    Nintendo and Intelligent Systems revealed new details about Fire Emblem Engage and Leif, the “Emblem of Genealogy” and protagonist of Fire Emblem: Thracia 776.

    Leif is a playable character in Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War and an Emblem in Fire Emblem Engage. He’s the cousin of Seliph, who is the hero of the Holy War and the son of Sigurd. Leif carries the bloodline of two holy warriors.

    As a holy Emblem, Leif is a well-rounded warrior who can handle any opponent despite a potential disadvantage in the weapon triangle. In fact, his most powerful ability makes use of swords, lances, axes, and bows. Any unit may take advantage of his powerful Emblem Ring.

    Here’s an overview of Leif’s Emblem Ring abilities via Perfectly Nintendo (official English names pending):

    • Sync Skill: Vital Point Shift – Reduces damage taken from enemies when weapon affinity is favorable.
    • Engage Weapon: Killer Axe – A powerful axe with increased crit rate.
    • Engage Skill: Adaptability – Automatically switches to a weapon that gives you the advantage over the enemy’s when under attack. For example, switches to a spear against a sword user, or a sword against an axe user. Also, Unit will always be able to counter regardless of range.
    • Engage Attack: Tetratrick – Allows the Unit to unleash a flurry of attacks using swords, spears, axes, and bows, which has a high Break rate. Units with the “Qigong” Fighting Style are guaranteed to deal the Break status regardless of the enemy’s weapon type.

    Lastly, Fire Emblem Engage launches January 20, 2023 for Nintendo Switch.
