A new Fire Emblem: Three Houses update is now live. Alongside the patch, Nintendo has released the game’s second wave of Expansion Pass DLC, and it includes new outfits for protagonist Byleth and other characters, additional auxiliary battles, and more.
First, Expansion Pass holders can change Byleth and the students into new loungewear based on their respective houses, while Byleth also receives an additional accessory: glasses. You can take a look at the new outfits below. However, Nintendo notes the loungewear is “only wearable inside the monastery, or for specific unit classes during battle.”

In addition to the outfits, Nintendo has added a handful of new auxiliary battles to take on. There are five new battles in total, and they may reward you with special status-up items such as Ailell Pomegranate and more Gold. You can see the full list of new auxiliary battles below:
- Battle at Lake Teutates
- Battle in the Forest
- Battle at Gronder Field
- Battle at the Sealed Forest
- Battle at Conand Tower.
Finally, Expansion Pass holders have received another pack of helpful DLC Supplies. You can receive the following items from the bed in Byleth’s personal quarters:
- Sacred Galewind Shoes (Movement +1)
- Sacred Floral Robe (HP +7)
- Sacred Snowmelt Drop (Strength +3)
- Sacred Moonstone (Speed +3)
This marks the second wave of DLC Nintendo has released for Fire Emblem: Three Houses since its launch this past July. The company still has two more waves of additional content in store for the game. The next is slated to arrive sometime by the end of the year, and it will add new quests and costumes to the game. The fourth wave, meanwhile, will launch by April 30, 2020 and is introducing new story content, including additional playable characters and locations.
All four waves of DLC are only available as part of Fire Emblem: Three Houses’ Expansion Pass and cannot be purchased individually. The pass runs for $25 USD / £22.49 / $37.50 AU. You can read more details about it on Nintendo’s website.
Beyond the new DLC, the new Fire Emblem: Three Houses update adds a new, more challenging difficulty mode for all players: Maddening. It also makes a few other changes to the game; you can read the full patch notes for Three Houses’ latest update here.
