The game is a turn based tactical role playing game, where the player must move their characters within a grid. The game involves moving characters into positions in order to attack the opposing side, or defend against their attacks. Characters possess a certain number of health points; when attacked, they are subtracted, and the character is defeated on losing them all. Battles are typically won by attacking the opposing side until all enemy characters have lost all of their health points.
Many new features, or features rarely present in the series, have been added to the game. The "Avatar" system, originating from Fire Emblem: Shin Monshō no Nazo: Hikari to Kage no Eiyū returns in greater detail, allowing the player to create and customize their own playable character.
In between battles, the player can explore the overworld map and converse with non-playable characters or buy items to be used in battles.
The game also features a class system, where different classes possess different skills, strengths, and weaknesses, with the player having the ability to change character's classes as seen in Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon. Upon reaching a certain level, units can promote to a new class and the player can select between branching choices. There are over 40 classes available in the game. Characters can have up to five skills at one time, with surplus skills held in the character's skill bank. The game features a new option to perform a Dual Strike attack with a supporting character. Adjacent characters also have a chance of performing a Dual Guard, a defensive technique which cancels out an enemy's attack altogether.
Characters, while battling together, have the ability to develop emotional ties to one another. Some characters are even able to pair up and have children. The player-created avatar is able to pair up and marry any opposite gendered character, eventually having children which can be used in battle. More information about the characters can be found at List of Fire Emblem Awakening Characters.
The player has the choice of several difficulty levels, including "Normal", "Hard", and even harder modes "Lunatic" and "Lunatic+". Additionally, separate from the difficulty levels, there are "Classic" and "Casual" modes; "Classic" mode involves the permanent death feature the series is known for, where characters can never be revived after dying, while the "casual" mode allows characters to automatically revive post-battle.
Additionally, if two players interact with each other through StreetPass, their Avatar's party will appear both of their worlds. Players then can buy items from the party or recruit the leader either by paying or battling the team; battling increases the player's renown which is also shown to other players via StreetPass. A local multiplayer mode known as "Dual Tag" allows players to pair up to fight enemies to earn renown and items.
