Avex, the entertainment company responsible for the creative development of Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE, announced today that they will be publishing new versions of select character theme songs from the game on June 27th.
This free online distribution of music is being done as compensation for the cancellation of the Premium Live concert, which would have been held on the same day at the Tokyo Dome City Hall in Japan with all of the game’s performing actors, but unfortunately needed to be held off in light of public health concerns.
George Aburai, character song producer at Avex, comments that this special news is being made on the same date as the original Tokyo Mirage Sessions concert in 2016 (May 15th), and that music is entertainment one should be able to enjoy by themselves or at home, thus these new “single cut” editions of songs will hopefully make it up to fans who were looking forward to the 2020 concert.
The seven songs to be published on Saturday, June 27th are as follows:
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.
In the Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore game for Nintendo Switch, players help a group of aspiring performing artists fend off an otherworldly threat in a fashion signature to the brand of Atlus games, and with the help of Fire Emblem allies like Chrom and Caeda who’ve lost their memories and need a way back home.
Putting it this way, it may be easy to think Tokyo Mirage Sessions would be a confusing game to play, given that it’s conceptually unprecedented. That is not the case: the game in fact does a fairly good job of making sure the player has a strong grasp of its systems in order to enjoy it thoroughly to the very end.
Even with that in mind, we’ve prepared a variety of tips and tricks to help any newcomers catch on to things a bit quicker and hopefully make their time with Encore even better.
We’ll try not to cover too much about the things the game already explains to you, because it already does that well enough. Our little guide here is more for things we think you might like to figure out sooner and get you up to speed on what you should know.
The grand moment is upon us! Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore is arriving on the scene across the globe as we speak. In fact, some of you may have already begun your career in showbiz!
To mark this occasion, we’re taking the opportunity to look back and remember the insightful messages left behind by some of the key members of the development team of the original Tokyo Mirage Sessions on Wii U, from the pages of the art book for its Special Edition (also known as the Fortissimo Edition). Read on to see what they had to say back when they were wrapping things up on this unique project.
