What to play ahead of Fire Emblem Engage?
The Fire Emblem games do not operate as sequels, with each taking place in its own universe and with its own cast of characters. You can pick up almost any of the recent Fire Emblem games to get an idea of Fire Emblem Engage, but we would recommend the most recent entries, either Fire Emblem Three Houses for the Nintendo Switch, Fire Emblem Awakening for the 3DS, or Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia for the Nintendo 3DS.
If you have played and enjoyed Fire Emblem Three Houses, don’t forget it actually has a sequel, in the form of the Koei Tecmo-developed Fire Emblem Three Hopes. This entry is a Musou-inspired game focusing on action, and follows the events of Three Houses in an alternative universe, showing many different aspects of the original story.
Ok gamers, hopefully, this helps you snag a bargain and ready yourself for the coming conflict. We’ll see you on the battlefield. However, if you need something to play today, be sure to check out our guide to the best Switch strategy games next.
