Well, I haven't played any of the past games, so I have no idea what in Yomi the localization schedule is like.

OMG, whats with all the RPGs crawling out of the wood work, and its only January.

Its my favorite genre and all but they're such huge time sinks and there are so many coming out as it is, never mind whats already out.

With the Pokemon and Nobunaga's Ambition crossover and now this, Nintendo has officially regained my interest. And after reading this:

quote IGN
As for Nintendo’s partnership with Atlus on this one, company president Satoru Iwata commented that as development of games grows larger and larger, “Nintendo cannot use the same approaches we have in the past.” Iwata also hinted that the company has “many more partners,” ones that will apparently be revealed sometime soon (perhaps in future Nintendo Direct broadcasts).
Source. I'm really interested now in what other franchises they might crossover with.

And if they work with Square-Enix for a follow up to Mario RPG I'll become a convert on the spot.

Be careful, there. Pay attention to his choice of words. He said Nintendo would be working with other companies, not that they'd necessarily be doing more crossovers. Just take the new Super Smash Bros as an example; they are working with Namco Bandai to make that.

I just realized the characters from SMT IV are in the trailer.
SMT IV for the West confirmed ;3
It's a main-series SMT game. In what universe were Atlus not going to publish it in North America? It's Europe that has a bigger question mark hanging over it, but even a release here should be pretty likely for a main-series game.
SMT I, SMT II, SMT What if...

That was then, though. Barely anything got localised back in those dark times. Atlus are now publishing pretty nearly every game they make in North America, and most of them make it to Europe. Of the ones that haven't, it's mainly been DS games, due to the fact that the DS is region-free, and thus most of the potential audience would have already imported the game from America.

Wait, what?
The "x"s are usually Fighter games right?

I am so excited for this. Anything fire emblem is fantastic, and we really need a decent game to redeem ourselves from shadow dragon. Hopefully this and Awakening will do that.

"x" has been referring to "Cross" in most games recently, and those kind of crossovers have been coming in a variety of different genres lately. Vs. has been the term used mainly for fighting games.

Edit: For the record, Index's press site confirms the game to be an RPG.
