Nintendo revealed some new information on Eirika and Ephraim as they will appear in Fire Emblem Engage. The two of them will be in the same Emblem Ring, much like the Three Houses kids. The two were playable units and protagonists in Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones, and are twin siblings.

Unlike the Three Houses kids, you can control when you want Eirika and when you want Ephraim in Fire Emblem Engage. This could make them a flexible and balanced unit. Eirika’s Lunar Brace Synchro Skill deals more damage the higher an enemy’s Defense stat is, whereas Ephraim can heal HP depending on how much damage he deals with Solar Brace. When you Engage with them, you get to use the Rapier, which deals extra damage to Cavalry and Armored units. You will also be able to use both Lunar and Solar Brace at once.

We can also see a brief conversation between Celine and Eirika. In it, Celine asks if Eirika is upset that she has to fight so much even though she dislikes conflict. Eirika replies that she does what she can, and that she fights so that there are less people in the world who are sad due to war.

In Japanese, Kaori Mizuhashi voices Eirika. Mizuhashi’s previous roles include Kuki Shinobu from Genshin Impact and Mami Tomoe in Puella Magi Madoka Magica. As for Ephraim, Taku Yashiro voices him. Yashiro’s other roles include the titular Tiger Mask in Tiger Mask W and Natsuo Fujii in Domestic Girlfriend.

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