Fire Emblem Engage already works on Android thanks to Skyline


If you want to play Fire Emblem Engage but don’t have a Nintendo Switch, your solution can be found on Reddit, where a user shared their impressive emulation results in a post. Fire Emblem Engage Android runs at 60 frames per second.

Unfortunately, the gameplay shows some graphical artifacts that take up part of the screen. However, we are sure that with a little time and work, the game will be perfectly playable.

Fire Emblem Engage is the latest entry in the Fire Emblem franchise, released just four days ago on January 24. Like previous entries, this is a tactical, campaign-focused role-playing game that builds on the lore of previous games.

The phone behind the results

The Reddit user who posted the gameplay shared their phone model, and we’re not surprised to see that the phone in question is the Redmagic 7S Pro.

Although not the latest model, the Redmagic 7S Pro still packs powerful specs. Most notably, the Snapdragon 8+ chipset, which is most likely a contributing factor to the smooth performance of the emulator.

A few artifacts here and there

While the gameplay certainly looks promising, a few artifacts hold emulation back. The screen tears and bleeds quite often in every frame, taking up a good chunk of the top half of the screen. But this is nothing new.

If you’re familiar with new game emulations, you’ll be aware of graphical bugs and glitches appearing in new ports. But don’t worry – these are normally polished by the developer after a few weeks. The fully playable version of the game may be coming soon!

The fact that this emulation was done via Skyline gives us even more faith. The Skyline team is always on top of the Switch emulation scene, with frequent updates and improvements.
