One of the returning characters in the upcoming release Fire Emblem Engage is Marth. This character originally debuted in 1990 and has made multiple appearances since then even outside of the series. In the new mainline Fire Emblem, Marth returns as a legendary hero.

In the lead-up to the game's Switch release earlier this year, Nintendo has been publishing more information about each of the characters. Here is a closer look at Marth, along with a description:

"The Emblem Marth (VA: Hikaru Midorikawa), also known as the "Emblem of Beginnings" is a hero among heroes who's extremely noble and charismatic. A prince of Altea, from the outrealm continent of Archanea.

"The Emblem Marth is an ace sword-wielder; when characters equip his ring, they're more likely to avoid enemy attacks."

Here's some more footage of the character in motion and in combat alongside the new protagonist Alear:

And here's Nintendo's official story description for Fire Emblem Engage:

"In a war against the Fell Dragon, four kingdoms worked together with heroes from other worlds to seal away this great evil. One thousand years later, this seal has weakened and the Fell Dragon is about to reawaken. As a Divine Dragon, use rich strategies and robust customization to meet your destiny – to collect Emblem Rings scattered across the world and bring peace back to the Continent of Elyos. Summon and fight alongside legendary heroes from past Fire Emblem games, like Marth and Celica, and add their power to yours in this new story.
