Controls[edit]

World Map[edit]

  • Neutral dpad: Move cursor
  • A button: Toggle between movement types (stationary, advance, retreat, sideways)
  • Select button: View information on friendly, enemy, or neutral forces
  • Start button: Pause game

Battles[edit]

  • Neutral dpad: Move cursor
  • A button: Toggle between movement types (stationary, advance, retreat, sideways)
  • Select button: Toggle between small cursor (which affects only one unit at a time) and large cursor (which controls up to four units at a time)
  • Start button: Pause game

When the cursor touches one of your own units, whether on the overworld or in battle, that unit will continue moving in the direction of the cursor until you tell it otherwise. For that reason, it's a good idea to keep track of what all your units are doing.

On the battle screen, press A button or B button to cycle through the twelve different battle formations available. Battle strategy shall be discussed in greater detail later in the guide.
