We already know that Shin Megami Tensei V – the next numbered entry in Atlus’ beloved Shin Megami Tensei series – is coming exclusively to Nintendo Switch, but we now also know that the third entry in the franchise is getting remastered for Nintendo's system.

Shin Megami Tensei III Nocturne HD Remaster is a remake of the game which launched 17 years ago as Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne on the PlayStation 2. It's a HD remake of the original and arrives on Switch in spring 2021 – the same year that we'll be getting the aforementioned Shin Megami Tensei V.

Shin Megami Tensei III Nocturne HD Remaster places you in the shoes of a Japanese high school student who is transformed into a half-demon after the world is ravaged by an apocalyptic event. Tokyo becomes a nightmarish "Vortex World" packed with demons and monsters, and the player character becomes wrapped up in a devilish scheme which will decide the fate of humanity. Turn-based combat is present as you might expect, and a demon recruitment system allows you to bring monsters over to your side and have them fight for you.

It has also been confirmed that Shin Megami Tensei V will receive a simultaneous global launch.
