The game will sell on the eShop for US$5.99 but if you’re a collector, you can purchase the Fire Emblem 30th Anniversary Edition for US$49.99 which will include:
- Physical NES box and replica NES Game Pak art piece with a protective sleeve

Keep in mind that once again, this title is only available for purchase until March 31st. This appears to now be a habit of Nintendo’s as they are also doing this with Super Mario Bros. 35. Why, Nintendo? Why?
