Product Details:

This latest entry in the series takes place in the continent of Magi Varl. Demons once populated the continent, but mankind gained piece by sealing the evil forces with five magic stones. Time passed, and the stones became the heirlooms of royal families whose kingdoms divide the present-day continent. The story of Seima no Kouseki begins as the most powerful of these kingdoms, the Grad Empire, begins to invade the remainder of Magi Varl. The Lunes Kingdom, a neighboring kingdom to the Grad Empire, incurs a sudden attack against which it cannot defend, and begins loosing its territory. The Grad Empire army reaches the Lunes Kingdom royal city and the Lunes Kingdom falls. Battles feature submaps which you'll be able to enter and leave at will and there is a new class change system that allows players to select from two upper level classes when the time comes to upgrade.

The game takes place in a series of strategic battles. You must navigate your pieces across the battle map, engaging and eliminating enemy units. Each map has a different objective. Once you beat the map, you return to an overview of the whole continent, and you can choose the path you follow to your next battle. Special events open up branches in the storyline, allowing the player to choose between following Ephraim's quest or Eirika's quest, each of which has its own unique events.

As with the previous Fire Emblem, there are tons of unique character classes in the game: Each character has a unique set of skills, shaping the way in which you play the game. You can decide which characters to use, giving you more control over your strategic approach. This game includes brand-new character classes and introduces a new way of changing your character classes, opening up new strategic possibilities: players can choose how to develop their characters and what types of units to focus on. New units include the axe-wielding great knight, the summoner, who can call monsters into battle, and the mage knight, who can use both weapons and magic, and many more. Additionally, for the first time, Fire Emblem features some traditional fantasy monsters, from skeletons to zombies, from gargoyles to gorgons - these monsters generate new challenges for experienced players.

Taking a cue from traditional role-playing games, this installment of Fire Emblem gives players the opportunity to gain experience and build their units' levels endlessly by fighting in new monster battles. As a result, the game not only gives new players the opportunity to practice and improve, but also gives advanced players the chance to develop their characters to suit their playing styles. This feature gives players of this Fire Emblem much more flexibility in developing their units.

Finally, Fire Emblem contains a new "Guide" that contains a glossary of terms and explanation of game commands and features. Players can review this information at any time.
