Tokyo Mirage Sessions FE (Japanese: 幻影異聞録♯FE Illusion Strange Account ♯FE) is a role-playing game for Wii U, developed by Atlus. It is a spin-off game of the Fire Emblem series which combines characters and elements from Fire Emblem with the gameplay style of Atlus's flagship RPG series Megami Tensei.

An enhanced port called Tokyo Mirage Sessions ♯FE Encore (Japanese: 幻影異聞録♯FE Encore Illusion Strange Account ♯FE Encore) was released for Nintendo Switch in January 2020.

There are seven playable Mirage Masters along with their seven corresponding Mirage partners. There are also three major supporting cast characters that are not controlled by the player, but can give benefit through Backup Skills. In Encore, they can also use Jump-in Session skills, allowing them to participate in sessions.


This title was announced in the January 23, 2013 Nintendo Direct broadcast in North America, Europe, and Japan, in the form of a brief teaser, under the title of Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem.[1] Nothing else was revealed about it at the time beyond the fact that it is currently in development. In the broadcast, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata claimed that the crossover is an example of Nintendo taking a new approach to game production, as necessitated by the scale of games for Wii U.[2] To illustrate the crossover, the trailer featured stock art of a number of characters from both series, with the Fire Emblem side showing every Lord from The Binding Blade onward.

After an absence of over two years from the public eye, the game made its formal debut with a trailer in the April 10, 2015 Nintendo Direct broadcast.[3] The trailer revealed the game was inspired more by Persona,[citation needed] a prominent sub-series of Megami Tensei, and shares many of its concepts. It showed the game to be set in an alternate-universe version of Tokyo, which crosses over with another realm where Fire Emblem-esque entities appear to dwell; in this trailer, the only actual Fire Emblem characters definitively shown were Tiki, here depicted as a young pop idol, Gangrel and Aversa, reinterpreted as enemy monsters, and Chrom, Tharja, Virion, Cain, Caeda, and Draug as Mirage partners.

The game was released in Japan on December 26, 2015, with international releases following in June 2016.

In Famitsu, Tokyo Mirage Sessions was awarded 34/40, with its reviewers praising the game's premise, artstyle, and quality gameplay typical of an Atlus title; one reviewer, however, lamented the game's limited Fire Emblem references.[4]

Tokyo Mirage Sessions had a very poor opening week of sales in Japan according to Famitsu. It sold only 23,806 copies in its first week on the market, a figure well below other recent Fire Emblem, Megami Tensei, and Persona titles.[5] It was later reported to have sold 37,000 copies as of April 2016.[6] The game sold approximately 50,000 copies in its opening week in the United States of America.[6]

Encore's physical sales on opening week debuted at numbers similar to, albeit less than, the original release, selling 18,797 copies in Japan.[7]


  • Tokyo Mirage Sessions ♯FE is the only Fire Emblem series related game released on the Wii U, excluding Virtual Console releases and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U.
  • In Fire Emblem Heroes, characters from Tokyo Mirage Sessions ♯FE are the only ones not to use music from their own game as battle music in Heroic Ordeals. Since there is no default overworld theme, such characters use the normal Tokyo Mirage Sessions battle theme as their map theme and the Heroes Veronica/Legendary/Mythic battle theme for battle.
  • A crossover between the Pokémon and the Fire Emblem series was very briefly considered before Tokyo Mirage Sessions ♯FE began development as an Atlus project.[8]

Tokyo Mirage Sessions ♯FE

♯ is the sharp symbol used in musical notation to denote that the note is half a note higher. Tokyo Mirage Sessions's initials are "TMS", which is the reverse of "SMT", or Shin Megami Tensei. The title refers to Tokyo, the game's setting, Mirages, beings from another world prominent in the game, and Sessions, a gameplay mechanic which causes multiple characters to attack in succession.

The sharp symbol is often written as a number sign (#).



Illusion Strange Account ♯FE. In the logo, シャープエフイー is applied as furigana.

幻影 gen'ei "illusion" refers to the Mirages. The word 異聞録 ibunroku "strange account" is taken from the Japanese names of the first games in the Persona and Devil Survivor series, which went by the moniker 女神異聞録 Megami Ibunroku "Goddess Strange Account" in Japan.

The sharp symbol is often written as a number sign (#). Sometimes, "FE" is written in fullwidth text (as "FE").

  8. "Yamagami (Nintendo Producer): 5 years ago, Ms. Andou proposed a plan [for a crossover], saying “You know, I think FE and Pokémon's rules are pretty compatible!” Though I agreed with her, by chance the Pokémon group had already proposed what eventually became Pokémon Conquest at the same time [so we were unable to follow through].
    Andou (Nintendo Director): Yes, which I was in charge of too.
    Yamagami (Nintendo Producer): As the plan was a secret, she was put in charge of that first. (Laughs). And then, it took her less than a week to say, “Here’s the next plan.” The new plan was a collaboration with Atlus. At that time, new games like Xenoblade and Pandora’s Tower were coming out, and, because I myself was quite interested in Atlus’s games, I figured “This could work!” At first, we made informal plans within our own small group, but…"
