Fire Emblem: Three Houses (Switch): all you need to know about DLC, Expansion Pass (line-up, schedule, pricing)

Back in 2012, Fire Emblem Awakening (on Nintendo 3DS) was one of the very first Nintendo games to get proper paid DLC. Fire Emblem Fates, released a couple of years later, also received a fair amount of DLC with various additional quests. Of course, it was all but guaranteed that Fire Emblem: Three Houses would also get DLC, especially as Nintendo has made it a key element of their strategy on Nintendo Switch (to keep players engaged).

On this page, you will find all there is to know about the DLC for Fire Emblem: Three Houses on Nintendo Switch, including the full line-up, the release schedule, pricing, and more. It will be updated on a regular basis, as new details are announced by Nintendo (the page is quite empty at the moment, since all we know so far is that the game is getting DLC… and that’s pretty much it!).
