It’s time to get in on the action as the recently released Fire Emblem Engage game comes to the manga world! Japanese video game company Nintendo announced on Friday that the latest installment in the long-running Fire Emblem franchise will be getting a manga adaptation. Artist Kazurō Kyō (Hime Doll!!) will be drawing the manga, the company revealed.
Launched only this January 2023, Fire Emblem Engage is a tactical role-playing game for the Nintendo Switch. The latest installment follows a brand-new protagonist, named Alear, and is set on the continent of Elyos.
Its main plot is described as follows:
In a war against the Fell Dragon, four kingdoms worked together with heroes from other worlds to seal away this great evil. One-thousand years later, this seal has weakened and the Fell Dragon is about to reawaken. As a Divine Dragon, use rich strategies and robust customization to meet your destiny—to collect Emblem Rings and bring peace back to the Continent of Elyos.
The game features 12 Emblem rings, which allow users to summon and fight alongside previous characters of the Fire Emblem series, like Marth, Celica, Roy and Corrin.
The upcoming manga adaptation will serialize in Shueisha’s Saikyō Jump magazine and on Shueisha’s Shonen Jump+ website and application. Shueisha will first publish a prologue on Feb 3, followed by the main serialization of the manga in both Saikyō Jump and on Shonen Jump+ on March 3.
