For fans that have always wanted to play the original Shin Megami Tensei — the one that started the whole series (not counting Megami Tensei of course) — Atlus has delivered. It has been announced today that the first title in the franchise will be coming over to iOS in all its retro glory.

Shin Megami Tensei will be available for download in the Apple Store for $7.99, starting March 18th. There’s also a gameplay trailer that shows off the surprisingly excellent graphics, as well as features such as demon conversations, demon fusions, choosing between alliances (and therefore endings) and first-person dungeon crawling that have become a series staple. Hopefully at least Android will see a later release, as I’d hate to personally miss out on this great game.

Check out the trailer below.
