Today, we have two separate Fire Emblem-related updates regarding… well, updates.
This update fixes a bug that prevents the use of Amiibos, as well as general fixes that “enhance the playing experience”. As with all Nintendo updates, this update is required to use the game’s Internet functions.
Secondly, Super Smash Bros. for 3DS/Wii U fans can look forward to a Chrom Mii Fighter (Swordsman) costume, which will be available from 31st July 2015. It’s not Chrom himself, but it’s better than nothing, right?
