Strangely, like other recent Nintendo products (such as the “Super Mario Bros. 35” and “Super Mario 3D All-Star” trilogy), the game will only be available in limited quantities.
If you want to keep the game, you need to buy it before March 31, 2021. Obviously, it will be suspended in time on the 30th anniversary of the release of the series, but this remains to be determined.
The game is not the exact port of the original title. The game has some enhancements that make it easier for modern players to play the game in 25 hardcore chapters.
For example, if you mess up something, you can rewind the turn, and the player can quickly move forward in the enemy’s turn.
As you can see in the tweet embedded above, there will also be physical versions of the game appearing on the West Coast.
The limited-edition physical release-called the Fire Emblem 30th Anniversary Edition-is priced at US$49.99 (or local currency equivalent).
