OH MY GOD
Must. get. Wii U.
... I don't get it.
I mean, don't get me wrong, both series get all of my yes when taken individually. It's just that I'm not really sure how they intend to harmonize in a way that wouldn't cheapen both sides.
To put it in the words of Lewis: "You got sci-fi all over my heroic fantasy!"
That said, there's some real talented developers behind this (I love me some Atlus), and Nintendo usually has a very tight grip on what third parties can and can't get away with, so I think some cautious optimism might be fine. They got my curiosity, now let's see how they'll grab my attention.
Agggggggggh! WHY MUST I LIMIT MYSELF TO HANDHELD GAMES! Ah well, I'll get Shin Megami Tensei IV and Fire Emblem Awakening and make myself happy.

Holy shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii- -dies-
Oh god a crossover game. I cannot see this going well at all.
Pokemon Conquest turned out well and that was even more random. The nature of the Amala Network means that the Fire Emblem worlds could be slotted in there somewhere. It's also being made by two companies that stick to a certain level of quality in their hardcore games.

So I guess that confirms that Shin Megami Tensei IV is going to be brought over, not that there was really much doubt given Atlus's track record.
Also, what the fuck? This feels more off the wall than Pokemon Conquest.
I've sat out the current console generation in its entirety. I don't think this will make me join the Wii U's, but this is certainly the way to get me interested.
Persona 5 U would be the kicker of course.
So what crazy Nintendo crossover do you think will be next? Kirby x Final Fantasy? Zelda x Devil May Cry?
StarFox X Metroid? :P
Looking forward to this but am wondering how they will consolidate the power levels. I mean, from what I hear anything plot relevant in SMT games can basically nuke universes. Fire Emblem people can... uh... kill dragons?
Well, the goddess in Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn can apparently wipe the continent clean of life.
The thing is that in a lot of Shin Megami Tensei games, they don't reach that stage until the very end of the game.
Ambassador Thorman sends you his greetings. His words are backed by NUCLEAR MISSILES.
Why even go that far? Humans were fighting demons in hand to hand combat just fine in SMT I&II. It was talking to the demons that was problematic.

It's maybe gonna be the same justification as in the first Devil Survivor-game: they're gonna get "harmonized" with the demons, so that the humans can fight pretty much on "even" terms with the demons.
...Why do we have a thread for this? We have threads for both topics individually, and chances are, discussion is going to be there.
Then again, the two threads have little crossover, so...I dunno.
I don't get the trend of making a new thread for every little thing. OK, OK, crossover, but still.
Anyway, yeah, this rocks my socks.

Really, this make sense more than Pokemon Conquest :P Pokemon Conquest was a Nobunaga's ambition with pokemon which is pretty darn weird. Both series in this case at least DO have magic and demons and swords and whatever crap even if other is apocalyptic and other is medieval.
Also, Fire Emblem's final bosses ARE rather epic nature even if they are easy sometimes. Doma, Fomortiis, Grima, heck even other dark dragons like Medeus, Idounn and Julius possessed by Loptowhatever. Fire dragon from seventh game is just a generic dragon, but its pretty darn huge ass one so its still rather epic.

Loptous. It's not hard.
...How did you remember Fomortiis and not Loptous? I can never remember the Demon King's name.
I've seen so many spelling of Loptous that I remember mainly the romanized ones from bad fan translations like Loputousu which are hard to remember
Fomortiis/Formortis is on other hand easy and cool name even if its never said in game except on stat page of final boss.
I mean... how? Why?! I mean... I'm a big fan of SMT, and I'm at least familiar with FE, but... what the hell?
—Takes a moment to recollect himself.—
...Sorry about that... But seriously; what I want to know is how this came about, and why this came about, because this is a crossover that makes no bloody sense. Super Robot Wars: A bunch of Giant Robot series coming together. Makes sense. Marvel Vs Capcom: Capcom made Marvel fighting games alongside their original projects. Makes sense. This... makes no bloody sense. 0_0
...All that said, if I ever have a Wii U by the time this game rolls out, I'll likely pick it up anyway.

Pokemon and Nobunaga's Ambition was arguably a even more unfitting crossover, but according to what I've heard, not only do they make that work, it's a good game on top of it.
I have high hopes for this. Fire Emblem is awesome, SMT is awesome.
..as a HUGE fan of both series..I am utterly confused, shocked, and aroused o.o.
Well, crap; can't say I was expecting that! Nintendo arrived early for E3 this year it seems.
Tell me about it.
Everyone else is like:
What the hell dudes?!! We ain't even ready yet!! Why are you jumping the gun?!!!
And Nintendo's all like:
Cause we're awesome. You're bodies weren't ready. That's your fault.
lol Nintendo the Bodice Ripper XD
