Nintendo has revealed when new downloadable maps will be available for 3DS strategy game Fire Emblem Fates. The first, called "In Endless Dreams," launches on May 5 and will cost 49 cents.

Following this, new maps will be available weekly for $1.99 each until June 9. By purchasing Map Pack 2 for $7.99, all of these DLC maps will become available automatically and, in total, will cost less than buying them individually.

"The stages included in Map Pack 2 tell an ongoing story," Nintendo explained in a press release. "Across dimensions, other versions of the Hoshidan and Nohrian children are under attack. Born and raised in the Deeprealms, these fledgling warriors must now rise up to save themselves and their parents as they unravel the mystery of their adversaries.

"In this six-map series, units leveled up in the main game cannot lend support. Players must devise a strategy using a fresh team to reap the rewards, but only if all units survive."

A list of maps and release dates can be found below.

  • May 5-June 9: Map Pack 2 ($7.99)
  • May 5 - I" In Endless Dreams (49 cents)
  • May 12 - II: Realms Collide ($1.99)
  • May 19 - III: The Changing Tide ($1.99)
  • May 26 - IV: Light’s Sacrifice ($1.99)
  • June 2 - V: Endless Dawn ($1.99)
  • June 9 - End: Lost in the Waves ($1.99)

For those not interested in maps, "Another Gift from Anna" will also be available for free on May 5. It includes boots and Paragon items, and can be downloaded by anyone who owns Fire Emblem: Fates Birthright or Conquest.

Fire Emblem Fates launched in the US in February and was available in three versions, each telling a different side of the story. Reviews for each version can be found below. The game is scheduled to launch in Europe on on May 20.

"Charging players 80$ for the full version of a handheld game wasn't enough, charge them some more for maps!"

I gotta say that these pay dlc sound terrible (and difficult). The only one that has a worthwhile reward is the last one.

The pricing of Fire Emblem Awakening DLC was absolutely horrific, and this looks to be the same.
