It looks like Nintendo has finally caught up with the rest of the gaming industry with it comes to their DLC policies. Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valencia’s season pass cost more than the base game…
Remember when everyone kept yelling at Nintendo and demanding that they become a more modern gaming company? Do you remember how we kept telling them how out of touch they were with today’s gamers? That last part is still true, but Nintendo has (unfortunately) come up with the times and started adding season passes to their games. First it was Breath of The Wild with a $20 season pass. And now the latest Fire Emblem game has a insane $44.99 price tag. The base game is only $40 and if you want the Amiibos that’s a extra $25 for both of them. Add that all together and you’ve got $109.99. That’s like buying a Call of Duty game with the season pass.
If we go by previous Fire Emblem games then this season pass isn’t worth it. Most Fire Emblem games offer us some new characters (do we really need to add to the already bloated roster of new Fire Emblem games?), items, and maps to grind on. After looking over the content that’s in this season pass I don’t want it. I don’t think paying $45 for extra characters, and maps is worth it. I don’t like that Nintendo is going down this road and following other developers (Ubisoft, and EA) with their DLC policies. I’m going to assume that Xenoblade 2, and Mario Odyssey will also have worthless season passes too.
What do you think of this? Are you on board with Fire Emblem’s season pass?
