Atlus recently announced localization plans for Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey for the Nintendo DS.  The game, which received a 36 from Famitsu (the highest score ever awarded to an SMT title), has been labeled a ‘First Person Science Fiction RPG’ and is set for a Spring 2010 release.

More info and a smattering of screenshots after the jump.


The game takes place in the near future when a strange black void has appeared in the South Pole of Earth.  Atlus has likened the game’s mechanics to Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne and has promised no fewer than 300 demons to “bribe, coerce, and negotiate with.”

So, Elder-Geeks, are you looking forward to this or do you think it’ll be too much for a handheld?

  1. This will be a Strange Journey for SMT games. Should be good, if it is like most SMT games, then it will be good. Besides, Atlus publishes a lot of top notch games.

  2. Although it’s games like these that make me want a DSi LL/XL — that’s a lot of text and info to squeeze into a tiny screen.

  3. I still need to pick up Devil Survivor first. But I’m sure this game will be great, I don’t think I’ve ever been disappointed with Atlus.

  4. I haven’t played an Atlus game I have been disappointed with… but I can’t get into the handhelds anymore… I just don’t have the time.

    1. Shouldn’t it be the other way around, you don’t have time for consoles. Handhelds are well, portable, and they are a good time killer.

      1. Maybe, but when I’m not home, I’m always busy. Either I’m at school doing homework or working out at the gym or busy in my section of ASCE.
