Downloadable Content

When connected to the internet, players can purchase the paid downloadable content (DLC), which includes new maps and episodes. The DLC is not required to complete the game, but is geared towards players seeking a deeper game experience.

screenshot screenshot

The DLC episodes can be accessed any time after completing Chapter 4, by venturing to a lone island to the far south of Ylisse, where the mysterious Outrealm Gate is located. Beyond this gate lies Anna--the gate's keeper and the player's connection to other-worldly adventures. The available commands in the Outrealm Gate are: Play a Map, Purchase Maps and Exit.

Each episode in the first series typically pits your trained units against the Einherjar--summoned characters from Fire Emblem history (in other words, legacy characters). Upon completion of an episode, you will usually obtain a legacy character with new artwork drawn by a guest artist and sometimes a DLC-exclusive item too.

In case you're curious, the legacy characters you fight in the DLC episodes can all be obtained via SpotPass (although often with a different class and stats).

For commonly asked questions about DLC, please check the F.A.Q page!

For example, the "Champions Pack" contains all three "Champions of Yore" episodes and costs $6.00, while it would cost $7.50 to purchase the maps separately. The DLC packs may contain episodes yet to be released; players can view unreleased episodes in the Outrealm Gate, but can not play them until they're released.

In this future filled with despair, war reaches its climactic finish. Can you alter the children's future?
Reward: Glimpse into the future
Difficulty: 5 star, Price: $3.00
This map requires you to fight beside Lucina, Gerome, Severa and Laurent on the battlefield. To prevent powerful enemy reinforcements from appearing, the children fight encamped by the stairs. If you don't co-operate well, the children will fall and reinforcements will swarm. If the mothers and fathers move next to the children of this world, special dialogue can be viewed. This map is a must for those interested in another future where only the children survived.

Your strongest soldiers and your ultimate stratagem--this map will require both.

Difficulty: 5 star, Price: $3.00
Artist: Homare (from Alpha System)
This map requires you to chase after targets, as special walls automatically open and close each turn. Because there are several Revenant targets, you'll have to divide your pursuit force wisely.

Artist: Kinu Nishimura (Street Fighter)
This map is geared towards expert players, pitting them against a floor of dangerous tiles that causes both friends and foes to drop to 1 HP at the start of each turn. How do you fight when everyone is at 1 HP? Do you heal or do you pair up? In any case, it's definitely not safe fighting at 1 HP all the time, especially when you're up against "special" enemies.
