SMTxFE seems more Persona than mainline SMT so yeah /smtg/ is dead
HOLY SHIT I'M SO FUCKING MAD
I HATE EVERYTHING, FUCK ATLUS, FUCK NINTENDO, FUCK I.S., FUCK EVERYTHING SMT IS FUCKING DEAD!
KILL THIS GENERAL, IT'S OVER I'M FUCKING DONE.
Not even Persona is that weeb, this is like Senran Kagura tier weebshit. Also,
You fuck off too.
I'd like to take a second to remind you that THIS is the latest Persona game
and THIS is the latest SMT game.
I just woke up and saw the trailer.
What the fuck?
That looks disgusting the character designs are awful and the girls look like they belong in Love Live
It's like when a movie is so bad it goes straight to video, but this as a game
Eh, Ilusory/FE or whatever has Ibunroku in the title, not "Megami Tensei". It's as much SMT as Persona and Devil Survivor, only with a misleading prototype name.
The website mentions that we'll see FE characters in the game, and the trailer shows Tiki. But it looks like there won't even be any existing SMT characters...
I'm mad right now guys, like, really mad
I'm so fucking mad, I killed my family, that's just how fucking mad I am
I'm so mad, my fury is on par with 10 hydrogen bombs
I'm so mad, our alien overlords and mad me the god of anger and suffering, that's just how fucking mad about this
You could've stopped this Atlus
Just because they knew it was gonna happen didn't stop them from being angry. I'm angry as fuck right now. I wanted a crossover type game with all my favorite characters from both series' in one place, but it's just LoveLive-esque kawaii uguu shit with an SMT setting and Persona characters.
I really hope that SMTxFE trailer was a bait and switch. Only 1 shot got me a bit excited.
How did this:
Became that atrocity, for Christ's sake, the trailer shows the protagonists and their heroines and a destroyed city, how did that became a highschool themed waifufest?
> The SMTxFE trailer is a trailer for another project
> No indication of SMT
> No indication of FE
> The trailer doesn't even have a logo
> Look what day it is
I knew SMT x FE would be disappointing but... but please, not like this
Don't let us die like this Atlus... give us a more honorable death
I'm so happy we all have another console MegaTen to look forward to.
They're apparently original characters, since only one FE character showed up in the trailer as a cameo.
So to answer your question, they're moeshit personashit shit-tier useless characters.
This is the worst April Fool's joke ever.
>P-Persona is an SMT g-game!
>We n-n-never said it was mainline! Nobody still plays those OLD games.
This is not Kingdom Hearts you faggotron. Kingdom Hearts was unexpected; no one ever thought an original character could bring two titans of entertainment together out of the blue like Sora did.
This has been hanging over everyone's heads for two years, with the successes of both series' characters and plots attached to it. What they've given us so far feels almost like another Persona 4 spinoff. There are no easily identifiable characters, no familiar locations or music, just the four shitstains and one minor cameo from Fire Emblem. It's disappointing as all hell.
Guys guys, what if, these are just the OC characters your forced to play as and in the fantasy world or whatever is where you meet FE (and hopefully) SMT characters and demons? And the trailer was just to attratice the weeb crowed and its actually all fucked up? Like how Bloodbourne made you think its all about werewolfs and shit then did a bait and switch and become about
What was up with the combat though?
>Let's have both original characters not from SMT or FE
That's what I wanted. I didn't want >>99055794
that but I didn't want a literal crossover either.
I wanted a new MegaTen franchise that was a blend of both SMT and FE, something like
>bleak post-apocalyptic setting
>Kozaki as a the character designer
>SMT demon designs
>FE-styled strategy presentation, classes, skill system, perma-death
>SMT skills and press turn for the actual confrontations
>RNG bullshit dialed up to the max
Holy shit both of you fuck off.
Was it common knowledge that the DeSu team was on this? Why is the style so jarring for people?
If Sharp FE has the following, I will still buy it:
Dungeons that are well designed, and not randomly generated/boring hallways
Actually being able to customize the party beyond the player character
No social links or anything like them
Interesting battle mechanics
Actually unique characters that aren't entirely defined by their boring, generic personal problems.
Please put MegaTen characters in. If there are FE characters why can't there be MegaTen characters.
It looks like it could still be good, even if it means that Shin Megami Tensei is dead forever. As long as it's not just Not-Persona and is actually good.
Well the fucking first trailer gave an impression that was completely different that was was given. At least with Hinata, it was fucking clear she would win...and that she was best girl.
Looks like generic weeb shit. Like neptuina or conception, doest look like fe or smt. And the teaser and a certain dark tone in the end with the city, this trailer had jpop (which neither series has, in its games) no demons etc etc.
Now it's quite clear who the intended audience for #FE is.
it's certainly better than DeSu or Persona
i don't know what you can do about characters looking generic when they're generic highschoolers. the art style is nice. The fantasy designs range from alright to weird. The monsters look about as boring as the Shadows did, which is to say very boring.
anyways, look at this generic fucker
Are you talking shit about my waifu?
Guys, it just dawned to me, it was never ever meant to be SMTxFE, IS just wanted a FE game in the modern world, atlus took it up, and like with persona, DDS, DeSU and devil summener, THEY SLAPPED the SMT logo for name recognition, those mother fuckers.
i want the game to be good somehow. please let it be good somehow.
it's slightly different
SMTxFE was still SMTxFE in Japan. Devil Summoner and Persona and such aren't. I think it really was supposed to be more of a cross-over, but then they overhauled it into this for whatever reason.
>being in this much of a state of denial
Stop it anon. Embrace the suffering.
This trailer is the game OC protagonists with some FE, what if the next trailer is OC protags with SMT things? Or what if I am just in the bargaining stage of grief? I need more info now holy shit.
anyways, I think the game still has a chance of being good, even if it's not what I was expecting. on the other hand, it also has the chance of being completely garbage.
Catherine doesn't look like that, Etrian Odyssey doesn't look like that, Tactics Ogre doesn't look like that, previous Fire Emblems don't look like that, a lot of fucking games with "Anime" style where artists have a semblance of taste don't look like that and actually have a distinct style.
The guy that compared it to LN art gave it too much credit, a lot of LN character designs, even if stupid, at least are distinct and memorable enough, characters from this shit escape from my memory the second the trailer ends.
Nintendo updated their page on April 2nd for SMT x FE. And also uploaded the SMT x FE video on their blog on April 2nd.
It's over anon, I know I want to believe as much as you do, but, it's over.
You know how I felt when I watched the trailer just now? I got the same sinking feeling as when I played Sonic 06 and FF13. It's just that terrible feeling that what I love is dying and there's no way to save it.
I'm not saying they're good, but they're at least leave an impression.
#FE caracters are somewhere on the level of Toki to Towa, Valhalla Knights or Natural Doctrine, where you beat the game and don't remember any of the characters the day later.
Sameface and toilet armor. Otherwise I actually do like the artist for FE13 and 14. But that's not what's got our panties twisted. Think for a moment anon, you're in /smtg/ why would we be talking about FE?
No way, dude. I was shitting on Persona 5 for months and then that trailer was impressive as hell. This... this one fucking scarred me. Fuck Atlus and Nintendo for keeping the SMT name in it, even the Japs aren't trying to lie to their fans like that
>The full game title was revealed 1 April, 2015 during a Nintendo Direct presentation.
>Nintendo released a gameplay trailer of the game during a Nintendo Direct in April 1, 2015.
>Justin Haywald (April 1, 2015). "New Trailer for Shin Megami Tensei x Fire Emblem"
Cool story bro.
I know, but that Bill faggot called it that and by extension Nintendo and Atlus here in America will probably continue calling it SMT x FE, along with video game journalists.
I wish they never said that's what the crossover ended up as.
Just because the US port of P1 replaced "Megami Ibunroku" with "Revelations" doesn't mean you have to translate "Ibunroku" as "Revelations" from now on. Ibunroku is basically a fancy way of saying Gaiden or something.
Well gaiden would still be in the same setting as the main work, while ibunroku is meant to be an AU variant of the franchise, but you get the point. It has nothing to do with "revelations", either literally or biblically.
Either way my point is that the game doesn't mention SMT and the only real inspiration seems to be the setting. I can't make out the battle stuff yet.
It's still pretty fucking stupid telling Atlus what to consider SMT and what not to consider SMT.
Other nonsensical combos:
SMT x Final Fantasy: A detective story about ghosts.
SMT x Phoneix Wright: Side-scrolling beat 'em up about a magic dog and his foxy grandma owner.
SMT x SRW: Dating sim that features real-time facial hair growth.
SMT x Metal Gear: An interesting dadaist deconstruction of the concept of Luddites performed by the cast of Stomp.
Well, the Japanese trailer from January 2013 said "真・女神転生 meets ファイアーエムブレム" (Shin Megami Tensei meets Fire Emblem) and showed a bunch of SMT characters.
The title on the Japanese fiscal reports was always
「真・女神転生」✕「ファイアーエムブレム」 ("Shin Megami Tensei" x "Fire Emblem")
Now Japan has renamed it to 幻影異聞録FE (Gen'ei Ibunroku FE (Sharp Eff Eee))
This is the trailer Nintendo of America uploaded in January 2013.
Wii U - Shin-Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem Trailer
This is what they tweeted today.
Tune in now for a look at the upcoming Shin Megami Tensei x Fire Emblem game!
This is the video Nintendo of America uploaded after.
Wii U - Shin Megami Tensei & Fire Emblem Crossover Project Gameplay Trailer
It's possible that they'll rename it and drop the SMT from the title in North America, but I think Atlus would prefer to keep it. Or do you forget
>Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers
>Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner: Raidou Kuzunoha vs. The Soulless Army

>Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor
>Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor: Overclocked
>Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2
>Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2: Record Breaker
Of course, none of these games are SMT.
Only the original Devil Summoner has SMT as a prefix.
Digital Devil Saga is its own series title.
The first Persona/Devil Survivor is Megami Ibunroku, and every game after drops it.
I don't think it looks bad, just kinda generic. We have
>Idolm@ster high school girl
>Fire Emblem MC lord (probably the best design)
>Girl with g-string
Though it looks like they all have different outfits. The Fire Emblem lord looks like the guy you play as, and he wears a hoodie and looks more generic outside of battle.
I couldn't even remember watching the original trailers, but now that you've shown me the first one they ever posted, I understand why I felt so let down by the trailer released recently. It has none of those characters in it at all. It's hollow.
This is an actual quote from someone on
"No, in fact that's when you're supposed to expect the complete opposite. A game being in development for years with 0 information out there means there were problems during development, which means anything could have happened, and in almost every case the game has a complete makeover. People are just idiots."
That has some truth to it, but when you take Break Record into account which also dropped off the map probably due to Index issues then showed up again, people assumed the same thing happened to this game, and I doubt Break Record had a complete overhaul.
