Video game localization company Atlus USA announced on Thursday that it will release the original Shin Megami Tensei game in North America for iPhone and iOS devices. The release will mark the first time the series has been localized into English. The full version of the game will be available March 18 on the App Store for US$7.99.
Atlus describes the game:
Step away from clear notions of good and evil, right and wrong. There are demons in the world, but whether they are ally or enemy depends on player actions. In Tokyo 199X, a mysterious murder leads to the emergence of demons and an escalating global conflict thanks to the rise of a charismatic rebel leader in possession of a demon army, and external forces that wish to crush such threats with extreme measures. As the protagonist, players have an unusual ability (via computer program) to communicate with and recruit demons to fight for them. As they collect demons, the program will allow you to store, summon, and fuse them to create the right team to negotiate the ever-changing balance of powers, and fight for the kind of world you ultimately wish to live in.
Atlus released Shin Megami Tensei IV in North America in June
