Atlus Brings Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey Stateside

Illustration for article titled Atlus Brings Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey Stateside

Atlus, publishing a Shin Megami Tensei game in North America? I know, I was pretty shocked too to learn that Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey, the company's first-person science fiction RPG, was being localized for a stateside Nintendo DS release.

The latest in the SMT series, already released in Japan to favorable reviews—the highest Famitsu-rated Shin Megami Tensei entry yet, according to Atlus—will come to the DS in North America next spring, bringing with it the mind-scrambling box art you see above. Go on, admire it.

Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey's science-fiction flavored storyline tasks the player with unraveling the mystery of a "growing, black void" that has appeared at Earth's southern pole. The SMT standard role-playing and demon managing rules apply, with Atlus saying that Strange Journey follows in the tradition of Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne.

God, that box art is terrible. They really should've at least come up with a logo that looks a bit less...badly photoshopped.

No opinion whatsoever on the actual game though (it's a DS RPG, so I'm just going to shut up), just think the box art is really ugly. #shinmegamitenseistrangejourney
