In Fire Emblem Fates, you can choose between Classic, Casual, and Phoenix game modes. In Classic, your units have permadeath, but in Casual and Phoenix they'll come back. If I start out with Classic, lose unit XYZ, and switch to Casual or Phoenix, will I get unit XYZ back?

  • How exactly would you switch between the different modes? My understanding was that once you created an account within a certain mode, you can't change it until you beat the game and you are replaying. – Cyberson Jun 27 '16 at 4:30
  • I'm not sure if this refers to the game before you beat it, but: gamefaqs.com/boards/141838-fire-emblem-fates-birthright/… – atirit Jun 27 '16 at 5:52
  • Have you tried doing as that forum post suggested? – Cyberson Jun 27 '16 at 23:31
  • @Cyberson To be completely honest, I haven't bought the game yet. I heard about the different modes, and I was just curious. I was hoping someone who has the game knew already. – atirit Jun 28 '16 at 4:42

Yes, it appears that switching mode to Casual or Phoenix will resurrect the characters you lost in previous chapters (source).

This apparently only affects standard characters on your game path, though. Units obtained through capture or the Einherjar shop do not come back after switching from Classic mode.
