An official vocal CD containing some of the tracks from Fire Emblem Engage is set to release in Japan on 15th March. We'd hesitate to go as far as to call this one an 'album' since there are only two of the game's tracks on there, but it boosts the Fire Emblem collection all the same, we suppose...
Confirmed in a tweet from the official @FireEmblemJP Twitter account, the 'Special Vocal Edition' CD will contain the full renditions of the game's opening and closing numbers ('Emblem Engage!' by RYO and 'Fiery Bonds' by Rainy) and will also come with a Blu-Ray disk for some bonus content. There are also 26 character art sheets included with the CD to personalise the case.
The CD is currently available to pre-order from various outlets including Amazon Japan for ¥2,750 (around £17 / $21), where international shipping is available — though bear in mind that these costs will come separately.
If you are more inclined to listen to these tracks digitally (and we don't blame you) then you will be pleased to hear that the opening number is available to download from today (1st February) with the closing tracking getting its online release in two weeks time on 15th February.

$21 for a single? I wouldn't have paid that in the heyday of tapes and CDs.
I give it a few days before you can search for the track online and find it available for download free, ripped from the CD. The only way to enjoy music for me.
@Browny : That sort of pricing for a single isn't common, but to be fair, this is a CD + Blu-ray set, though the amount of content you get for your buck is pretty dismal (and a complete waste of a Blu-ray for what I assume are a mere two pre-rendered videos from the game).
I'll hold out for the complete OST set, which usually comes in at a much more reasonable AU$70 or so for a multi-disc set (and sometimes a data DVD with supplementary material).
I wait for whenever the full OST is released and buy that. Hope it comes with a music box like Three Houses did. Pretty standard price for this CD/blu ray though.
Here come a bunch of people who've never bought music from Japan before being shocked about the price.
Anyway, home streaming servers were made for Nintendo soundtracks. Plex and Jellyfin are free, and can run off just about any computer including a raspberry pi.
Does anyone know who the singer is in the English opening theme to Engage? Been trying to find that out with no luck.
"I give it a few days before you can search for the track online and find it available for download free, ripped from the CD. The only way to enjoy music for me."
This is why musicians are killing themselves in droves. We need to go back to dial-up internet.
Kind of tempted, but I'd much prefer the full OST over only two tracks and all those bonuses.
@Nua I apologize if you've already found it out but just in case you haven't, the vocalist is Barry Bach.
@Jayesbe Thank you! I hadn't found the answer yet!
@Nua You're super welcome, I'm happy I could be helpful!^^
