Nintendo confirmed during today's Direct presentation that, as in Japan, there will be two separate $40 versions of Fates, Birthright and Conquest, each with their own complete story. Purchasing one allows you to buy a $20 digital version of the other, while there will also be a third version called Revelation coming after launch.

Additionally, a special edition of Fates will be available at retail for $80. This consists of all three versions of the game, an artbook, and a 3DS XL carrying pouch.

Fire Emblem Fates launches for 3DS on February 19 and will be followed by a variety of DLC. The first DLC map will be available for free.
