The original Fire Emblem game is getting localized after 30 years
by João Carrasqueira
Today, Nintendo announced that the original release of Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light is making its way outside of Japan for the first time since its original release 30 years ago on the Famicom. The game is coming to the Nintendo Switch eShop on December 4.
The game was announced through a tweet that plays with the fact that Marth, a main character in the original Fire Emblem game, was featured in the 2001 release of Super Smash Bros. Melee, despite the franchise being exclusive to Japan at the time.
Fire Emblem debuted in the West with the release of Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade (originally known simply as Fire Emblem worldwide) on the GameBoy Advance in 2003, but the previous titles were never officially brought over to other markets. However, the original Fire Emblem was remade as a DS title, and that saw a worldwide release, so this isn't exactly the first time you can experience the same overall story.
The Nintendo Switch release will be mostly like the original game, but some changes have been made to make the title more accessible for modern audiences. There's a new ability to rewind turns in battle, fast-forward for movements on the battlefield, and save states so you can pick the game up where you left off.
To celebrate the history of the franchise, Nintendo is also releasing a Fire Emblem 30th Anniversary Edition, which includes a game box replica, an art piece based on the original cartridge for the game, an art book, and a "mini Nintendo Power retro collectible". The game itself will be included as a download code - presumably it was hard to justify producing a physical game card considering the game is 30MB in size.

Another iOS 14 bug resets default app settings for the email and browser apps
by Abhay Venkatesh
One of the major new features in iOS 14 is the ability to set third-party apps as the default for the email and browser apps. However, a bug in the OS ended up resetting the app defaults to Apple’s offerings every time the device was restarted. The Cupertino giant issued a fix for the issue with iOS 14.0.1. As it turns out, the problem might persist, this time resetting the defaults every time the user-defined apps are updated via the App Store.
Twitter user David Clarke posted a video of the behavior (spotted by The Verge) where an update to the Gmail app results in the default email app switching to Apple Mail. The setting for the default browser app supposedly behaves similarly, resetting any defaults set by users. The problem seems to be present on the latest iOS 14.1 update released yesterday.
Considering that the issue has been confirmed to affect both the email and browser defaults, it is less likely that the behavior is caused by the apps itself and not the OS. It is possible that the upcoming iOS 14.2 update contains a fix for the problem, though, the release notes for iOS 14.2 Beta 4 do not contain a mention of the issue. For now, users affected by these problems can turn off automatic updates so as to not have to constantly change the defaults every time the apps are updated.
