Nintendo has announced that players can expand the adventure in Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia with five downloadable content packs.
These will introduce a chance to explore the hidden past of Valentia, earn more gold and experience, and recruit new playable characters, and can either be purchased individually or as a Season Pass.
At £39.99 (€44.99), the Season Pass will save, those that are interested, 30 percent compared to purchasing all pieces of content on their own. As well as this paid downloadable content, Nintendo will also receive free downloadable content for a limited time that will start on May 19th.
