Thursday was a big one for Fire Emblem.

It started with Byleth being revealed as Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s next fighter, and was followed up with a look at Three Houses’ new story content.

Making up Wave 4 of Three Houses’ expansion pass, the Cindered Shadows side story will bring along new characters, quests, and an area to explore.

Here’s the synopsis from Nintendo:

“Deep in the shadow of Garreg Mach lies Abyss, the underground den of Fódlan’s outcasts and home to the monastery’s secret fourth house, the Ashen Wolves. In this side story, you can freely explore Abyss, battle alongside four students from the Ashen Wolves house, take on new quests, and uncover the secrets that reside beneath the surface. Progress through the story to bring your four new subterranean students to the main story as recruitable units and enjoy the new classes, quests, paralogues, and activities that are also added with this DLC.”

The Cindered Shadows DLC will go up for download on the Nintendo Switch eShop Feb. 12.
