Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem is a fascinating upcoming release that aims to cross over both of the popular franchises, though it does appear to be more Shin Megami Tensei than it does Fire Emblem. The game has been confirmed to be coming west, though there's still barely any information surrounding the international version.

Hitoshi Yamagami – the Producer for the game – recently shared some information regarding the planning and development. The concept of it has been in production for five years and the original idea was to make a fantasy strategy RPG. The direction that they ultimately decided on was an unconventional one to say the least, opting to make a JRPG set in the modern music industry. Mitsuru Hirata – the chief Director – wanted it to contain modern drama elements and to be reflective of the real entertainment industry.
