The power-hungry Emblian Empire is out to take total control of all worlds, and it is up to the brave Order of Heroes from the Askran Kingdom to put an end to their evil deeds. Team up with dozens of favorites from across the “Fire Emblem” series – as well as a few new faces – and call upon your skills of strategy and critical thinking in order to succeed!

In battle, tap and drag a character to any of the blue highlighted squares to move. If a hero’s equipped weapon is in range of an opponent, tap and drag them onto the enemy until the double sword icon appears to unleash an attack. The turn ends once all of the party have performed an action, whereupon the opposing party makes their move. End the battle by eliminating all adversaries!

▲ Tap “Danger Area” for hints of where not to move to, and “End Turn” to finish a turn early.

▲ After a certain number of turns are completed, special skills are automatically activated that dish out extra damage!

▲ Equipped characters appear on the home screen, who can be chatted to with a tap. Tapping the owl takes you to the mail screen, where you can collect gifts.

From the main menu, tap into “Battle” to view the different modes available, including the narrative-driven “Story Maps,” practice focused “Training Tower,” and online multiplayer “Arena Duels.” Battles across all modes earn you rewards and experience that can be used to level up characters and unlock new skills.

Call upon new heroes by tapping into “Summon” and using Orbs to unseal allies, from the charismatic “Odin” to the brooding “Raigh.” Each character comes with their own strengths and weaknesses, and can be organized into teams by tapping into the “Allies” screen. Mix and match heroes into up to five separate parties to help balance their abilities, and work to save the Askran Kingdom once and for all!

Dragons are undisputedly the fiercest and strongest creatures one could make enemies out of. As unfortunate as your village is because of the evil that constantly lurks around its edges, there is still hope, for you and a battalion of other heroes are determined to secure, protect and defeat! Harness your potential to fight and survive in countless missions that will undoubtedly test your limits.

In a mission, lead your hero to different parts of the battlefield so it can start attacking opponents. Release attacks mainly with your weapon, and wait for the right time to use your special skill. Oftentimes, special skills work best when you use them against the mission’s boss. After you win, redeem your rewards so you can start enjoying new weapons and costumes. If you are in the mood, you can also challenge a friend to duels in the PvP arena.

▲ Conquer smaller monsters so you can trudge through the map quickly, until you come face to face with dragons.

▲ Gain great rewards for completing event, weekly, daily, or continuous missions.

▲ Sword icons you earn after every battle allow you to continue fighting in advanced quests.
