Fire Emblem Engage: Amiibo Rewards & how to use the Amiibo Gazebo
As a first-party Nintendo Switch game, it's perhaps unsurprising to hear that Fire Emblem Engage has full-blown amiibo support, allowing you to scan the wide range of collectible figurines on your controller or console and get various unique awards.
While the manner in which the amiibo Gazebo where you scan the figures functions quite similarly to how it did in Three Houses, Fire Emblem Engage nevertheless is different enough with its amiibo implementation and amiibo scanning rewards that it's worth a quick explainer - which is what we're here to deliver to you on this here page you clicked on to. I assume that's what you were after. On this page:
The amiibo Gazebo will unlock once you've completed a couple of chapters of the Fire Emblem Engage story, and from that point on you'll be able to access it any time you're hanging out in Somniel, your home base. Specifically, you can find the amiibo Gazebo near the Orchard fast travel point at the top-left of the floating island's map.
It's represented on the map by an icon that looks a little bit like the pawn piece on a Chess board, which is meant to represent an Amiibo sitting on its little plinth.
Once the amiibo Gazebo is available - the game will tell you if it is the first time you approach it - it's time to scan amiibo. All you need to do is open up the menu by pressing A to Examine the center of the Gazebo - and this pops up the amiibo scanning menu, which guides you through the process, which differs slightly depending on which configuration you're playing the Switch in and what controller you're using.
You can scan up to five amiibo every 24 real-world hours - limiting the amount of rewards you can rack up and preventing you from using it to break the game. Further, you can only scan each type of amiibo once a day - so to get the maximum rewards each day, you'll need five different amiibo.
Every time you scan an amiibo in Fire Emblem Engage, you'll earn various rewards that include materials, ingredients, and special tickets that let you unlock new nostalgic customization options to enjoy throughout the game. Specifically, it works as follows:
- Any non Fire Emblem amiibo scanned will reward you a random resource, such as cooking ingredients, consumable items, or weapon upgrade materials.
- Scanning Ryu from Street Fighter (via Smash Bros) got us Berries, for instance - while scanning Sephiroth (FF, via Smash) netted us a Resistance Tonic.
- This can which can be helpful especially early on before you net the Donation Rewards that increase the resources received from battles. Sadly, no gifts required as outlined in our Fire Emblem Engage Gift Guide drop this way.
- Every amiibo is compatible in this way.
- Fire Emblem amiibo scanned will give you Fashion Ticket & Music Ticket items, used at the amiibo Gazebo to redeem for special items.
- Fashion Tickets are redeemed to obtain special costumes for the protagonist based on the various Emblem Heroes in the game.
- Music Tickets are redeemed to unlock music from the classic Fire Emblem titles that each Emblem represents.
- Once all of the Fashion & Music Ticket items are unlocked, scanning Fire Emblem amiibo will instead reward random materials, gold, weapons, and Relay Tickets.
It's worth noting that you'll only able to redeem Fashion & Music Tickets for items that are related to characters and Emblems you've already unlocked. To unlock the 'Ike Style' for instance, you'll first need to have unlocked Ike. Check out our Emblem Ring Unlock List if you're wondering how and when each will unlock for you.
Unlike previous games, each amiibo is not tied to a specific unlock - which means that you can, for instance, scan a Chrom amiibo and use it to redeem the 'Celica Style' outfit, if you so wish. The amiibo simply give you the tickets - how you spend them is up to you.
