Nintendo and Intelligent Systems are back with another look at Fire Emblem Engage, and today gives us details on Diamant, Alcryst, who are voiced by Junichi Suwabe and Nobuhiko Okamoto, respectively, and some details about the Kingdom of Brodia.
Diamant is the First Prince of the Kingdom of Brodia, and Alcryst’s older brother. He was raised to become the next King, and it appears he has earned the unwavering trust of his people. Diamant is said to be a simple if stubborn man with a serious personality. He has deep respect for his father, the current King. Diamant’s starting class is Lord. He’s the descendant of rulers who once guided their people. He wields the sword like no one else.
Alcryst is the Second Prince of the Kingdom of Brodia, and Diamant’s younger brother. He’s a fairly negative person with very little self-esteem. He often belittles himself by comparing himself to his more accomplished older brother. Despite this, he’s a fairly sociable fellow, and is a steadfast member of the royal family. Just like his older brother, Alcryst’ starting class is Lord. However, his weapon of choice is the bow, which allows him to hit enemies from afar.
The Kingdom of Brodia is a military state located to the northwest of the continent of Elyos. The country is known for its wealth and military might, and is ruled by King Morion (English name not official), who values pride and power above all else. It’s often at war with its neighbours, Elusia, a devout nation where people worship the Fell Dragon.
The following video shows a discussion between Diamant and Alear, and some gameplay footage for the newly introduced characters. It really shows just how imposing and dignified the future king of Brodia can be. Fortunately for Alear, he seems to be on friendly terms with the Kingdom of Firene! The video also shows Alcryst training with his brother Diamant, where we get to see his negative personality at work. He calls himself “Not Diamant of the Kingdom of Brodia”.
