Atlus Bringing Their PS1 Games to the PSN
Starting with the original Shin Megami Tensei, Atlus is bringing their library of PS1 classics to the PlayStation Network. This is good news for those who started gaming more recently, and fell in love with awesome RPGs like the more recent Persona and Strange Journey franchise iterations. Perhaps gamers who enjoyed those will go back and see how it all began.
At present this is only announced for the Japanese PSN, although you can still purchase them from anywhere in the world if you have a Japanese PSN account. Just keep in mind that, obviously, the games are all in Japanese. Shin Megami Tensei will cost you roughly $12 (¥1000). I definitely wouldn’t put it past Atlus USA to eventually bring the titles to North America via our own PlayStation Store. Patience!
