The next game in the Fire Emblem series, called Fire Emblem Fates in western territories, was announced for 3DS this spring, and after this week’s Nintendo Direct it has a release date. All the different versions of it.
Fire Emblem Fates is split up, Pokémon style, into two versions, Conquest and Birthright, sold separately. A third path, called Revelations, will be available to those who purchase one or both titles, and will cost $19.99. Each of the two versions will cost $39.99 on their own, but a special edition including all three stories will be available for $79.99, and it will include an artbook and 3DS pouch.
It’s a bit confusing at first glance, and it’ll be interesting to see how consumers respond to the split stories and special edition when the game releases in a few months on February 19, 2016.
