Available as a $25 bundle, these amiibo unlock exclusive dungeons which-as revealed in the game's announcement-provide new Fire Emblem's progression: new bosses, earn new items, and fight in 3rd person mode.

When it launches on 19 May, Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia will be available as a solus game and special Limited Edition, featuring the game, an artbook, metal pixel pin badges of Alm, Celica, and Marth, a reversible title sheet, the "Sounds of Echoes" soundtrack selection CD, and the Alm and Celica amiibo figures.

Additionally, the Mila's Turnwheel option lets you use an Amiibo to sacrifice one of the two character's health during battle.

Nintendo also released a new, three-minute trailer for the game, dubbed "Two Armies", that introduces dual protagonists Alm and Celica, and dives into its turn-based strategic combat, facilities, classes, and more.

Nintendo UK is also offering a similar Limited Edition for Europe, which seems to include the Alm/Celica amiibo pair in addition to what is offered in the NA Limited Edition.

Other Fire Emblem amiibo from the Super Smash Bros. series can also be used to summon an illusory hero of that character. The choices for fans expand via the announcement of Fire Emblem Echoes Limited Edition. In addition, as you level up of Alm and Celica, the information will be saved to their amiibo and the summoned units will get stronger. For $59.99/$79.99, the bundle contains the game, a hardcover art book, a "Sound Selection" CD, a pin set with Alm, Celica and Marth, and a cover sheet created to look like the 1992 Famicom game's box art. As can all other amiibo released, which will summon a random monster to help in a battle.

Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia will hit 3DS for $40 on May 19, with the limited edition retailing for $60. It still sells for well over retail value, so I'd expect the same treatment for Fire Emblem Echoes.
