Nintendo’s recent reveal of the Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem trailer left a lot of people questioning the project’s direction. Namely, where’s the Fire Emblem part? Shinjiro Takada is the producer of this crossover project and has this to say in a translated interview.
“(In the recent trailer), many people may find it hard to understand where the essence of ‘Fire Emblem’ comes into play. However, this will be explained more in the future, so please wait for a follow-up to this.”
Takada also reveals the concept of this crossover. “(Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem) follows the basic axis of what I would say are ‘Realistic characters who suffer from many conflicts and worries in modern-day Japan’ in this RPG.” Speaking of realistic characters, the trailer only shows off four characters, but there are more characters that we haven’t seen yet and some we only caught a quick glimpse. Takada assures us that they will reveal more about other characters in the future.
The crossover is currently slated for a winter release in Japan and a 2016 release in Europe. No US release window has been announced as of yet.
