Genei Ibun Roku #FE

Developers discuss the world and gameplay of the Shin Megami Tensei and Fire Emblem crossover.

New information and screenshots for the Wii U exclusive Genei Ibun Roku #FE have been revealed, courtesy of a recent Famitsu interview translated by Persona Central. Producers and directors from both Atlus and Nintendo discuss details about the game’s battles, characters, and Wii U Gamepad features. First of all, the turn-based battles in the game will combine the enemy weakness effects from the Shin Megami Tensei games and the “Weapon Triangle” system from the Fire Emblem series. Up to three party members can battle at one time, but party members outside the participating three can aid active party members in some way. Characters can gain new moves, songs, abilities, and related movies by completing character-specific side stories. Characters will also participate in “live performances” during the course of the game, which utilizes motion capture for the music and dance sequences.

Genei Ibun Roku #FE will feature live performances created by the Avex Group.

Next, the game’s Mirages, characters from previous Fire Emblem games, are meant to look “machine-like” to give them an otherworldly feel. Tiki is the only Mirage that looks completely human. Mirages combine with the party members to assume their “Carnage form,” but can battle in their civilian outfits as well. The game will take place in Shibuya and the newly-revealed Harajuka. Other locations were teased and can apparently be seen in the second gameplay trailer. Dungeons in the game will not be based in reality and are meant to be in contrast the colorful nature of the real world. Dungeons will also have unique themes and puzzles to solve.

Mirages can combine with the party members to create their “Carnage form.”

Finally, the Gamepad will be used as an in-game map as well as utilizing the game’s chat application, “The Topic.”  The mechanic will allow the main character to send and receive messages from other party members over the course of the game. The game will also feature different difficulty settings to make the game a little easier for new players.

    Really looking forward to this. This is really shaping up to be a nice JRPG with elements from two great franchises. Meanwhile Fates…sigh…RIP Fire Emblem.
