FWIW: Here are two cult games combined as one that is coming out toward the end of a system's life cycle. As a collector edition. 

 

These are the circumstances you wait for. It's the perfect storm. And here it is, looking you right in the face.

From GS.com:

 

Slay monsters - and slay like a pop star - all at the same time, in this brand-new RPG from acclaimed developer Atlus. A sinister force from another dimension has invaded modern-day Tokyo, resulting in a fantastical barrage of style, fashion, music, and, of course, danger. So fight back - command your creative potential, save the world...and become a star.

 

So the FE part of the game is the slaying of monsters, and the whatever other part is singing or dancing or something?

TBH, and I have been following this game for a while, I am not really sure what it is about. But there is strategy and there is Fire Emblem so I am buying it. Plus, get to play on big screen. 

 

Edit: This is how most Fire Emblem fans think, I would assume =D

Edit #2: At one point I know there were rumors that it was also going to get cancelled, for whatever that is worth.

It's been up for a like a day now... but nobody cares b/c everyone's waiting for Amazon. After tax and shipping, GS is almost $20 more than Amazon for me.

It's true, I am waiting for that sweet sweet GCU discount.

 

 

Uhh, I mean Prime.

It plays like SMT games and your characters' "personas" are FE characters. Those are the only remnants of its origin as SMT X FE.

It's basically what if you took an SMT game and crossed it with FE stuff.  It's got FE characters and Persona styling but it's mainly SMT gameplay with FE's weapon system.

This looks so much like a Persona game that I am hyped up for it. Can't wait to get it on Amazon with a Prime discount, since I can't use Best Buy GCU (thanks Nintendo)

Like pretty much everyone, GS is place holder until (or if) I can snag an Amazon copy with discount.

They definitely made the right choice in styling it like Persona 4 since that seems to be far more popular than any of the main SMT games.  I mean how do you not love this trailer?  I wind up watching it multiple times anytime this game comes up.

You can already tell it's going to be made of the shitty box material used for Xenoblade Chronicles X CE. Order 2 to have a better shot of a non crushed one.

No kidding, but if it was out they would let you get free shipping.  Makes it easier to say no to ordering stuff from them at least.

Yep, looks like the exact same packaging with different printing.

They've started adding handling fees too. It's total bullshit

The handling fee is so they can charge you to crush your CE some more ;)

They don't charge you till it's out and about to ship, so no. Does anyone know why this is a GameStop and Amazon only thing?

Because Nintendo? If I had to guess, there are backroom shenanigans going on. I've see this happen occasionally with other games

Because Nintendo indeed. No one else probably wants a niche big box Wii U game at this point and BBY still has the Xenoblade X ones.

Yeah 20% less, free shipping, no handling fee. Plus I don't like to feed the beast.

I almost pulled the trigger at lamestop but for this I'd rather miss out than order from them. So I'll wait for amazon.

I know I sound foolish, but I thought this was one of those random JRPGs that come out for the vita like once a week, I didnt know this was the Fire Emblem X Shin Megami Tensei that was announced 2 years ago. As a result, its back on my radar, thanks OP.

Yeah, guess the old trusty SAVER code doesn't work for box sets or limited editions?

 

It works for the standard edition of the game. You can get free shipping over $24.99 by using the SAVER code, but for the Special Edtion that code does not seem to work.

I don't think it's foolish at all... I don't get why they would they changed the name. Both Persona and Fire Emblem have very solid followings and brand recognition. Something like Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE just sounds like a mix of random words. 

 

Part of me is certain that some big shot at NoA hates FE and will do anything to sabotage the series potential for success.

I'm likely what most would consider a hardcore fan of Fire Emblem and don't want this since it barely has anything to do with the series. If you're going in expecting a gameplay experience resembling any of those games, you'll be extremely disappointed. Not attempting to dump on those who want it, but instead trying to make it clear for anyone who doesn't know what to expect (though even a quick look at the trailers should make that abundantly clear, regardless).

 

This is basically an Atlus game with some Fire Emblem window dressing.

The Japanese version could be translated as Illusory Revelation Sharp FE, so it's not just the American side of things this time around.

TMS is SMT backwards. When I type it out, it sounds like a dumb conspiracy thing to point out, but everyone seems convinced it was intentional.
