Yes, Fire Emblem Engage is a mainline game in the Fire Emblem series.

Unlike spin-off titles such as Fire Emblem: Warriors or Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes, Fire Emblem Engage officially sits among with tactical RPG mainline titles of the series. The usual way to tell whether a Fire Emblem game is part of the main series is in its genre.

The comparative examples would be in the Fire Emblem Warriors games mentioned above. Whilst the mainline Fire Emblem games are strictly turn-based tactical RPGs, the Warriors titles are typically hack-and-slashers.

Another way to tell that Fire Emblem Engage is a mainline game is in its developer. The main Fire Emblem series was created by Intelligent Systems - the same developers as previous titles like Fire Emblem: Three Houses or Fire Emblem Awakening.

Comparatively, when looking at the Warriors games, you'll find the developer behind it is Omega Force, a different team. Since Fire Emblem Engage was developed by Intelligent Systems, it is definitely a mainline game.
