Following the game’s second trailer yesterday, Genei Ibun Roku #FE (previously known as “Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem”) was featured on the Nintendo Treehouse E3 2015 live stream earlier.
The game’s producer Shinjiro Takada (director of the Devil Survivor series) was brought as a guest to answer questions about the game’s story, the characters, the battle system and more.
Siliconera wrote a summary of the information that was revealed through the Nintendo Treehouse:
- Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem takes place in Tokyo, like a lot of other Atlus games. You’ll see districts like Shibuya and Harajuku that have been modelled after their real-life counterparts, albeit with a few changes made in support of gameplay.
- For example; the real Shibuya is a fairly large district but has been made a little more compact in Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem. Meanwhile, Harajuku in real life has narrow streets, but they’ve been widened in the game. Atlus staff had to wake up early in the morning so that they could take reference photos of different areas around Tokyo while people weren’t up and about.
- The way the city looks changes based on events in the game. For example, once Tsubasa has made her debut as a performer, the posters around the city will change to reflect that, and you’ll hear her song playing in convenience stores and the like.
