Fire Emblem Engage retains the turn-based strategy elements of previous Fire Emblem games, with "rich strategies and robust customization" available during each battle. Throughout the adventure players will collect Emblem Rings, which are items needed to summon heroes from Fire Emblem's past. Marth and Sigurd are two examples of heroes that can be summoned in the trailer.
Fire Emblem Engage is a brand-new entry in the Fire Emblem franchise, following 2019's Fire Emblem: Three Houses. The game launches exclusively on Nintendo Switch on January 20.
