Fire Emblem Engage’s Fogato and Hortensia Detailed

Fire Emblem Engage Fogato

Nintendo released new information on Fogato and Hortensia, two characters in the upcoming SRPG Fire Emblem Engage. They appear as a Sentinel and Wing Tamer.

Fogato is the first prince of the “Kingdom of Solm” and the younger brother of Timerra. Solm’s monarchy is matriarchal, and because of that he enjoyed a more lax upbringing than that of his sister. Fogato is an optimistic and composed prince, and he seems to roam around his country with the purpose or protecting its citizens.

Fogato saves Alear while they were lost in the desert. It’s hard to tell if he’s naturally friendly or never takes things seriously. Fogato’s starting class is Sentinel, like his sister Timerra. He rides a horse and fights using a bow.

Hortensia is the second princess of the “Kingdom of Elusia” and Ivy’s younger sister. She is innocent and selfish, but affectionate toward her peers. She is trying to take away Alear’s Emblem Rings, under the orders of his father, the King of Elusia. For that purpose, she is commanding Elusia’s troops to occupy the great bridge connecting to Brodia.

Hortensia’s starting class is Wing Tamer, same as her sister Ivy. She rides a Pegasus and uses magical tomes and staves to cast magic at her enemies from a distance.

KENN will voice Fogato in the Japanese dub of Fire Emblem Engage. He has previously voiced Jaden Yuki in the Yu-Gi-Oh! franchise, David Martinez in Cyberpunk: Edgerunners, and Krohnen in The King of Fighters franchise.

Hina Kino will voice Hortensia in Fire Emblem Engage. She is also the voice of Mikiti in Kaguya-sama: Love Is War, Misato Yanagihara in Erased, and Sylvia Silkcut in Hybrid × Heart Magias Academy Ataraxia.

Fire Emblem Engage will come out worldwide on January 20, 2023 for the Nintendo Switch.
