See What Chrom and Robin are Capable of in Fire Emblem Engage

Fire Emblem Engage Chrom Robin

Nintendo shared new information about Chrom and Robin, the “Emblem of Bonds” and the new DLC Emblem Bracelet for Fire Emblem Engage. The pair combines Chrome’s swordsmanship and Robin’s magic abilities and tactical prowess to play with their opponents.

Their Sync Skill is “Surprise Attack,” and it prevents enemies from counterattacking when initiating attacks from terrain with evasion bonuses. Their Engage Attack “Arcthunder Sword” attacks enemies with a sword infused with magical power.

Their Engage Skill is “Other Half,” and it allows Robin to join in with a Chain Attack when initiating the attack. Their Engage Weapon is the classic “Levin Sword,” which allows the pair to attack from a distance with lightning magic.

Chrom and Robin share a bond beyond that of fate, and they show it in a conversation with Alear when both awake from their Emblem Bracelet at the same time. Similar to Edelgard, Dimitri, and Claude, they are both considered a single Emblem.

Tomokazu Sugita voices Chrom in the Japanese dub of Fire Emblem Engage. Sugita is best known for his roles as Yusuke Kitagawa in Persona 5, young Joseph Joestar in the 2012 anime adaptation of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, and Gintoki Sakata in the Gintama anime adaptation.

Meanwhile, Yoshimasa Hosoya voices Robin. He has previously voiced Bladewolf in the Japanese dub of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, Sonon Kusakabe in Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade, and Reiner Braun in Attack on Titan.

Fire Emblem Engage is immediately available for the Nintendo Switch, and Chrom and Robin will appear alongside Veronica in Wave 3 of the DLC Expansion Pass. That will be released on March 7, 2023 in North America and March 8, 2023 in Japan.
