"I feel that the production staff has come together considerably"
Shin Megami Tensei V has now entered "full-scale development", according to producer Kazuyuki Yamai. Despite the fact that the game was announced some time ago, the project hasn't hit its stride until very recently, as Yamai explains to 4Gamer:
This is definitely a "pocket monster"
Shin Megami Tensei is a big deal in Japan, and over the years has added more and more demon types to its ranks that you could call it a satanic version of Pokémon. There are so many demons in the series now - 345, to be exact - that Atlus decided to hold a vote to see which ones fans liked the most. Now...
More RPG goodness for your 3DS
In the early hours of this morning we brought you the news that Atlus was localising Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology for the Nintendo 3DS, with an "early 2018" release on the cards. The good tidings don't end there, however. We've now discovered that Atlus is also bringing Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond the
There's life in the old dog yet
If you thought that the 3DS was done and dusted now that the Switch is available, think again - Atlus has confirmed not one but two new RPG adventures for the veteran handheld. Etrian Mystery Dungeon 2 and Shin Megami Tensei: Deep Strange Journey are both fresh instalments in two of the company's most popular...
3DS title also in development
Atlus is bringing its popular Shin Megami Tensei series to the Nintendo Switch, it was revealed today. The game will be made using Unreal Engine 4, and the brief video shown off during the Switch presentation didn't show any gameplay as the title is still very early in production. The last game in the series was Shin...
Waiting for the End of the World
Whether you know it from its earliest Famicom days, the immensely popular PlayStation-bound Persona spinoffs, or crossover efforts like Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE, ATLUS' Shin Megami Tensei is one of gaming's most enduring and recognizable series, full of top-shelf JRPGs with deep combat systems and intriguing...
As many of you are no doubt aware, Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse is a day away from releasing in North America. The hotly anticipated RPG released in Japan months ago, and Atlus has been busy over the past year getting the game ready for Western audiences. In a rare oversight, though, it seems that the localization team accidentally left...
The end of the world as we know it
It's rather hard to believe, but Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse is only a week away from launching in North America. The hotly anticipated sequel(ish) to Shin Megami Tensei IV is filling an otherwise quiet period for the 3DS, while also giving RPG fans something to root for. In order to generate a little bit...
Even the Virtual Boy gets a mention
Shin Megami Tensei is a series familiar to DS and 3DS owners that keep a good eye on the output of Atlus, with Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse due in North America on 20th September. With various new entries and remasters / re-releases in recent years, it's an IP that's popped up a lot on these pages. Plenty of...
Also, a trailer showing off new demons
Many of you are no doubt big fans of Atlus' Shin Megami Tensei franchise and are eagerly anticipating the arrival of Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse. Something of an epilogue/retelling of Shin Megami Tensei IV, Apocalypse is shaping up to be an RPG to keep an eye out for this fall. Naturally, Atlus is keen to...
In like Flynn
While Atlus' booth at E3 this year was decked out from top to bottom in Persona 5's deep red regalia, tucked in between artwork of the Phantom Thieves and attendees swarming for swag was a single splash of neon green, representing a hidden gem for 3DS gamers: Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse. This upcoming RPG is a sequel of sorts to...
Gets a name change in its localisation
It wasn't so long ago that Shin Megami Tensei IV: Final arrived on 3DS in Japan, and now Atlus has confirmed some pleasing news - it's coming to the Americas this Summer as Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse. Tying into events from Shin Megami Tensei IV, though you don't necessarily have to play that one first,...
Still a bit of a head scratcher
Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem is a fascinating upcoming release that aims to cross over both of the popular franchises, though it does appear to be more Shin Megami Tensei than it does Fire Emblem. The game has been confirmed to be coming west, though there's still barely any information surrounding the...
Hopefully, we'll get a release date soon
About a week ago, Atlus teased an announcement of a new game on the main page for Shin Megami Tensei IV and promised to make the big reveal once it was spread around sufficiently on Twitter. Naturally, the internet overcame this challenge quickly and the announcement was revealed to be Shin Megami Tensei IV:...
Killing gods likely to be prominent
A little earlier today we shared a teaser from Atlus around a new announcement that would be shared if social media targets were hit. The fans responded with 15,000 tweets and Shin Megami Tensei IV: Final has been revealed. Like its predecessor this one is coming to 3DS, and is described by Famitsu as an entirely...
New game on the horizon?
The Japanese website for Shin Megami Tensei IV has been recently updated with a very curious image of a stone wall accompanied by some text which apparently says something to the effect that in 15,000 tweets a disaster will occur. This could be anything related to the series, but do keep in mind that a representative from...
Music is my radar
Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem - AKA Genei Ibun Roku #FE - was shown off in a brief and almost incomprehensible video during Nintendo's E3 Digital Event which left fans none the wiser as to what kind of experience this crossover will provide. Thankfully, GameSpot has been talking to the team behind the game to get a better idea...
Dial D for Demons
The original Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor - a game in the grand tradition of titles cleverly acronym'd to reference Nintendo's dual-screened handheld - represented a new take on Atlus' long-running Shin Megami Tensei games, combining the series' modern setting and demon-taming mechanics with tactical, strategy-RPG gameplay...
Toi8 Tackles New Crossover
World renowned character designer, toi8, takes to Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem's Official Blog to share a little more about himself. We all know and love him for his work on hack//The Movie and Chain Chronicle movie, but did you know that working for Nintendo has been a huge dream of his? "As part of the generation...
Supposedly "nearly doubles" length of original
Like the DS before it the 3DS is becoming a terrific portable for RPG games, with Atlus delivering some of the very best examples. The publisher and developer has been busy in recent times yet has, nevertheless, announced another exclusive title for the portable — Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2...
Online rumblings seem to suggest so, but have your pinch of salt ready
Remember Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem? The Wii U crossover was announced back in January 2013 to great fanfare from followers of both franchises, but since then information on the title has been scarce. At E3 this year Nintendo producer Hitoshi Yamagami confirmed that the...
Q&A held during Atlus event
Developers of Shin Megami Tensei IV fielded questions from the curious during the Atlus Live 2 Days extravaganza in Japan this weekend, and the folks over at Siliconera were able to glean information on the upcoming title from their answers.
