Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia hits the Nintendo 3DS on May 19, and Nintendo already has big plans for upcoming DLC.
In a press release distributed earlier today, Nintendo outlined what's on the menu. There are five major DLC packs that add new dungeons, items, maps, and characters.
The first DLC pack, the Fledgling Warriors Pack, is "ideal for early- to- mid-game adventurers," and includes a new dungeon called the Astral Temple, as well as two new maps that are "great for gaining more items, money, and experience points." It's available on release day (May 19) and costs $7.99 USD.
The second pack, the Undated Heroes Pack, arrives on May 25. It features a new dungeon called The Inner Sanctum, as well as two new maps ideal for seasoned adventurers. It costs $9.99 USD.
The third pack, coming June 1, is the Lost Altars Pack. It contains new dungeons that let the characters upgrade to classes that don't appear in the main game. It costs $14.99 USD.
Finally, the fourth pack, which arrives one June 1, is the Prologue Pack. It tells the history of Valentia through new story content, additional voice acting, new support conversations, and new maps. It also lets you take control of a character you can't otherwise play as in the vanilla game. It costs $12.99 USD.
The fifth DLC pack is still in the works, and Nintendo has yet to outline what's within. We do know it'll cost $5.99 USD, and will include two new pieces of content.
You can buy the DLC packs separately, or dish out $44.99 for a Season Pass.
