Fire Emblem Everything! Complete Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia DLC Details

Having already released in Japan, details regarding the planned dlc for Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia had already started to flood the net and because details can get lost in translation, Nintendo of America has seen to it that there is no misconception!

How you may ask? Well they have issued a full on press release that covers everything in full detail, include US pricing and an official trailer and because this is one of “Everything” posts where we take all of that information and stick it into one place, that’s exactly what we’re going to do with today’s Fire Embem news, so here it all is

Nintendo Details DLC Coming to Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia for Nintendo 3DS:

The upcoming Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia game, which launches exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems on May 19, is a massive game filled to the brim with content. For players who want to extend their adventure even further, five major DLC packs are coming to the game starting on May 19, adding more maps, dungeons, characters and items.

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 news 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.

All of these packs, as well as the individual components included in each pack, can be purchased separately, giving players the flexibility to buy as many or as few as they want.

While Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia features all this great paid DLC, free downloadable content will also be released for the game after launch for a limited time, starting on May 19. The first free content is a special gift from Goddess Mila and can be obtained when playing the game.

For more details about the game’s DLC, visit Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia launches for Nintendo 3DS on May 19 at a suggested retail price of $39.99. A limited-edition bundle for the game will launch on the same day at a suggested retail price of $59.99. Also launching on May 19 are the Alm and Celica amiibo figures, available only as a set at a suggested retail price of $24.99.

Now I don’t know about you, but for a game that is overfilling with content already, before you count the dlc, the Season Pass is pricey as hell. In fact it is so pricey that it costs more than the game does if you get the standard edition and I can understand being a fan and waiting to have the dlc, but I don’t think I’ve ever wanted or needed it that badly. So if you are a Fire Emblem fan, I wish you the best of luck with saving up for it, because if you’re not tapped out already, you will be by when it releases.

But if you feel I’m overreacting, by all means get in touch and say your piece, but this is a case of dlc gone wrong in my book and maybe we’ll get lucky and it might get rectified at a later date, but don’t count on it!

Opinion: What Nintendo Did Wrong With Wii U


Nintendo’s latest home platform hasn’t had the best of times since the system was released back in 2012…boy, has it really been that long? Nintendo thought that the Wii U would ride to success on the coattails of the Wii. Unfortunately the luck they’d enjoyed since 2006 had run out.

I remember that day in June when I first saw the Wii U. I’d just arrived home from school and did what a student who had finals coming up was expected to do. Grab some snacks, put my feet up and look at Nintendo’s E3 presser…don’t judge me for I was only 13 😀


When I saw that controller I was blown away. I’d never seen anything like it. I remember telling all my friends about it the next day at school, they couldn’t care less and I couldn’t understand. I mean finally a Nintendo system with graphics comparable to…
