Nintendo Japan have dropped a new trailer for their upcoming fantasy RPG Fire Emblem Engage. The video shows off the strategic gameplay that the game will have to offer as well as the magical mechanic known as “Emblem Rings”.

This mechanic allows you to infuse your skills and abilities with the spirit of other Fire Emblem heroes. Once activated, the Emblem Ring expands upon, boosts, and enhances certain abilities, as you take on combat arts and skills of your chosen Emblem Ring. It is a similar mechanic to the one seen in Persona mechanic, except instead of Pixie or Nekomata, we have Celica or Byleth.

As you grow alongside your chosen Fire Emblem ring, you will be inheriting weapons, skills, and spells from this roster of classic characters, as you build up overdrive abilities and all-new ultimate attacks, defined by the classic characters you have chosen to grow alongside. Six rings are featured in this trailer (Sigurd, Celica, Corrin, Lyn, Byleth, and Marth) but there could be more rings to be discovered, (or purchased), as the quest continues.

Fire Emblem Engage is coming to Nintendo Switch on January 20, 2023. You can check out the trailer below.
