Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light

The Fire Emblem 30th Anniversary Edition still has a few days to go until release, but it’s already reaching consumers’ hands early. View an unboxing video below showing off its full contents.

The Fire Emblem 30th Anniversary Edition releases on December 4.

This week on Nintendo Everything Podcast, we’re gonna party like it’s 1990 because Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light is getting an English release. Galen then tells us how much of a creativity vacuum he is in character creation with Baldur’s Gate 3. We also explore: is early access good for consumers? Later, Oni Dino is not down for Prinny 2 at bedtime but is down for picross. There’s also lots of news bits to talk about, culminating in Fire Emblem. But what’s the deal with the limited availability? Another game to the pile. Is March 31st significant?

Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light is celebrating its 30th anniversary today. In honor of the occasion, a treat is now available for Nintendo Switch Online members in Japan.

The Famicom app has updated with a pair of special versions for the game. In the first one, the action picks up right as players are about to trigger a Triangle Attack with Palla, Catria, and Est. The second one begins at the endgame chapter, where Marth must battle Medeus to save the day.

Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light never came out in the west, so these bonuses and the game itself aren’t available in North America or Europe. However, if you create a Japanese Nintendo Account and download the Famicom app, you should be able to access them – just without any English.
