Why are some shocked that they would do something so obvious? Koei Tecmo helped develop Three Houses after all. It's like thinking that Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity is the actual Breath of The Wild 2.
As much as I wanted to see what the next Fire Emblem remake would be the direct had enough remakes shown off.
I think Nintendo is depending too much on Tecmo Koei and Musou Games.
Four games of the same two franchises.
They could at least choose another Nintendo franchise to make a Musou game, like Xenoblade Chronicles. Xenoblade is begging for a Musou game, it has everything a Musou needs, a huge cast, cool weapons, mechas, beatiful scenarios and music...
