How soon can you jump in?

It's natural to be eager to find out how soon you can play any upcoming game. Fans of the Fire Emblem franchise are no different when it comes to the release of Engage. We know it releases on January 20, but what time of day? And can you manually change your system's time to play earlier?

When is the Fire Emblem Engage Release Time?

Some games release a game at a set universal time, while others go off of a more classic model of restricting releases by time zone. Nintendo has opted for the latter. Fire Emblem Engage will release on January 20, 2023, at 12am for each player's local time. According to your Nintendo account, the game will base on the midnight release schedule wherever you live.
