Details have emerged on the upcoming Wii U title, tentatively referred to as Shin Megami Tensei x Fire Emblem. In a rather surprising turn of events Nintendo have revealed details of the story and setting which do come as rather shocking.
Nintendo described the story as a battle between glamour and darkness, with the player being a ‘Mirage Masters’ who dreams of advancing through the entertainment business by singing, acting and the like. There is an apparent evil dimension converging with the real world that they will have to deal with but more interesting is the fact that screenshots seemingly reveal the games setting to be that of Shibuya, Tokyo.
So it goes without saying that this is exactly the furthest thing from both Shin Megami Tensei and Fire Emblem, but I trust that Nintendo and friends know what they are doing here.
