Atlus Reveals Shin Megami Tensei: Deep Strange Journey Remake for Fall
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Atlus announced during its "New Title Announcement Special Spring 2017" livestream on Sunday that it is developing Shin Megami Tensei: Deep Strange Journey for the Nintendo 3DS, a remake of its Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey Nintendo DS role-playing game. The game is slated for fall.
The game will use the original game as a base while also adding original content, and the ability to save at any time even while exploring dungeons. The game adds a new ending, and an original character (seen in visual below) voiced by Megumi Han.
The game's official website notes that this week's issue of Kadokawa's Weekly Famitsu magazine will have more information on Thursday.
The original game shipped in Japan in 2009, and in North America in 2010. In the game's story, a dimensional portal opens in Antarctica, consuming anything it touches and expanding to potentially threaten the Earth. The United Nations sends a task force to investigate the nature of the phenomenon. The player creates and names a character and explores dungeons within the portal. Like many games in the Shin Megami Tensei series, the player explores the dungeons in a first-person perspective, and may bargain with demons to recruit them. The original game had three possible endings.
Atlus announced its 25th anniversary project for the Shin Megami Tensei video game series in January. The official website for the 25th anniversary project later revealed that the project will include a new game for the Nintendo 3DS.
Atlus is also developing a Shin Megami Tensei game for the Nintendo Switch platform as part of the anniversary project.
