Star Wars x Fire Emblem: Galactic Campaign is a tactical RPG developed and released for the Nintendo Switch, Nintendo 3DS, and Android/iOS devices. As the name suggests, it is a crossover between Star Wars and Fire Emblem, borrowing the setting and plot from the former and the majority of the gameplay from the latter.
The majority of the gameplay is identical to Fire Emblem, with combat taking place on a battlefield made up of square tiles arranged in a rectangular grid. The player controls a small army of Rebels consisting of unique units, and face off against significantly larger armies of enemy units. The armies take turns moving their units, attacking enemy units, and interacting with the map in various ways, with the player's goal usually being to completely clear the enemy army or defeat its commanding officer.
However, the similarities fall short there. SWxFE foregoes several of the staple Fire Emblem stats in favor of a unique selection that better suits its setting.
- HP represents a unit's vitality and endurance. This stat is represented by a fraction which is reduced in value when the character takes damage or uses special skills. If a unit's HP drops to zero, they are either removed from the battle or permanently killed depending on what mode of gameplay the player has selected.
- Power represents a unit's strength and endurance. It affects the damage of attacks using melee weapons like staves and lightsabers.
- Accuracy represents a unit's dexterity and accuracy. It affects the damage of attacks using ranged weapons like blasters and slings.
- Spirit represents a unit's level of attunement to the Force. It affects the effectiveness of Force-based abilities. Most units have a Spirit of zero.
- Armor represents a unit's physical durability. It affects the damage taken from both melee and ranged attacks.
- Speed represents a unit's initiative and reaction speed. It affects the unit's evade rate. Additionally, if the unit's Speed is higher than its enemy's by a certain amount, it can strike the enemy twice in one attack.
- Skill represents a unit's combat aptitude. It affects the unit's hit rate and critical hit rate, as well as the activation rates of some passive abilities.
- Luck represents a unit's overall fortune. It affects the unit's critical hit rate and critical hit resistance, as well as the activation rates of some passive abilities.
- Move represents a unit's movement speed. When moving, the unit can move across a number of tiles equal to their Move stat.
The game's story mode is split into multiple short campaigns inspired by famous battles and encounters from Star Wars movies, as well as a longer campaign feature a totally original long-canon plotline.

- The concept for a crossover between Star Wars and Fire Emblem was conceived during a semi-coherent rant by the page's writer (t∣b∣c) about how fighting games did not lend themselves to the recurring themes of Star Wars as a series, during which they said that the series would probably lend itself very well to a tactical RPG like Fire Emblem, yet most of its successful and well-remembered games were first-person shooters or action-adventure titles.
