Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia reimagines the second entry in the series, Fire Emblem Gaiden. However, the game will receive one thing the original never could, DLC. Nintendo has revealed the contents of the four main DLC packs coming to Fire Emblem Echoes, which can be purchased separately or bundled in a Season Pass. The fifth and final DLC will be detailed at a later date. Here’s the information via Nintendo, along with a trailer at the bottom.
Season Pass (May 19, $44.99, 22 pieces of content): The Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia Season Pass includes all five DLC packs as they release. By purchasing the Season Pass, fans who want to receive all DLC will save more than 30 percent compared to purchasing all 22 pieces of content on their own.
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.
It should be noted that free add-on content will also be coming to Fire Emblem Echoes, including things like free item drops.
Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia launches on May 19 for Nintendo 3DS. Make sure you also take a look at the most recent trailer for the game, showing off some new strategic combat.
