    It seems that Atlus has let some information accidentally slip, on their American site. The company had a picture on their site noting that they have three upcoming titles planned for release up until 2018. These links, at the time of writing, go to test pages called "gamename-test-qwerty" which denote the following games for localizations:

    Etrian Odyssey V will be releasing in North America sometime in fall 2017 for the 3DS, under the name Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond the Myth.

    Shin Megami Tensei: Deep Strange Journey will be coming west in 2018 as Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey Redux.

    Lastly, Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology will be the only one not getting a name change, and will arrive in North America early 2018.

    It should be noted that these games were only leaked for a North American release. There is no word on any European versions at this time.

    Going to get that SMT: Strange Journey BEST GAME EVER™, even if it is the same shit I already played on DS with some additional content.
    I gotta do the endings I didn't do before.
    Oh hell, I could play SMT:SJ all day, Sector Antlia OST already playing in the back of my head, ready for war!!!

    I don't know, these are no Visual Novel or other really niche(?) genre. (well, I think Steam proves VN are not niche anymore)
    "Weebs" normally go for games based on anime at least.
    Regarding SMT, I would say that any fan of good gameplay should rejoice.
    Actually, I don't know why the hell would someone bring out the "weeb" card for these, they are no Dokidoki Majo Shinpan or something.

    Meh... Insecure people and their imaginary tribal self groupping, trying to put "us" and "them" tag, trying to sell to themselves there is an "us", a concept they can't really buy because inside they still know they are alone in the world, this fabricated "us" they try to belong to does not exist, but well... the make believe seems to help with the insecurities /s. (actually not)

    There is also this thing called ignorance, honest people just accept it, insecure people try to hide it and make it pass as something else.

    All of which only means you (as 1 person, you only, there is no "us") don't like it, and that on its own would be completely ok.
    But then again you go with your insecurities and try to tag people to an "us" and a "them", so you must not like it because it is for "weebs" (a fallacy, but it helps you fabricate a "them" so there is an "us" also) and they are not part of the superior "us" you belong to (fabrication, there is no "us", you are alone)... again, if that helps with your insecurities, whatever floats your boat...

    It's quite easy to figure out going back for the main story quest, those extra onea are tricky. But it's awesome

    In your closet, watching you clop
    Finally some extra stuff to look forward to for me again.
    So 4 games on the list total to look out for on the 3ds.

    TBH, though I think in general Radiant Historia is a great game (I really like the battle system and how you can manipulate turn ordering and pile up several turns in a row with some abilities to your benefit to pull out group coordinated attacks profiting of spatial repositioning of enemies), there were some parts where I honestly find it a little like too much like a chore.
    I remember being stuck somewhere for a little time, and perhaps it is at the same spot.

    The part where you nees to make Rosche join, fix his gauntlet was a bit tricky. But whenever I got stuck.I did some side missions and find answer.for.the troubling stuff :-)

    well duh, two of those games already have large chunks of their content translated and translating is easily the most expensive part of releasing stuff.

    That still doesn't Tales of Destiny Director's Cut grant a western release, as many games have proven before.
