IGN At PAX East 2016: Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Could Be the Perfect Way to Wait for Persona 5

Fire Emblem characters in a music-inspired RPG with open world elements makes for something weird and wonderful.

Why? It's got a lot of similarities to Persona.

After seeing THIS scene, (obvious spoiler alert)


even I started having doubts...

Stealth20k2713d ago

For all we know it could be better than Persona 5. We have no idea what persona 5 is. We know this is a fantastic rpg.

Stealth20k2713d ago (Edited 2713d ago )

Could be a GOTY contender. Won Dengekis best rpg award in japan.

All PAX East hands on previews have been overwhelmingly positive

Eiyuuou2713d ago

It looks perfect gameplay-wise. I'm just worried about the story...


'Tokyo Mirage Sessions ♯FE' Lacks Fire Emblem

While Tokyo Mirage Sessions ♯FE is easily recognized as a Shin Megami Tensei spinoff, it fails to present itself as the crossover it is meant to be.

It was way too much idol culture which idk why they thought itd be a great idea for an smt/fe crossover. I honestly wish they just made it to be a highschool/academy style of game like persona. So much potential it had but its whatever. The game was just ok.

CrimsonWing69531d ago

The problem is when this was first announced it was literally Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem. All they needed to do was keep the Fire Emblem strategy gameplay and incorporate Shin Megami Tensei elements and aesthetics. Or hell, somehow collide the universes together with Fire Emblem gameplay.

What we got was really out of left field with such a mashup. I think that’s why it’s disappointing for those expecting Fire Emblem in this game.

I liked TMS but yeah it missed some charm that both series carry in spades


What do you need to know about Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore

Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE is coming back! In 2020, Nintendo is bringing its collaboration with Atlus to the Switch. As is common with these Wii U ports, a little something extra is being added in for the encore performance. But what should someone expect in general, in the event they missed the RPG the first time around? Well, it is something that is a lot more like Persona than either Fire Emblem or Shin Megami Tensei.

I hate this game! No thanks!

That it is censored. The End.

CrimsonWing691363d ago

Dang it I thought I was all clever and clicked on the comments to write that.

Well played, sir!

Forgot the whole 'RE5 is racist" because you have a white character killing black zombies in a country mostly populated by black people.

BlackDoomAx1554d ago

Omg, that was really a thing? I played it at the time and it didn't ring my bell at all xD

Chocoburger1554d ago

Unfortunately, yes.

Its important to take story context into perspective here. The Umbrella Corporation is taking advantage of the impoverished people of Africa, by performing experiments on them, far away from the eyes of 24/7 newscasters.

Given the context, the game makes sense.

BlackDoomAx1554d ago

Oh yeah, I remember now. There was a movement called 'black zombies lives matter'.

SinkingSage1554d ago

Not on the article because this writer would clearly have agreed with the stance that RE5 is racist, it's pretty obvious by the choice of controversies / words.

DeadlyAzuril1554d ago

The very first example just shoes how retarded the author is.

2pacalypsenow1554d ago

Yeah I looked at the authors picture, and that says everything I need to know about him.

AK911554d ago

This is sadly now a requirement for being a game journo these days.

GOODKylePS1554d ago

Calls people retarded for having an opinion and confuses shoes for shows 🙄

Juusterey1554d ago

It's called a misspelling

DeadlyAzuril1550d ago

What's the problem Kyle, got some sand in your vagina?
