Atlus Officially Announces Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey Redux For the West With New Screenshots

on June 7, 2017 11:05 AM

Last night Atlus seemed to accidentally update their website with headers for three new games, one being Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey Redux exclusive to the Nintendo 3DS.

Today, the publisher has officially announced that Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey Redux will be making its way west early 2018 for the 3DS.

The game follows the events that occured “years ago” when a spatial distortion full of demons appeared in Antarctica, threatening to engulf the Earth in Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey.

Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey Redux is an expanded port of the previous game, and contains story content, additional endings, a new dungeon to explore, and more.

The publisher details the game’s features:

  • A Stranger Journey Back – In Strange Journey Redux, you play as a brave United Nations soldier investigating a spatial anomaly called the Schwarzwelt–a dome of dark energy that threatens to consume the world. Inside, you’ll find it home to a nightmare mirror of our own Earth, populated with demons dying to meet you. The game touts brand-new illustrations by Masayuki Doi, updated visuals, UI tweaks, and more to make this journey back into the Schwarzwelt… even stranger.
  • Additional Story Content and a Brand-new Character – You won’t be retreading the same nightmarish path as before because a brand-new character named Alex will play a major role in how the story unfolds. Much about her is a mystery, but there is one thing you know for sure: she’s got a bone to pick with you. Joining her are new demons you might recognize from other SMT entries, new endings, and a new dungeon to die in–I mean, discover.
  • A True Shin Megami Tensei Adventure – With its twisted demonic sci-fi story, addictive demon-collecting fun, and multiple narrative paths to explore, Strange Journey Redux is an essential ATLUS JRPG adventure that can’t be missed!
