Following this, new maps will be available weekly for $1.99 each until June 9. By purchasing Map Pack 2 for $7.99, all of these DLC maps will become available automatically and, in total, will cost less than buying them individually.
“The stages included in Map Pack 2 tell an ongoing story,” Nintendo explained in a press release. “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.”
