  REDMOND, Wash.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Fans that want to level up their Fire

  Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia experience when the game

  launches exclusively for the Nintendo

  3DS family of systems on May 19 can do so by picking up the game’s

  Limited Edition bundle, launching the same day. The Fire Emblem

  Echoes: Shadows of Valentia Limited Edition bundle includes the

  game; a hardcover Valentia Artbook; a Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of

  Valentia Sound Selection CD; a Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of

  Valentia Pin Set depicting characters Alm, Celica and Marth; and a

  reversible cover sheet that looks like the packaging for the original

  Famicom game this new one is based on. It will be available at a

  suggested retail price of $59.99 at select retailers.

  Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia reimagines Fire Emblem

  Gaiden, a Famicom game that was previously only released in Japan.

  This new version of the game sports modern graphics, cinematics and, in

  a first for the series, free-roaming 3D dungeon environments.

  Also launching on May 19 are the Alm

  and Celica

  amiibo

  figures, available only as a set at a suggested retail price of $24.99.

  When used in the game, these amiibo will activate their own exclusive

  dungeons, allowing heroes to earn items and level up their armies

  further by defeating bosses. By selecting Mila’s Turnwheel from the menu

  on the overworld map, they will also be able to take advantage of their

  Alm and Celica amiibo in battle. During combat, players can sacrifice a

  portion of Alm or Celica’s health in order to summon a

  computer-controlled illusory hero, which will act as a temporary ally

  for a single turn.

  As Alm and Celica get stronger, their stats can be saved to their

  respective amiibo, allowing their summoned unit to grow in strength

  alongside them. In addition, all Fire Emblem amiibo from the Super

  Smash Bros. series can be used to summon an illusory hero of that

  character, allowing players to seek assistance from spectral visages of

  Marth, Ike, Roy, Robin, Lucina and the upcoming Corrin amiibo. All other

  currently available amiibo are also compatible, and will summon an

  additional monster to the battleground to assist players in battle,

  providing some much-needed help in case of a strategic emergency.

  This game is the latest in the long-running and growing strategy-RPG

  series, and comes hot on the heels of the recently released

  free-to-start game Fire

  Emblem Heroes on smart devices. Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows

  of Valentia will see players take control of the two separate armies

  of Alm and Celica as their differing quests attempt to achieve the

  unified goal of bringing peace to the land of Valentia. Battles in the Fire

  Emblem series see players take their small force of recruited

  soldiers against increasingly powerful armies in turn-based battles that

  require careful tactical planning, as mistakes or failed attacks will

  see units become exposed and vulnerable to enemy attack.

  The Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia Limited Edition

  bundle launches in stores on May 19 at a suggested retail price of

  $59.99. The stand-alone version of the game will also be available at a

  suggested retail price of $39.99. For more information about the game,
