Starting today, owners of the Japanese version of Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia can access the penultimate–and biggest–wave of DLC.
This includes 10 brand new Overclasses via the “Sealed Altar” set and 4 new story missions via the “Prelude of the Deliverance” set.
There’s also the final free DLC, “Gift from the Goddess 5”, which awards a third Villager’s Fork plus a Talisman item that permanently raises Resistance by 3.
Fans in the West don’t have to wait long since the Overclasses arrive tomorrow, while the Deliverance missions will be available a week later.
Below is a detailed breakdown of the new content added today.
Last week, we finally got some concrete details about the mysterious Cipher collaboration DLC coming to Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia.
Note: Artwork is from Cipher.
A few days later, on 15th May, the Japanese website updated with some additional details about this DLC. Similar information can be found on the North America website.
Firstly, it has been confirmed that the two pieces of DLC are battle maps, as indicated by the DLC being 2-star (Medium) difficulty. After completion of each map, you will recruit the corresponding pair of mascots.
On top of that, each DLC includes brand new support conversations between the corresponding pairs and base conversations for each mascot. Most likely these conversations will be fully voiced just like the ones already found in-game.
To round off the deal, there are new exclusive items that can be earned during the first completion: Trainee’s Lance (Emma), Whimsical Lance (Lando) and Warrior’s Sword (Yuzu). Not to mention the data-mined exclusive arts and spells.
Full details can be found below. Finally, for those unacquainted with the Cipher mascots and interested to learn about them, we’ve put together an introduction just for you!
Following yesterday’s DLC details for the Japanese version of Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia, the updated English official website has delivered plans for DLC in the West.
First, let’s start with the good news. After the disappointing way that Fates’s DLC “ended”, it appears we’ll be receiving all 22 DLC that Japan is getting. This even extends to the Cipher collaboration DLC, which is very surprising.
(While the North American website hasn’t revealed that the Cipher DLC is coming, the UK/European website is a lot more open about it.)
The bad news is that the DLC isn’t… cheap, but we suspect most of you expected that much. That said, if you want to save money, there will be season pass that costs 44.99 USD/63.49 CAD/39.99 GBP/44.99 EUR, saving you 30%.
Fortunately, there will be weekly free DLC in the form of “Mila’s Bounty”, which provide access to rare and exclusive items.
Anyway, we already covered the DLC in depth not long ago, but if you’re interested to see how it compares to the Japanese DLC, carry on reading!
