Today marks the second coming of Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE, and Nintendo's celebrating the Resurrection by offering some snazzy new threads for the game's cast. Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore lets you find and equip costumes from other Atlus series, including Persona, Etrian Odyssey, and Shin Megami Tensei.
Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE and its recent Switch upgrade, #FE Encore, is an RPG about pop idol culture, so flashy costumes take front and center stage with the game's cast. While the original version of #FE has no shortage of cool things to wear, #FE Encore jazzes things up by adding costumes of Joker from Persona 5, the Hero from Etrian Odyssey: Nexus, and the Demonica from Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey. The costumes don't grant you any kind of extra strength, but gosh darn if they don't look cool. There's also something funny about dressing up the mild-mannered Itsuki Aoi as Joker, Atlus' number-one symbol of rebellion.
#FE is a good game to begin with, and #FE Encore is even better. In addition to the extra costumes, the Switch re-release adds a new dungeon (which is where you find most of these new costumes, incidentally) while slashing load times down to nearly nothing. Playing #FE Encore might remind you of the games referenced via the new costumes—specifically Persona 5 and Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey—but be assured #FE Encore is its own song and dance.
And that’s not all! There are costumes from Shin Megami Tensei and the Etrian Odyssey series too! pic.twitter.com/YUiHf1ykLx— Nintendo of America (@NintendoAmerica) January 15, 2020
And hey, Nintendo, Atlus—if you want to add even more costumes to #FE Encore via updates, I won't complain if you let me dress up Mamori as Jack Frost or something.
