Today’s Nintendo Direct kicked off with a bang, with the reveal of a new, mainline Fire Emblem game. You won’t have to wait too long to get your hands on Fire Emblem Engage either. It’s coming to Nintendo Switch on January 20th.
Along with the announcement, Nintendo offered a first look at gameplay. Fire Emblem Engage appears to have grid-based, real-time strategy elements, along with turn-based battles and open-world exploration. You’ll be able to summon heroes such as Marth (who’s making his return to the Fire Emblem series) and Celica in your battle against “a great evil.”
Become the Divine Dragon and save the continent of Elyos!
