Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack recently saw Game Boy Advance games added to the Expansion Pack tier of the service. Those who still have an active Expansion Pack subscription will soon be able to play an utter classic GBA title starting June 23: Fire Emblem! Take a look at what was the series’ debut here in the state back in 2003:

Often referred to by fans as The Blazing Blade, Fire Emblem returns once more (it was previously made available again on the Wii U Virtual Console in 2014, but alas is now gone following that service’s shuttering). Here’s a bit more about the game, from Nintendo:

In Fire Emblem, the nation of Lycia stands on the precipice of war after centuries of peace. Turmoil grows as noble houses plot treason, allies become enemies and armies stand poised for combat … all while a mysterious figure manipulates empires from the shadows. Now Lyn, along with Eliwood and Hector, must amass their own army to fight back against the forces that would destroy everything they hold dear – and before the world is burned to ash.
