Roy and Leaf DLC Heading to Fire Emblem: Awakening

on April 23, 2012 8:03 PM

Nintendo revealed two more pieces of DLC for upcoming Japanese SRPG Fire Emblem: Awakening over the weekend. These include Roy, the lead character from Fire Emblem: Fuuin no Tsurugi and Leaf, from Fire Emblem: Seisen no Keifu. Smash Bros. fans will recognize Roy from Melee, but otherwise, no American is expected to recognize either of these characters since their respective games were never localized. Go figure.

Unlike Hero King Marth, these DLC characters will not be free. Roy will cost ¥250(around $3) and Leaf will cost ¥350(around $4). That’s pretty cheap compared to console DLC, right? Let’s hope all this DLC (and the game itself, for that matter) eventually come stateside. Fire Emblem: Awakening launches in Japan on April 19th.
