Earlier today, Atlus announced that they would be bringing Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey to the United States. Originally released exclusively in Japan for the DS, the developer plans on releasing the title in the United States in spring 2010, more specifically on March 10. The title will be a direct translation on the DS.
The game’s official website, which is currently still under construction, gives details on the Shin Megami Tensei series, the storyline in Strange Journey, as well as screenshots of the DS title. The stills show the game, a first-person role-playing game, in action, and portray different characters and stats screens. Aside from that, the usual “share” and “sign-up” options are available on the site.
Considering the game received favorable reviews in Japan, it seems that the game will likely be a winner once it makes its way to the United States. Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu awarded the game 36 out of 40, praising Strange Journey’s gameplay and fun factor. Also mentioned was the fact that the game was accessible by both series veterans and newcomers alike.
RPG aficionados and Shin Megami Tensei fans can look forward to the coming spring season when the game makes its way to the States. At the moment, nothing has been mentioned in terms of a release outside of the US. The game’s site is still being worked on, and new details are more than likely to arise as time goes on. Hopefully Atlus keeps fans updated at a steady rate. We’ll keep you posted here on GamerSyndrome with any new updates.
