Fire Emblem: Three Houses has only recently released for the Nintendo Switch, and players are already trying to get their in-game mack on. As expected, the newest Intelligent Systems release includes the option for players to romance and join into relationships with several different characters. Not all characters can be romanced, so read on to learn about each relationship option in Fire Emblem: Three Houses.


Romance and Relationships in Fire Emblem: Three Houses

Before trying to romance a character they like, Fire Emblem: Three Houses players will need to understand how in-game relationships work. Chiefly, romantic partners are available as Support relationships, where the protagonist Byleth builds rapport with his or her chosen partner.

Romance and relationship options won't be available at the start of the game, but instead become available after the game's structure changes. We don't want to provide any spoilers here, but suffice to say that players can begin building relationships with other characters once this shift occurs. After that, they;ll be able to check our relationship statuses and see which romantic options are available by looking through the in-game Support menu.
