I would prefer a SNES version of any Fire Emblem game instead.

Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon & the Blade of Light is coming to Switch for a 'limited time'

'For the first time in the US'

Here Nintendo is with yet another surprise, and yet another "limited time release!" It's been an insane year.

Just this morning, the publisher has announced that the Marth-starring Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon & the Blade of Light will be available "for the first time in the US" on December 4. Note that this is the 1990 game that started it all for the 30-year-running franchise; which helped bring tactical grid-based combat to the forefront.

When it hits on December 4 it'll cost you $5.99 to pick up, but again, there's a catch. Nintendo says, specifically, that the game will "only be available to purchase until the end of the franchise’s 30th anniversary on March 31, 2021." You can find more info on the game itself here.

Note that they are doing a similar marketing scheme with Mario 3D All-Stars, as well as Super Mario Bros. 35. Jump Rope Challenge initially was marketed with this same "limited-time" angle, but the company relented and made it available for the foreseeable future. Time will tell what happens here, just know that for now, you're on a timer. It's getting a little out of hand at this point.

A 30th anniversary edition is also coming to "select retailers," which will run you $49.99. It comes with a replica NES game and box, as well as a 222-page art book, an NES style manual, a Nintendo Power collectible and game download code.
