Extras

Bonus Box

This section will detail the various Bonus Box content in the game. To obtain this content, you must connect your 3DS or 2DS to the internet and enabled SpotPass for this game. Normally, the game will download new content automatically, but there is also an option to manually check for new data.

Bonus Teams

120 characters from past Fire Emblem games at your fingertips!

These are bonus teams from previous games. All team leaders can be recruited, as well as fought as many times as you want. The teams are built up in ways sometimes familiar with players of previous games.

An example is Nino’s team from "Fire Emblem" – she’s with a Hero, Swordmaster, and Assassin, which could represent Linus, Lloyd, and Jaffar, for instance. Or Lyn’s crew being the characters you get in Lyn’s story, or Nergal’s team the Black Fang. Fun little references like that.
