You can’t say Nintendo isn’t supplying a ton of content for Fire Emblem Fates. On top of three separate games, extra DLC has been added to the mix to keep things fresh. Starting next week on May 5, the second wave of map packs will begin to arrive. You can buy the six-episode story as Map Pack 2 for $7.99 or you could buy each one separately and spend more money. Since these maps tell an ongoing story, it would probably be wise to just spring for the entire Map Pack.

Starting May 5, Fire Emblem Fates is getting new DLC maps that expand on the hit Nintendo 3DS game’s sprawling story and characters. The first map, I: In Endless Dreams, can be downloaded for only 49 cents, with subsequent maps launching weekly until June 9 and available for $1.99 each. Fans that want to automatically receive each new map as it releases can do so by purchasing Map Pack 2 for $7.99. Map Pack 2 content is priced at more than $10 when purchased individually. Even players who have purchased I: In Endless Dreams can still purchase Map Pack 2 to receive a discount when compared to buying the subsequent maps individually.Unlike the contents of Map Pack 1, the stages included in Map Pack 2 tell an ongoing story. Across dimensions, other versions of the Hoshidan and Nohrian children are under attack. Born and raised in the Deeprealms, these fledgling warriors must now rise up to save themselves and their parents as they unravel the mystery of their adversaries. In this six-map series, units leveled up in the main game cannot lend support. Players must devise a strategy using a fresh team to reap the rewards, but only if all units survive.
