The story takes place on the continent of Magvel, as the southernmost country, Grado, attacks Renais. Renais had been allies with Grado for years, and was caught completely off guard. The game itself starts with Renais' princess, Eirika, fleeing from her castle as it is overrun. She then goes off in her search for her brother Ephraim, and her childhood [[UnluckyChildhoodFriend friend]], Grado Prince Lyon in hopes of finding out why Grado attacked, and how to stop the war.

The eighth ''Franchise/FireEmblem'' game, and the only completely self-contained story; no other ''FireEmblem'' media takes place in the universe of this game.

The game shares some mechanics not seen since ''[[FireEmblemAkaneia Fire Emblem Gaiden]]'', the biggest of which is the ability to traverse the world map. Instead of going to the next story point immediately, the player can fight the monsters roaming the map, or can visit monster-infested areas. This allows for [[LevelGrinding easy grinding]]. Additionally it has a unique branching class tree, giving almost every unit multiple class options for promotion.

** This is pretty much standard for Paladins in the Fire Emblem series. They are very powerful in the beginning or when they join you, then slowly become more balanced with the rest of the party.

* EmergencyWeapon: Averted in gameplay (as per Fire Emblem usual, empty-handed units cannot attack) but present in a different way. The battle setup screen gives access to an armory that sells the most basic weapons and tomes, making it that much harder to save yourself into an unwinnable situation.

* LevelGrinding: The primary reason fans dislike this one, as every other game (bar Gaiden) has only Arena Abuse (risky without save states), Boss Abuse (takes forever, also risky and limited by weapon durability), and infinite reinforcements (very rare, generally happens very late or is intended to be very dangerous and also limited by durability) allow for more XP than "normal".

** Ephraim is basically [[FireEmblemElibe Hector]], but with lances instead of axes. It's not unheard of for him to cap out ''several'' stats even before promoting.

* {{Nerf}}: The game-breakingly powerful Luna spell from the previous game (which could let its wielders take out even the end bosses like last week's trash) is made more cumbersome in this game, having its accuracy cut substantially as well as being rather bank-breaking to purchase. Paladins are also a little weaker in this game than they were in FireEmblemElibe due to losing the use of Axes to help differentiate them from the Great Knight, though it's consistent with pre-Elibe games.

* NoFairCheating: This is the only game in the Fire Emblem series to give you more than one Hammerne staff with more than one charge (although the second one comes with Lyon, who is pretty much a BraggingRightsReward), and Hammerne staves can be used to repair any weapon, tome, or staff... except the other Hammerne staff.
