Nintendo recently revealed new details about the Fire Emblem Engage bulletin board and its uses.
In Fire Emblem Awakening, there is a central player hub called Somnel, a flying fortress. In this hub, players are able to perform various activities such as upgrading, purchasing equipment, and more. Bulletin board was introduced today. According to Translation of Siliconra, this area allows players to access various features or check achievements. It’s also that they can do a new activity that previous Fire Emblems games haven’t done yet: invest.
Players are able to invest money in various countries in the lands of Eleusis. After achieving a certain level, they will receive gifts of gratitude, which can include ingredients, weapon materials and more. Fighting in countries with higher investment levels will give players more gold and experience. They can even encounter very rare enemies that can yield some rare weapons and equipment.
In addition to investing, the bulletin board allows players to teleport around the hub. This can be accessed with the main menu, but the bulletin board has different options to use.
Players can check their achievements and also see the requirements they need to uncover. Unlocking these achievements will earn them Bond Shards. No word yet on how they might use the Bond Shards.
Fire Emblem Engage is currently in development and will be released on January 20, 2023 on Nintendo Switch.
