Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light (NES) Now Available on Nintendo Switch!

Today is a rather historic moment for the Fire Emblem series. 30 years after its original release, the NES version of Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light is now available in English via the Nintendo Switch eShop!

This newly translated version of the game celebrates 30 years of Fire Emblem, starting with the original launch on 20th April 1990. A special 30th Anniversary Edition was also up for pre-order in North America, although you had to be pretty fast and lucky to snag one up.

Please note that the English version of Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light will be discontinued after 31st March 2021. Similar to Super Mario 3D All Stars. We’re not quite sure why Nintendo chose to do this, but that’s how it is.
