A whole lot went down during today's Nintendo Direct. The next iterations of popular games such as Mario Kart and Zelda were announced, but that wasn't all. Other interesting announcements peppered the show such as a Wind Waker HD version and, out of nowhere, a game called Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem for Wii U.
Unfortunately, the name is nearly all we know about it so far. It is part of Nintendo's new strategy of working with other developers to help produce more game projects at once. What is shown in the teaser trailer is art for various characters of both respective series. Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem definitely is a mashup of some sort which is relying on fans to be excited by seeing characters they know.
Will it be a strategy RPG? Will it be a turn-based JRPG? What about a fighting game? All actual details about this game, aside from its existence, will be shared at a later date.
