Nintendo and Intelligent Systems are back with another look at Fire Emblem Engage, and today gives us new details on Corrin, who is voiced by Satomi Satou in the Japanese version, and the ‘Emblem of Fates’ ring alongside some gameplay snippets; check out all the details below (via Perfectly Nintendo).
- Sync Skill: Dragon Vein. With this, you can add various special effects to terrain. For example, a Flying Unit will be able to add the Aroma (official English name TBC!) effect, which is a Healing effect. The effect you get depends on the Fighting Style of the Unit wearing Corrin’s Emblem Ring. Dragon Units can select any effect!
- Engage Weapon: Dual Katana. This weapon “reverses” the usual Weapon Triangle system. Despite being a sword, it has the advantage against the Spear, but as a result, it’s weak against Axes.
- Engage Skill: Curse (official English name TBC!). Prevents the enemy located within 1 space from your Unit from moving when you’re on the offensive. Pretty handy when enemies are clustered in one place!
- Engage Attack: Torrential Roar. Attacks enemies on 3 spaces in front of your Unit, and gives terrain the “Puddle” effect (Evasion Down). If enemies are all lined up, use this powerful attack to not only hit them all at once, but also make it harder for them to counterattack!
The following video shows off Corrin talking to Alear.
During the Battle Preparation phase, you can change the position of allies on the battlefield. You can also check out information about the terrain, enemy abilities, and more. If you want to get the upper hand, make sure to check the entire map before jumping into battle!
Also, the “Visit” Command makes its comeback in Fire Emblem Engage. During battle, you will come across houses: if you go and warn the inhabitants of the incoming danger, they will reward you with gold and other items. To do so, move an ally to the glowing space in front of the house, and select the “Visit” Command. Be careful: if an enemy unit gets to the house first, they will destroy it!
