Original Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon & the Blade of Light Game to Release on Nintendo Switch for a Limited Time
The game releases on December 4, but only until March 30
After all these years, the original NES Fire Emblem game, Shadow Dragon & the Blade of Light, will be available in the west ... but only for a limited time for the franchise's 30th anniversary. The game will come in both a digital version and a very collector's physical release. A trailer for the game was released to announce the newly translated port.
According to Nintendo, the Fire Emblem 30th Anniversary Edition comes in an NES-style box with a replica NES Game Pak art piece, a newly localized NES instruction manual, a world map, and a "protective sleeve." The special edition also includes a 222-page Legacy of Archanea art book and a Mini Nintendo Power retro collectible.
Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon & the Blade of Light releases digitally for US$5.99, and physically for US$49.99 on December 4, and goes out of stock on March 30, 2021 – the end of the celebrations for Fire Emblem's 30th Anniversary.
