Nintendo has announced that five downloadable content packs will drop within the next couple of months for one of its more recently released 3DS games, Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia.
Those that want to get in on the next five DLCs for the game — which costs $49 CAD — will have to dish out more than they probably expected to.
The season pass for Shadows of Valentia includes the Fledgling Warriors Pack, Undaunted Heroes, Lost Alters, Rise of the Deliverance and a fifth unnamed downloadable content pack. The price for the season pass is $63.59, which is $13 more expensive than the actual game.
Though $63.59 is steep for DLC — especially for a handheld game — you’ll save more buying all five DLC packs, as a couple of them cost nearly half of the prive of the full game if purchased on their own.
The first DLC pack, set to release May 19th, is set to cost $11.29, and includes a new dungeon and two new maps. The second DLC set to be released May 25th, called Undaunted Heroes, is priced at $14.09 and comes with three pieces content, including a new dungeon, and two new maps.
On the same day the third instalment, Lost Altars, drops for $21.19 and includes ten pieces of content. This DLC has new dungeons and ways to upgrade characters not yet seen in the game.
The fourth instalment releases June 1st and is set to be priced at $18.39. This DLC comes with four pieces of content incorporating a new untold story that is prologue to the story in Valentia. Rise of the Deliverance includes new story content, additional voice acting and challenging maps.
The fifth DLC has two pieces of content and will be priced at $8.49, however, Nintendo has not released any further information about it.
If you’ve been doing the math, you might have noticed purchasing all the DLC separately will cost $73.45, which is nearly ten dollars cheaper than the season pass and almost the price of a recently release console game like Horizon Zero Dawn or Breath of the Wild.
