The legendary tactical role playing series brings an exciting new chapter to Nintendo 3DS in Fire Emblem: Awakening.
Set in a world ruled over by two mighty dragons, dark forces begin to rise, threatening to destroy the kingdom of men – and leading you on an exciting adventure filled with battles packed with action, strategy and danger.
It is a dark time. Prince Chrom is doing what he can to stop the skirmishes between the kingdoms of Ylisse and Plegia turning into all-out war while a plague of undead soldiers known as The Risen infect the land. Chrom's fight for survival may be greater than he feared as he finds himself trapped between a war-hungry kingdom, an unimaginable evil and a masked stranger who claims to be a legendary figure from centuries past. but Chrom has his own personal militia known as the Shepherds. And he has you, a warrior with no memory of your past, to fight beside him. But as you're drawn further into the conflict, you'll experience events that will change the world forever...
Fire Emblem: Awakening builds on a mixture of elements from previous games in the series to offer an experience that both dedicated fans and newcomers to the series will enjoy. The traditional turn-based combat will need you to focus both your skill and strategy to complete stages successfully, while the new 3D visuals see each battle come to life like never before on Nintendo 3DS. Playing to the strength of your units is key, as positioning on the battlefield, the types of weapons used, the range of classes and even co-operative attacks all play a part in ensuring victory.
The more you have characters fight together in battle and interact, the closer their bond will grow; stronger bonds mean better co-operative abilities, so it's worth putting effort into having your characters get along. Outside of bonds, you'll also see your characters gain experience as they battle, increasing both their level and statistics, and a huge range of additional characters - covering a wide variety of different classes and weapon proficiencies - are just waiting to be recruited to your army. What's more, Fire Emblem: Awakening features multiple difficulty levels including Newcomer Mode, where heroes defeated on the battlefield can be brought back for later stages instead of being lost forever.
