Dark days are Rising...

War has engulfed the land of Tellius, where human beorc and half-human laguz view each other with mistrust. When a surprise invasion triggers a worldwide conflict, a sinister force emerges from the shadows and pits the two against one another. Only a young mercenary named Ike and his small band of soldiers-for-hire stand between Tellius and madness.

Command new units and familiar favorites, including shape-shifting laguz and spear-weilding wyvern riders, in lush 3D battles.
Master strategy, stell and sorcery to guide Ike and his forces to victory and restore peace to the seven kingdoms.
Customize your units with combat skills like Deadeye, but guide them carefully–if they fall in battle, they're gone forever!


Path of Radiance is set on the continent of Tellius. When the country of Daein, led by the mad King Ashnard, invades its neighboring country, Crimea, disaster breaks loose. The royal family of Crimea is completely wiped out, save for the young Princess Elincia. When Ike and his company find Elincia wandering in the forest, they take her back to their mercenary fort to take care of her. After she explains her situation, the company decides to work under her employment until she can return to her country.
