Fire Emblem Engage takes a turn away from the story-heavy style of the previous entry in the series, Three Houses. Engage focuses much more on combat, meaning that unlocking and recruiting the strongest emblems is important to lower the average play time, which rocks in at a big 45-60 hours. The long play time will come as no surprise to fans of Nintendo’s tactical RPG series, but with some familiar faces returning to the game in Fire Emblem Engage, players will be seeking out how to unlock all emblems, which are powerful characters that amplify your combat strength and bring some very cool abilities to the battlefield.
As well as this, the twelve emblem rings need to be collected to complete the story and bring safety to the region of Elyos. As the Divine Dragon, only the player can achieve this, so here’s how to collect all emblem rings in Fire Emblem Engage.
