GBA Fire Emblems Blazing Blade (All) and Binding Blade (JP Only) coming to Nintendo Switch Online+ June 23

This is practically bringing me out of the woodwork. Nintendo of America gave us a pretty exciting tweet just a short while ago; All Nintendo Switch Online+ users will finally have access to play Fire Emblem Blazing Blade, and it’s in a week! You heard it here, folks!


For the Japanese NSO account holders; both Fire Emblem Blazing Blade and Fire Emblem Binding Blade are coming out on the same day. English NSO+ account holders will not have access to Binding Blade, which is unfortunate, but maybe we will one day. Regardless; we can finally play this on the go, legally to boot! I wonder how the Link Arena will work…


Fire Emblem Engage: Out Now, Icon Elements & Comic Adaptation!

Today is 20th January, which means Fire Emblem Engage is officially out!

To celebrate the occasion, the official Fire Emblem Twitter shared this stunning artwork.

Also, they sure took their sweet time, but Fire Emblem icons are now available for the Nintendo Switch! However, you will need a Nintendo Switch Online subscription.

Starting now, you can redeem FE Engage icon elements via the Mission & Rewards tab, by using Platinum Coins (you can obtain these from playing FE Heroes for instance). There will be 6 sets, available for one week each, beginning from each Friday.

Last but not least, FE Engage is getting a comic adaptation in Japan!

A prologue, which occurs before Alear awakens, will feature in the March issue of Saikyō Jump, available from 3rd Feb. The comic will then properly begin with Chapter 1 in Saikyō Jump’s April issue alongside Shōnen Jump+.

The artist is 今日和老 (Kyou Kazuro).

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the original release of Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light, Nintendo has released two special versions of the game available right now for Nintendo Switch Online subscribers with access to the Famicom games library. Note that you will need to set your account to be able to download Japanese software.
