The game focuses on two childhood friends who, as adults, are fighting for the opposing sides. Their stories intertwine, allowing us to see what happens on both sides of the conflict. Like in every game from the series, gameplay focuses on turn-based battles where we control a small group of heroes. There are many of them available for recruitment, but only a handful can be used on the battlefield.

Unlike its precursor, Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia features 3D visuals and fully voiced dialogues.
