(Cutscene: "Two Swords")

Azura (singing, as she descends into the lake): You are the ocean's gray waves, destined to seek ♪
Life beyond the shore, just out of reach
Yet the waters ever change, flowing like time ♪
The path is yours to climb

(scene changes; cut to Xander leading Nohrian troops in battle; Ryoma rushes into battle, felling a soldier along the way with Raijinto, before jumping on even more soldiers' heads and cutting down several more in one swing)

Ryoma: Nohrian general! You face the high prince of Hoshido, Ryoma! I challenge you to single combat!
Xander: I will accept your challenge, "high prince". But I'm no general. I am crown prince Xander of Nohr! (readies his horse to charge at Ryoma; it leaps from the cliff as Xander attacks and kills Hoshidan soldiers with Siegfried en route to Ryoma)

(both princes charge towards each other; cutscene ends as both are about to attack with their swords)

Hinoka: Come on, Corrin! We've got work to do!
(Fighter attacks Corrin. Corrin misses. Hinoka blocks the Fighter's second attack.)
Hinoka: Corrin, what's the matter with you? You seem distracted... If you're worried, don't be. All your siblings are here with you. The Nohrians don't stand a chance!


(Turn 1 player phase, when selecting Corrin)

Hinoka: Ready to attack?

(Turn 1 enemy phase, Xander attacks Ryoma)

Ryoma: I demand to know why you Nohrian dogs are invading Hoshido! Was that cowardly attack on my people your doing as well, princeling?
Xander: ...I have nothing to say to you. Surrender now. If you refuse... you die here.

(scene changes to Camilla, Leo, and Elise)

Elise: Oh, no! The bridge collapsed! How can we help our <brother/sister> now?
Camilla: Not to worry, Elise. This royal blood in our veins is still good for something!
Leo: Have you spotted a Dragon Vein, Camilla?
Camilla: You know me too well, dear little brother!

(Camilla activates the Dragon Vein, drying out the river)

Elise: Yaaay, it worked! The river dried up!
Camilla: I would never let you down, darling. Now, everyone follow me.
Leo: Elise, you're not ready for the front lines. Stay back. Camilla and I will take care of the Hoshidans.

(Camilla and Leo move closer to the Hoshidan forces, while Elise stays behind)

(scene changes to Hinoka)

Hinoka: The Nohrian army used a Dragon Vein to dry up the river! But I thought only royals held that power...
Takumi: Yeah, which means there must be some real big shots over there. Suits me just fine. I've always wanted to use a Nohrian royal for target practice!
Hinoka: Stay focused, Corrin. The Nohrians brought their heavy hitters this time.

(Hans enters from the left with reinforcements)

Hans: Listen up, cannon fodder! We have a direct order from King Garon. He says kill 'em all!

(Turn 1 ally phase)

Hinoka: Dammit, their reinforcements have arrived! I'll go scout out how many there are. Takumi, Sakura, stay with Corrin.
Takumi: Understood.
Sakura: Y-yes. Good idea.
Takumi: Hang in there, Corrin. The Nohrian royals are no pushovers... We'll have to work together to beat them. As the eldest, I guess you're in charge. Tell me what to do and I'll do it.
Sakura: Are you hurt, Corrin!? Here, let me heal your wounds! (heals the damage the Fighter inflicted on Corrin on the previous turn)

(Yukimura enters from the right with reinforcements)

Yukimura: Comrades! Do not let them cross this line. We must defend Hoshido!

(Turn 2 player phase; an enemy Lancer appears near Corrin)

Sakura: Oh n-no! An enemy!
Takumi: It's an ambush! Sakura, stay back. You aren't equipped to fight.
Hinoka: Takumi! Corrin! I'm counting on you two. Work together to defeat that soldier!

(When selecting Takumi)

Takumi: Listen, here's how we're gonna do this! With my bow, I can shoot this one from here. I'll soften him up, and then you can jump in and finish him off. Got it?

(When selecting Corrin)

Sakura: Be careful, Corrin!


(If the Lancer was defeated)

Hinoka: Corrin, Takumi, good work fighting off that ambush.
Sakura: You were amazing, Corrin.
Takumi: That went well. Probably because SOMEONE gave you good advice. ...And you're welcome, by the way.
Hinoka: No time to talk! Let's see how Ryoma's doing.

(If the Lancer was not defeated)

Hinoka: The enemy is still upon us, but we have bigger fish to fry. We need to retreat. Quickly, to Ryoma!

(scene changes)

Hinoka: Ryoma, are you all right?
Ryoma: I'll be fine. I'm glad to see you're all safe. Enemy reinforcements are headed this way. I want you to get rid of them. Corrin, I'm counting on you to keep Hinoka and the others safe.
Xander: Corrin! Thank heavens we found you, and that you're alive and well. Quickly, come join us! Your family has come to take you home where you belong.
Ryoma: Quiet, Nohrian filth! Corrin is my <brother/sister> and a <prince/princess> of Hoshido!
Xander: On the contrary, Corrin is MY <brother/sister> and a <prince/princess> of Nohr!
Camilla: Corrin! I was so worried about you. Don't ever wander away from me again!
Leo: I'm glad you're OK, Corrin. You must have the devil's own luck!
Elise: Yaaay! We got our <brother/sister> back!
Hinoka: Nohrian scum! First you kidnap <him/her>, now you lie to <him/her>?! Corrin is MY <brother/sister>, not yours!
Camilla: You are mistaken. Corrin is my sweet little <brother/sister>. You may not have <him/her>.
Ryoma: Don't be fooled by their words. You belong with your true family in Hoshido!
Xander: We have loved you and raised you since you were a child. Come home, little <prince/princess>. We can live as a family once more!
Ryoma: Come home to Hoshido, Corrin!
Xander: No, Corrin! Nohr is your home!

(scene fades to white, as a voice calls out–"Wake up!")
