Is Fire Emblem Engage a Spin-off or Mainline title? 

If you are sitting around wondering if Fire Emblem Engage is a spin-off or mainline title or not, it's unknown.

Overall, based on everything we have seen from game trailers, it does appear Fire Emblem Engage is a mainline title. The best evidence for this claim is that Engage features a turn-based title format for combat/battles. All previous Mainline games feature a similar format, so we feel it's safe to assume Fire Emblem Engage is a Mainline title. Another factor that seems to support Fire Emblem Engage being mainline is that characters from previous Mainline titles show up at points in the game.
