The fate of the continent of Magvel is in your hands as you battle forces human and monstrous to rescue its five sacred stones and bring back peace to its citizens. The plot begins when the peaceful nation of Renais is attacked by its neighboring country, Grado. As the kingdom falls, the prince and princess flee, escaping to amass an army and save their land. Playing as twin royals, Princess Eirika and Prince Ephraim, players engage in classic Fire Emblem roleplay featuring tactical, turn-based combat. Throughout the course of the storyline, players will visit every nation on the continent, from Carcino to Rausten to Valni and beyond, all the while recruiting characters from each country. The game is sectioned by chapter and features an expansive host of warriors that can be both leveled up and evolved by exposing them to their chosen emblem. At a certain point in the plot, the storyline splits with one section following Ephraim while another follows Eirika. This gives the game replay value, ensuring that both paths are essential to understanding the full breadth of their adventure. Although Ephraim and Eirika's stories differ from chapter to chapter, their searches for weapons and warriors take them on romps through different sections of the world map, and you don't miss out on anything by choosing one over the other.
An epic adventure with several chapters of gameplay, it advances the world of Magvel for the die-hard fan while also offering complex and entertaining battles for all ages and styles of players who like strategy-based action games. The map is easy to maneuver, and the gaiden-style combat is easy and fun. Featuring only mild cartoon violence, this game is rated E for everyone. The fun isn't over when the world is saved. You can access expansive endgame dungeons like the Lagdou Tower that add another chapter to the adventure, bringing the player face to face with monsters and more than one mighty dragon. These dungeons are rewarded with special bonus characters not attainable through the main storyline, from the kings of the various nations to the boss of the game himself.
