Genei Ibun Roku #FE: Mastering Your Mirage

During their version of the November Nintendo Direct, Nintendo of Japan provided another brief look at Genei Ibun Roku #FE.


Perhaps worried that everyone had forgotten about the game, the trailer spent a lot of time introducing the game as a modern day RPG that blends in elements from the Shin Megami Tensei and Fire Emblem games.

Towards the latter half, however, there were some new nuggets of information related to the heroes’ otherworldly partners–the Mirages.

Firstly, characters acquire skills as they battle with their Mirage.

As you might expect, skills can be used during battle to cause various effects.

Many of the skills on offer are derived from the Shin Megami Tensei series, like Sukunda and Bufula, but there are some from Fire Emblem as well, such as Flux +1.

Anyway, during the trailer, Kiria receives the Tarunda skill from Tharja; in addition, there is a partially filled bar for the next skill Agilao.

What’s curious is that Tharja has a “Carnage” called Vajra equipped and it’s this particular Carnage that seems to be granting the skills.

In the next sequence, players can speak to Tiki to undergo “Carnage Unity” or “Radiant Unity” (or ask her for Unity-related help).

Carnage Unity uses materials earned from battle and other means to create weapons known as “Carnage” for Mirages to equip.

Each Carnage has its own weaknesses and resistances (although the ones shown are the same), Attack rating and set of skills. Presumably, once all the skills have been learned, the Carnage is considered “Mastered”.


In the example, Chrom currently has an “Iron Sword” Carnage equipped and it seems he starts with the “Sealed Falchion” Carnage (just like in Awakening).

Meanwhile, if you want to upgrade to the stronger “Épée Rapier” Carnage, you’ll need to hand over 1 Blade Force, 1 Deep Sea Illumination and 2 lots of 1-Star Stardoms.


Sadly, we don’t get to see Radiant Unity in action, but we do learn that Mirages can Class Change like in the Fire Emblem games they’re from.

Caeda, Tsubasa’s Mirage, is shown changing class from a Pegasus Knight to a Falcon Knight or Dracoknight using a Master Seal.

Like in Fire Emblem, Falcon Knights have improved Speed and Resistance, while Dracoknights boast higher Defence and Skill.

Besides improving stats, changing classes apparently alters the character’s Mirage Attack too; as a Pegasus Knight, Tsubasa has the “Aerial Dance” attack, while she has “Grand Finale” as a Falcon Knight.

Lastly, completionists may be pleased to know that achievements of some form will feature.

After changing class to Falcon Knight, a pop-up appears in the bottom-right corner displaying the “Birth of a Falcon Knight” achievement (literally “Play Record”).

Similarly, after walloping a whole bunch of enemies at once with Grand Finale, the “Performance Beginner” achievement is earned.

Unrelated to the game itself, from 1st December 2015 (weeks before the game launches), three songs from Genei Ibun Roku #FE will be released for Wii Karaoke U.

  • “Reincarnation” by Kiria
  • “Feel” by Tsubasa
  • “Beastie Game” by Tiki
