Fire Emblem Engage’s Lucina Awakens the Power of Her Allies

Fire Emblem Engage Lucina

Nintendo showcased Lucina’s abilities as an Emblem in the upcoming Fire Emblem Engage. Lucina, also known as the “Emblem of Awakening,” is a holy princess who believes in hope and never falls to despair. Lucina is best suited paired with a front row fighter. However, her gimmick lies on providing incredible offensive and defensive support to nearby allies.

Lucina comes from the world of Fire Emblem Awakening, conquered by the Fell Dragon Grima. Because of this, the beauty of Elyos can easily distract her, as this land is still fighting darkness and remains with hope. Here is a conversation between Lucina and Etie, a knight from the Kingdom of Firene:

Lucina’s Synchro Skill is called “Dual Strike.” It allows any unit to perform a Chain Attack regardless of class. The further Lucina’s attack range, the more chances to stack a Chain Attack. Her Link Weapon, “Noble Rapier,” inflicts massive damage to Mounted units and those carrying Heavy Armor. “Bond Shield” is Lucina’s Engage Skill. It has a high chance of nullifying damage aimed at adjacent allies. When Lucina is paired with a unit that uses Martial Arts, “Bond Shield” will always activate. “All For One” is Lucina’s Engage Attack. It allows all allies within two squares to participate in Chain Attacks. It can lead to massive damage depending on the player’s formation. Because of the benefits she can confer, Lucina works best surrounded by allied units, acting as their commander.

Yuu Kobayashi voices Lucina in the Japanese dub for Fire Emblem Engage. She is best known for her roles as Valdi in Xenoblade Chronicles 3, Luka Urushibara in Steins;Gate, and Sasha Blouse in Attack on Titan.

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