The Inner Sanctum


Echoes: Shadows of Valentia

The Inner Sanctum (Japanese: 星の神殿 ~深き場所~ Astral Temple: The Depths) is a dungeon appearing in Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia and is accessed through downloadable content. The Inner Sanctum is part of the second series of DLC releases.

This dungeon was first made available on May 2, 2017 in Japan, May 25, 2017 in North America and Europe, and May 26, 2017 in Australia and New-Zealand.

In this dungeon, rare items such as the Star Shards can be obtained either by enemies' drops or by breaking the pots.


Main article: The Inner Sanctum/Script

At the entrance to the temple, a bishop explains that it was built to worship the Manaketes, housing their valuable burial goods. However, a group of powerful grave robbers and the like had begun looting it, now reaching the innermost sanctum where the Manaketes themselves are buried. The bishop then urges Alm or Celica's party to defeat the temple's interlopers.


Dangerous foes lurk in the depths of the Astral Temple, but so do in-game items of incredible value. Will you take the leap?
