Fire Emblem Engage: Fell Xenologue Trailer & Release Date

Nintendo has shared a trailer for the upcoming Fell Xenologue story in Wave 4 of the Fire Emblem Engage Expansion Pass.

Similar to previous waves, Wave 4 will be available at the start of the next month: more precisely, 5th April 2023.

In addition, Nintendo Japan and the Fire Emblem Japanese Twitter shared additional information.

First, here’s the official artwork for the two new characters, Nel and Nil. Plus their profiles.

Nel (VA: Romi Park) is Nil’s older twin sister, a strong woman who fights alongside her brother. Together with the summoned Alear and Nil, she embarks on a journey to collect the 7 bracelets to save the world.

Nil (VA: Takuya Eguchi) is Nel’s younger twin brother, a kind-hearted young man who assists his sister. He feels ashamed that he’s not as talented as his exceptional older sister.

In the Japanese version, their names are El (Elle?) and Il.

Fire Emblem Engage: Preview Analysis III

Yesterday, several media outlets shared their previews of Fire Emblem Engage. Because there was so much new footage to cover, I’ve divided the analysis into two parts; the previous part can be found here.

As a reminder, it seems everyone played the first 8 chapters of the game, stopping around the defence of the Brodian castle.

Again, in no particular order…

Note: Here’s a playlist of all the featured previews.

Suliven Gaming

This is a French preview that shows a little bit of everything.

Near the start, the player goes through a bit of the character selection. As usual, you can choose your name, birthday, difficulty, mode (Casual or Classic) and network (likely online features, like Lost Spirits). Curiously the “Growth Method” option seen in Japanese screenshots isn’t present.

Afterwards, we see bits of Alear waking up at the Somniel, with a surprised Clanne and Framme present. Followed by Alear at Lythos, outside the Divine Dragon’s Castle, presumably before the Corrupted appear and attack?

The video then skips ahead to Alfred introducing the continent of Elyos to Alear.

We know that Eve rules Firene, Morion rules Brodia, Hyacinth rules Elusia and Sfoglia (tentative name) rules Solm. However, we haven’t seen Queen Sfoglia’s face before. It’s a bit obscured here, but better than nothing!

Fire Emblem Engage: Preview Analysis II

Today, various media outlets shared their previews for Fire Emblem Engage, which releases in 2 weeks. Back in December, a few outlets already shared their previews, but not on this scale.

In no particular order…

Note: Here’s a playlist of all the featured previews.


GameXplain actually has 3 videos; this one seems the meatiest.

The video begins with the game’s title screen. The background appears to be in the Divine Dragon’s Castle and it’s where a lot of stuff happens at the beginning.

Then we see some familiar cutscenes, like Alear waking up to Framme and Clanne, being rescued by Lumera’s dragon form, etc. Plus part of a support conversation between Alear and Framme, presumably.

The previews all seem to show footage from up to Chapter 8 or so. Still, please be advised there are some mild spoilers.

Fire Emblem Engage: Emblem Micaiah Analysis

We hope you enjoyed the New Year holiday! At last, it seems the official Fire Emblem JP Twitter has resumed its scheduled posts.

The Fire Emblem Engage content for today includes Emblem Micaiah’s profile and overview, among other things.

Micaiah’s profile:

Micaiah (VA: Natsuko Kuwatani), known as the Emblem of Dawn, has mysterious powers, such as healing and foreseeing the future.

A bond conversation with Vander:

Now, onto the overview itself:

Micaiah has high Magic and healing capabilities, so she’s great at healing allies. She’s a support and healing-focused Emblem who can allow any ally to wield staves.
