In a war against the Fell Dragon, four kingdoms worked together with heroes from other worlds to seal away this great evil. One-thousand years later, this seal has weakened and the Fell Dragon is about to reawaken. As a Divine Dragon, use rich strategies and robust customization to meet your destiny—to collect Emblem Rings and bring peace back to the Continent of Elyos.

Team up with iconic heroes from past Fire Emblem games

Summon valiant heroes like Marth and Celica with the power of Emblem Rings and add their power to yours in this brand-new Fire Emblem story. Aside from merging appearances, Engaging lets you inherit weapons, skills, and more from these battle-tested legends. The turn-based, tactical battle system returns with a fresh cast of characters you can customize and Engage to carefully craft your strategy.


Fire Emblem Engage is set on a continent called Elyos. One thousand years before the events of the game, the four kingdoms of Elyos worked together alongside the spirits of warriors from other worlds called Emblems to seal away a Fell Dragon. When the protagonist, a Divine Dragon, awakes in the present day, they and their allies fight to gather the twelve Emblem Rings once again and prevent the Fell Dragon from returning to the world.[1]


The game features a similar tactical gameplay system to previous Fire Emblem titles, with players moving characters across a grid-based map to battle against enemies. New to Fire Emblem Engage are items called "Emblem Rings", which, when equipped, allow units to use the abilities of previous Fire Emblem protagonists.

Similar to Fire Emblem: Three Houses, Fire Emblem Engage also features free-roaming overworld segments, allowing players to prepare for upcoming battles and interact with other characters.[1]


Fire Emblem Engage was the top-selling title on the week of its release in Japan according to Famitsu, selling approximately 144,558 copies.[3]
