Fire Emblem Engage – Emblem Introduction: Roy (Emblem of Binding)

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 Roy, who is known as the Emblem of Binding!

Here’s a video showcasing this Emblem in action:

The video above also shows part of a scene where Roy is seen talking with Diamant. Roy pledges to assist him and his allies.

Roy (voiced by Jun Fukuyama in Japanese) is a Lord known for his bravery and intelligence. His skills are said to rival those of a general.

As an Emblem, Roy possesses an excellent balance between offense and defense: he’s tough enough that enemies cannot defeat him in a single hit, and he’s strong enough to clear out entire groups of enemies on his own. Roy is a vanguard warrior, so don’t go and put him at the rear: it’s on the frontlines that he will truly shine!

His weapon, skills, and abilities are as follows:

  • Sync Skill: Endurance (official English name TBC!): if the Unit has at least 30% HP left, they will be able to withstand any attack, no matter how powerful.
  • Engage Weapon: Lance Buster (official English name TBC!): reverses the weapon triangle, allowing you to deal extra damage (and even inflict the Break status) to enemy units wielding lances.
  • Engage Skill: Transcendence (official English name TBC!): allows you to temporarily level up the Unit, greatly strengthening their abilities and stats.
  • Engage Attack: Fiery Dance of the Crimson Lion (official English name TBC!): unleashes a powerful attack on the 3 spaces in front of the Unit, generating flames that also hinder movement. When a Dragon Unit is equipping Roy’s Ring, that attack’s range is increased by 3 spaces.

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