Of Course Scalpers Are Already Listing Fire Emblem’s 30th Anniversary Edition

This week, Nintendo announced it would be bringing Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon & the Blade of Light to the west for the first time ever. The catch – because there’s always one – is that it’ll be another “limited-time” release and will only be available on the Switch eShop until 31st March 2021.

Alongside this, Nintendo is offering a Fire Emblem 30th Anniversary Edition. Like the digital release, this will only be available for a “limited time”. Despite the fact it doesn’t include a physical copy of the game, it’s still in high demand and as a result, scalpers are already taking advantage of its limited availability. Here are some examples from Twitter user grayson_james23:

“I don’t post on Twitter much but come on @NintendoAmerica these sold out in two minutes… for the sake of everyone please produce a lot so that you can drown out these scum bags. As an FE collector and mega fan.. I’m really upset..”

If you do a quick search of Fire Emblem 30th Anniversary on eBay or similar websites, you’ll likely come across a number of these listings. The good majority aren’t really making an effort to hide the fact they’re reselling their own orders, and as usual, the prices have been significantly bumped up from the suggested price of $49.99. Some listings even have bids on them…

This follows on from last month when scalpers were caught out reselling another “limited-time” release, Super Mario 3D All-Stars, ahead of its launch date. Have you had any issues securing Fire Emblem’s 30th Anniversary Edition? Tell us down below.
