Today’s Nintendo Direct kicked off with a bang with the reveal of a new mainline game, Fire Emblem. You don’t have to wait too long to get your hands on it Engage Fire Emblem either. It will be released for Nintendo Switch on January 20th.
A thousand years after four kingdoms and heroes from far and wide worked together to imprison a fallen dragon, this so-called great evil is ready to emerge again. Your task is to collect emblem rings scattered around the world in order to bring peace to the continent of Elyos.
Along with the announcement, Nintendo offered a first look at the gameplay. Engage Fire Emblem appears to have grid-based real-time strategy elements, along with turn-based combat and open-world exploration. The game will feature a new cast of customizable characters, although you can summon heroes like Marth (who returns to the Fire Emblem series) and Celica in your quest.
You can pre-order Engage Fire Emblem now in the Nintendo eShop. A physical Divine Edition with steelbook and art case will also be available.
Become the Divine Dragon and save the continent of Elyos!
