Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE is an original jRPG that takes players to modern Tokyo. The title was produced by Atlus and Nintendo. The game was announced for the first time in 2010. The ambitious project is a combination of two popular series: tactical Fire Emblem and turn-based jRPG Shin Megami Tensei, whose most popular representatives are games from under the Persona franchise. During the production process, the title has undergone a major evolution, eventually debuting in Japan in December 2015. At that time, it was met with great critical acclaim, but also with little interest on the part of the players themselves, which resulted in exceptionally low sales results.
The main character of Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE is a teenage boy named Itsuki Aoi, who by accident becomes a member of the talent agency Fortuna Entertainment. Together with other characters he meets in the company, he tries to make a name for himself in the world of show-business. Soon, the protagonists also gets involved with mysterious beings from another dimension, so-called Mirages, which imperceptibly attack our world, absorbing human energy called Performa. The protagonist and his allies join forces with several friendly Mirages, inspired by characters from the Fire Emblem series, who decide to help in the fight against the threat. Thanks to the established cooperation Itsuki is able to undergo a special transformation, thanks to which he can face the thieves of Performa.
The course of the game in Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE is similar to that of the Persona series. During the game, players can travel through locations depicting the two districts of Tokyo - Shibuya and Harajuku. On the spot we meet with numerous NPCs, who have various side tasks for us. In addition, we also travel to another world, built in the form of labyrinths, designed in a style thematically related to the entertainment industry. Combat takes place in turn-based system on separate arenas. Team members have many types of attacks with magical properties, which we use when looking for weaknesses in the enemies.
The visuals of Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE are extremely colorful and spectacular, despite the limitations imposed by the Wii U console. Also noteworthy is the soundtrack with j-pop songs, composed especially with the title.
