Every Fire Emblem game introduces new characters.
Fire Emblem Engage featured Elyos and a new character, Alear
Engage will feature new characters like Alear and returning favourites like Marth and Lucina.
The characters in Engage can use magical rings with Emblems to call a hero from the past.
The Hero acts like a Stand from JoJo's Bizarre Adventure. Emblems can fight with or boost their wielder in battle.
Fire Emblems have several playable characters.
Each weapon and class has strengths and drawbacks
Mage is strong against heavy armour
Permadeath makes Fire Emblem's rosters enormous.
A unit perishes when it dies in battle. Fire Emblem Awakening makes permadeath optional.
