Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore Coming to Nintendo Switch

Remember Tokyo Mirage Sessions? Probably not, but it's okay because the acclaimed SMT/Fire Emblem mashup is getting a second chance at stardom on the Nintendo Switch

Atlus and Nintendo are remaking the Wii U cult favorite Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE for the Nintendo Switch. It is packaged with new content (and an even longer name) as Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore.

Mirage Sessions is a mashup of both Atlus' Shin Megami Tensei franchise and Intelligent Systems' Fire Emblem games. It features combat elements from both, characters from the latter, loads of Easter eggs from each franchise, and it's all wrapped up in a J-Pop setting. We rather liked it in our review of the Wii U original.

Players take control of a group of aspiring pop idols in contemporary Tokyo, who, along with the usual trials of performing, must deal with an invasion force of spirits from another dimension.

Mirage Sessions tasks players with crafting and fusing their weapons, and each character's special power takes the form of an iconic character from the Fire Emblem franchise. Note that since this is a Wii U game, these characters hail from games like the original Fire Emblem, and Awakening — not Three Houses.

The Encore version includes an extra song and new story elements, and it's out on January 17, 2020.
