During yesterday’s Nintendo Direct presentation, Atlus confirmed that the most outlandish game of the Wii U’s 2016 lineup finally has a title and release date we can look forward to. Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem, as it has been referred to as in the States, or Genei Ibun Roku #FE in Japan, is now officially called Tokyo Mirage Sessions FE in North America.
It will be released on June 24 for the Wii U console.
Seeing how this game is a celebration of not only Fire Emblem and Shin Megami Tensei but also J-pop culture, Atlus and Nintendo will be unable to provide a full audio translation without losing the feeling of the Japanese setting. Instead, the North American release will contain the original Japanese audio track, and only subtitles and English menu options will be added.
Of all the great JRPGs coming out in 2016, I still believe this one is the craziest of the bunch, and I’ve waited a long time to see how these classic franchises mesh up with such a bubblegum presentation. June 24 can’t come soon enough.
