DLC details also revealed.

In a press release today, Nintendo announced a new special edition Fire Emblem Fates 3DS XL. The system will cost $199.99, and will launch alongside Fire Emblem Fates on February 19. However, it will not include a copy of the game.

Fire Emblem Fates will include two different versions of the game, Birthright and Conquest. They are each $39.99, but you can purchase the second for $19.99 via download. A third DLC story, Revelation, will be available digitally on March 10 for $19.99 for anyone who already owns a copy of the game. A special edition will also be available that includes all three games on a single game card, an artbook and a Nintendo 3DS XL pouch for $79.99.

"In Fire Emblem Fates: Birthright, players battle a corrupted king. And in Fire Emblem Fates: Conquest, a misguided kingdom must be changed from within," the post reads. "Each path is a complete story and a complete game. Playing both will show players two different sides of one brutal conflict."

Nintendo also highlighted the game's future DLC, which will come in the form of new maps, "released on a regular basis."

"When the game launches, further downloadable content in the form of new maps will also be released on a regular basis, with the first map launching on Feb. 19," Nintendo said in a press release today. "Players can choose to buy each of these maps individually, or purchase Map Pack 1 for $17.99 to get access to them all at a discount once they are released."

Nintendo also promises that fans of role-playing games can expect a continued trend of "high-quality RPGs."

"Fans of role-playing games have just received a boost to their excitement stat," said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America's Executive Vice President of Sales & Marketing. "Nintendo platforms have always been home to high-quality RPGs, and with even more games launching in 2016, this trend is set to continue in a big way."
