Shin Megami Tensei x Fire Emblem Setting More or Less Revealed

While Fire Emblem characters may not be familiar with their modern setting, they'll have no problem with the demons that pass their way.

For a very long while no one heard anything on the new Shin Megami Tensei x Fire Emblem game that was mentioned last January. However, Hitoshi Yamagami, head supervisor of all Intelligent Systems projects, revealed a small, but highly interesting detail about the game in an interview with Hobby Consolas.

Yamagami expressed that he wanted to make a Fire Emblem in modern times. He imagined “a Pegasus that comes from the sky and lands on…Building 109 of Shibuya, Tokyo.” After visiting with several companies to pitch this idea, Atlus suggested throwing Shin Megami Tensei into the mix, launching the collaboration between Atlus and Intelligent Systems.

With this mash up of RPG’s and Yamagami’s vision, it can only mean that Fire Emblem characters and elements will take place in a modern setting (possibly post-apocalyptic). How they’ll get there? Most likely time travel.

To set the groundwork until its release, Nintendo of America is opening the opportunity to get $30 eShop credit when customers purchase Shin Megami Tensei IV and Fire Emblem: Awakening and register the Club Nintendo codes within. These two titles are for 3DS, but Shin Megami Tensei x Fire Emblem will be released on the Wii U.
