Whereas Birthright was the ‘beginner’ version of Fire Emblem Fates, Conquest is meant to be for the veteran FE fans. Maps are more difficult, you can’t grind, and in general, it’s just harder to complete. This makes the gameplay a lot better than Birthright, and less experienced fans can still choose Casual and Easy mode for a less challenging time. The final boss is just flat-out cheap though. Rather unfortunately, where Birthright’s story is just boring, Conquest’s is downright terrible. In the end, Conquest is better than Birthright and Revelations, but that’s not a hard bar to clear.
