Famitsu Scan Genei Ibunroku Page 1 640 x 360

Kiria Kurono from Genei Ibun Roku

The scans from the most recent issue of Famitsu have been released online by fans. The newest issue features a number of upcoming Nintendo games, such as Chibi-Robo!: Zip Lash, Monster Hunter X,  Monster Strike 3DS, and perhaps most notably for us here, Genei Ibun Roku #FE. The scans for the latter prominently feature the new Mirage designs for Tharja and Virion, both originally from Fire Emblem Awakening, in addition to other recently-announced new characters. Scans from the section for each title can be found in the gallery below. Famitsu appears to be focusing primarily on Monster Hunter X in this section, with 10 pages dedicated to it.

In addition, Famitsu contained new information about the newly-revealed characters to appear in Genei Ibun Roku #FE, including some voice actors and information on the Mirages and their respective Masters.

The Mirage Draug is voiced by Takeuchi Ryouta, and is an Armor Knight who boasts a high defense and wields a giant battleaxe. He is summoned by elementary schooler Mamori Minamoto. Virion is voiced by Hiromichi Kogami, and is the Mirage summoned by upperclassman Eleonora Yumizuru, and much like his appearance in Awakening is a noble-blooded archer. Tharja has no announced voice actor yet, and is summoned by top musician Kiria Kurono. She uses a staff in combat and, much like in Fire Emblem Awakening, uses forbidden arts. She also assists Kiria in regular life.

Chibi-Robo!: Zip Lash is slated for release on October 9, 2015 on Nintendo 3DS in North America. Monster Hunter X releases in Japan for 3DS on November 28. Monster Strike 3DS is a Nintendo 3DS port of the popular smartphone game of the same title, with only a vague 2015 release date given for Japan. Genei Ibun Roku #FE launches in Japan on December 26, 2015 and in 2016 in other regions for Wii U.
