‘Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia’ Season Pass Details

Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia

Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia is coming this month and Nintendo has outlined the plethora of DLC it will be releasing. There’s a total of five packs ranging from $5.99 to $12.99. You can purchase them individually or you can buy the season pass for $44.99 and save yourself about seven bucks if you plan on picking up all the DLC.

These packs all offer a different variety of things. The Fledgling Warriors Pack will give you a new dungeon and two new maps designed to help you get leveled up early. If you look at the Lost Altars Pack, it includes 10 pieces of content and includes dungeons with the ability to upgrade characters to new classes.

This may seem like a lot DLC but Fire Emblem has offered a lot of DLC in the past of the 3DS starting with Awakening and going through Fates. All of it is coming just a short time after the game is released which may discourage some fans.
