Fire Emblem Engage has been widely praised at launch, but it appears that the day one update may have introduced a minor issue related to the title’s cooperative multiplayer Relay Trials. As highlighted by Nintendo’s official customer support social media account, the gaming giant is aware of player reports and is “currently investigating” the issue.
As Siliconera explained, the problem occurs when selecting “take control” after “random” in relay events. Selecting “take over” will display the current message “no data to take over”. Here’s a rough translation of Nintendo’s customer support tweet:
“We received a query about ‘No data can be transferred’ even if you select ‘Random’ under ‘Transfer’ in ‘Fire Emblem Engage’. We are currently investigating, so please wait for more information. We apologize for the inconvenience.”
To minimize the likelihood of this issue, apparently the best way to go is to manually enter a code when joining relay mode. Here’s a bit more about this mode from our Nintendo Life review:
“Tag Tag Battles allow you to take on maps with other players in a co-op mode accessed through tickets earned in the main campaign. Battles here don’t have to be played all at once, and you can pair up with friends or players random players to jump into the fray to help others who have had a turn and then put their game aside.This mode also adds a new mechanic, with entrance portals dotted around the arenas opening up for other players to spawn in when they take their turn.”
