New info on Fire Emblem: Three Houses 'Cindered Shadows' shared

Some official details, plus datamined info

Nintendo announced the Fire Emblem: Three Houses 'Cindered Shadows' earlier this week, and some new details have come in. First up is official info straight from Nintendo.

The story introduces new characters and takes place in an area below Garreg Mach known as the Abyss

The DLC can be accessed from the main menu in a different save file from the main story

The course of events will be different from other stories

Does not seem to use the main story calendar system

The battles are carried out with squads of predetermined characters, allowing normally incompatible characters to fight on the same side (e.g. Edelgard and Hilda)

The maps of this DLC feature new mechanics and tricks

This story is also linked to the main story, and when beating the DLC players can recruit the new characters Yuri, Hapi, Balthus and Constance to continue with the main story.

On top of that, there's another round of potential info that comes from dataminers. As long as you don't mind spoilers, check out the two videos below.

Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore facing shortages in France and Japan

Hard to find already?!

Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore saw release on the Switch yesterday around the world, and it seems that the game has been very well received. Believe it or not, we're already hearing reports of shortages in places like France and Japan.

Over in France, it seems the shortages are due to a low initial shipment. Word on the street is that just 10,000 copies were sent to retailers, and people have snatched them up quickly. There's already three major retailers who are sold out of the game online!

Over in Japan, the situation is a tad different. Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore has managed to sell out of its full My Nintendo stock in just a day, which isn't something you usually see happen. We also hear that the game is becoming quite hard to find at Yodobashi Camera locations.

Hopefully Nintendo is on-top of this situation, and get out some more stock in the near future. For now though, people will have to go the eShop route.
