On the 30th anniversary of the original Fire Emblem Entry on Famicom, Nintendo will be re-releasing the game on the Nintendo Switch and for the first time ever, it will be fully localised for English audiences. This entry will be released as Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon & the Blade of Light and will launch for Switch on December 4th.
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
- 222-page Legacy of Archanea deluxe hardbound art book
- Game download code
- NES instruction manual
- Fold-out world map
- Mini Nintendo Power retro collectible.
Here’s the announcement trailer:
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?
