After last month's release of Mario 3D All-Stars, obviously Nintendo looks to further implement other anniversary editions leading forward. Regardless of the game's limited release window because the title will be delisted from the Nintendo eShop by March 31 the coming year in 2022, fans groaned and purchased the three-game bundle regardless of might the pricing from the collection.
Now in anticipation for the 30th anniversary of Fire Emblem landing this season, Nintendo is preparing to do a similar approach for the franchise. But rather than reintroducing a trio of titles from the repertoire of entries in the franchise, Nintendo chose to only sell the very first entry that shipped around the Famicom – Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon & The Blade of sunshine.
Most notable in the announcement is the fact that Nintendo will be introducing the very first ever English localization of the classic 1990 RPG. The firm tells the sport is going to be arriving the very first week of December for $6.99.
In accessory for the announcement, Nintendo also unveils that there will be a Fire Emblem 30th Anniversary Edition which includes an abundance of collectible memorabilia. For $49.99, fans can receive a physical NES box themed after the game, replica NES Game Pak art piece, 222-page artbook, NES instructions, inspired world map, and a mini Nintendo Power collectible.
Looking forward, it is still anticipated that Nintendo will further take advantage of the nostalgic worth of its properties leading ahead with one of these anniversary campaigns. Noted, Metroid and the Legend of Zelda are turning 35 in 2022, so perhaps those are the next candidates to receive an identical treatment then.
