When I read the thread title, my first thought was a double pack release of the DS remakes of Fire Emblem 1 and 3 (two games in the series that are directly tied together), but then I remembered that FE3's subtitle is more along the lines of Mystery of the Emblem, not Blade of Light.

This release looks like someone remembered at the eleventh hour that Fire Emblem turned 30 years old this year, so they put something together quickly. While it's nice that this game can be bought instead of being locked behind a subscription (translations cost money), there's not really a point to it when a better version could be played on the DS twelve years ago. The DS version had faster gameplay, cleaner menus and graphics, updated music. It certainly wasn't the best received Fire Emblem because the gameplay was puristic without being updated to match the options of the GBA, GC and Wii games, and its artstyle wasn't well-liked either, but it's still ten times better than playing the original Shadow Dragon.

Releasing overhauled versions (resolution!) of the DS remakes of Fire Emblem 1 and 3 on a Switch game card for €/$40-50 would have been so much better.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.
