Thank god for Atlus, which continues to give me reasons to use my 3DS. Lately I’ve been obsessively playing Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey Redux, a remake of the 2010 dungeon crawler that is kinda what would happen if you combined the sci-fi mystery Annihilation with a ton of demons. The game is a great pick-up…
Every year since 2013, I start a new file in a specific JRPG. I grind, I level up, I do side quests. I pour anywhere from 20-30 hours in, intent on seeing the credits. I get a little further every time, but it’s no use. Something always happens and I leave the game unfinished, dooming it to my backlog once more.

The 2009 Nintendo DS game Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey is getting a revamped version for the 3DS.
In the wake of Breath of the Wild turning out to be one of the greatest video games ever made, I have some bad news for your time and wallet: Persona 5 might be up there, too.
The Nintendo Switch is here and there’s a lot of games on the horizon. Here’s a list of all the games that have been announced for this year and when they are coming.
A new Shin Megami Tensei title will be coming to the Nintendo Switch. Development has only just begun, so there’s not much else to discuss.
The new RPG Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse has two lines of unlocalized Japanese dialogue thanks to an oversight that occurred because the QA team played the game too well.
