DLC plans detailed as well.
Fire Emblem: Awakening, the first Fire Emeblem title on the 3DS and the next entry in the Intelligent Systems developed franchise, is almost out, and Nintendo has now revealed a few juicy details on the strategy game.
Nintendo has detailed feature such as StreetPass and SpotPass for Fire Emblem: Awakening, while also detailing the game’s DLC model that the publisher will follow, releasing maps and such for the game regularly.
Here are the details:
- Downloadable Content: Maps will be available to purchase and download starting on launch day, and others will be distributed regularly. The first downloadable map will be available for free for a limited time only and will serve as an introduction to the steady weekly stream of additional maps. The additional maps will be offered at different price points. Players with a copy of Fire Emblem Awakening and a broadband Internet connection will be able to access the downloadable content through the Outrealm Gate located on the in-game world map, which will be unlocked after the player completes the fifth mission in the main story mode. The content will include additional information about new class types, skills, playable characters, maps with new storylines and special maps that let players earn more experience points, gold or other rare items.
- SpotPass: In addition to content that can be purchased from within the game, Nintendo will also distribute new content via SpotPass for free. SpotPass content will be distributed in the launch time frame and will feature new maps with new storylines, characters and items.
- StreetPass: Fire Emblem Awakening players can set up a StreetPass Team and exchange certain game data with other players. The StreetPass Team is made up of 10 units from an existing team in story mode. Players can also edit team names and create custom messages for other players to see. StreetPass characters will randomly appear on the world map, giving players the option to recruit the team leader with gold, buy any weapons or items the team is carrying or battle and win to recruit the leader for free. Like the random battles in the main story mode, the player will have full control of battles in StreetPass mode. Players will also earn “renown” based on battles won. A players’ “renown” is visible to other players through StreetPass.
Fire Emblem: Awakening is going to get a demo on the 3DS eShop on January 17th, and the full game releases on February 4th.
