Fire Emblem Fates Getting Special Edition 3DS, Map Pack DLC

Nintendo has announced a special white-and-black edition of the 3DS to launch alongside Fire Emblem Fates--but it doesn't include the game!


On top of the dual release, Fire Emblem Fates will be getting its own branded New Nintendo 3DS XL system--without the game.

Called the "Fire Emblem Fates Edition New Nintendo 3DS XL," the white-and-black handheld will launch on February 19 alongside both versions of the game. But, you'll have to buy one of the two games (Birthright or Conquest) separately for $39.99. Nintendo also promised new map packs to come weekly starting the week of launch, which can be purchased individually or as a bundle for $17.99. That bundle is called "Map Pack 1," though, so Nintendo is clearly ready to make more.

Conquest and Birthright will both let you purchase and download the other for a discounted $19.99 once you've completed chapter 6. Revelation, a third story, will launch as DLC on March 10 for $19.99 for those who already own one of the versions as well. Finally, all three games, an artbook, and a 3DS XL pouch will be bundled for $79.99. 

So, if you're curious, the cheapest way to get absolutely everything Fire Emblem is to buy the branded 3DS ($200), the game bundle ($80), and the map pack ($18), for a grand total of $298.

      Pretty excited for this. With the Amazon preorder discount, the price for all three "games" comes down to $32 + 20 + 20 = $72. So not bad, depending on how much content is in each.

        It almost seems like it could be TOO MUCH Fire Emblem. Like, I'd love to see all three stories, but I'm not sure I have the time to get through that many of them back to back to back.
