Genei Ibun Roku #FE - what was formally loosely called Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem - is getting increasingly close to its release in Japan. The Wii U title has had a long and rather peculiar development cycle, and though Nintendo is still promoting the game its title and prominence of Atlus as the named developer points to a drift away from the original crossover that fans may have had in mind.

Its bright and peculiar aesthetic is also quite far from the moody teaser logo of 2013, but nevertheless it is at least coming to the market. Ahead of that Japanese release there'll be marketing to promote it, which gives us more opportunities to see what its all about.

The latest videos, with that in mind, show off some cast members. First off we have Mamori Minamoto.

Next up is the bizarre Barry Goodman.

We're still not sure what to make of this, but it'll be intriguing to see how it performs in Japan.
