Another video game that once released only for the Nintendo Wii U, 2015's Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE, is finally coming to the Nintendo Switch. The new version of the game, titled Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE, was announced during yesterday's lengthy Nintendo Direct, and it's already got a release date that's only a few short months away.
Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE, for those that aren't familiar, is basically a combination of the Fire Emblem and Persona games. In fact, certain characters from the Fire Emblem franchise, like Chrom, make an appearance in the game, while "Performas" are basically just a version of Personas created out of creative energy. The new version of the game is set to release on January 17, 2020.
