Fire Emblem - Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light

Fire Emblem fans who have waited to play the original version of Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light can finally rejoice. The Famicom title has been localized and released for the Nintendo Switch in the West. Check out the launch trailer below to see it in action.

Along with over 50 characters, and several different units and classes, the port offers save states and a rewind feature. So if you’re anxious about permanently losing any units, this should make things easier. The game is currently available on the eShop for $5.99 but also has a physical retail version, Fire Emblem 30th Anniversary Edition.

It offers a download code, replica game box, instruction booklet, collector’s box, a mini Nintendo Power collectible, deluxe art book and map. Of course, given how valuable it is, the chances of actually acquiring the same are slim. Either way, Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light is available to purchase until March 31st 2021 for Switch so act fast.
