Fire Emblem Engage may not have co-op but you can still play with others.

Fire Emblem Engage does not have co-op capabilities, but it does have a multiplayer mode, in the form of the Tower of Trials experience.

Tower of Trials is a multiplayer mode designed to give players the chance to join a squad together and fight other players or AIs. The squad can either be filled with fellow players, or you can choose to fight with AIs. That squad will be pitted against the AI version of other players’ squads, taking turns in a strategic battle.

That means it’s not a true co-op experience as you may expect, but a more asynchronous option that can lead to some fun tactical matchups as you trade off turns with other players.

Within the Tower of Trials, players can also set defences to create challenging combat scenarios for other players.

The Tower of Trials was announced through the Fire Emblem Twitter on December 27, 2022, and states, albeit through translation, that the mode encourages “cooperation with other online players and playing one map while taking turns.”

The base game will not have multiplayer or co-op capabilities, instead focusing on a single-player campaign. Instead, you’ll need to head over to the Tower of Trials to play with friends and others.
