Crossover RPG Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE is receiving an enhanced port on the Nintendo Switch, titled Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore, revealed during today’s Nintendo Direct.

Apart from a new song, “new story elements,” and additional characters, like Tiki, available in battle, not much else is known about the changes coming to the game.

 

 

Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE, which combines the universe of Fire Emblem with gameplay from the Shin Megami Tensei series, was originally released in 2016 for the Wii U.

It sees main character Itsuki Aoi in a version of modern-day Tokyo who, along with his friends, works at a talent agency alongside friendly “Mirages” based off popular Fire Emblem characters, like Chrom, Tharja, Caeda, and more.

Together, they work to solve the mystery behind a round of attacks against Tokyo civilians carried out by malevolent Mirages.

“Slay monsters—and slay like a pop star—in this brand-new RPG from acclaimed developer Atlus. 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 new 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 music performances.”

Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore releases worldwide for Nintendo Switch on January 17th, 2020 and can be pre-ordered now on the Nintendo eShop.
