Fire Emblem: Monshō no Nazo (which translates to Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem) is the third game in the Fire Emblem series and the first to be released over the Super Nintendo. It is divided into two halves, the first being a remake of the original Fire Emblem game while the second half acts as a direct sequel to it.
Book 2 is set several years later. In it, Marth is living happily and preparing for marriage when he is called in to suppress a rebellion within the Holy Empire of Akaneia, ruled by Marth's good friend Hardin. However, Marth soon comes across a conspiracy which threatens to change his relationship with Hardin forever, and giving him a new enemy in the process.
The gameplay was mostly similar to the previous game in that the player moved units across the gridded maps like pieces on a chessboard, with each unit having unique movement range as well as different abilities/weapons and weaknesses. Some tweaks include certain characters having Support bonuses when near each other, the ability to mount and dismount horses and modification of how the dragonstones worked.
The next Fire Emblem game to be released was Fire Emblem: Seisen no Keifu, which takes place in the continent of Jugdral a thousand years prior to the events of Book One. The next game to take place in Archanea was BS Fire Emblem in 1997, then Fire Emblem DS, which is also a remake of Ankoku Ryuu to Hikari no Tsurugi in 2008.
