Though we’re rightfully excited for Donkey Kong Country 2, once again Japan’s Nintendo Switch Online service has a little something western fans are missing out on. Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem, the remake and expansion of the original Fire Emblem, is one of the more popular in Japan — and now it’ll be playable on Switch.



While you’ll be able to play it by downloading the Japanese Super Famicom Switch Online app, the text and plot-heavy game will not be playable in English. Still, with the right walkthrough anyone will be able to at least try and enjoy this strategy classic starting September 23rd.

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.
