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!
