Fire Emblem Engage, the first big Nintendo Switch game of 2023
If it is a bit more suitable than Nintendo’s most popular franchises, and its new version is certainly less expected than the release of The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, the Fire Emblem license remains very important for the Kyoto company. Launched in 1990 with Fire Emblem: Ankoku Ryū to Hikari no Tsurugi on the Famicom, the Japanese version of NESthis legend was conceived by Intelligent System know several episodes for over a decade on Nintendo’s first two home consoles before landing gameboy advance in 2002, and finally reached the West in 2003. Aptly titled Fire Emblem in our lands, the first episode that appeared in the archipelago was released in the rest of the world in response to the international success of Super Smash Bros. Melee where two heroes of the legend introduced themselves: Marth and Roy.
From this portable opus, the second in the series at the time, all canonical Fire Emblem episodes have been released worldwide, from Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones (still on GBA) in 2004 to Fire Emblem: Three Houses, the first major part released on Switch in the summer of 2019, is still the best seller in the history of the saga. with more than 3.5 million copies sold worldwide. Thus, it confirms its growing popularity, after two sales records for the franchise previously established on the Nintendo 3DS by Fire Emblem: Awakening in 2012 (around 2.35 million) then Fire Emblem Fates in 2015 (around about 3.03 million) . Be the rotate from Fire Emblem works well for a so-called “niche” license, as evidenced by the bar of one million distributed units crossed by the musō Fire Emblem Warriors (2018) and Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes (2022). For all these reasons, Fire Emblem Engage is therefore expected in turn, especially on a console distributed in almost 120 million copies worldwide!
The game has leaked: be (very) careful with spoilers!
Unfortunately, and this happens all too often, Fire Emblem Engage couldn’t wait for its official release date to be played by eager players. Victim of a premature leak, the tactical-RPG from Intelligent Software is illegally available, leading some to work immediately to discover the continent of Elyos and all the contents of his four kingdoms. For these reasons, we can’t warn you enough if you’ve pre-ordered Fire Emblem Engage, and therefore you are waiting for Friday to start this new story like most players who want to finally get their hands on this new episode.
In fact, while it’s a safe bet that quite a few true Fire Emblem fans will intentionally ruin the surprise for their peers by sharing gameplay and scenario-related elements without prior warning, we are not safe from spoilers on the internet and therefore we urge you to be very careful, regardless of the social networks and discussion platforms you frequent. It’s a shame to show you plot (or gameplay) elements that are close to your heart so close to the goal, so be careful!
As a reminder, Fire Emblem Engage is expected for January 20, 2023 exclusively for Nintendo Switch, and received a score of 17/20 in JV.
