How do we go from this
>There have been opinions such as “Where is Megaten? This is not like Fire Emblem,” though the initial concept of the game reflected these thoughts.
>The concept of the game changed course with the desires of the development staff.
In short: Idolfags in Atlus fucked up what would have been a great matchup.
that's MP3, niggers
>"This is why the characters are all entertainers: in Japan, similar to Greek mythology, there's the idea of the gods being connected to the arts," Takada said. "It's a shamanistic element that's been interpreted by Atlus. The idea is, Japanese priestesses would dance and the dancing would bring them closer to the gods. We wanted to spin this in an Atlus way, so all the characters in the game have some connection to the arts, and that connection and their ability to express themselves attracts the Mirages to them. People who are good at singing or dancing or acting have really strong bonds with Mirages."
>"One of the reasons [we made Fire Emblem characters Mirages] is because since it's an RPG in modern times, we can't have a Pegasus Knight suddenly show up and have the player think that it all makes sense," Yamagami explained. "Because Fire Emblem has its own world, we had to have these characters enter the modern world as visitors from a mirror dimension, called the Idolosphere. And as there are ally units like Chrom and Shiida who come from this world, there are also antagonists that come from that world as well and want to destroy our world."
>That being said, despite the modern setting and prominent pop-idol elements, it sounds like the game will feel at home in the hands of longtime Fire Emblem fans. Yamagami suggested that players who have been with the series for a while will have a different, deeper understanding of the game than series newcomers.
no surprise demo troopers looks extremely halo than 85% the shit you see in Prime 3
>tfw people cried "that looks like Metroid Prime!" on Halo 4's trailer
Because the initial teaser was literally office pitch level of conceptualization.
The video was basically them going like, "Wouldn't a game that combined various game mechanics and characters and themes from both Fire Emblem and the Shin Megami Tensei series be interesting? We have no idea what the game would be, but it could be cool. Also both franchises are fairly popular right now, so it could be an easy sell. How about it?"
FExSMT was never a dark gritty strategy RPG with killable party members
I know this is weeb shit, but man, hearing the fire emblem theme always gives me chills
IS IT EVEN ANYWHERE IN FUCKING FATES? I swear I have yet to hear it... The opening cinematic is just the first trailer shown..
whoa, did they update FF's looks?
pretty sick bruh
Its in the credits, the Records more specifically actually
its a really good song, the opening fanfare is perfect for something you hear after clearing a gameand in the ending cinematic from IK
I agree, shit's stupid how underused it is while Aqua's song is every other minute.
>FExSMT was never a dark gritty strategy RPG with killable party members
It could've been great, it could've been so great...
>posting Rachet and Clank in a Nintendo thread
get outta my thread sonygger
Grimdark compared to Nintendo's other franchises.
The way characters do a follow-up attack if you exploit a weakness is straight out of Strange Journey, and the spells/elements are all SMT.
It doesn't play like SMT exactly, it's more like a poor otaku's Digital Devil Saga, but there's definitely megaten in the gameplay.
So if this game turns out to be fun would everything be fine?
I would like to see a recording of that meeting where they figured out the best course of action for a FExSMT crossover was otaku pandering idol shit.
The problem isn't really if it's fun or not. People just hated the idea of a random spin off when it's been years since the last actual Metroid game even even longer since the actual good Metroid game. If they announced an actual Metroid game along side FF people would have shrugged like they did with Triforce Heroes.
after watching all this I'm just surprised at how people aren't just dissapointed, but massively butthurt over how things turned out. smt x fe never even actually existed, so how can people be so mad that it's not what we got? I don't even see how people could think the crossover was a good idea to begin with.
yet according to complainers the game would have been great if it was smt characters with fe gameplay. it seems like 90% of the backlash is coming from asshurt smt fans who only care about the series because of the edgy aesthetic.
Why are FE and SMT fans so entitled?
Two well beloved and respected devs decided to come together and do something fun.
And how do you react? With vitriol.
>"smt isn't an anime series it's a dark and mature story about fighting against god who is a jerk"
>*tips fedora while sheathing katana under black trenchcoat*
>t. typical smt fan
>anything that's dark is bad
fuck off already
grandpa FE fans are bitter because they feel alienated from what the series has become, and the existence of #FE furthers this alienation.
most Awakeningfags don't care either way about #FE
Why all the male characters look like fags?
Some of Fire Emblem stands look pretty cool, but this fucking audience, songs and gay clothes destroy the gameplay.
nah awakening was my first fire emblem game and even I think that this game is shit
They showed a city burning in the background
The final version is cute girls doing cute things
