Fire Emblem Engage
The newest entry in the Fire Emblem franchise, Fire Emblem Engage, celebrates the series’ past while continuing to move it forward. Using a new mechanic called “Engage Rings,” players can summon heroes from the franchise’s past, including Celica, Marth, & Lyn.
However, it seems to have returned to these roots in more ways than one. Early reviews have praised Fire Emblem Engage‘s deep combat, while being unimpressed with the story and character interactions. Waypoint’s Renata Price describes it as a “tactically brilliant Saturday morning cartoon.” Fans of Three Houses, a game praised by many for its interesting narrative & character interactions, may be disappointed by this news. However, fans of the classic games can look forward to a return to a more tactical, less story-based game.
