I'm not really sure where would be the best place to ask my question since there isn't a page for the game itself at the moment, so I'll post it on both Shin Megami Tensei IV and Fire Emblem: Awakening forums. My question is if anyone thinks there will be a possibility of a special Wii U console release when the game finally comes out? I mean I noticed that Fire Emblem Awakening had a special 3ds and Shin Megami Tensei is supposed to have all kinds of bonuses in the first print, so I was just thinking of the odds of it happening since I don't have a Wii U yet but if a special model was released with Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem I'd probably get it regardless of price.

It's actually a really good question. My gut reaction would be that we will not see a special edition Wii U bundle with this release, but who knows? I guess a lot depends on what the release window for the game is.

Assuming the game releases later this year, I think we are far more likely to see a Wind Waker Wii U bundle around the holidays than we are a Fire Emblem x Shin Megami Tensei bundle.

Despite the great reviews and commercial success for FE Awakening in the US (it sold about 160,000 copies at retail and another 60,000 or so via the Nintendo eShop), the FE franchise is still very niche. Shin Megami Tensei is probably even more so. I doubt that we will see the Shin Megami Tensei IV 3DS XL bundle that Japan is getting released in the US.

My point is that Nintendo will likely release a Wii U bundle in order to move systems. Wind Waker probably appeals to a broader audience and I think that game is more likely to get a special edition bundle. Just my thoughts.

Yeah, while I think this game will be relatively big, I still think it will be too niche to get a bundle release here. In Japan though? Yeah they'll probably get a bundle. FE and SMT are huge there.

Yea to be honest we should be really glad just to get these types of games. That's why I always pre-order them though.

As a side note I'm not sure if you guys have access to a Vita but Persona 4:The Golden is amazing if you're into Atlus IP's. One of the best games I've ever played.

Well.. I am not sure.. I would say I am split.. basically you have two top franchises in RPG's colliding.. I think there may not be a special Wii U bundle if it comes out.. to inspire both system sells.. and game sells.. (The idea being you have to get a system.. and at least one game which makes more profit for everyone) However, I think bundling a Fire Emblem game with Wii U.. can actually help it.. (After all at this point how many things can hurt it?) and since both series are well known.. it may be a good idea.. on a system sell front.... So I would say maybe a 50/50 to a 55/45 chance of seeing it... But it really is up to Nintendo.. and Atlus... I think Atlus may not have a problem with it.. Nintendo might... pending on how uhm..Mature the game might be..

Fire Emblem x Shin Megami Tensei? It's possible down the line, if Nintendo really puts there all into, but like others have said FE and SMT aren't exactly mainstream so it's a small possiblity. Regardless if there is or isn't a bundle I'll still buy it, hell when this game was announced I decided to that I had to get a Wii U, this game and Smash Bros Wii U are my reasons for getting a Wii U. Though ZombiU is pretty fun...

I dont think that a special bundle will be released in America due to the relatively small fan base for both of the IP's (although Nintendo and Atlus have advertised the crap out of both games so who knows if the fanbase will continue to expand) in America. Im just really excited for the game, even though it'll be ridiculously difficult. I wonder if it will be a Strategy RPG or a Tradition RPG, or an amalgamation of the two (kind of like Devil Survivor). Either way, I'm gonna get it.

A special Wii U bundle for SmT x FE would be nice. Low chances of it, esp in the US, but it would make me want one way more than I do now.
