Fire Emblem: Engage

Moby ID: 198202

Description

Fire Emblem: Engage is a Tactical RPG in the Fire Emblem series. The game features characters both new characters and returning characters from previous titles that can be summoned through Emblem Rings. The combat is top down with 2D and 3D graphics similar to more recent console and hand-held Fire Emblem games. There are mini games such as a fishing minigame, a fitness minigame, and a wyvern riding minigame. The story centers around the country of Elyos. Alear, a divine dragon, is awoken from a one thousand year slumber to help defeat the Fell Dragon by gathering the Emblem Rings spread across Elyos.

Engage features characters and other content pulled from across past entries in the series. While previous Fire Emblem titles like Awakening feature characters pulled from titles set outside their specific world and canon as DLC or other bonus content, Engage is the first mainline series entry to directly feature characters from all preceding core titles in the central narrative since Fire Emblem Gaiden/Shadows of Valentia. Engage features a playable Avatar character, Alear. They are customizable for their name, birthday, gender, and have clothing options available in game.

The game utilizes the Weapon Triangle system featured in past Fire Emblem games, which is with the traditional relationship of swords over axes, axes over lances, and lances over swords. However, this relationship is augmented by the presence of fist weapons, which have advantage over magic, bows, and daggers. After the completion of a battle, Alear may wander the battlefield, talk to allies and NPCs, and collect items in the same manner that the Somniel may be explored. Units that participated in battle may give Alear Bond Fragments depending on their contribution in the fight. Units that have not been deployed in battle recently may also give Alear a small amount of Bond Fragments while asking to consider deploying them in the future. Alear and their party may also collect Emblem Rings throughout the story which are a type of accessory that can be equipped to grant assistance and power of a spirit version of a past Fire Emblem hero. When a character has a ring equipped, they gain special stat bonuses and skills. As battle progresses, the special gauge will fill, and when full, the unit can take on an enhanced form by merging with the Emblem, which grants access to powerful combat arts. The Engaged state lasts for three turns at a time.
