Nintendo has announced that Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade will join their Nintendo Switch Online service on June 23, 2023. However, you must be subscribed to the Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack membership to be able to play the game.
Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade was initially a Game Boy Advance title, and it was also the first entry in the series to greet North America and Europe. It’s seen by many as a satisfactory entry point in the series even now despite its age. Further, it is a prequel to Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade, featuring Lyn, Eliwood, and Hector as the protagonists.
