Nintendo Switch Online subscribers are in for a treat as Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade, the Game Boy Advance version of the popular game, is set to join the subscription service on June 23. This release marks the first time the Fire Emblem franchise, known for its strategy gameplay and engaging storylines, will be available to audiences outside of Japan.
A Beloved Addition to the Series
Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade serves as a prequel to Fire Emblem: The Blinding Blade and is set on the continent of Elibe. In this installment, players follow the journeys of Lyn, Eliwood, and Hector as they engage in grid-based combat and execute dazzling animated attacks. The game features a wide range of character classes, each with its unique set of weapons. It’s important to tread carefully though, as fallen characters meet a permanent end.
Expanding Nintendo Switch Online’s Library
Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade is one of the latest additions to the ever-growing library of Nintendo Switch Online. Last week, Harvest Moon, Kirby Tilt ‘n’ Tumble, and two other games were also made available for subscribers to enjoy.
