Fire Emblem Engage is the newest tactical RPG installment in the Fire Emblem series. In this game, players will command a cast of skilled characters, known as units, and lead them to victory. Its gameplay will be similar to earlier entries in the series, with the addition of Emblem Rings that enable units to battle alongside lords from past Fire Emblem games.
Recently, Nintendo released a new Fire Emblem Engage trailer, detailing the game’s mechanics and how to use the Emblem Rings. Watch the Fire Emblem -Engaging with Emblems- trailer, courtesy of Nintendo’s official Youtube channel:
In Fire Emblem Engage, fights may be enhanced by using rings that contain the power of Emblems. When equipped with Emblem Rings, units sync with Emblems, enhancing their strength and granting them access to unique talents. There will be a substantial difference between not synchronized and synchronized with Emblems while facing the same foe.
Through engaging Emblems and fusing them with units, battles may be enhanced in a further way. During combat, players will be able to use unique weapons and talents that offer specific powers to units. Additionally, players will be able to unleash devastating engage attacks to crush adversaries. Meanwhile, the engage status only lasts three turns, but the meter will replenish as players advance in combat. Once recharged, players will be ready to engage once again. As such, keep an eye on the meter and adjust the strategy accordingly.
The teaser also revealed returning characters from previous Fire Emblem games. Sigurd (Emblem of the Holy War), Celica (Emblem of Echoes), Corrin (Emblem of Fates), Byleth (Emblem of the Academy), and Lyn (Emblem of Blazing) are among the Emblem heroes revealed in the teaser. Apart from the Emblems themselves, Fire Emblem engage introduces several new faces and personalities that are all capable of equipping Emblem Rings.
Fire Emblem engage will be available on January 20th only on Nintendo Switch. Digital pre-orders are available now on Nintendo eShop.
