Nintendo announced this past week that the May 19 U.S. release of Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia for the 3DS will also include a limited edition bundle.
Included is the game, a hardcover art book, soundtrack, a character pin set of heroes Alm, Celica and Marth, and a reversible cover sheet reflecting the game’s cover art for the original Famicom version.
First announced by Nintendo on January 18, Fire Emblem Echoes is a re-imagining of the Famicom game, Fire Emblem: Gaiden, which never saw a North American release.
The story centers around childhood friends Alm and Celica as they try to bring peace to the war-torn kingdom of Valentia. Players will follow both heroes as they try to lead separate armies to victory in the game’s classic turn-based combat. Some players may recognize the two from the DLC map for Fire Emblem: Awakening where Alm embodied the “Dread Warrior” class.
The bundle will be available at a suggested retail price of $59.99 at specific retailers. The standard edition will be $39.99.
