Fire Emblem: Mystery Of The Emblem is a turn-based RPG strategy game released in 1994 exclusively in Japan for the Super Nintendo. During each turn, a character from each battalion is selected to make a move across a grid designed map. Battles are handled automatically depending on the characters turn, position, and statistics. Gain experience during battles and upgrade each character's weapons to stand a better chance If a character falls in battle then they are gone for good, but if the lead protagonist is defeated then the game is over. Lead the hero army to the enemy base and defeat the general in each map to successfully advance. New additions to this installment include a battery RAM save feature, icons and names for weapons and units, and finally a new feature is the dismount command, which allows cavalier units to get off their horses and fight on foot.

The game takes place in the fictional continent of Archanea, which originally appeared in the first game of the series. Divided by two books, the first book is a remake of the original Fire Emblem: Dark Dragon & The Blade of Light. In the second book, former Prince of Aurelis and former ally to Marth, ascends to become Emperor of Akaneia. Power corrupts the new emperor as Marth realizes the old dark forces are still alive and corrupting the kingdom. Tracing an old legend of yore, Marth retrieves the Fire Emblem once again (this time from Linde, who was entrusted with it by Princess Nyna), and goes on a quest to retrieve the twelve star orb shards to retrieve magical orb required to defeat and free Hardin.
