Nintendo Direct Teases New Xenoblade, Shin Megami Tensei-Fire Emblem Crossover
Yeah, that's a strange crossover.
01.23.13 - 9:54 AM

Today's Nintendo Direct had a couple of announcements for RPG fans, though there's not a whole lot in the way of detail for either. First is the quite-odd crossover of Shin Megami Tensei and Fire Emblem. Absolutely no details are available at this point, though the feed showed some obvious Kaneko artwork. All we know is that you got your fantasy Strategy RPG in my postapocalyptic sci-fi RPG.

Second appears to be a new Xeno title from Monolithsoft. Headed by Tetsuya Takahashi of Xeno and Soma Bringer fame, the project appears to have some sort of multiplayer aspect alongside giant mecha.

Interested in these two teases? Be sure to watch the video of today's Nintendo Direct.

UPDATE: Video of both the supposed Xenoblade Chronicles successor and Fire Emblem/Shin Megami Tensei crossover are below:
