Fire Emblem Engage revealed and is launching on January 20, 2023 for the Nintendo Switch

Nintendo has revealed the next mainline Fire Emblem game in today's Nintendo Direct with Fire Emblem Engage. It kicked off the event and it will be launching for the Nintendo Switch on January 20, 2023.


The mythology of Fire Emblem Engage revolves around the Fell Dragon that was slain a thousand years ago with the help of heroes from other words, known as Emblems; these Emblems are past heroes from the Fire Emblem series, including Marth, Lyn, Celica, and more.

Now, the Fell Dragon's seal is weakening and it may reawaken once again. Players in Fire Emblem Engage must become the Divine Dragon to save the continent of Elyos. One of the most distinguishing features in Fire Emblem Engage is that a character wields a ring that can call upon past Fire Emblem characters as spirits that aid them by their side in battle. As they continue to fight alongside them, their Bond will increase with them overtime.

Fire Emblem Engage continues upon the visual advancements made from the previous Fire Emblem: Three Houses, along with a new explorable town to serve as the hub in-between battles. One of the new features briefly teased in Fire Emblem Engage is that players can equip multiple new optional outfits to their characters and it will change their appearance to reflect it.

Check out its announcement trailer, details, and some screenshots down below.

In a war against the Fell Dragon, four kingdoms worked together with heroes from other worlds to seal away this great evil. One-thousand years later, this seal has weakened and the Fell Dragon is about to reawaken. As a Divine Dragon, use rich strategies and robust customization to meet your destiny—to collect Emblem Rings and bring peace back to the Continent of Elyos.
