Nintendo describes the upcoming Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia as a “massive” game. There is also no shortage of DLC content to further expand the experience.
Nintendo today has outlined its DLC plans for the game, with a total of five packs on the way. These will add content like new dungeons, maps, story content, and classes. The first one will be available on launch day, and three more are due out by June 1st. Details about the fifth pack have not been expanded upon.
Here’s how Nintendo describes them all:
- DLC Pack #1 — Fledgling Warriors Pack (May 19, $7.99/£7.19/€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/£8.99/€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/£13.49/€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/£11.69/€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/ £4.49/€4,99, two pieces of content): More information about this final DLC pack will be revealed in the future.
The season pass consists of all five DLC packs for $45, which saves you $7 over buying each pack on its own. Free DLC is on its way alongside the paid content. This begins with “a special gift from Goddess Mila” that will be available starting on launch day. The DLC trailer suggest it may be an in-game item.
Fire Emblem Echoes launches on May 19th for 3DS.
