Fire Emblem Engage: Marth Tidbits via Twitter

We have another Fire Emblem Engage official Twitter post this week!

Following Alear and the Dragon Guardians, this time we have some details for Marth, the first Fire Emblem protagonist and likely the first Emblem you’ll acquire.

His profile:

The Emblem Marth (VA: Hikaru Midorikawa), also known as the “Emblem of Beginnings” is a hero among heroes who’s extremely noble and charismatic. A prince of Altea, from the outrealm continent of Archanea.

“Emblem of Beginnings” is a fitting title for the first protagonist. Although I do wonder if it’ll have some story significance.

As usual, next up is a battle.

This appears to be the same verdant kingdom map that appeared in the reveal trailer.

On the left is the footage from today’s Twitter post; on the right is from the reveal trailer.

The only difference is that Alear is now equipped with Marth–and receives a stat boost because of this. (Also, Framme is still to the far left; she’s just blocked by Alear’s portrait right now.)

When Alear moves towards the enemy, we see the actions menu, which wasn’t shown in the trailer. The first option is Engage, which combines Alear and Marth. Next are Attack, Item, Convoy and Wait. Presumably Alear acts as the convoy, so he/she can access it whenever, while other characters must move next to Alear to do so.

Alear’s weapons/items include Libération, an Iron Sword and Vulnerary. Libération is a D rank sword it seems (that or it’s Alear’s sword rank that’s D). It’s said to be “for Divine Dragons only” and grants Engage Count +1 if the wielder lands the finishing blow on an enemy. Engage Count probably refers to the countdown before an Engaged character reverts.

Fire Emblem Engage: Framme Tidbits via Twitter

Nevermind, I give up predicting the Japanese Fire Emblem Engage Twitter posts!

Today, we have a few details about Framme, Cramme’s younger sister who appeared in the reveal trailer.

First, her profile:

Framme (Sayaka Senbongi) is a 33rd generation Dragon Guardian, protecting the Divine Dragon at the Land of Lythos. She’s Cramme’s younger twin sister and more determined and lively compared to her brother.

As expected, she’s also a 33rd generation Dragon Guardian, like Cramme. It makes me wonder if there could be other Dragon Guardians besides Vander and the twins. Since Cramme was described as the gentle twin, it doesn’t surprise me that Framme is the more lively one.

Monk is an interesting class; in Blazing Blade and The Sacred Stones, it was a Light magic wielding class. Here, it seems to be a Brawling and Staff class, as we’ll see later.

Next is a video showcasing Framme in battle. On the surface, it’s not super interesting because we already saw Framme fighting in the reveal trailer. But there are a few things of note.

Beforehand, some of the more boring stuff. This map is the same one from the Cramme spotlight. It’s also the same map that Framme was fighting in the reveal trailer. Looking at the map, the allies are unchanged although Alfred and Céline have Engaged with their Emblems.

Unlike Alear, Vander and Cramme, Framme’s skill doesn’t seem to trigger for adjacent units. It also does not seem to trigger during battle.

Her Monk class belongs to the Qigong category, unlike Mystical for Cramme’s Mage or Céline’s Noble classes. Qigong is a form of martial art, with roots in China and other parts of Asia, which focuses “life energy” (Qi) into movement, posture, etc.

Fire Emblem Engage: Cramme Tidbits via Twitter

Okay, it seems like the official Japanese Fire Emblem Twitter isn’t doing daily Fire Emblem Engage Twitter posts, but weekly ones instead.

This week, they’re showcasing Cramme, the young mage boy who seems to join near the start of the game.

His profile:

Cramme (Kōhei Amasaki) is a 33rd generation Dragon Guardian, protecting the Divine Dragon at the Land of Lythos, alongside Vander. He is Framme’s older twin brother and was by Alear’s side when they awoke. A gentle priest who serves–and is also a fan of–Alear.

For the record, we don’t know what his English name is. In the Japanese version, his name is Kuran (Clan etc.). But considering his sister was renamed from Furan (Fran) to Framme, I tried to do something similar.

Here’s a video of Cramme performing a critical hit in battle, using the Fire spell.

Judging from the background, this seems to be the same map where Framme was fighting an Elusian Soldier in the reveal trailer. The enemy that Cramme is fighting (some kind of armoured knight) is also labelled as an Elusian Soldier.

Fire Emblem Engage: Alear & Vander Tidbits via Twitter

With the exception of the weekend, it seems, the Japanese Fire Emblem Twitter has been posting daily about Fire Emblem Engage. Some of the info is stuff from the reveal trailer, but there’s some new stuff scattered around too.

First up is a short clip showing Alear in battle, performing a critical hit.

This seems to occur in the very first map (not counting a potential Premonition map), since Alear is Level 1 and the Dragon Guardian twins haven’t joined your party yet (currently they’re NPCs).

Interestingly, the Forest tile provides 30 Avoid.

The foes on the map are the Corrupted, although they’re labelled as ??? because presumably Alear doesn’t know what they are yet. At this point, Alear hasn’t summoned Marth yet.

The above screenshots from the reveal trailer, I believe are from the same map. I think the map will end with Alear reuniting with the twins. But then they become surrounded by the Corrupted and Alear summons Marth to deal with them.

Next is a bunch of info for Vander, the older Dragon Guardian.

His profile:

Vander (VA Yōji Ueda) is a 32nd generation “Dragon Guardian”, protectors of the Divine Dragon at the Land of Lythos. Cared for Alear who was asleep for ages and a reliable ally who’s sworn loyalty to Alear. Very serious and strict; the guardians’ mission is at the forefront of his mind.
