Retail Version of Pokémon Rumble World Now Available in Stores The Nintendo 3DS Game Goes Physical For the First Time
REDMOND, Wash., April 29, 2016 – Pokémon Rumble World for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems, which finds players battling and befriending more than 700 Pokémon, is getting a physical retail version … and it’s available in stores today! Last year, Pokémon Rumble World launched as a digital-only game in Nintendo eShop on Nintendo 3DS. This new retail version contains all the same action-adventure gameplay, and is now available in stores at a suggested retail price of $29.99.
“We love giving our fans as many purchase options as possible,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s Executive Vice President of Sales & Marketing. “Players that love collecting physical games and all things Pokémon will now be able to add Pokémon Rumble World to their Nintendo 3DS collection.”
Playing the Pokémon Rumble World game is perfect for the Pokémon 20th celebration, as the game features more than 700 Pokémon. In the game, players control a Toy Pokémon and battle and befriend as many Pokémon as possible in dozens of stages in many different areas. The more Toy Pokémon players befriend, the better chance they have to defeat other Pokémon.
Using the StreetPass, SpotPass or “Call Someone Online” features (which, excluding StreetPass, require a wireless Internet connection), players can invite fellow players’ Mii characters into their castle town to assist them by providing helpful items. Players can even customize their Mii characters with outfits and a custom message.
Remember that Nintendo 3DS features parental controls that let adults manage the content their children can access. For more information about this and other features, visit http://www.nintendo.com/3ds.

New DLC Maps Headed to Fire Emblem Fates Starting May 5
Starting May 5, Fire Emblem Fates is getting new DLC maps that expand on the hit Nintendo 3DS game’s sprawling story and characters. The first map, I: In Endless Dreams, can be downloaded for only 49 cents, with subsequent maps launching weekly until June 9 and available for $1.99 each. Fans that want to automatically receive each new map as it releases can do so by purchasing Map Pack 2 for $7.99. Map Pack 2 content is priced at more than $10 when purchased individually. Even players who have purchased I: In Endless Dreams can still purchase Map Pack 2 to receive a discount when compared to buying the subsequent maps individually.
Unlike the contents of Map Pack 1, the stages included in Map Pack 2 tell an ongoing story. Across dimensions, other versions of the Hoshidan and Nohrian children are under attack. Born and raised in the Deeprealms, these fledgling warriors must now rise up to save themselves and their parents as they unravel the mystery of their adversaries. In this six-map series, units leveled up in the main game cannot lend support. Players must devise a strategy using a fresh team to reap the rewards, but only if all units survive. More information is available at http://fireemblemfates.nintendo.com/dlc/#mappack2.
The list of maps and their respective release dates and prices are as follows: - May 5-June 9 – Map Pack 2 ($7.99) - May 5 – I: In Endless Dreams (49 cents) - May 12 – II: Realms Collide ($1.99) - May 19 – III: The Changing Tide ($1.99) - May 26 – IV: Light’s Sacrifice ($1.99) - June 2 – V: Endless Dawn ($1.99) - June 9 – End: Lost in the Waves ($1.99)
As a bonus, Another Gift from Anna, which provides players with the Boots and Paragon items, is available to download for free on May 5 for players who already own the Fire Emblem Fates: Birthright or Fire Emblem Fates: Conquest games.
