Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia Limited Edition Unboxing

The date is 19/05/2017, and Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia has been released today. I pre-ordered the Limited Edition, and sure enough that arrived today. As such, this post will be dedicated to the unboxing of the Limited Edition.
I’ll only be showing it off with photos. I don’t really have the means nor a decent location to film a video unboxing, so I’ll just use pictures taken with my phone’s camera.I’ll start by showing the box that everything came in.

The box was a fair bit bigger than I had initially anticipated

Now let’s take a look at all of the contents within the box together.

Next up, it’s time to take a look at the individual items. Might as well start with the game itself.

Cartridge

All right, with the actual game looked at, let’s move on and see what the other stuff included within the Limited Edition is like. Might as well start with the first item you see when you lift the flap up to get into the box.

Pin Badges

I really like these pin badges of Alm, Celica and Marth

When it comes to video game soundtracks, I like to think that Fire Emblem is up there as one of the best. Clearly whoever put the Limited Edition together shares a similar sentiment, as they have included a soundtrack CD.

Sounds of Echoes

The Sounds of Echoes CD contains 30 tracks

There are ‘classic’ and ‘echoes’ versions of songs on the CD

Whilst the Sounds of Echoes CD provides aural stimulation, the Valentia Artbook gives you something to pretty to look at – when you’re not playing the actual game, that is. I’ll include a couple of shots of pages from the artbook, too.

That brings us on to the final two items:

Now, for those who believe that amiibo should just be bought and never taken out of the package, you might want to look away now. For everyone else, let’s see what Alm and Celica look like after they’ve been liberated from their plastic prisons.

That’s everything. I’ve been wanting to do a post like this for a while – I did even consider it back when Fire Emblem Fates was released last year – but I never really got around to it. Now, however, I took the chance to get some photos of the stuff as I pulled it out of the box and have shared them here.
If you’re curious about more Fire Emblem stuff, why not take a look at its history, or check out my post on yuri in Fire Emblem?
I guess that all that is really left for me to do now is to go and start playing Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia.

  1. You took out the Amiibos from the packaging? Noooo. Think of the value! Hehe, just kidding.

    I made do with buying the bog standard game, but must admit that the Limited Edition looks very nice. The pin badges are sweet.
