Nine years ago the MMORPG Shin Megami Tensei: Imagine was released and players were able to explore an apocalyptic Tokyo as they formed a team of powerful demons.

Now Atlus Japan has announced that the long-running MMO will be shutting down on May 24th. They released a schedule specifying what features of the title will be discounted at what point:

  • March 11 at 16:00: End of new account registrations.
