Posted on September 25, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in New Nintendo 3DS, News, Switch

Nintendo has announced the Fire Emblem Warriors DLC for North America and Europe, which was first revealed at the Tokyo Game Show this weekend.

Here’s the full rundown of DLC with pricing:

Season Pass (Oct. 20, $19.99 / £17.99): The Fire Emblem Warriors Season Pass includes all three DLC packs, which become available as they release. Each DLC pack is filled with new playable characters and weapons. By purchasing the Season Pass for either the Nintendo Switch or New Nintendo 3DS version, players will receive a bridal costume for Lucina.

DLC Pack #1 (Dec 2017, $8.99 / £8.09): The content in this pack is inspired by Fire Emblem Fates.

DLC Pack #2 (Feb 2018, $8.99 / £8.09): Many of the characters and items in this DLC pack hail from Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon.

DLC Pack #3 (March 2018, $8.99 / £8.09): Fans of Fire Emblem Awakening will love this DLC, as much of the content is themed after the classic game.

Nintendo says that additional details about the DLC will be shared in the future.

In other news, Nintendo has provided some information about amiibo support in Fire Emblem Warriors. The new Chrom and Tiki figures plus other compatible Fire Emblem amiibo figures including Marth, Ike, Robin and Lucina, grant players weapons or materials when tapped. Players can scan up to five different compatible amiibo figures per day.

  • $20 for Year 1 is pretty ok, if we get an Year 2 both will cost like $40, I’m fine with this.

  • NintendoPSXTheSecond

    Ironically this is $20 and I think it gives more than HW. Though, one could argue the challenge maps in HW (Which imo was getting too much over time) were worth the $20.

  • Bart

    The way it’s phrased here does make it seem like it won’t just be characters from the games mentioned…

    • Dunnington

      I really, really hope so. There’s so much more to Fire Emblem than these 3 games. Why they would limit themselves to them is beyond me.

      • Busterblade

        They spoke of this, that they might make sequels. It could easily be that, or, which is far more likely, as Bart insinuates that there are other chars in that DLC as well.

        • awesomeparadise3

          They also said fan demand would determine future DLC direction. As in Pack 4+.

          • Busterblade

            Well, then all the people who want Ike/Roy etc need to do, is give the idea of demand, not sit here wailing on other people.

    • Tlink7

      It probably won’t be, considering the devs used similar wording when it came to characters in the main game: ”mostly characters from Fates/SD/Awakening” and we know how that turned out

      • Hidden Flare

        least two characters from other games?

    • Fandangle

      Senseless speculation is part of the reason so many people are angry over this.

      Any way I can only see outrage happening.

      • Dragonage2ftw

        You’re outraged, no matter what.

        • Fandangle

          Except I’m not. I’d be pretty happy if they added in actually popular characters. But now, we get 3 repurposed healers an exp hog that only shippers like, a waifu, and the entire royal families of fates despite only 4 of them being relevant (1 of them being Aqua), and only 3 of them anywhere close to being popular (Takumi, Camilla, and Marx), and let’s not forget the two sword using OCs when they claimed they didn’t want to over saturate sword users.

          The cast is just awful no matter what way you put it.

          • Dragonage2ftw

            You could call any roster in the world bad if you spin it like that.

          • Fandangle

            I don’t see how when it’s literally true. Out of the top 5 characters in the FEH poll (two of which were Ike because he’s that popular) only one got in. They instead pick 4 others from 5 – 10th and And a bunch of others that weren’t even top 20.

            They didn’t include obviously popular characters more than likely to make them into DLC later so fans end up paying more to play as the characters they actually want. The roster is pretty trash and there was a million and one ways they could have done It better.

          • Dragonage2ftw

            1. I didn’t even realize this at first, but calling Leo unpopular is laughable. He’s the most popular Male character in Fates.

            2. That poll came out after the roster was made.

            3. Thinking that poll means anything is laughable.

          • Fandangle

            He isn’t, that’d be Takumi, probably because how insane he was in Nohr.

            I doubt it did. Besides, warriors games are so laughably simple that it wouldn’t be hard to change it.

            Thinking the poll means nothing is laughable, because it’s an accurate chart to the current fandom’s opinions on characters. However I never had the stance that characters should be in on popularity alone. I’m just pointing out that they’re doing it entirely wrong and if they wanted to make “the most popular” then they are doing the exact opposite of that. I’ve stated how I think the roster should have been made before.

    • ToonAddict1

      I have a feeling that the characters that those characters will consist of Ike, Roy, and Alm.

  • Zeebor

    >Many characters and items

    Ah, so more than 2 characters each time, AND packs two and three will have multiple games represented in them.

  • NeptuniasBeard

    Dang, the same price as the Hyrule Warriors DLC? That’s pretty dang cheap.

    And “many characters” huh? Even if that only applies to SD, I like that wording

  • Semi Colon Parenthesis

    “Fire Emblem Awakening” “after the classic game”
    [salt intensifies]

  • Aiddon

    My hopes for characters:

    Fates: Azura

    Shadow Dragon: Ogma

    Awakening: Tharja

    • Tlink7

      I’d like Azura and Hans (so you can just backstab your allies and be a general jerk for no real reason) from Fates and Walhart (remix of ”’Mastermind” please :D) and Kellam from Awakening

  • Princess_Eevee9

    Like others mentioned, that pricing, and yooo that mysterious wording.

  • Tlink7

    Awakening is now a classic game ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

  • Umegames Official

    Liked Hyrule warriors alot and the DLC, so I’ll be doing this as well.

  • Amethyst Gaze

    Give Bride Cordelia.

  • ≈ KobobKC ≈ ᔦꙬᔨ

    I hope this game has something equivalent to adventure maps from HW.

  • Icesticker

    since when is Awakening a “classic”. Also would have been cool and a nice step with them not releasing Ike if the amiibo added those characters.

    • Velen (Not WoW)

      Yeah, I read that about it being a classic and I just squinted my eyes….

      Awakening was the first FE game I’ve officially owned with my own money… Calling it a classic is more than a stretch…

  • Vigilante_blade

    Horrible is all I will say.

  • Hidden Flare

    Gotta say always felt the amiibo wouldn’t do a big thing. Sorry for those hoping for the best with that…

  • bentheblaze2390

    Just add bIke and bHector and well be fine.
