It’s another re-release, though one that I never got to play on the Wii U. The Nintendo x Atlus RPG Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore is set to debut on the Nintendo Switch in just a few weeks.
The worlds of the Fire Emblem™ series and Atlus games have crossed paths again and the result is coming to the Nintendo Switch™ system. An interdimensional evil has invaded modern-day Tokyo, resulting in this fantastical barrage of music, style, and yes, danger. So, fight back! Battle through dungeons to pump up your strategy and creatively decimate your foes…before all hope fades to black.
You and the rising stars you call friends will need to call on your own creative power—manifested as iconic Fire Emblem characters—to wage a secret war on rogue spirits that feed on creativity. Each encounter will immerse you in deep, turn-based battles that blend the combat of the Fire Emblem and Shin Megami Tensei series into one brutal harmony. Fuse items to craft weaponry; then play to your strengths and crush your foes. Around every corner you’ll find fun nods to multiple fandoms, including Fire Emblem references, dungeons themed to the entertainment industry, and stunning musical performances.
Nintendo has released an overview trailer for the game, which looks like a lot of fun. Especially off the heels of the success and acclaim for Fire Emblem: Three Houses, interest in Fire Emblem is at a high so this might interest some fans of the series that may not have given it a look on the Wii U – like myself.
Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore will be released in both physical and in the Nintendo eShop on January 17th, 2020.
