Fire Emblem: Awakening DLC Price Plans Are Go!
As American 3DS fans mobilise their handheld forces, details emerge on the pricing structure of the DLC to come.
There might have been a few teething troubles on the way, but after a long wait following our Japanese counterparts, Fire Emblem: Awakening has arrived.
Or at least, it’s arrived in America! Europe is sadly still waiting, but at least we know it’s on its way. In the meantime, Siliconera has dished out some news about the downloadable content pricing plans for the game.
As you’re likely already aware, the initial batch of DLC, Champions Of Yore 1, is completely free for you lucky early purchasers of the game. Bear in mind this free content, which adds fan-favourite Marth to the game, is only free until March 5th.
Champions Of Yore 2 adds Roy to the mix, and is available for $2.50. Meanwhile, the Champions Pack is $4.00 and contains not only Champions of Yore 1 and 2, but also the as yet unreleased Champions Of Yore 3.
The third Yore DLC will show up in your Purchase History when it is released in the near future, meaning that by buying the Champions Pack you’re effectively pre-paying for it. It’s going to be interesting to see how many gamers not only plump for this downloadable content, but also whether they’ll buy the three-pack or make individual purchases.
It’s also good to finally have some prices to ascribe to this content. Once the game makes its anticipated arrival in Europe too, it’s going to be intriguing to see if Nintendo follow a similar pricing structure in Euros and Stirling.
Of course, the Yore DLC packs are hopefully just the tip of a rather vast iceberg, since Japanese 3DS fans have already enjoyed a wide array of optional downloadable content since they got their hands on Awakening. As always, we’ll be keeping our eyes on the game as it progresses.
Will you make sure to get your free Marth DLC?
