New DLC for Fire Emblem: Awakening is scheduled to come out October 4th!  The screenshot above of the new DLC episode is captioned “Another Future”.
Costing 250 Yen, this DLC features new support conversations, maps, and the first episode of a new storyline titled “The Future of Despair”.  In this four-star difficulty episode, the children are trapped in separate cells and set on by enemies – as strategist, it is your job to rescue all of them as quickly as possible.
Will you be able to save them all, or will there be a future filled with despair?  It’s all up to you.

  • I wonder how much dlc will make it to the west….. Will we get dlc that includes characters from games that never made it to the west?

    • I don’t know…I feel like we might not, since Nintendo might assume that U.S. consumers won’t buy DLC containing characters we don’t know.

    • yea thats my fear, than again they could use this as a way to introduce us to characters from games they might end up localizing. I highly doubt that but you never know. The only past fire emblem I think might end up being localized is 6 because it continues the story of 7. 

    • I really hope it does, I tried playing it in Japanese but I feel like I missed out on a good chunk of the storyline, and I ended up stopping after several chapters.  It’s been a while though, so like you I’m also a bit doubtful about it…plus, there are probably some English fan-translations out there already.

    •  I’ve played the fan trans of 6 and it was pretty nice. Tough game though but still good. I’d put past fire emblems in the same category as mother 3, something we want but will probably never get.

    • Tough isn’t quite the way I’d describe it, more like infuriating. Enemy reinforcements being able to move on the same turn they appear had me ragequiting countless of times. Glad they fixed that in the following games.

  • I can’t wait for Fire Emblem to finally come out in the US.  Why does it have to be so long?

    • Yea I know. I just hope when it gets closer to the release date the game will get good reviews and marketed well.

  • Good! Keep dem DLC coming, glad to hear we will be getting them as well… right?
