Fire Emblem: The Sword of Flame (or as it’s known anywhere else excluding Japan, Fire Emblem) is a turn-based tactical RPG that initially released for the Game Boy Advance back in 2003. The game was rather well-received and localized to begin with because of the surprising popularity garnered by Marth and Roy who had appeared in Super Smash Bros. Melee.
Fire Emblem installment, which is actually the seventh in the series, released on Wii U Virtual Console in Japan and Europe on May 14th and August 21st respectively.
Today, those here in the United States can purchase
Fire Emblem: The Sword of Flame on Wii U Virtual Console for $7.99.
Fire Emblem: The Sword of Flame features three protagonists, the young lords of Lycia: Lyn, Eliwood, and Hector.
This title, having been the first in the series to be localized anywhere but Japan, proved to be a great introduction to the franchise. Whether or not it’s worth $7.99 is left up to individual opinion, but
The Sword of Flame is arguably entertaining and gripping.
