Byleth in Fire Emblem Engage Can Rewind Time

The latest Fire Emblem Engage character that Nintendo introduced is Byleth, one of the past heroes you can summon with an Emblem Ring.  Byleth was the protagonist of Fire Emblem: Three Houses, which was the previous mainline title. While the player could choose Byleth’s gender in their actual game, Byleth will appear as a man in Fire Emblem Engage.

Byleth will be a support unit. He can raise his allies’ stats, as well as use Divine Pulse to reset an attack. If an attack was going to miss, he can rewind time and the attack will land on the second try. There is a chance that Divine Pulse will not work, though, so the success rate will likely depend on one of Byleth’s stats. Byleth will work the best when around allies, rather than on his own.

There is also a conversation between Alcryst and Byleth, which lets someone see how the characters interact with the past heroes. In the short clip, Byleth compliments Alcryst on his skills in the previous battle. However, Alcryst takes it the wrong way. After reacting with fear, he asks if Byleth is indirectly telling him that he needs to defeat more enemies.

Byleth is part of the Emblem Ring system that will be a main feature in Fire Emblem Engage. In the game, you can have Emblem Rings to summon past heroes from the series. Some of the characters Nintendo confirmed so far include Marth, Lyn, and Sigurd. The original characters of Engage can also synchronize and combine with past heroes with Engage in order to boost their stats and unlock special skills.

Fire Emblem Engage is in development and will come out on January 20, 2023 for the Nintendo Switch. It is available for pre-order in the eShop.
