Nintendo of America has announced a metric ton of DLC for the upcoming of Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia.  There are 5 DLC packs in total that will set you back a very steep $51.95 if purchased individually, but there is a season pass option for $44.99 which will save you a little cash at least.

Here is an overview of the DLC straight from Nintendo:

  • 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 new 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.

The game  will release  on May 19 in North America and Europe.

 

About Steve Baltimore

Steve started with oprainfall not long after the campaign moved from the IGN forums to Facebook. Ever since, he has been fighting to give all non-mainstream RPGs a fair voice. As the site admin, he will continue to do this and even show there is value in what some would deem "pure ecchi." He loves niche games and anime more than anything... well, except maybe Neptune.

    Damn, 45$! Reading through the content on offer it just seems like dungeons that were cut out of the game.

      I thought I was looking at EA release there for a second 😛

  • Panpopo

    I think this is a test case on seeing what people will pay for. I can’t imagine that many people will buy the whole $45 pack though as it flies in the face of common sense – who will pay for DLC that is more than the base game?

    They clearly think some people will buy it though, or they wouldn’t do it. I hope they don’t, or this will be the norm for future Nintendo releases.

    • Miqubi

      There are games that sell their CE without the base game inside, I have no doubt in my mind that people will buy that season pass

    • Panpopo

      Yeah 🙁 I really hope the people that buy the whole $45 is minimal though

  • Paychi

    Yeah, no.
