ATLUS has announced Shin Megami Tensei: Deep Strange Journey, a 25th-anniversary project for the series that will release as a Nintendo 3DS exclusive.
That makes sense given that this will be a remake of Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey, which saw release on Nintendo DS back in October 2009.
Strange Journey centres on a massive atomic collapse at the South Pole that creates the Schwarzelt, a black void that swallows anything that it comes into contact with – therefore threatening Earth’s existence. You play as part of a special task force formed by the United Nations to investigate and neutralise it, working alongside your crew to save humanity.
With the remake, ATLUS has added a new character called Alex that will attack the main character while they are exploring Scharzwelt. There will also new illustrations, full voice over and around 350 demons that will appear in the game.
Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey on Nintendo DS was met with a positive critical reception, sat with a 80 Metascore on Metacritic.
Shin Megami Tensei: Deep Strange Journey will release exclusively on Nintendo 3DS in Japan later this year.
