What kind of game is this or what is the story about?
It's a fantasy-based turned-based tactics game.
As far as the plot... though I do know some of the end parts, I only started so I will resort to wiki...
The story focuses on the trials of Chrom, the prince of the Halidom of Ylisse, and his companions during a turbulent era. When the neighboring nation of Plegia starts acting suspiciously, Chrom commands his band of soldiers--the Shepherds--to keep his country at peace. He encounters an unholy force called the Risen plaguing the lands and a masked swordsman claiming to be Marth, the Hero-King of legend.
The story begins with the player character, "the Avatar", waking up in the middle of the field with no memories of their past life. The Avatar joins Chrom and several members of the Shepherds when a nearby town is attacked by bandits. The Shepherds move to fight both Plegia's forces and the Risen, and are helped by a mysterious swordsman calling himself Marth, who seems to have knowledge of future events. Gangrel is eventually defeated, but at the cost of the life of Chrom's older sister, Emmeryn. Two years after Gangrel's defeat, Chrom inherits the throne of Ylisse from his sister and is married with a newborn daughter named Lucina. Chrom leads the Shepherds again when Emperor Walhart of Valm threatens to invade Ylisse and its allies, and they are victorious. During the campaign, Marth returns and reveals herself to be Lucina from the future. She warns Chrom that in the future, the Fell Dragon Grima awakened and brought destruction to the world. Using a spell created by Grima's nemesis Naga, Lucina traveled back in time to prevent Grima's awakening, which is achieved by combining the legendary Fire Emblem with five magical gems.
