Fire Emblem Engage Battle Animations Guide: How to Disable

The latest Fire Emblem title, Fire Emblem Engage, has some lengthy battle animations, and this can really get frustrating at times. Although they are extremely pretty and detailed, each animation can take quite a bit of time. Each individual character and Emblem have their own animations, showcasing their attacks each turn.

While cool at first, as you approach later battles in the game, this can make battles stretch on far longer than they would otherwise. Luckily, Intelligent Systems has added a toggle for you to turn these battle animations off any time. We’ve got you covered with how to disable battle animations in Fire Emblem Engage.

How to Turn Off Battle Animations in Fire Emblem Engage

Turning off battle animations in Engage is quite simple. If you want to turn this setting off, follow these steps below:

  • To access this setting, you’ll first want to head over to the menu. Press the + button anywhere in the game to access this.
  • Scroll down to the System menu. Select A on this menu to proceed.
  • Next, scroll down and select the Settings submenu. The setting we need to turn off is located in here.
  • At the top, you’ll see a setting titled “Combat Animations”. You want to check this to off instead of on.

That’s it! It really is that simple to turn off battle animations in Fire Emblem Engage. Doing this will really help battles speed up, with long animations going away in favor of quick damage numbers. If you’re a fan of the battle animations, it’s always an option to keep them. However, do keep in mind your battles might end up taking way longer.
