Hmmm...that'll be interesting. Kind of weird, but interesting.

But Nintendo came up with Pokemon Conquest, so it shouldn't be more bizarre then that.

I thought that was the point, ah damn now you got me worried. I hope it's not a game with a bunch of previous characters trying to fit in, I'd prefer something brand new and totally fresh.

If Atlus have no involvement beyond the license, my anticipation will sink immediately.

Has anyone come up with any sort of a plausible idea as to how this would work?

I'm thinking something like the Devil Survivor series (in a sense), with summons being a dual partner ala Fire Emblem Awakening.

I'm not a fan of SMT, so I don't even know what kind of anything to expect at all, but I did play a bit of Devil Survivor.

You aren't familiar with any games outside of atlus works? Intelligent systems have more or less the same talent that atlus has when it comes to the 3 things you mentioned. I really don't think this a cross-over game with characters either,but I could be wrong.

It's being presented by Atlus and SMT has top billing. More then that most other collabs have the other company developing the title. Very unlikely Atlus does so little.

Normally when Nintendo does a collaboration, they make it so both parties participate in the development. Not worried about this a bit, tbh

Pretty left field for a crossover but then again, Majin Tensei was quite similar to Fire Emblem.

I think it'll be more interesting to see SMT Fans vs. FE Fans. Sure, there's overlap, but you're also bringing two different, sometimes rabid (lol) fanbases in one place.

THINK OF THE DRAMA.

I was hoping for a FE game today, but totally didn't expect this.

Sadly I've got almost zero knowledge of SMT, but there's always a first!

EDIT

For Fire Emblem, play Fire Emblem: Awakening on the 3DS.

SMT 3 Nocturne on Ps2.

I say Radiant Dawn on Wii but most would disagree. Probably better waiting till next month for Awakening.

I can't think of any other way to make this work in a story perspective.

The last FE, Awakening, in its DLC content, introduced "talismans" used by mages to summon spirits of ancient heroes (previous FE characters) and send them to fight.

Either way they go with this project gameplay-wise, I could see the whole "talisman/summoned spirits" idea being used here, especially if they're going to feature all those characters from different games like teased in the promo.

I'm kidding! I've probably played an Intelligent Systems game, even (Just not Fire Emblem)! Did they do Advance Wars? That sounds right.

Anyway, I'm not a fan of their musicians or artists (I'm not not a fan, mind), whereas I'm a huge fan of MegaTen art and music. The reason I'm so hyped is because in my mind at the moment, it's a game created by these developers that I love. If they aren't involved, then my interest drops to near zero.

I bought my Xbox 360 (RIP) for two games (Gears + EDF2017). It's a shame that platform didn't have much of a follow up in terms of worthwhile exclusives. With Wii U at least you know it's going to be different i.e. better.

This looks really intriguing. I love SMT and I love Fire Emblem so this is a win-win regardless of whether it's FE in SMT universe or SMT in FE universe. An SMT SRPG game with permadeath like FE? That'd be a reason to get a Wii U.

Trailer had "Atlus Presents" at the beginning, and SMT got top billing. I think it's safe to say this is Atlus' game. IS was only barely shown at the end.

Either way, I have just as much respect for IS as I do Atlus (they're arguably Nintendo's best developer), so I'm not worried about who's heading the project. Both developers are known for sticking to old-school difficulty and having high respect for their fanbases. It's a match made in heaven, honestly.

I'd be ok with Atlus taking over. I want IS to be working on a console FE or A new AW and I really dig SMT's presentation so I wouldn't have to worry about quality.

What I am worried about is the strategy portion falling closer to Devil Survivor than Fire Emblem.

I think this is extremely likely if the game is an Atlus production.

It doesn't even have to be first, just play it at some point. SRPGs don't get much better than PoR.

Are the Fire Emblem crew going to be summoning demons? :0

Also, I know it's mainline SMT, and I don't mind the Persona Crew being left out since they've got their own cross-over series in P4Arena which looks like it might expand to the full Persona Cast, but I wish we had the awesome armored soldier from Strange Journey included.


EDIT: Here's an idea...the SMT Cast summons the ghosts of the Medieval Fire Emblem characters. :0
