    A tl;dw of the presentation

    • New Fire Emblem, advertising Choices and Consequences.
    • Puzzle and Dragons localized, with a free mario spinoff included
    • Candy Crush: Pokemon Edition (Pokemon: SHuffle)
    • Infrastructure improvemetns to the Wii U, also several Wii games are now being put on the Wii U eshop, including Super Mario Galaxy 2, and the Metroid Prime Trilogy.
    • Some Amiibo and Mario Party shit
    • Some 4 player co-op treasure hunting game made my Namco for the Wii U
    • Dress up your Squid Loli with various pieces of clothing
    • Xenoblade X footage

    • Monster Hunter, along with a monster hunter themed 3DS
    • Xenoblade Chronicles 3D still looks underwhelming
    • Majora's Mask 3D footage, and a MM themed 3DS
    • Ironfall, a :popamole: headed towards the 3DS
    • A few indie games and a Kirby game were shown off too in the US version from what I hear.

    Yes, I am. This and Story of Seasons are pretty much the only 3DS releases I'm looking forward to.

    He's bringing the news | DIRECTRY | to you.

    Lots of great stuff in this one.

    New Fire Emblem was a surprise, and is a must-buy for me (loved FE: Awakening).

    Wii games arriving on the Wii U eShop is also pretty great. They're priced at $19.99, but for each title's first week of release, they are selling for $9.99. I don't have any of the three announced titles, so I'll grab SMG2 this week. Metroid Prime Trilogy for $10 is a steal, especially considering how much it costs on the secondary market. I have the original MP on Gamecube, and MP3 on Wii, but it will be nice to get the whole package. Also cool that these can be launched directly from the Wii U home screen, without having to boot into Wii Mode. Would be nice if they could make the games run in a higher resolution, but I'm not expecting that they will.

    Splatoon still looks like a lot of fun. My daughter keeps asking me if I've bought it yet.

    Xenoblade Chronicles X looks pretty great -- I missed out on the original game and I'm not willing to pay eBay prices for it. Nor am I willing to pay $200 for a New 3DS just to play it. Still not happy with Xenoblade Chronicles 3D being exclusive to the New 3DS. I'd accept a lower framerate and having to use the touch screen to move the camera.

    Cross-buy on Mario vs. Donkey Kong is hopefully a sign of things to come.

    Project S.T.E.A.M. looks like it might be good.

    Kirby and the Rainbow Curse has a pretty cool art style. Looks like a weird fit for the console, as it seems like you're mostly using the stylus and looking at the gamepad to play it, rather than the TV. Still, my kids might like it.

    And, of course, Majora's Mask 3D. Really looking forward to this one, as I missed out on the first time around. I have the emulated version for the GameCube that came on that Nintendo Power collector's disc, but never got that far into it.

    Definitely a heavier focus on 3DS than Wii U, but that's not surprising given the February launch of the New 3DS.

    Too lazy to watch. New FE is for 3DS I assume?

    If so: :bounce:

    Indeed, and after seeing that N3DS XL, I was almost tempted into buying one. Then I realized I have better things to spend my money on than an upgraded 3DS. Like fulfilling the patriotic duty of funding Shadowrun: Hong Kong. :salute:

    Its for the 3DS.

    From what I have seen, it seems to look like an improved awakening (already saw some minor improvements in the video). The tone is more serious this time around and there seems to be a heavier dose of politics compared to Awakening. Presentation too has seen some improvements with the battle animations taking place in the actual map rather than characters being teleported to an alternate dimension. Still no charm of the 2D fire emblems, but that alone should make it so that I don't disable combat animations after the prologue like I did in Awakening.

    Yes, it's for 3DS.

    The elusive Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem is the Wii U title, if it is still in the works.

    EDIT: Ninja'd.

    I will end up buying both Intelligent Systems games. Once S.T.E.A.M. is released, I thing they will be focusing on FE x SMT.

    Pretty sure FE X SMT is dead.

    I will probably buy S.T.E.A.M. But I will wait and see with the new Fire Emblem. It all depends on mission design and balance. I can tolerate waifus, if the gameplay is enjoyable.

    The setup for FE14 looks interesting at least, and the art is WAY better now that the artist knows he is drawing for Fire Emblem. Legionnaires vs. Ashigaru/Samurai is interesting both thematically and visually too.

    But as said, stuff the trailer gives no indication of (level design, balance) is what really makes or breaks it.

    It's alive!!!

    Today's Nintendo Direct featured the first trailer for the game. It's not an April Fools joke, either.

    No, it's dead. Very dead. Deader than even when it was just a vague announcement / concept.

    I can't understand what this even is. Where are the SMT or the Fire Emblem characters? Who the fuck are these people?

    You'd miss 'em if you blinked.

    I definitely saw Tiki, at least. Can any local SMT-fags confirm for the monsters/demons? I'd only recognize the low level guys.

    Looks like a game inspired by both universes instead of a crossover.

    They made a game that combine both games, but have nothing of both games. It should have another name, but this way they get more sales.

    Damn. So it really is just a regular JRPG with only nods to both franchises. What a load of shit. It's too bright to be a SMT game and I don't see any SRPG shit from Fire Emblem. The dungeons look pretty linear too, as far as I can tell. Man, who the hell is this for?

    It does look like it takes a lot of inspiration from Persona.

    I will buy it like the sucker I am because I own a Wii U and the software library is... yeah, well you know.

    This will be one of the few JRPGs on the console, I'm sure.

    Also: excited for Fatal Frame V localization. :desu:

    I need to see more, but this snippet has me interested at the very least. Setting seems to be going for what Persona likes to do as a setup, normal world with alternate world. Really wish they would show more of the combat system. I was really hoping for something closer to Devil Survivor and not the usual SMT because I'm one of those assholes who likes the former much more then the latter.

    Either this is some April fools joke that I'm not getting or now I'm left WISHING that the SMT x FE game was vaporware. With Atlus these days it seems like SMT is a loose term and could mean anything, because I'm not seeing the SMT. Or FE for that matter. What a waste of a concept lol.
