Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones is a role-playing game based around strategic battles. You must navigate your pieces across the battle map, engaging and eliminating enemy units. 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. This game includes brand-new character classes and introduces a new way of changing your character classes, opening up new strategic possibilities. Additionally, for the first time, Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones features some traditional fantasy monsters, from skeletons to zombies, from gargoyles to gorgons. Finally, Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones contains a new "Guide" that contains a glossary of terms and explanation of game commands and features.

Centuries ago, the entire continent of Magvel was besieged by monsters. In their most desperate moment, five great heroes received the Sacred Stones, powerful artifacts whose light drove the darkness away. These heroes founded the nations that, to this day, house the Sacred Stones. Now, after centuries of peace, one of those nations, the Grado Empire, has invaded its age-old ally, the kingdom of Renais. The royal twins of Renais, Eirika and Ephraim, flee their homeland and fight to discover the Grado emperor’s motives. All the while, an ancient evil lurks in the shadows, waiting for its moment to strike.
