After months of silence, Nintendo came out swinging in their latest Nintendo Direct. Kicking off the video was a big surprise for RPG fans. A new entry in the Fire Emblem franchise, Fire Emblem Engage!
The new entry in the franchise takes place on the continent of Elyos. You wake up as an untitled protagonist who finds out they are a divine dragon with the quest to gather mysterious rings to save the land. What do these rings do? Summon heroes from the series’ past to aid you, like Marth and Celica! You can check out the reveal trailer below.
As a fan of the franchise, Fire Emblem Engage piqued my interest within seconds of the trailer starts. That wheel filled with lords of past games includes some of my all-time favorites, like Roy and Lyn. But how will they play into this new title? Plus, who are some of our new heroes and villains? Color me excited to find out when the game arrives!
Fire Emblem Engage launches exclusively for the Nintendo Switch on January 20th, 2023. We will update readers on future news and developments on the game as we get closer to launch.
