Today, Nintendo released DLC details for its upcoming 3DS title Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia. A total of five DLC packs will be released for the game in the upcoming months, with the first two out when the game will be released May 19.
A full remake of 1992’s Fire Emblem Gaiden, the series’ second entry, Fire Emblem Echoes follows Alm and Celica, childhood friends fighting on opposite ends of a war between their respective nations. While the game still is still rooted in its signature tactical RPG style, the game incorporates new features such as the ability to navigate towns and an overworld. The remake expands the story that was originally included in Gaiden, as well as a host of other improvements to the original game.
In addition to the main game, Nintendo released details regarding its plans for downloadable content:
- DLC Pack #1 – Fledgling Warriors Pack (May 19, $7.99, three pieces of content): Ideal for early- to mid-game adventurers, this pack includes a new dungeon (The Astral Temple) and two new maps, great for gaining more items, money and experience points.
- DLC Pack #2 – Undaunted Heroes Pack (May 25, $9.99, three pieces of content): In addition to a new dungeon (The Inner Sanctum), this pack also includes two challenging new maps that stronger, more seasoned heroes will want to tackle.
- DLC Pack #3 – Lost Altars Pack (May 25, $14.99, 10 pieces of content): The mysterious dungeons included in this pack hold the power to upgrade characters to exclusive classes that don’t appear in the main game.
- DLC Pack #4 – Rise of the Deliverance Pack (June 1, $12.99, four pieces of content): Discover the previously untold history of Valentia in this Prologue pack. Complete with new story content and additional voice acting that details the rise of the Deliverance in Zofia, this collection of challenging maps includes new support conversations between selected heroes, as well as the ability to take command of a character players won’t be able to control in the main game.
- DLC Pack #5 ($5.99, two pieces of content): More information about this final DLC pack will be revealed in the future.
Additionally, a season pass which grants access to all DLC packs when available, is purchasable for $44.99, a 30% savings compared to each piece individually. Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia will be available on the Nintendo 3DS on May 19. Stay tuned for more news here on Gaming Trend.
