Fire Emblem Engage – Emblem Introduction: Ike (Emblem of Radiance)

Fire Emblem Engage features various characters from past Fire Emblem games, who are called Emblems. They appear in the form of Emblem Rings that Units can equip in order to get a stats boost, but also gain access to special skills and abilities. And in this post, we’re going to take a look at Ike, who is known as the Emblem of Radiance!

Here’s a video showcasing this Emblem in action:

The video above also shows part of a scene where Ike is seen talking with Alear. He accepts her offer, and decides to help her in her quest.

Ike (voiced by Michihiko Hagi) is the renown leader of a band of mercenaries, whose battle skills are without pair. Ike’s attack power is already top-notch, but it increases even further as he takes damage. His endurance and defense are nothing to sneeze at either. The more the odds are stacked against him, the stronger Ike gets, which means he’s the man you need if you need to attract the attention of enemies!

His weapon, skills, and abilities are as follows:

  • Sync Skill: Brave Leader*. Boost defense and magic resistance whenever HP drops below 75%.
  • Engage Weapon: Hammer. Can Smash enemies and deals extra damage to armoured Units.
  • Engage Skill: Immovable*. Lowers damage received by 50% whenever evasion drops to 0. If a Dragon Unit is wearing Ike’s Emblem Ring, damage is lowered by an additional 10%.
  • Engage Attack: Conqueror ・Skies*. Boosts Defense for one turn, allowing the Unit to withstand the enemy’s attack, and automatically triggering a powerful ranged attack during the following turn. Also, Unit gets back some of the damage dealt to enemies as HP. With this powerful attack, you can send the Unit to deal with a group of enemies clustered in one spot and annihiliate them all in one fell swoop

*official English name TBC!

Fire Emblem Engage (Switch) comes out on January 20th worldwide.
