@TheFrenchiestFry The SMT IV/Fire Emblem Awakening cross-promotion where they gave you $30 in eshop credit for registering both games was insane. I've never seen Nintendo push a third-party property that hard.

@Ralizah That's actually amazing. I had no idea that promotion was a thing but that's seriously awesome

Honestly Nintendo should do something similar for Hyrule Warriors where you could register it and BotW and get like 30 ish for the Switch eShop. They should do this more often

@TheFrenchiestFry I think it worked better for FE Awakening and SMT IV because those two games launched within months of each-other (in North America, at least). Still funny to think the end-result of that cross-promotional energy was some weird idol game, lol.

I feel like Nintendo in general was a lot more generous when they weren't on top of the world, so to speak. There was also that amazing Mario Kart 8 promotion on Wii U where, if you registered that game within three months or so of launch, Nintendo would just give you a choice of ten or so big, first-party releases to download for free. I chose New Super Mario Bros. U.

Can't believe I almost forgot to talk about this but today is the 24th anniversary of the Persona series

I honestly owe a lot to this particular series for even getting me into MegaTen and even JRPGs as a whole. It really helped me grow a greater appreciation for the genre

@TheFrenchiestFry it is? I feel bad now, because of the virtual boy article released today all I was thinking about was Jack Bros's 25th anniversary on the 29th.

@GilbertXI Yup

It's been 24 years since Megami Ibonroku Persona released in Japan for the PlayStation.

@TheFrenchiestFry It definetely is one of the most influential jrpg series of all time, even if it overshadows SMT, which is criminal. I like them both equally, and I pay my respects to persona.

I expect more Shin Megami Tensei III at the Tokyo Game Show, maybe some short gameplay exposure of Shin Megami Tensei V, but wouldn't count on it. Livestream can be found here:

You can take me out of the 90s, but not the 90s out of me.

@Slowdive it seems they will be pushing SMT III, anything on V would be great but I’m not expecting it.

@GilbertXI Been following the livestream, so far nothing Shin Megami Tensei outside of the original trailer of the remaster. There will be (three) subsequent livestreams over the following days.

Yeah it looks like the spotlight's completely on SMTIII HD

At least a tease of SMTV gameplay would be great but at this point I think Atlus' TGS presence is focused on the immediate future releases. Nothing about SMTV or Persona spinoffs/P6

Woah woah woah, what's with the DMC SMT crossover thing? Oh wait it's just an event in DMC V, got my hopes up there for a second.

Just Persona? SMT concerts are unbelievable with that guitarist!

@Alex90 The press release did say "...and more" so there is still a chance SMT will make an appearance

Honestly I don't expect Atlus to be represented with just Persona music

Today I finally noticed that when looking around in the Stray Sheep Bar in Catherine Full Body there are actually plushies of Koromaru, Teddie and Morgana in the background

IT'S ALL CONNECTED.

I always thought Demi-fiend's pose in this artwork was super funny for some reason
He looks like he's either dancing at a strip club or taking a really long beauty shower
