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.

  • Customise a male or female main character and command your own army
  • Choose between two warring kingdoms, each of which offers a completely different storyline with unique characters
  • On the Hoshido path, work together with your allies to fend off Nohrian invaders

It's the better of the two retail versions of Fates, but still the weakest 3DS game in the series (DLC Campaign Revelations was best for it). It's a high bar though after Echoes
Fire Emblems Warriors £7.95 as well on The Game Collection
Still a fun game!

In terms of being the better version of Fates? Or weakest 3DS game? If you mean better version, the Nohr version, Conquest, is designed as a harder game which is better for classic fans but the story is just badly written. Birthright feels more natural, whereas Revelations definitely feels like a true ending to the story.

If you mean weakest game, I'm not saying Fates is a bad game, I spent a lot of time on it. But the child unit mechanics try to copy those in Awakening and it feels incredibly forced by comparison. On top of this, the gameplay was a lot more fun in Fire Emblem Echoes, bringing a lot of variety but that game is a remake of the 2nd FE game (Gaiden), so the old-school design is intact. Which for me is a positive but people may differ here.

I never realised Conquest was a harder game. Thanks for letting me know. I assumed this was a Pokémon situation type thing. I know there's a choice in each which is essentially the same game for the first few hours and then Revelations is the true ending

Is conquest still playable and enjoyable for a newbie to fire emblem but generally experienced with games? Picked it up on sale awhile back but didn't have a charger for my 3ds so haven't given it a shot yet. My main strategy rpg experience is limited to disgaea (played through all 6 of them), phantom brave and valkyria chronicles.
