Fire Emblem Trailer Explains Engage Rings, Then Summons Byleth and Corrin

Posted on

A new Fire Emblem Engage trailer has detailed how players can summon “Emblems” characters from previous Fire Emblem games. Units will be able to equip the Engage Ring to gain the ability to wield the power of a hero such as Marth or Byleth. When units equip the rings, they become syncopated with the Emblem, increasing their statistics and giving them access to new, Emblem-specific skills. Depending on the performance in the trailer, this will make a huge difference in the power level of a unit.

Entities can also “attach” to the emblem, creating a new form even more powerful than a synced form. In addition to gaining access to special weapons, the player can use Engage Skills: unique abilities that date back to the original games of Emblem. For example, since Blythe was a teacher in Fire Emblem: Three Houses, one of her abilities allows her to teach nearby units, increasing their stats. Meanwhile, Corrin can use an ability called Dragon Vein, which transforms the terrain just like she was able to in Fire Emblem Fates.

In total, the trailer showed six emblems: Marth (Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon), Sigurd (Fire Emblem: Lineage of the Holy War), Celica (Fire Emblem Gaiden / Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia), Lin (Fire Emblem): The Blazing Blade), Corrin (Fire Emblem Fates), and Byleth (Fire Emblem: Three Houses). apart from this, last week’s trailer shows glimpses of Ike and Lucina, and then mentions 12 rings, meaning the Engage will display more symbols at launch.

Fire Emblem Engage was announced at a Nintendo Direct back in September. The initial trailer revealed that the game’s protagonist, Elior, is the Divine Dragon, a descendant of a royal family of dragons that defeated the Fel Dragon many years ago. We’ll know the full story and much more when the game launches on January 20, 2023.
