This week, Japanese fans (and importers) can download the final DLC map (that has been announced) for Fire Emblem Fates.
The Invisible History is a two-part mission that occurs before the events of the main story and explains how three returning characters from Awakening ended up in the world of Fates.
Additionally, as its title eludes, it delves a bit into the history of the Invisible Kingdom, which the third route focuses on. As such, I personally recommend completing the third route before playing this mission.
Those who reach the mission’s end will earn a Fellblood Emblem (allows any male character to change to the Grandmaster class) and First Dragon Blood (allows any character to utilise Dragon Vein).
For those curious about the story, check out the story summary by Kirokan and script translation (up to the end of the first map) by teddybearyt!
Slightly earlier than I expected; today, Nintendo of Japan released the mysterious “3rd route” DLC expansion for Fire Emblem Fates.
Known as Fire Emblem Fates: Invisible Kingdom, this DLC is a full length storyline where the player does not side with Hoshido and Nohr, instead seeking the truth behind the titular Invisible Kingdom.
Check out the teaser here, courtesy of Nintendo.
In terms of difficulty, Invisible Kingdom lies in-between that of Hoshido and Nohr, with the ability to participate in optional battles like in Hoshido. This route is also characterised by its many map gimmicks.
To purchase Invisible Kingdom, you must select the “Pave a new future” option, which is the bottom-left option before loading a save file.
(If you own the Special Edition, Invisible Kingdom can be downloaded for free before July 2016.)
