For the first time in the classic Fire Emblem RPG series, there is the option of multiplayer action over Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection, adding a whole new dimension of gameplay and strategic planning that can be shared with friends and fans of the series.
Using skill, tactical battle-planning and no small amount of magic, players must embark on a quest to destroy the resurrected dark dragon Medeus, who seeks to conquer the entire world.
One hundred years since Medeus was slain and the Kingdom Altea founded on the continent of Akaneia, Medeus is back, and it falls to exiled prince Marth to save the kingdom from ruin. Success for Marth and his comrades rests on finding his fatherís sacred sword, Falchion, and the Fire Emblem. Only when these are united in Marthís hands will he be able to destroy Medeus once and for all and win back the kingdom of Altea.
Turn-based gameplay challenges the playerís strategic thinking, with the nature of the terrain, the strength of enemy forces and the positioning of your own units all needing careful consideration.
