Fire Emblem Engage Introduces The Binding Blade Protagonist, Your Boy, Roy

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, the emblem iteration of Roy was introduced.

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

Roy is a character originating as the protagonist of Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade. He’s a courageous and intelligent prince. As an Emblem, his offense and defense are balanced for the frontlines of battle. His Syncro Skill passively activates, letting him survive a fatal blow if his health beforehand was at least 30% full.

Further, like Corrin, his Engage Weapon reverses the affinities of the weapon triangle. Next, his Engage Skill temporarily amplifies his stats by increasing his level. Lastly, his Engage Attack is a horizontal maneuver covering three tiles, manifesting a barrier of fire halting enemy approaches. Those of the Dragon Battle Style can benefit from a three-tile increase of range as well, resulting in six tiles.

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.
