Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore is set to release on the Nintendo Switch in just a couple months on Jan. 17, 2020. We already know that the long-requested port of the Wii U idol RPG is set to include a variety of new content. Thanks to new details coming from the Dec. 5 Famitsu, we know a few more specifics on what that new content is.
A huge part of Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore is the music. Every character in the game is some kind of performer or musician, so their songs play a big part in the story and even the gameplay. The Switch port of Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE is going to include a bunch of new songs and accompanying music videos. Kiria Kurono and Tsubasa Oribe, specifically, are set to get some new songs. Of course, other characters besides them will be performing new tunes as well.
All of the new songs in Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore will be produced by the Japanese production company Avex. When I went to look up any notable Japanese artists signed under them, I discovered that they’re the Japanese label of my queen Carly Rae Jepsen. So hopefully she makes it in as DLC, or something.
Besides new songs, there’s a bunch of new costumes in Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore. Players can even customize the costumes a bit, being given the option to take off Tsubasa’s glasses if they so choose. Maiko Shimazaki, an NPC from the original game, gets a new battle costume that she dons when she participates in battle. It’s specified that she isn’t an entirely new playable character, though, so it’s unclear how or when she gets involved in battle. Iconic Fire Emblem dragon-girl Tiki also gets in on the Session battles, on top of being involved in new story content.
Speaking of story content, Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore is set to include brand new quests for the main party to undertake, including a new story that sees them exploring a new dungeon.
Get ready to play Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore on Nintendo Switch on Jan. 17, 2020.
