Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore concert canceled due to public health concerns

Update: April 28th, 12:38 PM PT — Details surrounding the concert’s uncertain future have been clarified in this article.

The Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore Premium Live music concert, which was originally scheduled to take place on June 27th at the Tokyo Dome City Hall, received an update on its official site today to announce that the event has been canceled at this time.

As with many other public gatherings worldwide, such as the recently canceled Fire Emblem Expo II, the concert was held off as a countermeasure against the coronavirus pandemic in order to prioritize the safety of all involved.

At the time of this writing, Avex has not yet shared details on how would-be event goers may refund their tickets if they wish, but advise holding onto them in the interim as they will update the site later again to provide more information.

By the end of their closing remarks apologizing to fans for the inconvenience, Avex did not share any concrete alternatives for the event, such as next month’s plans for Fire Emblem Expo II. However, the notice is carefully worded and suggests the concert may or may not be rescheduled after enough consideration. Only time will tell whether or not Tokyo Mirage Sessions will take the real-world stage again.

In the months leading up to the event, Avex released a new soundtrack CD for Encore, the Best Sound Collection, containing all the music from the game including those which would have been performed on stage by the game’s voice actors. Early copies of the CD even offered a sweepstakes to win tickets in advance, but that giveaway may unfortunately be in vain.

If you’re interested in owning the CD, it is available to order on Amazon JP, and its music may also be bought via the likes of the iTunes Store.
