  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    Nintendo seems to be in a love with cross over series here.^_^ But what can i say? I am reallllllllllllllllly hyped for this two great rpg to cross over.^_^

  • This year is going to be crazy!

  • kylehyde

    this game and the possible xenoblade 2 are more than enough reasons to buy a Wii U.

    • ronin4life

      My tablet died before the monolith game was shown.

      What was it?

      • kylehyde
      • Showmeyomoves

        It looked like Xenoblade… in HD. And with playable mechs.

        • ronin4life

          Just saw the vid on Nintendo Everything.


        • ShawnOtakuSomething

          and more control

    • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

      Well, and we still haven’t seen anything from Retro. So i believe it is more than enough to make me buy a Wii U.^_^

    • StarWarudo

      Yeah, I had no interest in a WII-U till today. This game, Monolith’s new game, and the new Zelda are more than enough for me to run out and get a WII-U.

    • QBninja

      This is gonna be a interesting year for us gamers.

  • yoUNg_grOUp568

    You had my curiosity,but now you have my attention.

    • Tails the Foxhound

      Lol, Django.

  • Barrylocke89


    Did not see that coming…did ANYONE see that coming?
    This is cool, this is awesome…but what

    • SetzerGabbiani

      NOBODY saw that coming. And it’s clearly the Megaten Bomb!

    • Christopher Nunes

      Your Avatar picture clearly expresses your utter shock of this announcement perfectly.

      Indeed I did not see thing coming either.

  • Samurai_Heart


  • idrawrobots

    The video for this crossover kept making me more and more emotional. Only NIntendo!

  • KingGunblader

    First I was like, “Wait a tick”, and then I was like “BRB BUYING WII U NOW”

  • XYZ_JolteonZ980

    Wow Wii u finally gets a killer app two more and Ill finally get the platform. This has huge potential.

    • ronin4life

      What did you think of what else was shown? I’m thinking between all that and the unnanounced 3rd party stuff the wiiu is shaping up to be pretty great.

      • XYZ_JolteonZ980

        The monolith soft game looked like it had potential, but Im afraid it may be a cheap Final Fantasy knock off so Im not putting it in killer app tier yet.

  • Did not see that coming whatsoever, but no objections whatsoever! Both are well-known franchises of their parents companies which handle them carefully.

    • Ugh, yes, a hundred percent this. Nintendo has been handling Fire Emblem Awakening REALLY well on both shores, so I have no reason not to look forward to this. The Shin Megami Tensei games have, in my opinion, always been held up to a certain level of excellence and they’ve never disappointed me. It’s like a match made in…well, because of SMT, Hell.

  • EmptyWarrior

    Well this is a surprise. Really wondering how this’ll work out.

  • Brian

    I can not fathom how this combo would work but I want it!

  • Hraesvelgr

    The trailer looked kind of fake/badly made to me, but it’s on Nintendo UK’s official youtube, so… huh.

  • キロ

    This was certainly interesting to hear about!


    • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

      Hype Train is coming!!!!

      • SprintsMcGee

        Is your body reggie?

    • KingRuff

      Not even the Hype Train is enough to hold all this hype.

  • Tails the Foxhound

    I’m sorry I must have had something crazy in my ears (and eyes). Which two series are crossing over? What’s even gonna be the plot for this cocamany insanity, should be a doozy.

    • Anon-non

      What’s a cross-over without the spilling over of multiple universes?

      • Ferofax

        The convenient thing is, SMT’s play with dimensions can easily set it up for an accidental overlap with Fire Emblem’s universe!

        …I’ve a feeling this is gonna be batshit crazy hard though. Imagine Fire Emblem permadeath on an already difficult SMT game!


    • SetzerGabbiani

      Looking at SMT IV’s initial setting, which is pretty similar to Fire Emblem’s medieval setting, that seems like the logical place for things to devolve into glorious chaos. Toss in the Amala network for good measure and you have yourself a crazy plot.

  • Kibbitz

    Well, that’s certainly one reason to buy a WiiU.

  • XypherCode

    With this and Wind Waker HD, Nintendo just pre-ordered my whole savings account. :))

  • ronin4life

    So much awesomeness… despite the awful VC setup…
    And this is just from Nintendo…

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    Nintendo real know how to make great crossovers <3

  • SetzerGabbiani

    MEGATON, MEGATON, MEGATON…..MEGATEN!! Holy BALLS! !OE*[email protected](#&@(#&$(YEURU. This is right up there and maybe BEYOND the Wind Waker and original Zelda announcement!!…maybe not Monolith’s though.

  • Zeidge

    hype. Hype. HYPE!!!

    The one game I did not see coming to force me to get a Wii U even if I will have no idea how its going to be pulled off.

  • Jack Frazee

    This seems incredibly odd and random.

    That being said, I want this NOW. I’d promised myself I wouldn’t buy Wii U unless something truly worthy comes along – this may just be that worthy game I’ve been looking for.

  • Nemesis_Dawn

    As someone who has not liked anything I’ve seen from the Wii U, I’ll say if this gets localized, I’d definitely start giving a serious look at the system.

    • Anon-non

      Well, good news! Since it was broadcasted on the American and European Nintendo Direct stream, it’ll most likely be localized.

      • Nemesis_Dawn

        Well, they come up with a few more games I want, I’ll pick one up. Right now, it’s this, Bayonetta 2, and whatever the new Monolith game is. Don’t care about Mario. Don’t care about Smash Brothers. Don’t care about Zelda. They whip out, say, another five exclusive games, I might just pick this up as a third current gen-system.

        • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

          Wonderful 101?^_^

          • Nemesis_Dawn

            Surprisingly, for a Platinum game, it isn’t doing it for me, which surprised me as much as anybody.

    • Enzo

      The fact that the North American (and probably European as well, since it might be the same) showed it at all seems to imply it will be coming.

  • zferolie

    … man I wish I watched the stream to see the chats reactions to this. I forgot what time it was at.

    This is got me most curious. How does a crossover like this work?

    • Zeik56

      If I had to guess it would be a Fire Emblem style SRPG with SMT
      characters. I am curious whether it will still have demon summoning with
      all those crossover characters though.

      • Probably will use the Devil Survivor Gameplay with Fire Emblem elements

  • Go2hell66

    never in a million years would i have seen this cross over coming

  • Oscar Alberto Abrego Suarez

    I didnt wanted a WII-U but now………. damm you Nintendo.

  • Mayjay

    I need to wipe off my keyboard.

  • SolidusSnake

    Uhh, ok? Guess I’m getting a Wii U :3

  • Whoa!

  • Nicolas Simonpietri

    What the fuck ?

  • SetzerGabbiani

    Just seeing Hitoshura and Lyndis in the same teaser made me weep like a child…..This has been an amazing week for gaming news. And this will hopefully raise base Megaten’s profile in the west.

  • r0gamer940

    does this include the U.S because if it does nintendo is getting my money for a new wii u

    • It was shown in the North American presentation, so guess who wants your/our money? ;)

    • It was announced at the NoA direct too, so yes.

      • I guess that kinda confirms a international release for SMTIV

  • neetyneety

    Holy wow. Just…. woooow. All I can say is, this game is going to be so legen— WAIT FOR IT UNTIL THE DAY COMES OUT — DAIRY.

  • Mother of god…

  • r0gamer940

    this info pretty much confirms shin megami tensei 4 for the 3ds in the us

    • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

      I don’t see it that way but damnnnnn it is now the future is looking really bright.^_^

    • SetzerGabbiani

      That’s a pretty good point. We probably won’t get that announcement officially until Soul Hackers is released as it probably still has the SMT IV demo on it…in English.

      • SamuelKikaijin

        Its not a demo, its a video

        • puchinri

          Is that confirmed. . .?

          • Barrylocke89

            SH is referring to the SMT4 preview that was in the Japanese version of Soul Hackers. That was basically a teaser trailer for SMT4. It hasn’t been confirmed that the West will get SMT4 (though if the west got Soul Hackers and is getting this crossover, it might as well be confirmed)

          • puchinri

            Oh, haha. I remember that, yeah. A demo for us would be very nice though~.

          • Barrylocke89

            I agree, it’d be nice, but remember that SMTIV doesn’t even have a Japanese release date yet. I doubt Atlus USA would be able to pump out a playable AND localized demo for it by April for Soul Hackers.

            I suppose if we’re lucky, we might see a demo of it in the future, but that will probably be WAY in the future. Etrian Odyssey IV only just got a demo announcement, and that game’s coming out in a couple of months.

          • puchinri

            True. And also very good points~.

    • ronin4life

      I thought that was already confirmed?


      • For the west he means. And it has not been officially, but might as well be now.

    • LightZero

      I don’t know why anyone would doubt that in the first place.

  • Elvick

    Wonder how long this ‘x’ trend will continue… not that I’m complaining.

  • Alena Ipatyeva

    I don’t know what to feel.

  • KuroNathan

    Well this came out of nowhere. I wonder if its going to use the FE system more or Devil Survivor system?

  • Ooh Bee


    • Ty Arnold


      …What? Does nobody else like Chiaki? Mud dolls, all of you.

    • Isaac Newton

      The only reason I play this game(Sarcasms)….

  • Locklear93

    I… what? So many crossovers lately.

  • Karibito

    When i saw that “Atlus presents” i thought, omg Persona 5 is coming to WiiU!

    But this collaboration is very interesting too.
    Lets see what will come of it.

  • Spirit Macardi

    Darn it Nintendo, whenever I think you can’t possibly be more awesome you go and do stuff like this XD

    Seriously, Fire Emblem and Shin Megami Tensei? I don’t know what kind of drugs or alcohol you have to take to think of a crossover like this, but god damn keep taking them!

  • Hinataharem

    I’m curious to see how this works. Probably the heroes from both universes band together to fight some giant evil monster dude.

  • I think the most exciting part of the trailer is the Intelligent Systems logo near the end.

  • DesmaX

    My brain can’t handle this

  • benhofb

    WHAT THE HELL?! IS THIS REAL LIFE? My two favorite franchises in one game?! Crap. I am going to have to buy a wii u.

  • Tales_of_Master

    Well this seals it, I have to get a WiiU. Let’s hope that with Sega’s collaboration with Nintendo we can see Bayonetta in the game, as throwback to Nocturne. Make it happen Nintendo.

    • Ferofax

      Mmm, and get Dante back in too.

  • Lexaus_the_Alchemist

    Weirder things have happened… =/

    Will wait and see…

  • Zonic505

    Wow, absolutely did NOT see this coming. Then again, the same was said for Pokemon x Nobunaga’s Ambition.

    In any case, I seriously want to see how this turns out.

  • Wonder if any of the Persona characters will appear.

  • AlteisenX

    …I MIGHT be sold on finally getting a Wii-U… Assuming this isn’t just a fighting game. Please be an SRPG/TRPG *prays*

  • RadShiro




  • Settsuo

    Hi, Wii U, i’m going to buy you.

  • Shadowman

    Take my money now Nintendo!

  • Tom_Phoenix




    Never in a million years did I expect something like this. Seriously, this is far more suprising than PxZ’s localisation or even Pokémon Conquest. I would have expected SMT x Pokémon sooner than this.

    I’m practically speechless…

    • SetzerGabbiani

      SMT x Pokemon would be awesome and not Farfetch’d. Hitoshura with a Houndoom seems logical to me.

    • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

      Digimon vs Pokemon suddenly looks possible.^_^

      • Tylor Boreas Makimoto

        Don’t play with my heart like that. Hearing such beautiful words as “Digimon X Pokemon releasing *insert date here* would probably stop it ;~;

      • Hound

        Digimon X Pokemon X Monster Rancher X Disgaea X Megami Tensei <3

  • Richard N

    Fire Emblem Shin Megami Tensei Crossover!? What!? That sounds stupid as he-

    OH MY ***KING GAWD DEMI-FIEND!1!11!!1 GIVE IT TO ME [email protected]!!!12!1!1!!2

    On a serious note, I always wanted a Megaten crossover in general, but I’ll take it. Also, since this is a crossover and instantly non-canon I seriously hope they consider giving the Megaten silent protagonists a voice or atleast have them talk. I think it’s gonna be even hard to carry an entire game when half of the cast don’t even talk. Or maybe they could pull it off, I dunno that’s one of my wishes anyway.

    Well, now to wait for some ridiculous Wii U deals just to play this damn game.

    • MrTyrant

      Yeah I would love a Megaten crossover only, but this is the close thing we are getting and frankly I love it too.

    • ash32121

      if it’s just about smt cast crossover, the amala network will collapse, as good as it’s sound, we don’t want YHVH to go apesht again, are we ?=))
      ah, i want atlus to make demi fiend once again become an optional boss =))

    • Isaac Newton

      Too bad for you I expect it to be non-voice LOL

  • FFmax

    Wait what?

  • MrTyrant

    This is weird…but awesome at the same time.

    Take my money atlus:

  • oh god…i cant even begin to imagine what this will be like, but it seems awesome!!! and if it isnt just an srpg, then it’s even better!!!

    • Ethan_Twain

      I’m gonna guess SRPG. Fire Emblem games have always been SRPGs, and SMT has been doing it lately too with the successful Devil Survivor brand. Since SRPG is what these franchises share in common (and also since it works well as a platform for a large scale crossover like this since you’ve got all your little dudes to move around) I would be surprised to see anything else.

      On the other hand, SRPG has NOT traditionally done all that well in the home console space. So this isn’t a lock – just a probability.

      • very sensible analysis. im playing through fire emblem awakening, and i take back my srpg comment, as it is officially my favorite srpg that i have ever played. SUCH a good game!

  • Ethan_Twain

    This… this is ridiculous. This is too good to be true. This is better than what I had imagined. And you know what’s even better? You know how Nintendo’s been doing this really aggressive move to get third party support by establishing either licensing out their properties (like Metroid to Team Ninja) or handling Western publishing (like Dragon Quest)? Atlus has put a lot of software out on Nintendo handhelds, but there hasn’t been any collaboration with Nintendo yet. Here it is. This relationship is only going to become closer.

    • chroma816

      But is that totally a good thing? I can see, after a time, Ninty trying to limit Atlus from doing stuff with SMT and Persona. Censorship and whatnot.

      • M’iau M’iaut

        The foulest language game in the history of video games was on a Nintendo console first. One need only check out the third party survival horror titles on the Wii to see that gore and scares are not disallowed either. These titles may not be their first focus, but they certainly have not recently spent a lot of time dictating green blood.

        • Testsubject909

          Never quite did understand why the remake of Conker’s Bad Fur Day on the Xbox had censorship.

          • Tylor Boreas Makimoto

            Xbox is Microsoft. Microsoft is American. America is, well, America. Nuff said :D

        • NTaiyokun

          Let’s not forget Eternal Darkness, which NINTENDO PUBLISHED has blood and supernatural horror too.

          • Lordshade

            …And is also technically first party, as Nintendo owned Silicon Knights at the time.

      • ash32121

        index corp is atlus real mother, so you don’t have to be scare about ninty =))

      • Ethan_Twain

        Nintendo of Japan doesn’t have any history of enforcing censorship of any kind since 2000 or so. Nintendo allows and even supports a very wide range of software on their platforms these days. I mean, Bayonetta is still going “Do you want to touch me?” in black leather in the Nintendo published Bayonetta 2 for heaven’s sakes. The problem comes up when there’s a Nintendo game that Nintendo of America doesn’t think will sell or will hurt the brand image. Games like Last Story, Fatal Frame Wii, or Mother 3. Nintendo doesn’t do censorship, so they just… don’t release it at all.

        BUT: I think that in this case that’s a total non-issue. Because Atlus is also a publisher, and they will be MORE than happy to handle these projects (and collect the resulting profits) in America. Europe might have a little bit more to worry about, but then again Nintendo of Europe is way better about localizing stuff themselves than NOA.

        • $36598391

          Nintendo of Japan rarely enforced censorship at all
          look at the Japanese Super Castlevania IV and the North American release
          blood was replaced with slime on certain levels and the intro was altered heavily

      • LexKitteh

        I understand your concern with Nintendos “Kid-Friendly” image, but they’re publishing Bayonetta 2 now. I don’t think they’re going to try and censor the games on their system.

      • Alexis Goitia

        Ahm, MADWORLD.
        Look it up, big boy.

    • Hound

      I find it kind of strange and interesting. With Nintendo’s Pokemon being a kid-friendly take on the earlier MegaTen games and that rivalry sparking inspiration on both sides (Atlus’ Devil Children wasn’t quite successful, but later SMT level-ups etc seemed to have been brought out of this.)

      Though I’d personally be ecstatic if Nintendo wanted a Devil Children x Pokemon, Atlus crossing with Fire Emblem seems like a much safer and perhaps more creative bet. I’m curious how this’ll develop.
      Like many others, I’ve been avoiding looking at the WiiU at all until Sony, Microsoft, Steam, and NVidia release their competition. But this (and other titles) may make force me to change my mind depending on the scale.

  • OverlordZetta

    I don’t even

  • AzureRyuujin

    Nintendo. Atlus.

    Take my entire savings.

  • keithmaxx

    I was swearing (in shock and glee) at my screen when I read SMT… and then Fire Emblem. Then my head asploded.

    • keithmaxx

      Seriously, Atlus has been having a great relationship with Nintendo lately, huh. Two of the best game publishing houses in the world working on a crossover? A.W.E.S.O.M.E.

  • Chim_era

    Okay my favorite two series EVER
    Ugh I’m going to have to buy a Wii U aren’t I?
    Well if long if the games keep coming … maybe

  • Masa

    damn it! will have to buy a wiiU now, short on cash as it is.

  • Brimfyre

    It’s been awhile since I was this surprised and excited by a game announcement. Two of my favorite franchises in one.

  • sugarum

    Well, time to buy a Wii U.

  • Krystal Henderson

    This is like a dream come true! Why is it on a system I don’t own?! WHY?!

    • Because SMT began on nintendo and Fire Emblem is Nintendo owned lol.

    • To make you buy the system, most likely.

      • Krystal Henderson

        That has to be it, and here I am planning on buying a bunch of games for my 3DS. Evil Nintendo, trying to….make money! I’ve never heard of such a thing!

  • Holly hell Nintendo, you just blew my mind today. I can’t even deal with all of this right now.

  • ivanchu77

    I hope they put Persona characters in the SMT side

    • ash32121

      i don’t think they will, look at the trailer again and it’s seem all of the character come from the mainline of the franchise

    • LightZero

      I hope not. Persona (well P3/P4) been over exposed. It’s time for the main series to become the king again.

    • Likely will not happen. Persona has only ever been on Sony consoles (with the exception of P4 Arena on 360 as well). But you never know, honestly though I hope they keep it with mainline SMT characters. Still will buy regardless.

    • Solomon_Kano

      Persona’s got enough exposure with its own name on things, I’d rather they just stick to SMT characters. Heck, we just had a P3/P4 fighter, and remakes for P2 and P4. No Persona here, please. I’d still buy, but I see no reason for them to be here.

  • AuraGuyChris

    I think this kind of confirms that we’re getting SMT IV for the 3DS outside Japan…
    But anyway, is this the year of crossovers? Looks like it.

    • Solomon_Kano

      With Atlus even bringing us Soul Hackers, I never doubted them on SMT IV. But anything to further show helps.

  • Nickie

    Excuse my ignorance but this is going to be localized to?! Honestly if it is then this and the Xenoblade dev’s game will make me get a Wii U now!

    Unless this is a pure fighting game like P4 Arena then I may pass. Either way this is going to be localized?

    • raymk

      Um why would it be a fighting game? Atlus only made that because they were partnered with Arc systems works who makes fighters. Neither of these 2 companies do fighters on their own.

    • Solomon_Kano

      Well, considering that this Nintendo Direct was broadcast in English and not just for Japan, I’d say that’s a very safe bet.

  • Natat

    … What? How could anyone think of doing such a random, yet potentially genius crossover? Now you have my attention WiiU, with this, Monolith’s new game and Bayo 2.

  • klkAlexar

    My two favorite series in one game. It’s like they really want me to buy a Wii U.

  • Coconut Flower

    Raidou Kuzunoha the XIV and Aigis for SMT X FE!

  • Aw Heng Wang Travis

    I remember reading somewhere, maybe here on Siliconera, that there would be a collaboration, and to look forward to it. I think it was Katsura Hoshino? I can’t remember.

    But damn, this is awesome news dood. I can’t get a Wii-U D= as much as I want to now.

  • Pichi

    Interest in getting Wii U shot up tremendously.

  • Hype get! Time to get familiar with the main SMT title and FE!! (Yeah I’m not too familiar with FE and my knowledge of SMT starts at Nocturne and end at SMT IV)

    I wonder is it going to be SRPG/RPG or fighting game?

  • TruSpindash

    This came seriously out of nowhere, but I could not be more excited, I am really curious to see how this game plays out.

  • chroma816

    I don’t even know how this is a thing, but I want it so bad that it’s not funny.


  • EdgeKun

    This. . . ok. To say this was unexpected would be my biggest understatement for the past half year or so.

  • This makes no sense

  • Trotmeister

    Two of my favorite series coming together. Somebody slap me.

    • Testsubject909

      *slaps you*
      Just go buy it day one.

      • Leon_Tekashi

        *Slaps Test*
        That’s means you too.

        • Tylor Boreas Makimoto

          *Slaps leon*
          SLAP FIGHT!

  • Astralwyrm

    =o its pokemon conquest all over again…. must buy… must buy!

  • JazzWithAttitude

    Hey, how the SMT protagonist will talk?And what about the names?

  • Yuuki

    that should be their cooperation project that will suprise many fans xd

  • LightZero

    All I have to say is about damn time the main title get the respect it deserves. I look forward to this. Between this, the new Smash Bros, Bayonetta 2, and the new Xeno related title I’m going to have buy me a Wii U.

  • Testsubject909

    So this is why I had an SMTXFE in my coffee…

    • MrSirFeatherFang

      Do you think you’ll be in this game?

    • Mister_Nep

      Mr. Francis York Morgan, it was a sign.
      The message said that a crossover would be fine.
      For if you combine these two companies together
      then you would get a game that can never reach the nether.

  • Jungo

    Swear to god I had a dream about this a year ago.

  • Mind blown, eyes full of tears, heart full of joy.

  • I would’ve never guessed this one. 0.0
    What the heck is this gonna be? XD
    Can I preorder it now?

  • MrJechgo

    I’m sorry, but my jaw can’t take another drop after this stream of news.

  • T-T this means no Advance Wars 3DS til 2014

    • Tylor Boreas Makimoto

      There there *pats hand*

  • kroufonz

    Woah, if nintendo keep doing good thing lke this (and more JRPG ) i may have to buy Wii U .

    could be a sign thatP5 will be Wiiu exclusive :P

    • While I’m not against it, that particular franchise has remained exclusive to Sony, with the exception of P4A on 360.

    • raymk

      Nope, p5 will be on 360 and ps3 just like catherine.

    • Solomon_Kano

      I wouldn’t count on that, but it being multiplatform between Sony and Ninty is a very real possibility. Then again, SMT and Persona are completely different franchises with the SMT name only being on Persona outside of Japan. So, actually, this says nothing about how P5 ends up. I still wouldn’t be surprised to see it on both Sony and Ninty’s platforms though.

    • Nope

    • Maybe that will be the title that reggie was talking about, who knows?

  • Wow, did not see this coming. I’m assuming it’s going to be a tactical RPG of some sort. Devil Survivor was awesome and Fire Emblem is a great strategy RPG series, so this game should be amazing. I’ll be sure to follow it, even though I have no plans on purchasing a Wii U.

  • Jirin



    *Buys a Wii U*

  • fireemblembeast

    Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat?! I knew that somehow a FE game would make me buy a wii u, but I didn’t think it would be a crossover! My friend always tells me about how I’d like this game(SMT) but I’ve never played it. I guess this is a good chance to jump in…? Can’t wait to hear more!
    FE13’s popularity was bound to produce something like this. I hope other titles I’d like are announced for wii u though, so I don’t just play this.

  • Mister_Nep

    Wait they’re going to combine MegaTen and Fire Emblem? Err….my censor senses are tingling. I’ll keep an eye on this, but I’m not optimistic.

    • Herok♞

      Why would your censor senses be tingling? I couldn’t even tell you the last time nintendo censored a game

  • fireemblembeast

    We probably won’t see this for at LEAST another year in the west, but still, all aboard the hype train! And FE13 still hasn’t even quite come out yet…

  • Junko Enoshima

    I don’t have the money to buy the Wii U, but I’d buy it just for this.

    • raymk

      Its not like these games are coming out anytime soon, I give this game a 2014 release at the earliest.(they could surprise me though)

  • Riian

    So much hype, so little details. Sounds very cool.

  • Mavalex
    • Prinnydoom

      Right there with ya i am Yu and Kanji

  • Wondering_Zero

    To wake up and see this announcement…Oh man, this will be one of those crossover games that’ll go down in history. Never in my wildest dreams did I think “Hey, what would happen if SMT and Fire Emblem were mixed together?” Well, I’m going to find out eventually.

    Now if you’ll excuse me I’m going to be hunting down a Wii U.

  • puchinri

    I don’t even know what the game will be about, but I want it already.

    • Solomon_Kano

      Seriously. I don’t even care what genre the game ends up being. Puzzle, action, RPG, or sports, it doesn’t even matter. This is just too awesome.

      • Hound

        SMT x Fire Emblem Casino game with Puzzles!!

  • Ty Arnold

    A crossover between literally my two favorite franchises of all time.

    Could be fun, I guess.

  • Sam Park

    Okay this confirms the other 3rd Party guys for SSB4 is Atlus, i am now dead set on this, also this is the 1st console smt game, (Beside P4 Arena) and they decided to combine it with Fire Emblem, a Very Difficult Game (And SMT is also a very difficult Game) are they trying to kill us?

    • Barrylocke89

      First console SMT Game? Do you mean first Current Gen console game? Because SMT has been on consoles many times before now (MT, SMT, the many PS2 games, Soul Hackers…)

    • Solomon_Kano

      What? For one, Persona’s a spin-off of SMT, not actually SMT. That aside, SMT started on consoles. It’s been around for a good long while now.

    • …………………………Yes. :D

  • ragingmerifes

    Awww… I didn’t want to buy a Wii U… now I have to buy it just for this…
    But anyway, SMT back on a table console…? Hmmmm…

  • Prinnydoom


  • Will Jay

    Coming next in Nintendo’s line of third party crossovers, following Pokemon + Nobunaga’s Ambition (AKA Pokemon Conquest) and Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem:

    Ni No Kuni + Earthbound
    Legend of Zelda X Monster Hunter
    Little Battlers eXperience VS Custom Robo
    Metroid(X Castle)vania

    And more!

    • Solomon_Kano

      Pokemon x Monster Hunter would be better! There’s even an excellent name in that combo: PokeMonster Hunter! It writes itself!

      No, but I would like to see that combo. The internet’s already sold me on the concept lol. Metroidvania would be hilarious though.

    • LynxAmali

      LBX and CR?

      Could really kill for a new Custom Robo game anyway.

      Then again, that’s not even considering the fact that Danball is the spiritual successor to Custom Robo in more ways then one.

      • Christopher Nunes

        I second that motion! I love Custom Robo and I want another one! A crossover with LBX is a match made in heaven! ^_^

    • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

      Ni no Kuni + Earthound will make my wallet bleed……. a lot there.T_T

  • Solomon_Kano

    I wonder what the other crossovers Iwata mentioned will be? Well, he actually said collaborations, but between this and Pokemon Conquest, I wouldn’t be surprised if they were also crossovers.

    I mean, with out of the box thinking like this, I can’t even picture what would be next.

    Mario Kart X Need for Speed?
    Metroid X Space Channel 5?
    Legend of Zelda X Tales?
    Star Fox X Zone of the Enders!?!?

    3 of those, I would totally buy.

  • ryne11

    I have the weirdest boner…

  • XiaomuArisu

    So does it has perma-death?
    And mudo and hama skills?
    if yes………..

  • ryne11

    We are gonna get Majin Tensei with Main series Megaten Characters and FE characters?

  • DurableTomb

    Anyone else hoping that Dante (circa Nocturne) will show up as a hidden ally, like Cloud did in FF Tactics?

    • raymk

      Didn’t know cloud was a cameo in FF tactics, now I know :).

  • foopy

    So this is the big, shocking collaboration that was hinted at last year. Totally unexpected, but it should still be awesome.

  • Tiramii

    This is the MAIN reason why I want a Wii U. Nintendo Land was cute but didn’t sell me on the system.

  • Oh hell to the yeah. I need this game right now.

  • Amine Hsu Nekuchan

    How? What? How? …What?… How? There doesn’t exists words the ‘wat’ this fills me with.

    • LynxAmali

      Exactly my reaction.

      EXACTLY my reaction.

  • Arizato

    Does this mean that we might see SMT 4 characters in the next Smash Bros game? : D

    • Unlikely though that would be cool.

  • Leonardo Duarte

    When I read the headline I was all about:
    “Da Fucki I just read?!”

  • KingGunblader

    Between 3DS and Wii U, Nintendo is bring back the JRPG in a pretty huge way this year. Exciting times :D

  • Yuriangels

    *cry* why did i get a Wii-U this year!!!!

  • Akai Ringo

    this is unbelievable news on the same level as the “Project X Zone coming to the West” stuff. i’m absolutely shitting my pants here. I have no idea what the heck kind of game this can be gameplay-wise, but just the notion of having my precious Florina and Lyn teaming up with SMT characters (dare i dream a Kuzunoha Raidou!) to take down some evil doers… oh man the tears. they won’t stop flowing!

  • Pockystix


  • Ben Sylvia

    And so Nintendo continues there sudden interest in investing in seemingly impossible crossovers.

    Unlike Pokemon Conquest, first day buy for this one.

    Edit: also, 2013: Year of Nintendo: again.

  • Hound

    Atlus, makers of the most religiously controversial & Masochistically difficult RPG series to have survived every generation since the NES, presenting a crossover with Nintendo’s Fire Emblem? And it looks like they’re putting the protagonists of all the core Shin Megami Tensei games in? Hell yes!

    Haven’t seen news like this since Nintendo released info on a Mario RPG presented by Squaresoft.

  • Maia Kasoya

    Someone in the localized Soul Hackers article back then said Atlus doing something awesome was a given, or something among those lines.
    If I didn’t believe them then, then I certainly believe them now!

  • TatsuyaKyo

    Yuu vs. Ephraim (Great leader/tactician)
    Minato vs. Marth (Blue-haired, androgynous leader)
    Naoto vs. Lucius (Trap-battle)
    Kanji vs. Ike (Manly men)


    Teddy vs. Fa????? (Team Mascot?)

    The possibilities are endless…

    • ShawnOtakuSomething

      I want Persona in this, but we got IF

    • Isaac Newton

      As far as I know the Persona series was on the sony bandcamp while the main SMT except SMT Nocture(I don’t SMT: IF was on Nintendo) are all Nintendo’s Babies

  • Hound

    Here’s hoping for a Digimon X Pokemon X Monster Rancher X Disgaea X Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Children game if this works.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    Somewhere, there’s some FanFic writer who think that Nintendo stole his idea…

  • Totally called it!

  • Syn

    My pants!!!!!!!!!! My ass!!!!!!!! they cant take this many xplosions in such a short time, I need a doctor…………… and a Wii-U

  • Christopher Nunes

    Wow… with all these news coming out lately, PxZ getting localized, the next Xeno game, Yarn Yoshi, Wind Waker HD remake (I prefer Majora’s Mask remake for the 3DS first and I miss the cel-shading in the original WW), the next new Zelda game, announcement of the next Mario games, SSB4 appearing at e# this year, and now this!

    Seriously… I did NOT see thing crossover happening at all! Did anyone see this coming at all? Anyone? No one… really? Dang, they really surprised everyone and rocked the entire world with this news!

    Now maybe there’s hope for a Digimon X Pokemon crossover fighting game! I really like to see these two monster franchise to brawl like never before as they finally meet face to face and have the world decide who’s the mon of all mons!

  • Alexander Aubert

    now i have 2 reason to buy wii u and you’re right atlus this is an unexpected collaboration

  • Isaac Newton

    SMT x FE???
    why not pokemon(cuz it really fits on SMT) or any dark theme game from nintendo??


    Holy sh*t will the Fire Emblem Characters handle Lucifer’s Wrath or Ultimate Pixie’s Megidolaon?

  • Isaac Newton

    But the real question is…..
    Is Mara the Final Boss???!!!
    If there is Mara then Take my money and my body already!

  • Tails the Foxhound

    I’m surprised the MegaTen 4 and FE Awakening characters are in this, that’s a pretty fast turn around for those characters in a spin-off.
