Just a quick PSA for all you Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem fans out there (and who out there isn’t a fan at this point?) that Nintendo and Atlus have posted a couple of new trailers for the forthcoming game. One is an ‘introduction trailer’ that shows off a bunch of gameplay and gives some background for the setting, and the other is a character trailer for the soft spoken and suave Yashiro Tsurugi. Take a look at the vids and see if your hype gauge for this game doesn’t go into overdrive. While in Japanese, they do a decent job of communicating the basic concepts in both instances, although those uninitiated to the world of Shin Megam Tensei might find themselves bewildered. If you ware one of those sad few individuals, take our word for it:  this is something you will like.

INTRODUCTION TRAILER

YASHIRO TSURUGI

Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem (Genei Ibun Roku #FE in Japan) is slated for a Japanese launch on December 26, 2015 on the Wii U, developed by Atlus and published by Nintendo.  A western release is confirmed, but no date has been set yet. As soon as we know it, you’ll know it.

About Tom Tolios

Really smart, talks too much, loves the video games and the Star Wars and the Game of Thrones, likes the manga and some anime and knows that Kentaro Miura's Berserk is the greatest thing ever made.

    I’m certainly looking forward to it, but I’m a bit disappointed because I see a lot of western Nintendo gamers don’t seem too thrilled about it. Quite the opposite actually. Many of these people are perfectly fine with series like Mario, but they seem all too quick to dismiss this because it looks “like something that came out of an anime”. In other words, they are complaining about originality, but that has never been a problem before because again, Mario games always sell like hotcakes, and they have the most reused stories ever. So I’m both looking forward to it’s possible release, and worrying that the western Nintendo gamers may cause the game to not be localized. Money talks of course, and if Nintendo or anybody else doesn’t see enough profit in it, they may not localize it. Or they may localize it, but they will just scrub it of any offensive material, and since many people are offended by anime, they will end up westernizing it (I don’t mean the art style, I mean references and the script. Things like that,)

    People want their cake and to eat it too. They complain that developers won’t release games on the Wii U and bemoan the lack of mature games on the platform, but are perfectly fine censoring games, and that extends to the gaming experience as well. Mention any of these things: mods, cheats, a gender option, fanservice,, mention any of these things and express dislike with these things, If it were me, because the market doesn’t look very favorable to the kind of games I would like and that do well on other platforms like pc, ps4, psvita, I wouldn’t put out a game on it. So the end result is that these kind of games don’t do well and as a result fewer games of their type are made and/or localized.

    I hope this game get people to play other Shin Megami Tensei games, its one of those franchises that Nintendo itself and their fans should be proud to have most of the games exclusively on Nintendo platforms.

    This is all just my opinion of course , I love Shin Megami Tensei games so much.
