Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE, the Fire Emblem and Shin Megami Tensei crossover for Wii U, launches tomorrow on June 24th! Developed by SMT developer Atlus, this JRPG takes place in modern-day Tokyo and has you in control of pop idols who team up with Mirages–like in Persona–to combat evil Mirages who influence Tokyo’s citizens for their devious purposes. These mirages are actually based off of famous Fire Emblem heroes (Chrom, Tharja and Caeda) and villains (Aversa), so expect plenty of fanservice.
As seen above, the dialogue will be presented in subtitles alongside the original Japanese language so as to respect the Tokyo setting. Since it centers around idols, you can expect animated J-Pop sequences and in-jokes/references to the idol industry.
GameSkinny’s review of Tokyo Mirage Sessions scored the game a 9/10, citing the strong soundtrack, clever overworld design and fun battle system as the game’s greatest strengths. If you’re into J-pop, anime or general Japanese culture, Tokyo Mirage Sessions is the JRPG you’ve been waiting for.
