When does Fire Emblem Engage take place?

It’s tough to truly know when Fire Emblem Engage takes place, but we do know that it takes place 1,000 years after a war between the citizens of Elyos and the Fell Dragon caused the Emblems to step in and imprison the Dragon.

However, now, after 1,000 years of slumber, the Fell Dragon is beginning to rise again, leaving Elyos in danger and the Divine Dragon back in action.

Where is Fire Emblem Engage set?

Fire Emblem Engage is set in the continent of Elyos, and the protagonists will primarily be located in Somniel.

Somniel is described as a paradise by publishers Nintendo and developers Intelligent Systems, with the description of the town exploring how it “hosts a variety of facilities and activities for the player to prepare for upcoming battles and strengthen bonds”, proving this will be your base of operations and the primary location of Fire Emblem Engage.
