Domenica, Gennaio 10th, 2010 by cj iwakura at www.digitaldevildb.com

Atlus USA’s website for Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey is now online. SJ marks the series’ Nintendo DS debut and according to the website is slated for a March 23rd release.

Mark your calenders and cancel all engagements!!

Included are a handful of character bios, as well as some background info on the gameplay and general setting, and some series history.

Much like the old Super Famicom Shin Megaten games, Strange Journey consists primarily of immense first person dungeons. There will also be demon recruitment, endings that vary based on alignment, and cryptic white-haired characters who may or may not be fallen angels in disguise.

SMT: Strange Journey confirmed for Nintendo DS

Venerdì, Luglio 24th, 2009 by Emilio Morales at www.digitaldevildb.com

Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey, the next title of the Megaten franchise, has been confirmed to be in development for Nintendo’s portable console, the Nintendo DS. Megami Ibunroku Devil Survivor’s success was a big hit, and appears to have inspired Atlus to develop their next game for the same console. This time around, Kazuma Kaneko will be taking the lead as the character & devil designer and producer. Other development team members include: Eiji Ishida (Director) - Shogo Isogai (Scenario) - Shoji Meguro (Composing)



As for story, this time you are a soldier enlisted on an expedition to investigate the dimensional rift at the south pole. There are 4 distinct crews in this exploration team, each in a different ship: Red Sprite No. 1’s crew are the commanders; Blue Jet No. 2 & and Gigantic No. 4 specialize in battle, and Elves No. 3 are scientists.

In order to survive in this alternate realm, the scientists have created Demonica Suits; armor that improve abilities and can be customized. Allied explorers will also play a part in the story; you cannot win alone. Your interactions with your teammates will affect the progression of the story.

With approximately 300 devils, including some new designs by Kaneko never seen before, battles will be far from dull. These devils will be obtainable as allies mainly through negotiation and fusion. Allied devils are able to give quests to find rare items, and cooperate with one another to perform extra-special maneuvers.

The game will be released on October 8th, of 2009 in Japan; no scheduled release date is confirmed elsewhere as of yet. It will be a Nintendo DS first-person view RPG with a retail price of 6,279¥. No word yet on any “innovative” stylus/touch screen features. Stange Journey hasn’t a “IV” in sight, so this is not the “next-gen” SMT game fans have been waiting for, but regardless looks to be a fantastic new addition to the Shin Megami Tensei series.

The teaser website is to be replaced by the actual official website soon, so be ready to visit once it’s open to the public.

Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey

Venerdì, Luglio 17th, 2009 by Emilio Morales at www.digitaldevildb.com

Atlus has revealed a new teaser website of what appears to be the next Megaten game, Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey. Showing a picture of Earth with the South Pole imploding and showing messages like: “This is a soldier’s hand. It’s trustworthy.”, “For us, it’s ‘hope’!”, “Don’t lose sight of yourself!”, “You came here from a rich country just to die?”, “For the future of mankind, let’s both hold our ground!”, “South Pole”.

A Japanese blogger was able to grab what seems to be the logo of the game, from the page’s source code before Atlus removed it.

Atlus will reveal more about this game on July 24th, 2009 and, supposedly, it will be released on October 8th, 2009 for Japan. But the lack of the most important details have left us hanging; will it be a spin-off? a sequel? what genre? and for what console?

Raidou vs. King Abaddon and ‘Plus’ Edition hits Japan

Venerdì, Agosto 1st, 2008 by DevilRy at www.digitaldevildb.com

Kuzunoha Raidou vs. King Abaddon Kuzunoha Raidou vs. King Abaddon Plus

October 23rd has been set as the Japanese release date for Devil Summoner Kuzunoha Raidou vs. King Abaddon, the new installment in the Devil Summoner series. A limited release version subtitled “Plus,” will also be available and features an extra disc: “Shin Megami Tensei III Nocturne Maniacs Chronicle Edition,” a new edition of Maniacs rumored to have Dante’s character replaced by Raidou. The regular edition contains a bonus soundtrack CD.

King Abaddon throws you back into the role of Raidou some years after the events in the previous game. This time around there’s over twice the amount of recruitable demons and up to two can be summoned at once. Demon negotiation has been brought back from previous titles and your demon companions are able to help you out in the process. You are even able to forge your demon partners into new types of weapons.

As of yet Atlus USA has made no announcement on a possible North American release of the ‘Plus’ edition of King Abaddon or of ‘Shin Megami Tensei III Nocturne Maniacs Chronicle Edition.’

Fredric Paul’s article touched off a discussion with some colleagues of mine, who agreed that Google abuses has become careless thanks to its “monopoly” with AdSense by (among other things) callously dropping AdSense participants for alleged click fraud without a reasonable appeals policy. A request for an explanation fell on deaf ears, and my colleague was left with the impression that Google “would have been more likely to work with me,” if it weren’t in such a strong position.
