A prologue for the manga adaptation of the game Fire Emblem Engage is scheduled to release on 3 February 2023, according to a recent blog post on the official website of Nintendo Japan.
The manga will be released in the Saikyo Jump magazine, which is known for publishing spin-offs from big IPs like the Team-Up Missions series from My Hero Academia. The Fire Emblem Engage manga will release chapters every month starting on 3 March 2023, following the prologue’s release in February. Kazurou Kyou, well known for their work on the manga Hime-dol, will serve as the series’ creator.
Through Nintendo’s post, some manga illustrations have been shared, and they reveal that the adaptation will include the lead character Alear in the male version. The first three chapters of the manga will always be free to read on Shonen Jump Plus. The subsequent chapters will only be free for three weeks, so if readers can’t read a chapter in that time frame, they’ll need to subscribe in order to read it. It is currently unknown how many chapters the manga will have.
