Fire Emblem Engage Introduces Solm Prince Fogato & Elusia Princess Hortensia

The official Japanese Fire Emblem Twitter account has been introducing new characters for the recently announced Fire Emblem Engage, alongside sharing new gameplay clips. Today, characters Fogato and Hortensia were presented.

NOTE: Some names and terms might differ in the official English localization.

Fogato is the younger brother of the previously introduced Timerra, making him the first prince of Solm. Due to this Kingdom embracing a matriarchial system, meaning a woman is the head of royalty, he has enjoyed considerably more freedom than his sister.

He’s described as optimistic and mellow and appears to be traveling around the country to protect his people better. Like Timerra, his initial class is also Vigilante; he wields a bow while horse riding, enabling exceptional agility and range.

Hortensia, on the other hand, is the second princess of the Elusia, as well as the younger sister of the previously introduced Ivy. She possesses an undeniable love for those she holds dear, such as her family, and she’s described as innocent yet self-centered.

Her father, the King, has ordered her to rob Alear of their Emblem Rings. Like Ivy, her initial class is Tamer, and she attacks enemies with magic and staves while riding atop a pegasus. Further regarding staves, their usages support allies by restoring their allies or obstructing the paths of foes. However, their utility is limited.

Fogato and Hortensia have both received a gameplay and conversation clip, viewable below:

Fire Emblem Engage is releasing for Nintendo Switch on January 20, 2023.

This game follows the new protagonist Alear after their mother, Lumiere, seemingly perishes and imparts them with the mission of utilizing special rings to bring peace to the world.

These rings summon notable heroes from other Fire Emblem titles, including fan favorites such as Lyn, Corrin, Marth, and Byleth. And aside from granting evident gameplay benefits and alterations, they also converse with the new Engage characters, acting as vehicles for potential growth.
