Shin Megami Tensei: Deep Strange Journey announced for the Nintendo 3DS, out this Fall (Japan)

Update: here’s the first screenshots for Shin Megami Tensei: Deep Strange Journey, courtesy of Famitsu:


Remember the mysterious Shin Megami Tensei game announced for the Nintendo 3DS back in January, alongside the HD project from the Nintendo Switch Presentation 2017? Well, as some fans speculated, the game is indeed related to Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey, but not really a proper sequel. It’s called Shin Megami Tensei: Deep Strange Journey.

As the title implies, it’s actually an enhanced port, with some additional content and various improvements such as a new character, voice acting, and more. It was announced today, during Atlus’ livestream.

Here’s the debut trailer:

On the official website, Atlus specifies that the game will be featured in Famitsu magazine next week (on Thursday), which means we won’t have to wait too long before getting more details about the game. After all, it will not be released until this Fall in Japan, so there was a chance we would not hear about it for several weeks, if not months.

During the livestream, Atlus also showed an extended version of the trailer for the new Shin Megami Tensei project. Unfortunately, said trailer isn’t available online at the moment, but the extra segment didn’t show much. Here’s a screenshot of the only new element from the trailer:

Finally, Atlus announced that from March 27th to April 10th, Shin Megami Tensei IV Apocalypse would be on sale on the Nintendo eShop. It will only cost 2 500 Yen! That sale has been added to our Nintendo eShop Sales page.

Finally, here’s some screencaps from the livestream:
