Fire Emblem Engage: Out Now, Icon Elements & Comic Adaptation!

Today is 20th January, which means Fire Emblem Engage is officially out!

To celebrate the occasion, the official Fire Emblem Twitter shared this stunning artwork.

Also, they sure took their sweet time, but Fire Emblem icons are now available for the Nintendo Switch! However, you will need a Nintendo Switch Online subscription.

Starting now, you can redeem FE Engage icon elements via the Mission & Rewards tab, by using Platinum Coins (you can obtain these from playing FE Heroes for instance). There will be 6 sets, available for one week each, beginning from each Friday.

Last but not least, FE Engage is getting a comic adaptation in Japan!

A prologue, which occurs before Alear awakens, will feature in the March issue of Saikyō Jump, available from 3rd Feb. The comic will then properly begin with Chapter 1 in Saikyō Jump’s April issue alongside Shōnen Jump+.

The artist is 今日和老 (Kyou Kazuro).

Nintendo Direct: Fire Emblem Engage, New Mainline Entry Arriving 20th January 2023!

During today’s Nintendo Direct, the first game to be shown was a brand new Fire Emblem game, titled Fire Emblem Engage.

The game will launch on the Nintendo Switch on 20th January 2023. A special edition was also announced for North America, Japan and Europe. (We’ll update when/if there’s details for other countries.)

For those following some of the recent Fire Emblem leaks, you may recognise “Toothpaste-chan”, who appears to be the female version of the red and blue-haired main character.

We’ll be working on an analysis of the trailer (and perhaps the leaks on another day), so please hold tight!

Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes Out Now!

It’s 24th June 2022, which means FE Warriors: Three Hopes has been officially released!

To mark the occasion, Nintendo has shared a launch trailer for the game.

Also, we’ve added a work-in-progress section for the game on our dedicated wiki. There’s quite a lot of content to cover, so we’re looking for volunteers to help.

In any case, we hope you enjoy the game~

Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes Announced, Releasing 24th June 2022

In today’s Nintendo Direct, we started with a bombshell: Fire Emblem is getting a second Musou (Warriors) game. Seeing as Koei Tecmo did assist with making Three Houses, it’ll be quite the graceful spin from Fire Emblem fare to Warriors fare.

With Age of Calamity‘s massive success for Zelda, not to mention modest success for the original Fire Emblem Warriors, KT and Nintendo saw fit to give us a Three Houses Warriors in a similar vein.

Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes releases on 24th June 2022 globally. It can be pre-ordered from the eShop right now.

The game weighs at 15.6 GB. Various text languages are included* and there will be English and Japanese dual audio. There is 2 player multi-player (requires 1 Joy-Con each). The Switch Pro Controller is supported.

* German, English, Spanish, French, Italian, Japanese, Korean and Chinese (Simplified and Traditional). Some languages aren’t available in the physical release (maybe they need to be downloaded?).

Digital editions of the game come with an “Owl Perch” bonus. An owl will appear in your personal quarters; talking to it will give you an Owl Feather, used for gaining support points with allies. This is not included with the physical edition, but may be offered for purchase later on (as DLC).

Japan and Europe, at least, will be receiving limited edition bundles. Both include the game itself, an artbook, tapestry map, set of 5 acrylic figures and a character postcard set.

More details on the Japanese side of things can be found on the game’s official website.

Please continue for our analysis of the trailer.
