Nintendo details release dates and more on upcoming RPGs

Jason Clement

Today Nintendo held a press event where they revealed quite a bit about the upcoming RPGs that are coming to 3DS this year.



Fire Emblem Fates Special Edition 3DS Announced


Not surprising at all, but definitely very cool -- Nintendo has announced an official limited edition New 3DS to celebrate the release of Fire Emblem Fates on February 19. The Special Edition Fire Emblem Fates New 3DS will feature black and white art based on the game and will retail for $199.99.


Sadly, neither version of the game is included, however. Both versions of the game will retail for $39.99 separately. Additionally, the third story, Fire Emblem: Revelations will launch as DLC for $19.99 on March 10th for gamers who have bought Birthright or Conquest.


Also, Nintendo announced that new map DLC will be released regularly starting with the first on February 19. Players will be able to buy them separately or all-at-once as a discounted Map Pack 1 bundle for $17.99. With prices like that, it seems like Nintendo is poised to make major bank on this title.





Bravely Second: End Layer coming in April with its own Collector's Edition


Yup, it's true - Bravely Second: End Layer has finally been dated for release on April 15. The game will also be receiving a collector's edition that includes the following:

  • The game
  • 10-song original soundtrack2
  • 250-page deluxe art book

Also, a demo version of the game called Bravely Second: End Layer – The Ballad of the Three Cavaliers will be available to download shortly before the game comes out and offers its own unique story as well as new jobs and areas to explore.





More RPGs dated for release in 2016
