From bathing suit to Punky Brewster cosplay in one cross-Atlantic trip. Some of the changes made to Japan’s Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem to make it North America’s Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE are quite odd.
Another giant JRPG is out for the Wii U today. Is Atlus and Nintendo’s mash-up of Shin Megami Tensei and Fire Emblem any good? We’ve got positive impressions of the Japanese version of the game and video of the first hour of the Western version to help you decide.
True to its title Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem is a mix of the two games, but if you expected a dark and depressing tactics title, you’re more than a bit off the mark.
What happens when you cross Shin Megami Tensei with Fire Emblem? Come join me and find out!
As Kotaku previously reported, Shin Megami Tensei IV Final is a totally new game. We get a very (I mean very) brief look at game play in this debut trailer.
Slated for release in Japan next year, Shin Megami Tensei IV Final isn’t a “definitive edition” of the previously released Shin Megami Tensei IV.

Every time I post a GIF from Persona 4: Dancing All Night, the comments are always the same: where’s Naoto Shirogane? Here’s Naoto Shirogane.
The game, for the Wii U, is called Illusory Revelations #FE. It’s set in modern-day Tokyo. Holy shit.
64 hours. 23 hours. 42 hours. 28 hours. Somewhere on a grassy plain trying to figure out if I should spend my days hunting down one of many pending side quests. Somewhere deep in the ocean chasing mermaids. Somewhere making preparations for my next strategic battle. These are all the places I’m willing to leave…
Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne, one of the most visually unique RPGs for the PS2, is out today on the Playstation 3. You can pick it up here on the Playstation Network Store.
The first Shin Megami Tensei comes to iOS next month. It'll be out on March 18 for $8, Atlus says. Here's hoping you don't have to pay real money to negotiate with demons. That'd be kind of evil.
