There was a time in video games when having your characters talk through text was a big deal or when you could hear their shouts and cries and think, “that’s so advanced!” Fast forward to modern times, and having voice acting in a video is pretty much a necessity, especially if you’re doing genres like RPGs. Fire Emblem Engage is the latest entry in the beloved franchise, albeit a franchise that didn’t have voice acting in full until very recently. Thankfully, the new game has a myriad of voices that give the characters life and personality, and we’re here to show off some of them.
For whatever reason, Nintendo was very quiet about the voice acting in the game outside of showing off the voices in the trailers for the title. But once the game launched, the voice actors swarmed to Twitter to discuss how they were in the game! Here are some of the posts they made:
Brief pause here. If you recognize that last name, it’s because that’s the voice of Izuku Midoriya in My Hero Academia! Talk about getting a big name to voice a character!
There’s more where that came from, showcasing how happy the cast is to be a part of the title. It’s nice to see the voice cast coming alive online to praise and market the game, as fans want this to be successful. Hopefully, you’ll go into the game and enjoy their voices because they put a lot of work into the title to make it special.
It’s very poetic that the game features a large cast of great characters because Fire Emblem Engage brings in new and familiar faces to help save the world. Remember, the title brings in the Lords and main characters of past games to help Alear and their friends, and many of those past characters got their voice actors from the mobile game from the series where they were also featured.
Furthermore, the title features numerous cutscenes that are incredibly stylish, and thus their voice acting is on full display.
The title focuses on the Divine Dragon Alear, who awakens from a 1000-year slumber when the Fell Dragon Sombron emerges from its sleep. After a tragedy occurs not long after their return, Alear must rally the other nations of Lythos and collect all twelve Emblem Rings so that they can put Sombron down for good.
Fire Emblem Engage features the beloved tactical gameplay the series is known for but adds new twists, so don’t be afraid to try it.
