Long ago, the continent of Archanea was invaded by the Dolhr Empire, led by the Shadow Dragon, Medeus, and the people lived in fear and despair. However... a miracle occurred. Anri, a youth from Altea, slew the Shadow Dragon using Falchion, The Blade of Light. The Kingdom of Archanea was restored and the world entered an age of peace. But 100 years later... Medeus was resurrected. He joined forces with the Dark Sorcerer Gharnef, who shared his ambitions of ruling the world, and launched an attack on Archanea. Archanea was defeated by Grust's General Camus, and, aside from Princess Nyna, the royal family was wiped out. Cornelius, the king of Altea and successor of the heroic Anri, left to battle Medeus, with the Falchion in hand. Meanwhile, Cornelius's only son and the prince of Altea, Marth, awaits his father's return as he passes his days with his martial arts training not knowing that Gra had betrayed Altea. Gra soldiers tried to take Marth captive. They were unsuccessful and, seemingly at the cost of the life of Frey, Marth escaped to Talys, a small island kingdom that was allied to Altea. After staying at Talys for several years, during which General Camus helped Nyna escape Archanea for Aurelis, Marth set out to reclaim his kingdom and slay Medeus. When Marth set out he first went to Aurelis to free the war torn country. After a vicious battle Marth set Aurelis free and made a valuable ally in Hardin, the younger brother of Aurelis' king.
Game play is similar to the rest of the Fire Emblem series with a bird-eye view of the grid-format map. You can move the character either using the D-Pad and select using A, B, or X or you can tap on the touch screen using the stylus.
