Emblem Micaiah Now a Nintendo Switch Icon Element

By LUDWIG VON KOOPA - You have until February 2, 20:00 Eastern to get her!

One very nice thing about both being a Nintendo Switch Online subscriber and Fire Emblem Engage releasing is that Nintendo is releasing icon elements of the characters in Fire Emblem Engage, and that includes the Emblem characters from prior Fire Emblem games that would otherwise never be on a Nintendo Switch profile picture. Behold!

...I'm right that Micaiah looks weird with purple eyes compared to her normal gold eyes.

It's no secret I like Micaiah from Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn, which is in contention to be my favourite Fire Emblem game (versus its prequel, Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance) and it's indisputably my favourite game on the Wii. She's the top woman I'd rather have as United States president than Hillary Clinton. I wrote a whole article bemoaning about how Radiant Dawn never gave her any Authority Stars, which is apparently a game mechanic not many people playing the game even knew was there.

...Not everyone in the fanbase shares my liking for Lady Micaiah, and just statistically, the majority of people playing Fire Emblem Engage have never played Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn. Perhaps people won't appreciate her. But for those that do, you have a week since this is published to get her icon element. Once she's gone, she's gone. Not...forever, since around the new year Nintendo had previous icon elements available throughout 2022 up for a day each, but that's extremely easy to miss. Now is the best time! But you need to be a Nintendo Switch Online subscriber.

Yes, I actually switched to Micaiah instead of myself, despite what a struggle it was to get an icon element of me.
I think I'll only do this for a week until she no longer becomes available. GOTTA RAISE AWARENESS.

The more Ludwig looks at Micaiah's Fire Emblem Engage artwork, or any Fire Emblem Engage artwork, the less Fire Emblem engaged he gets and the more Fire Emblem enraged he gets, because all of the faces looking like that is really loathsome. It's still way better than the butchering that Fire Emblem: Awakening did to her artwork, which remains unforgivable to this day.
