Fire Emblem Engage has been widely praised at launch, but it seems the day one update may have introduced one minor issue tied to the title’s cooperative multiplayer Relay Trials mode. As highlighted by Nintendo’s official customer support social media account, the gaming giant is aware of player reports and is “currently investigating” the problem.
As explained by Siliconera, the issue occurs when selecting “take over” after “random” in the Relay Trials. When selecting “take over” – it will come up with the current message “no data to take over”. Here’s a rough translation of Nintendo’s customer support tweet:
“We have received an inquiry about “There is no data that can be transferred” even if you select “Random” in “Transfer” in “Fire Emblem Engage”. We are currently investigating, so please wait for further information. We apologize for the inconvenience.”
『ファイアーエムブレム エンゲージ』の「繋戦の試練」にて、「『引き継ぐ』内の『ランダム』を選択しても『引き継げるデータがありません』と表示される」というお問い合わせをいただいています。現在調査を進めておりますので、今後のご案内をお待ちください。ご迷惑をおかけし申し訳ございません。— 任天堂サポート (@nintendo_cs) January 24, 2023
To minimise the likelihood of this issue, the best way to go about this apparently is to manually input a code when joining the Relay Trials mode. Here’s a bit more about this mode from our Nintendo Life review:
“Relay Trials see you tackle maps with other players in a co-op mode accessed via tickets earned in the main campaign. Battles here don’t have to be played in one sitting, and you can match up with friends or random players to jump into the fray in order to help out others who’ve had a turn and then put their game to one side. This mode also adds a new mechanic, with Entryway portals dotted around arenas to be opened up for other players to then spawn at when they take their turn.”
