Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem, which was released in Japan this past December as Genei Ibun Roku FE, finally has a North American release date… and a new name. Now known as Tokyo Mirage Sessions FE, the Atlus-developed RPG will be released for the Wii U on June 24.
Taking place in modern-day Japan, Tokyo Mirage Sessions FE combines the “deep RPG gameplay from an Atlus game and the adrenaline-fueled fun of a pop idol concert.” But there’s also monsters to slay and a world to save:
Slay monsters—and slay like a pop star—all at the same time, in this brand-new RPG from acclaimed developer Atlus. A sinister force from another dimension has invaded modern-day Tokyo, resulting in a fantastical barrage of style, fashion, music and, of course, danger. So play to your strengths in high-energy turn-based battles, then fuse items to craft powerful weapons and crush your foes. Around every corner you’ll find fan-service—including Fire Emblem references—original songs by Japanese entertainment giant Avex, dungeons themed after the entertainment industry and eye-catching music performances.
Nintendo and Atlus have decided to make exclusive use of Tokyo Mirage Sessions FE’s Japanese language track, and include English subtitles, for its North American release to stay true to the setting.
