Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem Is At Least Partly Set In Modern Times

Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem, the upcoming crossover RPG by Nintendo and Atlus, will take place in the modern world, a producer at Nintendo has revealed.

 

Speaking with the Hobby Consolas magazine, Hitoshi Yamagami (Xenoblade, Pandora’s Tower, Fire Emblem: Awakening) shared, “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.”

 

“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.”

 

Yamagami added, “Oops! I shouldn’t say that the game takes place in the real world. We haven’t announced it, right?”

 

The idea of a Fire Emblem game in modern times doesn’t sound as outrageous as one might think. In fact, Intelligent Systems, the series’ developer, considered the idea of a modern-day or even sci-fi setting during the development of Fire Emblem: Awakening. That said, it wouldn’t be surprising at all for Fire Emblem’s traditional medieval setting to play a role in the game as well.

 

Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem has no release date. In fact, we know nothing about it, other than that it’s an RPG and now that the modern-day world is probably involved.
