We do love our Fire Emblem games at Digitally Downloaded, and one of the genuine bright sparks among the relatively quiet show from Nintendo was the new trailers for the Fire Emblem titles on both Wii U and Nintendo 3DS.
The other trailer was for Shin Megami Tensei x Fire Emblem. This is one of the Wii U games we are looking forward to the most, and though the trailer didn’t show off much more than what we’d seen in the previous Nintendo Direct, we did get some more names and characters to whet the appetite.
This game doesn’t look much like a Fire Emblem game, and it more resembles Persona than the “main” Shin Megami Tensei series thanks to its bright colour aesthetic and JPop-like soundtrack, but it really does look very good. It’s a game being developed by Atlus, and Atlus is very careful with its marquee series, So I’m expecting nothing short of brilliance from this one.
So, which of the two games has your attention?
