One of the more interesting projects for the Wii U is Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem which is being developed by Atlus. Shinjiro Takata, the producer of the game, sat down with Games Beat to discuss just how the unlikely partnership came about. Takata says that the long-awaited project started with the company making a Nintendo DSi and Nintendo 3DS photo booth application.
“I’m not too sure, since this all happened a long time ago. But the way it all started, Atlus was involved with Nintendo when we were making a purikura [Japanese photo booth] app for the Nintendo DSi and the Nintendo 3DS. Then there was a conversation that started about whether Atlus might be in charge of making a new Fire Emblem game,” Shinjiro said. “It wasn’t anything serious at the time. I think we turned it down at first because we had too much on our plates.”
