New Fire Emblem Fates DLC Features The “One-And-Only” Anna

Fire Emblem If 9-23-2015 - 17

Fire Emblem Fates is hard at work with the DLC chapters already, with the first set of maps being released last month. Now the second set of DLC maps are getting prepped to release, and their focus is set clearly on the lovely Merchant Thief Anna.

The scans, courtesy of Dengeki, show a bit of a preview of what’s to come. A staple in the series, the red-haired thief will not only be recruitable from these DLC maps, but offers some gifts too – check out the release schedule below.

September 17th – Trial Grounds of the Divine General 

This map will get you a Crest of the Divine General, and is repeatable.

The map itself is designed with a motif based around Queen Elincia from Radiant Dawn.

September 24th – Anna the Thief 

Completion of this map will allow you to recruit Anna, though only on your first time through.

This map was designed for the Anna from Fire Emblem Awakening.

October 1st – Trial Grounds of the Gunman

Clearing this map will get you the Artillery Shooter, and is repeatable.

It based on “Grust’s Wooden Horses”, Chapter 13 from Fire Emblem: Ankoku Ryu to Hikari no Tsurugi, or Shadow Dragon in the West.

October 1st – Anna’s Gift

This map will be free DLC, with a unique reward upon clearing. It will be available after clearing Trial Grounds of the Gunman and Trial Grounds of the Witch, and will let you choose either the Artillery Shooter or Magic Circle as a reward. However, you’ll get the reward the first time through.

October 8th – Trial Grounds of the Witch

Clearing this map will garner you the Magic Circle, and is repeatable.

The map is based on the “Osorezan” or “Terror Mountain” section of Chapter 4 in Fire Emblem Gaiden.

All of these DLC maps will be available separately for 250 yen (not including Anna’s Gift, which is free), or in a bundle for a reduced cost of 900 yen.

Fire Emblem Fates is set for a Western release sometime in 2016 for the 3DS.

I'm a pretty chill guy. Huge video game fan, but a bigger anime fan. I also love to write - obviously.

    I really think Fire Emblem should stick with free Trials Map like in FE6 and FE9 for end game, and new campaigns for DLC. Mostly what if…? stories or stories that tell the plot fo new characters or fill the old backstory.
    This just seems like grinding DLC like in Awakening.

    I believe the grinding DLCs were already released in July. These are more like the DLC that unlocked the Dread Fighter and Bride classes. At least the Anna map is free…

    And here I was hoping this wouldn’t be bogged down with pointless DLC like Awakening was.

    At least do a better job of letting the player know when they should do the DLC. I decided to save the DLC in Awakening until the very end, which was a huge mistake, as that meant I completely steamrolled most of it.

    I think they should launch a 4th path DLC were they keep the Nohr mechanics but make it easier, although I don’t know if they can still pull more story out of the game.
    I just want IS to stuck more to the Jugdral, Elibe and Telllius style and stop putting stuff from Gaiden and Sacred Stones.

    Yeah and on top it’s all sold individually and the costs add up a lot.
    The way FE handles DLC is one of my least favorites among nintendo games.

    Is this being censored to hell and back like awakening was?
