This Week In Imports: Will Japan Show More Affection For Persona Or Fire Emblem?


imageFire Emblem Fates launches in Japan with a Pokémon-like release. The strategy RPG’s story will split into different paths depending on what version you get after chapter six. Nintendo also has a special edition release with both story paths plus an extra storyline. The digital version is unique since it gives players a choice, but locks the path once players choose which way to go.


Persona 4: Dancing All Night also debuts in Japan with a canon storyline that takes place after Persona 4: Golden. The Vita music game has remixes of Persona tunes and makes Nanako playable.
