Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade hits the Switch Online library on June 23, Nintendo has announced.
Revealed in a tweet (below), players will soon be able to get their virtual hands on the game that originally launched for Game Boy Advance in 2002 and is commonly known as just Fire Emblem. This is because, while The Blazing Blade held the subtitle in Japan, this was the first Fire Emblem game released in the west.

"Lyn, Eliwood, and Hector must amass an army strong enough to fight back the forces that would destroy their homeland in the Game Boy Advance version of Fire Emblem," reads the tweet.
Users will need both Nintendo Switch Online and the Expansion Pack before they're able to download Metroid Fusion and the rest of the Game Boy Advance Games, but all of this can be done from the Switch Online app on the console itself.
Also available in the collection is Super Mario Advance 4, Super Mario Bros. 3, WarioWare Inc: Mega MicroGames, Kuru Kuru Kuruin, Mario Kart: Super Circuit, Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga, and The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap, and more.
