Fire Emblem Engage overview

With the release date of Fire Emblem Engage drawing closer, Nintendo has released a trailer going over gameplay features in some detail. A nine-minute Fire Emblem Engage overview trailer gives players the rundown on its systems.

The Fire Emblem Engage gameplay overview trailer is in Japanese, and is more or less a condensation of information released piecemeal through social media and other channels. The exception to this is individual character information, as the trailer focuses more on general systems and world-building information. Though there’s not much that hasn’t been detailed or hinted at before, the Fire Emblem Engage overview trailer functions as an effective capsule view of the game.

Systems like the game’s central mechanic of Engaging with the Emblems based on other Fire Emblem titles’ heroes is seen front-and-center. Characters can equip special rings that invoke the powers of characters like Marth, Lucina, and Byleth. Using them also allows the character to change their appearance and carry out unique attacks. Different The game’s various classes are also highlighted, as is the ability to change characters’ classes or upgrade their current class to maximize their potential.

Gameplay in the home base area of Somniel (“Soranel” in the Japanese edition) is also shown in the Fire Emblem Engage overview trailer. Minigames like exercising, wyvern riding, and pet care are showcased. The ability to visit characters, have conversations with them, and see them in their “off-duty” wear is highlighted.
