The Nintendo Direct Showcase was able to shed a little more light on everything new coming to Fire Emblem Engage over the coming months of DLC. With a further three Waves planned on top of what we already have from launch, the additional content is set to bring a host of new Emblems to the game as well as a new storyline.

Wave Two is available from today and adds in returning heroes Hector 'Emblem of Strength,' Soren 'Emblem of Acumen' and Camilla 'Emblem of Revelation'.

Wave Three will be coming our way a little later on but it is similarly stacked with returning faces including the likes of Chrom and Robin 'Emblem of Bonds' and Veronica 'Emblem of Heroes'. It looks like there will be specific tasks added to the game to get these new heroes on your team.

Finally, Wave Four will bring a brand new storyline called 'Fell Xenologue' which looks like it will see Alear and co. heading out to a new world to take on a fresh enemy.
