Lead your troops to victory

You’ll need to master the essentials of tactical warfare to survive in this total reimagining of Fire Emblem Gaiden—never before released in the West.

The elements of war

Each army offers a strategic mix of classes with diverse skill sets—and you must lead both into battle. Choose every move carefully throughout grid-based battles that grow ever more challenging.

New: Explore dungeons in 3D

In a series first, you can control Alm or Celica action-adventure style as they explore dungeons for loot, items, and enemies. Touch an enemy and a grid-based battle will begin.

Be sure to check your units’ fatigue levels—they may not fight as well if they’re tired.

Get stronger as you go

Once a character has enough experience on the battlefield, they can class-change by visiting a Mila Idol within each dungeon.
Heroes can only change to the next class in that line, but they can move up to the next level—making them even more lethal.

Here are a few of the many classes available in-game.
