A week has passed since the (apparently) final piece of DLC for Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia was released.
Now that we’ve seen everything the game has to offer, we’d like to discuss and showcase the various inaccessible content found hidden in the game’s code.
For those unaware, Fire Emblem–like many other games–often contains unused content left behind by the developers. Normally one cannot view this content, but this is no obstacle for knowledgeable ROM hackers.
Anyway, below, we’ve gathered a preliminary list of all the major discoveries since the game released many months ago. Due to the nature of this article, there will be unmarked spoilers.
Today, the final piece of DLC for Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia is available to download in Japan and the West. (As soon as the eShop updates in each respective region.)
As we’ve reported in the past, Cipher Companions features 2 maps that, together, allow you to recruit the four Cipher mascots to your party: Emma, Randal (formerly known as Lando), Yuzu and Shade.
This is a very interesting turn of events given that the Cipher card game–where these characters come from–is currently only released in Japan and even the English DLC descriptions acknowledge this.
In any case, you can find the new characters’ profiles and detailed breakdown below!
Earlier today, Fire Emblem Cipher fans were presented with the Series 9 pre-release livestream, which our Cipher expert Kirie will cover in full later on.
Of note, we have some new pictures from the Cipher collaboration DLC for Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia, which launches on the same day as Series 9, on 22nd June 2017, in Japan and the West.
For those unaware, the four Cipher mascots–Emma, Shade, Yuzu and Lando–will be available as playable characters via Cipher Legends I and Cipher Legends II. More details can be found in our previous articles.
Above, we have the finished artworks for Emma and Shade, the former of which was revealed during an earlier livestream, while the latter was still half-finished at the time.
Next we have the official artworks for Yuzu and Lando, which are both completely new.
Finally, we have some in-game screenshots showing the dialogue portraits. Presumably these are from the battle maps and/or the support conversations.
Just a small heads up for Fire Emblem Echoes players: the fourth free DLC “Mila’s Bounty 4” is available to download starting from today.
Despite being promised as weekly DLC for a limited period, Mila’s Bounty skipped the previous week for some reason. Perhaps to space out the DLC before the final piece– Cipher Companions–arrives on 22nd June 2017.
In any case, this DLC provides access to the second Pitchfork item. After this, there’s only one more Mila’s Bounty, which provides the third and final Pitchfork. You’d better plan your potential Villagers wisely, if you haven’t already done so!
