Last night, Nintendo released a special Feh Channel broadcast for Fire Emblem Heroes, though rather than look at what’s coming soon for updates and events, it decided to look to the past instead. Specifically, all the way to the first Fire Emblem, originally released on April 20th in 1990. Feh and some heroes, old and new, both got the 8-bit treatment to celebrate the series’ 30th anniversary.

 

 
While the video itself is mostly to show a skirmish between these sprites, special accessories of 8-bit Alfonse, Sharena, and Anna will be available for clearing special maps modeled after the original game. The video also went through the lineage of lords and other important characters to share their sprites, portraits, and personalities.

All in all, it was a fun and unique tribute to a series that’s come a long way across these decades. The special maps, as well as log-in bonuses for 8-bit Feh and Fehnix accessories, will begin tomorrow, April 1st, and they’ll run through April 14th.

When he isn’t writing for Nintendo Wire, Ricky’s anticipating the next Kirby, Fire Emblem, or if the stars ever align, Mother 3 to be released. Till then he’ll have the warm comfort of Super Smash Bros. to keep him going.
