Club Nintendo Offering $30 eShop Credit If You Register Fire Emblem Awakening And Shin Megami Tensei IV

SMT X FE promotion

Nintendo has launched a promotion on its Club Nintendo program that if you register both Fire Emblem Awakening and Shin Megami Tensei IV, you’ll get an extra $30 added to your eShop account. The promotion will last from the release of SMT IV (which is next Tuesday) all the way to August 31st. According to the press release, both games must be registered to the same Club Nintendo account and within the time frame of the promotion. [UPDATE] Both games have to be registered by August 31st to qualify for the promotion. Also, it’s confirmed via Tiny Cartridge that if you registered your game beforehand, like around the FE: Awakening launch, it counts. It also says it at the bottom of the promo page. More details about how to redeem your $30 credit can be viewed on the Club Nintendo website.

While some might think this to be some random pairing of games for a promotion, this actually ties back to the fact that Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem actually still exists and that it’s in development. Sad we didn’t hear anything about the game at E3. But if this promotion is anything, that means this project is still alive and well.

Yes, Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem and “X” Are Getting Release In The U.S. (I Thought We Knew This Already)

SMT X FE

Several weeks ago Nintendo revealed in their Nintendo Direct presentation that they were collaborating with Atlus to make Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem. After the awesome as hell revelation, there was also the reveal of “X”, that secret project that Xenoblade developers Monolith Soft was making. For some reason, there were, and still are, quite a few that were fearful that these games wouldn’t get a U.S. release. I don’t blame them given the state of JRPGs in the U.S. lately (though it is improving). But c’mon, it’s pretty obvious that the U.S. is getting these games. I mean, 1) they were announced on a U.S. Nintendo Direct, and 2) in the case of SMT X FE, the logo for Shin Megami Tensei that is used in the trailer (pictured) is the western logo. If it was just confirmed for Japan, they would use Japanese logo instead. Also, the Fire Emblem logo is also the western one used for Fire Emblem Awakening.

Unless otherwise stated, these games are 100% confirmed coming to the U.S. You can put your fears to rest.
