Fire Emblem Engage Lyn Attacks Relentlessly

Fire Emblem Engage Lyn

Intelligent Systems detailed another Fire Emblem alum making an appearance in Fire Emblem Engage: Lyn from Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade. As with previous Emblem character reveals, the info came via the official Fire Emblem Engage Twitter account.

Check it out below.

In Fire Emblem Engage, Lyn is an Emblem character that can be paired with another unit to enhance its abilities and bring new options to the table. Lyn’s specialty is a fierce and unrelenting offense. This momentum denies enemies a counterattack. It’s also suited is suited both to short- and long-range units, so Lyn is best paired with the heaviest hitters in a formation. Her Link Skill, “Offensive,” delivers a follow-up attack before the enemy can counter, should their speed stat be higher than the opponent’s. Her “Killer Bow” link weapon boosts the critical hit rate of an attacker. Lyn has the “Afterimages” Engage Skill, too, which summons doubles that can attract enemy attention. They also facilitate chain attacks over a wide area. Lyn can also use her “Meteor Shower” Engage Attack to deliver a punishing blow from a long range, risk-free. “Covert” units can use the skill with a greatly increased range.

Before Fire Emblem Engage, Lyn, also known as Lyndis, was one of the main characters of 2003’s Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade (released outside Japan as simply Fire Emblem) on the Game Boy Advance. Lyn was a solitary nomad of the Sacaen plains, but in truth was a granddaughter of a lord of Caelin, putting her in line to lead the kingdom. Depending on the ending of the game, Lyn can also become the mother of Roy, the protagonist of Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade.

Another tidbit from Fire Emblem Engage shows Lyn in conversation with Etie. Lyn is voiced by Makiko Ohmoto, who also voices Kirby in the Kirby series, Ness in Super Smash Bros., and Saiyaka Maizono in the Danganronpa series.

In the clip, Etie remarks on Lyn’s physique, praising her potential to gain impressive muscles. Lyn replies by saying her training is usually oriented towards archery and swordsmanship, but that a bit of bodybuilding might be an interesting pursuit.

Fire Emblem Engage launches on the Nintendo Switch on January 20, 2023. Check out reveals detailing other characters, like Fogato and Hortensia.
