Fire Emblem Fates is set to launch on February 19th alongside a special new Nintendo 3DS XL. Now, the DLC plans for the game have been revealed: and there are a lot of them.
First thing’s first: the game is set up in a somewhat odd way. Players can choose to purchase one of two versions of Fire Emblem Fates games for $39.99 each. In Fire Emblem Fates: Birthright, players battle a corrupted king. And in Fire Emblem Fates: Conquest, a misguided kingdom must be changed from within. Each path is a complete story and a complete game. Playing both will show players two different sides of one brutal conflict. After completing Chapter 6, players will have the option to download the other version of the game and experience a new adventure for $19.99. In addition, a third story, Fire Emblem Fates: Revelation, which finds the game’s main character choosing neither the “Conquest” nor “Birthright” path in the story, launches as DLC on March 10 for $19.99.
Further downloadable content in the form of new maps will also be released on a regular basis, with the first map launching on Feb. 19, the day the game releases. Players can choose to buy each of these maps individually, or purchase Map Pack 1 for $17.99 to get access to them all at a discount once they are released.
