Details were, sadly, scant regarding Shin Megami Tensei x Fire Emblem at E3. Today, we’ve learned some new tidbits about the anticipated RPG.
Hitoshi Yamagami, a director at Intelligent Systems, recently sat down with with Hobby Consolas Magazine to discuss the game. “For a long time, I wanted to create a [Fire Emblem] on our times, on the real world,” he said. “Imagine a Pegasus that comes from the sky and lands on the Building 109 of Shibuya, Tokyo. I always thought that would be incredible. At the same time, I know it’s hard because of how [Fire Emblem] is. I visited many companies to express these ideas. When I went to Atlus, I was told that Shin Megami Tensei together with Fire Emblem is what I wanted. So, I soon said that to Intelligent Systems and started this very special collaboration. Oops! I shouldn’t say that the game takes place in the real world. We haven’t announced it, right”
I think he just announced it.
Predictably, Nintendo has refused to comment about the future of the franchise. Could a new one be in the works? Time will tell.
