Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes is the second game in the Warriors sub-franchise for Fire Emblem. Three Hopes is set in the same world as Fire Emblem: Three Houses, and stars the same characters as the game.

The theme of Fire Emblem: Three Houses is complicated, with four different timelines, each storyline being diverged when Byleth decides what house they want to teach. Although the first half of Three House is roughly the same in all four settings, they differ greatly once the conflict comes to an end. Each route has its own end, which is considerably different from the other.

It''s not as if the four routes exist in four different timelines either, as the player must end up with all the characters at the end of each route. This means there are four main timelines, depending on who gets married.
Three Houses has no main canon storyline, but there are a lot of different timelines. Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes complicates things even further by taking place in a universe where Shez is the main playable protagonist.

Those aspects of the game should be considered canon to the overall greater mythology of the Three Houses
