Nintendo News: New DLC Maps Headed to Fire Emblem Fates Starting May 5

REDMOND, Wash.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Starting May 5, Fire
Emblem Fates
is getting new
DLC maps
that expand on the hit Nintendo
3DS
game’s sprawling story and characters. The first map, I: In
Endless Dreams, can be downloaded for only 49 cents, with subsequent
maps launching weekly until June 9 and available for $1.99 each. Fans
that want to automatically receive each new map as it releases can do so
by purchasing Map Pack 2 for $7.99. Map Pack 2 content is priced at more
than $10 when purchased individually. Even players who have purchased I:
In Endless Dreams can still purchase Map Pack 2 to receive a discount
when compared to buying the subsequent maps individually.


Unlike the contents of Map Pack 1, the stages included in Map Pack 2
tell an ongoing story. Across dimensions, other versions of the Hoshidan
and Nohrian children are under attack. Born and raised in the
Deeprealms, these fledgling warriors must now rise up to save themselves
and their parents as they unravel the mystery of their adversaries. In
this six-map series, units leveled up in the main game cannot lend
support. Players must devise a strategy using a fresh team to reap the
rewards, but only if all units survive. More information is available at http://fireemblemfates.nintendo.com/dlc/#mappack2.

The list of maps and their respective release dates and prices are as
follows:

  • May 5-June 9 – Map Pack 2 ($7.99)
  • May 5 – I: In Endless Dreams (49 cents)
  • May 12 – II: Realms Collide ($1.99)
  • May 19 – III: The Changing Tide ($1.99)
  • May 26 – IV: Light’s Sacrifice ($1.99)
  • June 2 – V: Endless Dawn ($1.99)
  • June 9 – End: Lost in the Waves ($1.99)

As a bonus, Another Gift from Anna, which provides players with the
Boots and Paragon items, is available to download for free on May 5 for
players who already own the Fire
Emblem Fates: Birthright
or Fire
Emblem Fates: Conquest
games.

Fire Emblem Fates, acclaimed by both critics and audiences, finds
players battling on a variety of maps using a memorable cast of
characters, each with different abilities. In addition to the extra DLC
maps, three full separate games that offer different perspectives on the
adventure are available to play through: Fire Emblem Fates: Birthright,
Fire Emblem Fates: Conquest and, most recently, Fire
Emblem Fates: Revelation
, which is available to purchase at the
beginning of Chapter 6 from the in-game shop in either Fire Emblem
Fates: Birthright
or Fire Emblem Fates: Conquest.
