Default Flintstones Meet the Jetsons - Speculating about SMTXFE

So Nintendo Direct dropped a bomb this morning that broke the brain of everyone who saw it, thus ushering in the Fifth Age.

Trailer Here

How's it going to work? Dungeon Dive? Turn-based strategy? Will FE heroes summon dudes from the Demonic Compendium or will that dopey guy from SMT1 all be like get over here Jagen and then you put a gun to your head and POW it's Marth?

I have a nasty feeling that it'll be a fighting game.

...I'm hoping to be very wrong considering the pedigree we're dealing with!

Devil Survivor + Fire Emblem characters is the easy one.

It'd be weird to have Devil Survivor's battle mechanics in FE, though, what with the Dragon Quest style battles when you attack someone.

My guess is it'll be Fire Emblem gameplay with demons. Although it'd be weird to have just swords/spears/axes as attacks for demons...

Well, who the eff knows. Can't wait to find out more though.

So does Atlus considers SMT if... mainline? Or is it because they can't really use Persona since they/Sony consider it a PS title (like Konami and Ape Escape?)

So with four threads talking about this, which one should we post in?

What the fuck is this.

Well, as a big fan of both series, I can't say I'm not really interested.

Taking SMT rules, we will fuse all four of them for the ultimate SMTxFE thread!: Metatron.

Taking FE rules, we'll keep playing and redoing the scenerio from the beginning until the one we want survives in the end!


I hope this doesn't turn out to be an SRPG. We already have Awakening out and will have another Devil Survivor eventually, I don't think we need SRPG overdose.

Asking as someone who has no knowledge of the Fire Emblem series, does this pairing make any sense?

I'd just like to say that Rey's thread was way better because I actually knew what the fuck the title meant.

Normally I'd say it makes about as much sense as Pokémon x Nobunaga, buuuuut.

Spoilers for Awakening:

Awakening deals with "Demon's Gates" which seems to link up different universes and worlds together, so I'm going to guess that's their excuse.

So basically they'll use the same conceit that "unified Megaten timeline" fanboys have been using for years:

It's all because of AMALA NETWORK.

I'm starting to think Atlus and Nintendo felt left out of the Capcom x Namco x Sega RPG, and just decided make their own.

Also, really, I'd pay good money to see concept art of Ike getting ready to use an evoker. Not because this crossover makes any sense (do they ever?), but because the mental image is hilarious.

I am not familiar with the type of thing I am seeing. However, I am strangely excited for it.

What the 100% genuine fuck.

I mean, we have every reason to believe it'll be good, considering its pedigree. But it's too soon for anything but bewilderment.

What, who cares? Didn't you guys see the rest of it? Yoshi's Epic Yarn! New Xeno game! Wind Waker HD! Games like this are never ever good (okay, at best). Priorities guys. Priorities.

this was probably the most shocking and interesting thing in the whole Nintendo Direct and that's saying a lot because the rest of it was absolutely nuts

Ever have one of those moments where you find out something insane and you're like "okay" and a few hours later the shear WTFness of it all hits you like a bullet train?

Nintendo fired on all cylinders, then created a new cylinder and fired that one.

They got, like, cylinder cinders.

Maybe this'll finally be the game that gets me to play Shin Megami Tensei in some capacity.

Hugely disappointed that this isn't an actual Flintstones Meet the Jetsons game and instead some animu bullshit*.

what the fuck

So this is why I preordered Awakening yesterday.

Actually, this is probably going to give "canon" names to the unnamed MCs, isn't it? It'd be cooler if you could just name everyone yourself.

I'm having trouble thinking of two franchises whose collective fanbase would be less interested in a fighting game. This isn't Capcom Vs. SNK, here.

I can't even decide how this would even work. Atlus was the first image in the trailer so I assume they're developing and thus the game hews closer to the SMT side of the ledger, but every idea I thought of was constrained by the fact that the FE dudes don't really have individual abilities. They're differentiated by their stat growths and by the weapons they can use, not by any kind of unique powers.

I'll say this, though: I hope Serra's in it. I would pay all the moneys to see her Social Link. It's a good opportunity to see some of the niche-ier FE characters again who don't have a chance of showing up in, say, Smash Bros.

I still can't get over how weird this is. I'm happy for Atlus, though - this seems like a good opportunity for some more SMT exposure.

It's Shin Megami Tensei Cross Fire Emblem, not Persona Cross Fire Emblem
