Echoes: New (English) Screenshots + Music Samples

Not long after opening pre-orders for the Japanese “Valentia Complete” edition of Fire Emblem Echoes, Nintendo posted an article discussing this luxurious product.

The biggest highlight of the article is the chance to sample four tracks from the “Sound Selection Echoes” soundtrack CD, which is included in both the Valentia Complete and the Limited Edition.

The samples feature the original music from Gaiden (the game that Echoes is based on) alongside the newly arranged versions from Echoes.

Echoes: Japanese Pre-orders for Valentia Complete Now Open

Those of you in Japan (or who have a contact living there etc.) can now pre-order the Valentia Complete edition of Fire Emblem Echoes, which is sold exclusively from the official My Nintendo Store.

As we reported earlier, pre-orders were originally meant to start from 27th January 2017, but were later delayed due to overwhelming activity during the launch of the My Nintendo Store.

To make amends, Nintendo has promised that everyone who pre-orders the Valentia Complete between now and 16th February 2017 at 13:00 (Japan time) is guaranteed to receive a copy.

However, while Nintendo has prepared a lot of stock, should the initial stock run out, buyers may have to wait until after the game’s 20th April 2017 release to receive their Valentia Complete. But better late than never, right?

Anyway, below you can find details of the Valentia Complete and the other editions available from the store.

Heroes: Arena Promotion

After the amazing success of the Global Retweet Event, as well as the promised 10,000 Hero Feathers, players of Fire Emblem Heroes can look forward to some additional surprises!

Firstly, if you log-in between now and 13th March 2017 at 6:59 AM (UTC), you will receive 10 Dueling Crests, which restore 3 Dueling Swords each. These can be claimed from the Present List.

Secondly, to encourage you to use your Dueling Crests, there will be special Arena Quests that last until the end of this month. The great thing about these quests is that they grant more Hero Feathers (1000 from the initial quests) and Dueling Crests.

Given that the Arena is the best place to earn feathers (which are used to increase a Hero’s rarity), now’s a great chance to get accustomed to the system and increase your Arena Tier while you’re there!
