Now that Fire Emblem Engage is out in the wild, gamers may be questioning “what the hell do I have to do to get some lovin’ around here?” If you’re not combating each battle and in case you’re used to different Fire Emblem techniques, it may be simple to overlook the occasion that enables your toothpaste-haired champion to hook up with one of many homies. I’m right here to assist.
Players aware of previous Fire Emblems may assume reaching “S” assist rank with a personality provides you with the choice to romance them in Engage. However, there is no such thing as a “S” rank obtainable in the sport, which can lead gamers to consider “romancing” somebody isn’t potential in any respect. It is, nevertheless it works a bit in another way than the way you may count on.
For starters, the choice to “romance” a companion doesn’t unlock till comparatively late in the sport. The triggering occasion occurs in a paralogue that turns into obtainable shortly after the late-game plot twist that outcomes in Alear turning into an Emblem themself. As you gather the 12 Emblem rings, you’ll discover that some paralogues require that you just combat towards your Emblems to unlock their max bond degree. While you gained’t combat towards Alear, finishing their paralogue will web you the pact ring which you could give to any companion with an “A” rank, thus permitting you to “romance” them.
It’s additionally not fairly a straight-up “romance.” Alear is allowed to “bond” with characters no matter gender, however a few of these bonds might be romantic whereas others might be platonic. So whereas it’s potential for a male Alear to bond with, say, massive daddy thiccums Vander, since he’s one of many platonic choices, you’re gonna must rely by yourself headcanon to do the romantic heavy lifting.
I romanced the dancer Seadall, not for any actual attraction (my coronary heart eternally belongs to Claude Fire Emblem) however as a result of he was the cutest individual I had the very best rank with. Once you give the pact ring to your chosen, they’ll depart you with a pleasant memento on the desk in Alear’s chambers. I received a shawl. Seadall likes scarves.
