Following the recent “Hyped for Combat” trailer for Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE, Nintendo has released an English story trailer for the upcoming Wii U RPG.
The official Nintendo UK website has the following story overview for the game:
In Tokyo, ordinary student Itsuki Aoi runs into his childhood friend Tsubasa Oribe. Ambitious Tsubasa is preparing to participate in a competition to become an idol singer, but as the competition begins, the stage is stormed by a swarm of sinister figures, who drag Tsubasa through an eerie portal.
Itsuki immediately jumps into action and, with the aid of some mysterious beings, he and Tsubasa are able to fight off the invaders. It’s revealed that their saviours, Chrom and Caeda, are heroes from another world and that the place they’re in is the Idolasphere – a dimension that bridges the gap between the two worlds.
Within the Idolasphere, the heroes take on spectral forms known as Mirages. While many Mirages are intent on waging war against our world, some prefer to team up with certain talented humans, becoming weapons for them to wield in battle. Mirages respond to Performa – the power of creativity and self-expression in the human heart – and the humans who can form bonds with Mirages to make use of their awesome powers are known as Mirage Masters. With the help of Mirages, they can take on foes that threaten the world.
Tipped for the top
Secretly, the talent agency Fortuna Entertainment has been trying to prevent Mirages from invading our world. After learning of their experience in the Idolasphere, the agency enrols the talents of the young heroes, whilst giving them a golden opportunity to achieve their dreams of stardom.
As they face Mirages, our young heroes will also follow their dreams as they try to become stars. They’re determined to sing, dance and act their way to the top, but the road to showbiz success is never a smooth one…
The power of Performa
Both Mirages and Mirage Masters can use Performa as a source of power. The more creative someone is, the more Performa they have, and the young hopefuls trying to break into the world of show business burn particularly brightly. Evil Mirages are attacking humans, hoping to drain them of their Performa and take this precious energy back to their world. Just what are they planning to do with the stolen energy?
Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE (previously known as Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem) was released on December 26, 2015 in Japan for the Wii U. It will release in North America and Europe on June 24, 2016.
