Shin Megami Tensei 3: Nocturne HD Remaster Is Coming to PS4 and Nintendo Switch

Shin Megami Tensei 3: Nocturne HD Remaster is coming to PS4 and Nintendo Switch in Spring 2021, according to the Nintendo Direct Mini.

Two Shin Megami Tensei announcements in one day? Am I dreaming? In today’s earlier Nintendo Direct Mini, it was revealed that a port of 2003 Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne — now titled Shin Megami Tensei 3: Nocture HD Remaster — will be making its way to Nintendo Switch sometime in Spring 2021. If you were hoping for some SMT love from this Nintendo Direct, it seems like you’ve hit the jackpot.

Seen in the video below, you can see the trailer for Shin Megami Tensei 3: Nocturne HD Remaster below:

While the Nintendo Direct obviously didn’t touch this news, the remaster will also be making its way over to PS4. According to the dedicated Japanese site, we can expect Nocturne to release on the same time for both Nintendo Switch and PS4.

On top of the announcements, it looks like the Japanese site lists both the box art and a Collector’s Edition for Shin Megami Tensei 3: Nocturne HD Remaster

While the Japanese site lists an October 29 release date, the Nintendo Direct confirms that Western audiences can expect the game sometime in Spring 2021. It isn’t officially clear that the PS4 version will also be ported, but we will keep an eye on the news and update the story accordingly.

In other SMT news, we also got a brand new trailer for Shin Megami Tensei 5 — something that the dedicated fanbase has eagerly been waiting for since Nintendo Switch’s pre-release showcase all the way back in January 2017. The game continues to look great, especially with the news that we will get a simultaneous worldwide release sometime in 2021. Here’s hoping we get more news about this coming soon.

As mentioned above, Shin Megami Tensei 3: Nocturne HD Remaster will be coming to Nintendo Switch in the West sometime in Spring 2021; anyone buying from Japan can grab the game on PS4 and Switch on October 29, 2020.
