Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE, the Shin Megami Tensei/Fire Emblem crossover that’s finally making its way West this June, has finally had its localization plans laid out for fans.
According to Game Informer, who reached out to Nintendo in regards to the game’s localization, Nintendo has stated that the Shin Megami Tensei’s developers Atlus are in charge of the process. This is a strange change of pace from Nintendo’s usual localization patterns, but Nintendo assures us that this is done with the best intent.
“Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE was localized by Atlus in a way that is consistent with the localization work they do on games they publish. It was a priority to ensure the game feels familiar and appeals to longtime Atlus fans. Any changes made to the in-game content were due to varying requirements and regulations in the many different territories Nintendo distributes its products.”
Nintendo has gotten some pretty severe backlash over the localization of their last two major JRPGs – Xenoblade Chronicles X and Fire Emblem Fates – so it’s very possible (and more than likely) that this decision was made in an attempt to keep fans happy after these past two incidents.
Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE will be released on June 24th for the Wii U.
