US: Fire Emblem Fates New Nintendo 3DS XL And Bravely Second Collector’s Edition Among Announcements



Nintendo provided new details about several of its upcoming role-playing games for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems. This included the announcement of a special Fire Emblem Fates Edition New Nintendo 3DS XL system launching Feb. 19 and the reveal of a Collector’s Edition for Bravely Second: End Layer, which includes the upcoming sequel to the acclaimed Bravely Default game that launches on April 15.

“Fans of role-playing games have just received a boost to their excitement stat,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s Executive Vice President of Sales & Marketing. “Nintendo platforms have always been home to high-quality RPGs, and with even more games launching in 2016, this trend is set to continue in a big way.”

The Fire Emblem Fates Edition New Nintendo 3DS XL system (game sold separately) launches on Feb. 19 at a suggested retail price of $199.99 and features gorgeous art inspired by the game on the front of the hardware. Players can choose to purchase one of two versions when the Fire Emblem Fates games launch on Feb. 19 at a suggested retail price of $39.99 each. In Fire Emblem Fates: Birthright, players battle a corrupted king. And in Fire Emblem Fates: Conquest, a misguided kingdom must be changed from within. Each path is a complete story and a complete game. Playing both will show players two different sides of one brutal conflict. After completing Chapter 6, players will have the option to download the other version of the game and experience a new adventure for only $19.99. In addition, a third story, Fire Emblem Fates: Revelation, which finds the game’s main character choosing neither the “Conquest” nor “Birthright” path in the story, launches as DLC on March 10 for $19.99 for players that already own the “Conquest” or “Birthright” version of the game. A special edition will also be available that includes all three games on a single game card, an artbook and a Nintendo 3DS XL pouch at a suggested retail price of $79.99. When the game launches, further downloadable content in the form of new maps will also be released on a regular basis, with the first map launching on Feb. 19. Players can choose to buy each of these maps individually, or purchase Map Pack 1 for $17.99 to get access to them all at a discount once they are released.

When Bravely Second: End Layer launches exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems on April 15, a Collector’s Edition will also launch alongside it at a suggested retail price of $69.99. The Collector’s Edition includes the massive game, a 10-song original soundtrack and gorgeous 250-page deluxe art book. A demo version of the game, Bravely Second: End Layer – The Ballad of the Three Cavaliers, will launch in the Nintendo eShop prior to the full game’s launch. This demo includes a unique story different than the one found in Bravely Second: End Layer, as well as new jobs and areas to explore. StreetPass tags and bonuses from the demo will also carry over to the main game.

In addition to Fire Emblem Fates and Bravely Second: End Layer, role-playing fans are in for an absolute treat in the first part of the year, as a wide variety of RPGs will soon launch for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems. These games include FINAL FANTASY Fantasy Explorers from Square Enix on Jan. 26, Project X Zone 2 from Bandai Namco Entertainment America, Inc. on Feb. 16 and the original Pokémon games (Pokémon Red Version, Pokémon Blue Version, as well as Pokémon Yellow Version: Special Pikachu Edition) in the Nintendo eShop on Feb. 27. Dragon Quest VII: Fragments of the Forgotten Past will launch this summer, with Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King launching later this year.

  1. “The Fire Emblem Fates Edition New Nintendo 3DS XL system (game sold separately)…”


    I don’t even know what to say.

    1. Jaded Professor Ridley Bowie X3 {R.I.P. David Bowie, the One & Only Goblin King! R.I.P. Alan Rickman, the Awesome Professor Snape!}

      Looks like I’ll be going digital then if those costumes for preordering the Deluxe Set in the UK won’t be coming to the US.

        1. Jaded Professor Ridley Bowie X3 {R.I.P. David Bowie, the One & Only Goblin King! R.I.P. Alan Rickman, the Awesome Professor Snape!}

          Aside from having access to the game without having to switch out 3DS cards, not that I’m aware of.

  2. I’m seriously conflicted at the moment. I dunno whether to purchase one cartridge of the game and download the other one for cheaper or two to buy both because of the box arts. >.>

  3. So evil! They totally knew that they should open Special Edition pre-orders of the game early and wait until everyone put in their hard earned money to pre-order it. AND THEN! After everyone bought it, they come around with the Special Edition 3DS. Dude, no…so done with these money grabs from them. I can barely see the designs anyway.

  4. Is it just me or did Fire Emblem get super hella complicated? It’s like ‘Doc Brown needs to bust out his chalk board and start a flow chart to explain the game options’ level complicated. Might try one of them, since I enjoyed ‘FE:A’, but not sold on the 2 separate stories plus dlc pitch.

  5. Stoked for Bravely Second.

    On a side note, I went to upgrade my Wii U today to find it was already up to date…😲

    Hella stoked about that as well! If of course version 5.5.1 U is the latest one.

  6. I’m gonna be mad salty if I can’t get the Bravely Second collector’s edition preordered, it’ll make me look really half assed with only 1 of the 2 games’ CEs on my shelf lol

  7. Jaded Professor Ridley Bowie X3 {R.I.P. David Bowie, the One & Only Goblin King! R.I.P. Alan Rickman, the Awesome Professor Snape!}

    Wait, what!? This was unexpected. We’re getting Bravely Second sooner than I thought!

    What about that costume set that the UK is getting for preordering the deluxe edition? Are those of us in the US not getting them!? *eye twitch* Ugh! This has to stop. If it’s not the UK getting screwed, it’s us in the US. This crap has got to stop all around.
