Fire Emblem Engage is set to bring a number of characters from the series' past back into the swing of battle, and one such returning hero is Celica.

Running up to the the game's release on January 20th, 2023, Nintendo has been revealing more information about each of the returning characters, with Celica taking the limelight today.

In a series of tweets from the game's official account, we have been provided with a brief overview of Celica's character (thanks to @SerenesForest for the translation):

The Emblem Celica (VA: Nao Tōyama), also known as the "Emblem of Echoes", is a princess and warrior priestess from a bountiful nation. A survivor of the Zofian royal family from the Outrealm continent of Valentia.

We also got a look at two different videos featuring the returning hero. The first shows her magic abilities in battle, while the second is a cutscene with the game's protagonist, Alear (for which you can find an English-subbed version from princereyson below).

Fire Emblem Engage will mark Celica's return to the franchise after previously appearing in Fire Emblem Gaiden and its 3DS remake Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia. She will be joining the likes of Marth, at whom we got a closer look at earlier this month.
