The original Famicom Fire Emblem game is coming to the Switch, in English for the first time

Nintendo has announced that the original Fire Emblem game, originally released on the Famicom is coming to the Switch. Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon & the Blade of Light was released on the Famicom in 1990 and never released outside Japan or in English.

This Switch release will see the game translated, but released in its original form. This is no remake, or remaster – it will have Quick Save, Quick Load and rewind/fast forward features. The game will be cheap with pricing at just $9AUD.

Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon & the Blade of Light will be released on December 4th 2020. Nintendo says this will only be on sale until March 31st 2021. This is another “30 Years” celebration type deal, but we’re not sure if we like it here either.

The collector’s edition that was shown off as well, has been confirmed for Australia and will only be available from EB Games, with stock apparently limited. It will include everything that the USA are getting, even the Nintendo Power poster. If you want to order one for yourself, you can do so here.
