So...if I'm reading that right, it's something totally unrelated and an XP grind map.

Yep, Nintendo's doing DLC right.

So is treehouse putting the girls in burkas for the beach map?

A curtain will blow in from out of frame and cover up Camilla's swimsuit.

So yes, a side story of sorts

and an XP grind map, because you have people complain that you don't gain enough XP and conquest is too hard. So yea. If it makes you feel better, the XP grind map isn't just "Free exp!" since you can lose your units to those darn 5 range monsters.

More dlc for this game is always a welcome. Bring on the fun Nin!

Been anxiously awaiting the exp map since Monday. Awakening's was super helpful. Time to get my grind on.

If you need to design a map for the sole purpose of grinding for experience, that might be an indicator of something wrong with the game's pacing and design. And you have to pay extra for it, too? Meh...

It's like Disney Magical World.

Step 1: Make the game somewhat harder than expected.
Step 2: Sell something to make the game easier.
Step 3: Everyone wins?

I will keep pointing at crap like this as an example of DLC being a complete conflict of interest. Make attempts at game balance or just sell game balance for extra $$$? So, there's NOTHING wrong with the game's pacing and design, according to the kind folk at Intelligent Systems. They ain't dumb.

Not really, it's more an indicator that a wide variety of people play Fire Emblem with a lot of different levels of experience and reasons for enjoying the game.

Some people want a classic straight-through playthrough, and the game is designed just fine for doing that, especially with the various difficulty options.

Other people want to grind character relationships and use every unit in the game and such, and this DLC helps them play at a slower pace like that.

Both maps are kinda meh. Boo Camp is ridiculously hard (for the level I'm at, at least) and all of the enemies just run away. Beach Brawl sets you up for a lot of unfair battles. All of the other characters just straight target your measely three characters. It would be fine if you would be able to use your own characters, but they can't.

Beach Brawl isn't unfair. No team actively seeks you out unless you enter their line of fire, which only happens off the bat for the two teams in the top left. On top of that, you are given plentiful dragon vain uses to lower each team before you confront them. The rest is dealing with your chosen team in the best way possible. Is it challenging? Definitely, my first victory took 53 turns. But is it unfair? No lol.

Here's Sakura's image btw if anyone wanted to see another one of the examples https://d3esbfg30x759i.cloudfront.net/ss/WVW69i7t45YJG-glG6

Oh great, another beach fanservice filled dlc... Will this one censor a lot of inoffensive crap as well?...

Leo:....Hello, ladies.

Oh Nintendo, on one hand I glad you didn't censor any of the CG scenes in the Beach Brawl DLC with objectively horribly drawn curtains like in Awakening,

but it leaves one to wonder, why are revealing, purely fanservice scenes of the cast of the game in swimsuits perfectly okay, but the less revealing in game swimsuit accesories, that actually had a tangible impact on the gameplay, all removed, oh, except for the bath towel they graciously left in, so that menu in the shop wouldn't be completley empty, I'm guessing.
