Hot-Spring Scramble

Strategies for all difficulties

As with the Summer Scramble the ulterior motive of this stage is to see “cute” art for four of your characters sporting a Japanese bathrobe, or yukata. The elected characters are all offspring, as opposed to the Summer Scramble’s older selection.

However this is a tougher stage than Summer. An important thing to watch out for are the Risen that can move freely across the water. Primarily Tricksters and swordsmen.

The swordsmen start the match incapacitated, which is a boon, but enemies will spawn at the top and bottom of the map so you hardly have the downtime to prepare.

Send one of two characters to the left bottleneck and then hold the rest back. You want to wait back for a few turns, at least until the reinforcements are exhausted. Remember to keep characters away from the danger zone and always account for water movers when judging what’s safe.

Once the reinforcements are dealt with, and the swordsmen begin moving, just play the rest of the stage carefully and you’ll be fine.

And enjoy the yukata.

Join Chrom, brother to Ylisse’s empress and commander of its forces, in a fantasy world teetering on the brink of war. It’s your duty to guide a team of Ylisse’s finest soldiers - knights, mages, archers, and more - against the marauding Plegian bandits. To succeed, you will need to carefully choose the units you take into battle. As you lead your team through battles across maps that span entire kingdoms, your army will grow. Some characters are willing to join you quickly, while others may need more persuasion. Each character earns experience in battle, leveling up and gaining strength and abilities as they do so. It’s up to you to guide their moves, choose their weapons, and direct their attacks.
