As if the very existence of a crossover between the Fire Emblem and Shin Megami Tensei series wasn’t crazy enough. Hitoshi Yamagami, producer of games like Xenoblade Chronicles and Fire Emblem: Awakening, recently spoke about Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem‘s setting. According to him, the game could take place, at least partially, in a modern city setting.
“For a long time, I’ve wanted to create a Fire Emblem in our times, in the real world. Imagine a Pegasus that comes from the sky and lands on Building 109 of Shibuya, Tokyo. I always thought that would be incredible,” said Yamagami. “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.”
However, Yamagami specifically said that the new crossover game will not take place in the real world. Also, we probably will see some of the traditional medieval settings from the Fire Emblem games. Other than these scant details, we still know next to nothing about Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem, save that is a thing, and it’s coming out for Wii U.
