I don't know if you already know of this or not, but FE Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light is coming to the Switch in English for a limited time. I know you mentioned you wanted to try out the older games officially, so luckily that chance is coming December 4th! I know I'm going to get it just to play through it again, but this time with portability.
Ha well now that I see you on here while I'm back around I can finally say it. Thanks for the Christmas and birthday wishes last year while I pretty much fully inactive. It was/is still much appreciated.
