For the record, I can already see the inflated eBay listings in Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia’s future thanks to the impressive Limited Edition bundle. Announced earlier today by Nintendo, the Limited Edition packs quite a few accoutrements in for an affordable price.
Seen in the image below, purchasers can exepct to find a Valentia hardcover artbook, the official soundtrack (on CD), a three-pin set featuring Alm, Celica and Marth, and — of course — the game itself. Also added to this bundle is a reversible cover sheet that mimics the original packaging for those who had the Japanese original, Fire Emblem Gaiden.
Update: Nintendo PR has comfirmed with DualShockers that the reversible cover is exclusive to the Limited Edition bundle.
Even better, the entire package is an affordable $59.99 ($20 above the standard price) — provided you get it when it launches at unannounced retailers on May 19, 2017.
Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia was first announced at Nintendo’s Fire Emblem Direct in mid-January. As mentioned above, the game is a remake of Fire Emblem Gaiden, incorporating cinematic and free-roaming 3D dungeon exploring. Only recently the first screenshots of the game began to emerge.
Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia launches exclusively on Nintendo 3DS on May 19, 2017.
