With Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem all but canned–likely because Fire Emblem proved to be just a tad too…“marketable,” let’s say, for the likes of Shin Megami Tensei–that doesn’t mean SMT fans should lose all hope for a quality crossover title. Indeed, there are a host of evergreen, license-fee-minimal syndicated franchises just begging for modern relevancy. Just look at the possibilities:
Shin Megami Tensei X Roseanne. PITCH: Roseanne wakes up from a dream where she rules as Queen of Demons…only to find the dream is real.
Shin Megami Tensei X All in the Family: PITCH: Archie Bunker’s bigoted ways land him in hot water…in the mouth of Abaddon.
Shin Megami Tensei X Magnum, P.I. PITCH: When Thomas Magnum receives a strange wrist computer from his benefactor Robin Masters, he subsequently finds Higgins’ throat shredded by claw marks…and the Hawaiian islands in supernatural upheaval.
Shin Megami Tensei X ALF. PITCH: After discovering a mysterious email on Willie’s computer, ALF accidentally triggers a portal to a demonic dimension…replete with divinely appetizing felines.
Shin Megami Tensei X The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. PITCH: Carlton Banks makes a Faustian deal to attend an Ivy League university…at the cost of becoming the vessel of Chaos.
