If you’re getting the game for Christmas or you’ve been considering getting the DLC, this is a great opportunity. As for those of us who got the DLC beforehand, well, at least we got to play it earlier!

The best bit is that all DLC is included, which means the Conquest, Birthright and Revelation story paths and both of the Map Packs are all eligible–a double bargain considering they’re already discounted.

Below, we have a helpful chart of all the discount DLC and some quick thoughts about each, in case you’re wondering which ones to go for.

Nintendo UK’s FE Retrospective and Facebook Page

Today, Nintendo UK released a short video detailing the history of the Fire Emblem series in Europe.

While there’s nothing particular new for diehard fans (and a few incorrect or misleading facts), it’s nice to see Nintendo trying to hype up the series in the launch up to Christmas.

In addition, Nintendo has started up an official Facebook page for the Fire Emblem series (for the UK).

Although this can be seen as a push for Fire Emblem Fates, which we imagine is still selling well, we do wonder if this is all related to the upcoming Fire Emblem mobile game launching in early 2017.

Especially as the page promises to share news for the series–and there’s not much else on the radar. Of course, news of a new mainline entry wouldn’t be amiss!

As usual, Ryota Kawade and Young were our hosts, and they were joined by Eri Suzuki, Soleil’s VA. The spirit of the livestream was very festive! They started off by opening a box to showcase some of the promotion items included, such as promo sleeves, holo marker cards, and preview promos showing Seliph and Chrom from the upcoming S8 set.
