Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia is a tactical RPG by Japanese developer Intelligent Systems. The game is set in the continent of Valentia, where a war between the nations of Rigel and Zofia has erupted. Players will lead their armies as protagonists Alm and Celica to bring peace back to the war-torn lands.
Five future DLC packs have already been announced for the game. Players may purchase a Season Pass for $44.99 and save 30% as compared to buying each item individually, according to Nintendo. The paid DLC are, in order of release date: Fledgling Warriors (two new maps and a dungeon), Undaunted Heroes (another two maps and a dungeon), Lost Altars (dungeons and exclusive class changes), Rise of the Deliverance (prequel pack of four maps), and a fifth, as-of-yet-undetailed content pack.
Purchasing Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia along with any DLC pack at GameStop grants you a “Warring Gods” collectible chrome print displayed above. While placing a pre-order is technically not required, the retailer does state that the quantities of this item are “extremely limited”.
The $59.99 Limited Edition comes with the game plus the following:
- A Hardcover Valentia Artbook
- Sound Selection CD
- Pin Set depicting characters Alm, Celica and Marth
- Reversible cover sheet that looks like the packaging for the original Famicom game this one is based on
The game will launch for the Nintendo 3DS system on May 19th internationally.
