Tokyo Mirage Session’s Footage Explains Idolasphere Dungeons



Like the Persona series, Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE allows players to head into Idolasphere dungeons to fight enemies and find treasures as they try to solve problems. Nintendo’s Mastering Dungeons trailer spends over two minutes showing what can happen during an excursion, explaining certain enemy encounters, highlighting some NPCs, and showing what Gangrel looks like in the JRPG.


Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE offers a third-person dungeon-crawling experience. Once you head into an Idolasphere and begin exploring, you’ll see physical representation of mirage enemies in the dungeon’s corridors and rooms. Running into one will begin a turn-based battle, but Itsuki can also slash at them with a sword to start the battle and get the upper hand. Standard mirages are represented by red cloaked figures. Gold cloaked enemies are rare mirages that drop rare items when defeated. There are also savage mirage encounters, indicated by black cloaked figures, who are more powerful than usual and drop better loot. Be careful when running around to get an enemy, as traps can be encountered that block your way, summon more enemies, or send you to different areas.


The Gangrel boss, inspired by the Fire Emblem Awakening character, appears at the one minute, nine second point of the video. We get to see him use the Reversal of Fortunes ability, which summons additional mirage reinforcements to the battle, as well as a Dire Slice Ultra attack that sees his head and collar flying off to damage one of your party members. Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon’s Lorenz appears for another cameo in this trailer.


Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE will come to the Nintendo Wii U on June 24, 2016.
