Megami Tensei Imagine Beta Sign-ups For the West

Free Online Game Megami Tensei Imagine Going West

All you people who have been wanting to play Atlus’ online Shin Megami Tensei Imagine in English will soon be able to because Aeria Games have announced they’ve acquired it. While all the familiar MegaTen elements are there, those looking for P3 “shooting in the head” however, will have to look elsewhere.

It’s a fun free MMORPG to play for those who like a dark visual world with a matching mystery story centring around a giant monolith. You’re going to have to pay to get hold of the special items that really distinguish your character, though. There’s no date for this English version yet but, keep your eyes peeled for the beta.
