Shin Megami Tensei Strange Journey Officially Revealed

It’s not for the PS3 as I was expecting from the “leak” last time but maybe that’s good news since I’ll be able to play it! I guess the DS could be considered “new hardware” since it has received a proper SMT game yet.

Shin Megami Tensei Strange Journey will be for the DS on October 8th. Taking place in the early 21st century, a portal to another dimension in the South Pole, dubbed “Schwarzbirth” by the United Nations, has appeared and is threatening mankind’s existence. In order not to spread panic it is kept a secret but as the portal grows in size, a Schwarzbirth Investigation Unit is formed to find out what’s inside.

The RPG will feature…

  • An upgradable “Demonica Suit” using software applications.
  • Conversation system to convince demons to join you.
  • Over 300 demons at your fusion disposal.

And the staff are…

  • Producer/Character and Devil Design: Kazuma Kaneko
  • Director: Eiji Ishida (SMT3/Raidou/Raidou2)
  • Scenario: Shogo Isogai (SMT3/Raidou/Trauma Centre series)
  • Composer: Shoji Meguro

MegaTen on DS

The official site will be open next Monday together with a trailer.

    Oh hay look it’s Mirei xD lol wth…

    Anyways! I see Atlus has been developing a lot of titles for the DS lately. Makes me wanna go buy one since I’ve been curious about Devil Survivor I’ll admit 😛 And a question of non-importance: Schwarz is German for black right? .-.

    Yes! I’m glad it’s coming on the good old DS. I’m just playing Devil Survivor right now and I’m really enjoying it. So yeah, I don’t expect anything less from this new SMT!

    W00T! Is it THAT Mirei? The very same!? 😀

    I’m not sure if that’s what “Schwarz” means. Maybe someone who knows German can answer that question.
