By Brenna Hillier, Thursday, 24 January 2013 06:09 GMT

Following a very brief tease in yesterday’s enormous Nintendo Direct, Shin Megami Tensei x Fire Emblem has been confirmed by Atlus parent company Index Holdings in a Japanese press release.

Gematsu reports the announcement is short on details, offering no release date for the Wii U RPG crossover, but it did state that development will be shared by Atlus and Nintendo’s Intelligent Systems team.

Fire Emblem: Awakening, pictured, hits 3DS in the west in February in the US and in April in Europe. Shin Megami Tensei 4 has not been dated outside Japan.

Both series have avid fanbases outside Japan, and Shin Megami Tensei in particular has spawned dozens of games and spin offs, including the Persona series.
