After players complete the Fell Xenologue DLC in Fire Emblem Engage, Nintendo noted they will be able to use their new characters in the main story. As a reminder, the Fell Xenologue chapters will not take place in the Elyos we are familiar with. Not only will you be able to recruit them into your army, they will also appear in Somniel and act like other units.
Somniel is the main hub of Fire Emblem Engage. You will be able to gift your characters items or speak with them. If you wish, you can also gift them new accessories or outfits that they will wear. This means that characters such as Lady Nel and Nil, who will be guest characters in the Fire Emblem Engage Fell Xenologue, will be at the mercy of your fashion sense. The official Twitter account has not yet clarified whether or not you will need to complete a particular chapter in the main story yet in order to access the DLC units.
The Fell Xenologue DLC will be part of Wave 4 of the Fire Emblem Engage Expansion Pass. You will be able to play as the Four Hounds (or the Four Winds). Your units will have their own starting levels and classes separate from however you’ve built them in-game. You will be able to level them up though as normal as you progress through the maps.
Fire Emblem Engage is available on the Nintendo Switch. The Fell Xenologue DLC will come out on April 5, 2023.
