Was anyone not surprised by the announcement of Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem when Nintendo announced it a few months ago? The game itself came as a surprise; here it is, a crossover between a modernized, demon-hunting game and an archaic warfare game filled with legends and dragons coming together. There haven’t been that many details revealed on the game, though we do know where the setting will be focused on now!
Intelligent Systems director Hitoshi Yamagami has recently (accidentally) revealed that Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem will be set in the modern world, which in this case most likely means modern Japan. You can read his statement below:
For a long time, I wanted to create a FE on ours times, on the real world. Imagine a Pegasus that comes from the sky and lands on the Building 109 of Shibuya, Tokyo. I always though that would be incredible. At the same time, I know it’s hard because of how FE 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. Oops! I shouldn’t say that the game takes place in the real world. We haven’t announced it, right?
Of course, this isn’t the first time that the Fire Emblem series would’ve deviated from its mythical roots; Fire Emblem: Awakening was originally going to be set in the future… on Mars!
