Fire Emblem Fates special Edition 3DS XL, weekly map updates

New Fire Emblem gets weekly DLC, and a special edition 3DS XL.

Nintendo's upcoming Fire Emblem Fates will get its own special 3DS XL, and it looks absolutely splendid. Take a look below.

The system can be purchased for $199.99, but that's all you get if you buy it. Unfortunately, this handheld doesn't include the game itself, which will have to be purchased separately.

Nintendo  announced DLC for the upcoming title. Weekly map updates for Fire Emblem Fates will be available, starting on the game's release date of February 19th. This follows suit with the previous title in the series, the well-received Fire Emblem Awakening, which also received numerous map updates.

It's an interesting choice not to bundle a game with a special edition handheld - specifically one designed around the game itself. However, it is nice to see Nintendo continue to offer extra content alongside their new titles - especially as they begin their transition to their next big console.
