While Shin Megami Tensei x Fire Emblem failed to set the Media Create charts on fire in Japan, the game has been awarded the coveted Dengeki Online Award 2015 and has been dubbed an RPG masterpiece. We have yet to find out when the game will be launching over here in the west, but with such glowing praise it certainly can’t come soon enough.
- Dengeki cited the game as a masterpiece and one of the best RPG titles in recent years.
- Dengeki praises the RPG system in the game citing how the Session system is a nice evolution of the Press Turn system used in the Shin Megami Tensei games.
- Contrast to some of the impressions made by our members (NeoGAF), the publication found the coming of age story to be quite refreshing and they enjoyed following the struggles, dreams, and success stories of the characters in the entertainment business. It was a nice alternative to the overly dark motif in the MegaTen franchise.
- Dengeki then goes to cover more of the battle systems and the RPG and game mechanics and cites that their time with the game clocked in over 60 hours throughout their play period.
