Shin Megami Tensei: A Strange Journey Announced for US Release

Atlus announced today the release of Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey, a first person science fiction RPG for the Nintendo DS, on Spring 2010. Strange Journey is a startingly original entry in the award-winning Shin Megami Tensei universe. The player will takes the heralded RPG franchise to exciting new frontiers.

In the near future, a mysterious, growing, black void appears at the Earth’s southern pole. Unable to determine its cause and powerless to stop its deadly encroachment, humanity sends an elite team of explorers into the heart of the phenomenon, just as Strange Journey’s look and feel represent a return to the heart of Shin Megami Tensei, bringing to mind the all-time classic Nocturne™. With over 300 demons to bribe, coerce, and negotiate with to gain assistance in battle, Strange Journey is every bit the deep, rewarding RPG experience fans have come to expect from the SMT franchise, yet delivered with a fresh new sci-fi story that taps into mature themes of morality and introspection.

Nice! Another Shin Megami Tensei game! Check back with us for our impression of this game really soon.
