 in the UK boxed charts this week. The first time these Nintendo/Warriors games have managed it. Sales are above Fire Emblem Warriors, pretty much the same as Hyrule Warriors Definitive Edition and nowhere near Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity

A first for the Nintendo/Warriors association in Europe!
For Nintendo, this ranking is far from trivial. Indeed, it is the very first time that a Nintendo game stamped ” Warriors ” reaches the first place of the sales. It had never happened, including with Hyrule Warriors and the universe of Zelda. Sales of Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes are therefore higher than the previous episode and are close to those of the two Hyrule Warriors released some time ago. Once again, the Nintendo Switch ranks very well:
- 1 – Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes
- 2 – Horizon Forbidden West
- 3 – Mario Strikers: Battle League Football
- 4 – Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
- 5 – LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga
- 6-Nintendo Switch Sports
- 7 – Pokemon Legends: Arceus
- 9 – Animal Crossing: New Horizons
- 10 – Grand Theft Auto V
