First mentioned in times long past (2013), Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem is at last a real thing. Nintendo and Atlus recently showed off the planned crossover, which now bears the title of Genei Ibunroku #FE, or Illusory Revelations Sharp FE.
The setting tilts more towards the Shin Megami Tensei side of things, taking place in a modern Japan that exists alongside a hidden fantasy universe, from which the Fire Emblem characters emerge. How exactly this mixture works has not yet been detailed, though a trailer has been released on yonder YouTube, and the official site (in Japanese) is available hereabouts.
The title is planned for a winter release in Japan; a global release has yet to be announced.
Atlus has elaborated on the use of StreetPass and SpotPass in Devil Survivor 2: Record Breaker. StreetPass will allow players to pass skills and stat bonuses to each others’ demons, with both the demon and the passed bonuses chosen at random. SpotPass will deliver additional content after launch, such as entirely new demons and abilities.
Record Breaker hits the 3DS in North America on May 5.

Friendly reminder: Break Record launches in Japan on January 25.
At its Tokyo Game Show stage event today, Atlus announced that Devil Survivor 2: Break Record will launch on January 29, 2015 for the 3DS. This came at the end of a new trailer for the title, which you can see for yourselve over on YouTube.
Amidst a roundtable on the 3DS’ newly announced Code Name S.T.E.A.M., one attendee asked for an update on Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem, which is being developed by the same company (Intelligent Systems). Nintendo’s Hitoshi Yamagami stated only that, “We’re right on schedule,” adding that “if I answer in any more detail I will lose my job so please have mercy on me.”
Atlus has announced that Shin Megami Tensei IV will launch for Europe in Q3 this year. The company will self-publish the title, which will be available only as a digital release through the Nintendo eShop.
After dropping a hint or two on Reddit, Atlus has re-released Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne for the PlayStation Network. Relive fond memories of post-apocalyptic Tokyo – and the game that had to license the name “Nocturne” thanks to action/horror title of the same name – for $9.99.
Atlus has announced that the very first Shin Megami Tensei, which has not left Japan thus far, will at last be getting an English release on iOS. A port of the 2003 GBA version, Shin Megami Tensei will be available on iOS next month.
Devil Survivor 2: Break Record reportedly will not make its planned fall 2013 release window. Atlus announced that the 3DS port/update has been pushed back to 2014, stating that the move would allow for further improvements to the game.
Citing “challenges faced in the current retail sector”, Devil Survivor 2‘s UK publisher Ghostlight has reached out to players with an unusual request. To ensure the title gets manufactured, the publisher is asking for 1800 or more preorders, available through the company’s online store. If this goal is reached, the title will be out in September, though all preorders will be refunded if it fails.
Shin Megami Tensei IV will feature DLC at launch, according to Atlus. The content will include custom hairstyles (free), a ‘platinum surcoat’ armor set (free for the first month, $1 afterwards), and an early-game map pack ($2). More content is planned and will be revealed as the title nears its launch day of July 16.
