Rumors swirl online of an impending announcement
Back in 2013, Nintendo and Atlus unveiled Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem, a crossover game between the two cult franchises. Since that initial announcement (and a quick trailer) there has been no reports on the game.
At this past year's E3, Nintendo producer, Hitoshi Yamagami, confirmed that the game was still on schedule. However, no footage, or screenshots were shown. This was quite a strange thing - given how long the game had been in development.
Now, rumors have started making their way through the Internet, that the game has been scrapped. The original source - 4chan - is questionable, but its users have been known to be right on some occasions.
The original post has since been taken down, but thanks to Nintendo Life, we get the drift of what has led to the "supposed" cancellation. According to the post, the main issue seems to be that the Shin Megami Tensei team and Fire Emblem team had two very different viewpoints on how the game should be handled. It was also mentioned that the game had to be restarted 5 times, which greatly affected the team's morale. Finally, they were able to put up a version of the game for approval, however, both Nintendo and Atlus denied it, saying that the game did not meet the standards set by either company.
The post states that IGN will be announcing the cancellation tomorrow. Until then, take this rumor with a grain of salt...
So do you believe that the project has been scrapped? Do you have faith that Nintedno and Atlus can pull this crossover off? Let us know in the comment below.
