Shuffle Your Memories With The Latest Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne HD Trailer
PS4, Switch remaster Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne HD showcases more characters, demons and madness in its new trailer.
After teasing it over Twitter on September 2, Atlus published on September 3 a new trailer for Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne HD. The trailer goes over the game’s story, reintroducing its characters and showcasing some of the battle system. It’s a pretty good memory Shuffle! if you tried out the original. The trailer is also a good occasion to notice once again how the game is fully voiced by a brand new cast. It’s full of popular seiyuu, some of which worked on recent Atlus productions such as Persona 5 (Royal). Raidou is most notably voiced by Tomokazu Sugita, and the cat Gouto by Joji Nakata.
The final scene of the trailer reminds us Atlus, with Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne HD Remaster, also brought back Capcom and Devil May Cry protagonist Dante via a paid DLC. You can hear Dante’s cool voice by Toshiyuki Morikawa. A special trailer showcasing the demon slayer was shared a few weeks ago.
Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne HD Remaster Japanese Trailer 2
Atlus games tend to have much more pre-release promotion material in Japan than in the west, so I assume an English version of the trailer won’t be coming anytime soon. Some might also say Japanese games reveal and spoil too much before release, but I wholeheartedly disagree.
Shin Megami Tensei 3: Nocturne HD Remaster will release for PS4 and Nintendo Switch in Japan on October 29. The remaster will be localized a bit later and come west in Spring 2021. No precise date was shared yet by Atlus West and Sega. We’ll be sure to tell you as soon as possible when the announcement rolls around.
Shin Megami Tensei V is also coming soon to Nintendo Switch, with a worldwide simultaneous release planned for 2021. Likely before March 2021. Be sure to check out our analysis of the game’s latest trailer. Personally, I’m quite happy we’re finally not seeing the same “SMT V doesn’t exist” jokes over and over again, and I’m hyped for the game itself.
