Nintendo’s Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia, a remake of Fire Emblem Gaiden, will be quite the experience. Along with full voice acting, revamped visuals and the classic battle system that’s defined the series, it will have a Season Pass that costs $45.
The Season Pass includes a whopping five DLC packs, each adding new maps, dungeons, classes and story missions. Each pack can be purchased separately and retails from $7.99 u to $14.99. Interestingly, the fifth DLC pack is yet to be outlined with more information promised in the future.
The first DLC pack arrives on May 19th with the game’s release. The second and third packs release on May 25th followed by the fourth on June 1st. That’s quite a bit of Fire Emblem content to go through in a month and Nintendo is also promising some free DLC at launch. It will apparently be a “special gift from Goddess Mila”, whatever that means.
