Fire Emblem: Awakening’s latest DLC release Summer Scramble lets players see a selection of characters in their swimwear, but in the case of Tharja, Nintendo of America decided it didn’t want to show too much of the Dark Mage.
Meanwhile in Japan, Nintendo has no problems with allowing licensees to create these lewd Tharja figures. At least the company didn’t edit this out, which is what everyone really wanted from the Summer Scramble DLC:
Upcoming Fire Emblem: Awakening DLC
This clip starts off reviewing the downloadable content that’s already released for Fire Emblem: Awakening, but it also covers upcoming map packs and their rewards (including new classes like the Dread Fighter and Bride).
That EXPonential Growth map would’ve helped a lot in my efforts last weekend to give my Fire Emblem children a better life. Kids these days (or during the days in some far off future) have it so easy.
New round of Fire Emblem: Awakening DLC out
Fire Emblem: Awakening’s first paid downloadable content is now available at your local Outrealm Gate, dubbed Champions of Yore 2 and featuring series favorite Roy.
You can pay $2.50 for the map, or spend $4 to buy the Champions Pack. The latter contains the first and currently free map, Champions of Yore 2, and the third not-yet released chapter with Micaiah.
The fantastic artwork above of “Marth,” by the way, comes from Poiv.
The last New Super Mario Bros. 2 DLC packs are out
One of the $2.50 packs is a set of three “Impossible” levels, which you can sample in the GIFs above. As you can see, they’re not messin’ around — these stages are sincerious. There’s also a pack of “Mystery Adventure” courses with lots of hidden and alternate paths. Jeremy Parish has a great breakdown of the two sets, as well as some thoughts on the evolution of New Super Mario Bros. 2’s DLC
eShop brought out the Christmas HAM early, by the way, with more than a dozen releases (new games and downloadable editions of retail titles). You can see the list of titles, plus a calendar for upcoming games on this handy page.
Oh, and Nintendo TVii should be out now for Wii U, along with its accompanying Reggie Asks roundtable interview with the app’s developers.
Who wants free New Super Mario Bros. 2 levels? Nintendo has released a free Gold Classics Pack that you can download now. It’s filled with three Coin Rush courses inspired by iconic levels from the original Super Mario Bros. and Super Mario Bros. 3. Grab it soon because Nintendo will charge $2.50 for it starting February 1.
Infinite Koopa bounce trick found in New Super Mario Bros. 2 DLC. Though the video here doesn’t show that many coins coming from it, you could conceivably get many hundreds of coins in this “Nerve-Wrack Pack” level by bouncing on Koopas as Gold Mario, as each bounce gets you 50 coins.

Trailer for the first Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy downloadable content. These eight songs will be available on the eShop in Japan this week for 150 yen ($1.90) each. Square Enix plans to support the game with DLC releases every 2-3 weeks. In Japan, that is. Here, Square Enix plans to _______ (they haven’t said anything).
Just in case anyone with a new $170 3DS also picks up Dead or Alive Dimensions, Tecmo Koei is restarting the game’s DLC schedule, giving the daily costume downloads a second encore. From August 15 through September 17, a new costume will be delivered via SpotPass every day to DOA Dimensions owners who have opted to let the game do so. And why wouldn’t you?
When DOA Dimensions first came out, I thought it was remarkable that the 3DS fighting games, including this and SSFIV 3D, were the only ones even trying to get StreetPass/SpotPass functionality right. Just a few months later, those games seem remarkable just on the basis of being games that were released for the 3DS. :/
