New information has emerged on 3DS game Fire Emblem Fates. A New Nintendo 3DS XL is to be released, which features art inspired by the series’ cover art. The system itself does not come with the game, however, in a similar vein to Hyrule Warriors Legends, not being included with its special edition system. Having been the case twice now, it seems like this is going to be a continuing trend from Nintendo.
Those who have played Smsh Bros. for Wii U and 3DS should know that protagonist Corrin will be available as a downloadable fighter even before Fates is released. The move is reminiscent of how Marth and Roy appeared in Melee before Fire Emblem was introduced to mainstream western audiences.
The Fire Emblem Fates 3DS XL will run $200, the standard price for the system.
