Fire Emblem Engage: The results are in! Popularity poll breakdown via Nintendo Dream’s June 2023 issue

Nintendo Dream reveals who’s number one in all of Elyos

Back in February, Japanese magazine Nintendo Dream announced a character popularity poll for Fire Emblem Engage. After a two month wait, the final rankings have been published, and we’ve got the scoop on where everyone lands. Where did your favorites end up?

We’d like to give special thanks to Twitter user @mmmm7230, who graciously provided us with the top 25 characters and their placements.

The print magazine, out today, also contains a two-sided “Best Eleven” poster with many of the poll’s top characters, and included is part 2 of their developer interview with the Engage team. Part 1, originally published in last month’s issue, can be found transcribed in Japanese here.

Though there is ultimately no consequence of this poll’s results, we’re sure this information may be of interest to any curious to know how the cast of Engage has been received by players.
