Two kingdoms are on the brink of war – and you must decide whose side to take in Fire Emblem Fates for Nintendo 3DS family systems. As a Hoshidan prince raised by Nohrian royals, you’re torn between two families. The path you choose determines the fate that awaits you and the army you lead. Command them with expert precision and form stronger relationships in this ambitious turn-based strategy game.
Choose your path
Fire Emblem Fates comes in two versions, each with their own story to tell. Join Hoshido in Fire Emblem Fates: Birthright, or fight alongside Nohr in Fire Emblem Fates: Conquest. Later on, you can explore the depth of the story in a third path, available to purchase as add-on content – Fire Emblem Fates: Revelation. After selecting your path, you can then choose to purchase the other story paths as downloadable content from Nintendo eShop.*
In Nintendo eShop on Nintendo 3DS, the game is simply known as Fire Emblem Fates. At a certain point of the game you will have to choose your story path, determining which version of the game you own.
Lead your army to victory
For the first time ever, your customised avatar is the main hero. Guide your army through challenging turn-based battles, and devise your plan of attack based on your allies' classes, weapons and support levels. Each unit and weapon has strengths and weaknesses that you must balance against the foes they face. Partner your allies on the battlefield so they can support one another in combat. Building relationships is key – the closer your allies become, the better they’ll fight together.
Build your home base
With the new castle feature, you can create a home away from home for your army. Shop at weapon and armour shops, get new accessories and practise your strategy by fending off invasions. By adding new buildings and features to your castle as you go, you can build your homestead as you see fit. Players you encounter via StreetPass will also show up in castle's Travelers' Plaza, giving you the chance to meet their StreetPass teams in battle!
Battle other players
When you're not fighting off Nohrian or Hoshidan soldiers – or both! – put your skills to the test against real-life opponents! Test your tactics against friends locally with Local Play, or take the battle online* against friends or randomly matched players.
You can add heroes to your game with amiibo
If you tap compatible amiibo (sold separately), fan-favourite Fire Emblem heroes will appear in your castle! You'll receive special items the first two times you tap in an amiibo character, and get to challenge the character to battle on the third time. If you defeat them, they may even join your army!

Who doesn’t like adventure? Exactly, that’s what we thought. Adventure games are usually full of excitement, mystery, exploration and multiple objectives. Games which also have a lot of action going on are called action-adventure, but there also some pretty good survival horrors out there to grab… if you dare!
This genre is perfect for people who like to dress up as Napoleon on parties, for the ones that use skilful thinking and planning to achieve victory in on -and offline battles. You usually have two subgenres: Real-time, where you’ll need to think fast, and turn-based, where you take turns for every move.
