Medeus, the king of the dragonkin, has been revived and is forming an alliance with a fearsome sorcerer named Gharnef. Together, they threaten to the throw the entire continent of Archanea back to an age of chaos and war. Now, it’s up to young Prince Marth and his small band of loyal followers to rise up and rally all those left in the land to make one last desperate push to free Archanea from the tyranny of the Shadow Dragon.

You can also borrow units to use in your army, talk with friends using the built-in Nintendo DS microphone, and even buy rare and powerful items from the Online Shop using in-game currency.
