    Awesome, I loved Strange Journey and am also a fan of the MegaTen franchise in general, I'm definitely excited for this.

    It's getting both Soul Hackers and SMT4? Looks like my 3DS will be getting some love once these come over to the U.S.

    Wait, main entry in a long running series, on a handheld for the first release? Holy mother of bad ideas, Batman!

    Ah well. I don't think any of the games in the main series have made it out of Japan anyways (besides Shin Megami Tensei 3: Nocturne). We pretty much just get the Persona games, and whatever else they may throw out there (like Devil Survivor 1 and 2 on the DS).

    ...I need to change my pants. Devil Survivor, Soul Hackers, now this too? a real, solid numbered SMT, and on the 3DS too. i hope they up the difficulty more, and i hope Nintendo does not gimp the story WHATSOEVER. I want a super epic clash of the gods, and I want YHWH in there too.

    ( TuT)


    I think the devs acknowledge Strange Journey as an unofficially numbered SMT, but since they've officially numbered this upcoming one, I guess SJ just became SMT3.5, unofficially.

    Looking at Strange Journey, Devil Survivor 1 and 2, and the Demikids games (which were pretty...aggressive, despite what the title may suggest), I doubt Nintendo'll do anything to the story. Atlus wouldn't let them, even if they wanted to.

    Awesome.

    I just started getting into the SMT series myself, but i love Devil Survivor 1/2/Overclocked , Strange Journey, and Persona 3. Was already hyped for Persona 4 Golden on Vita and Persona 4 Arena for PS3.

    Yeah, but Strange Journey felt like they were cutting it close. YHWH is just another fancy word for Jehovah/Yahweh, and that's one count already. If the sects and the Jews even pick up on this, they'd lobby it to death, probably. and even then Jehovah is pretty much the Judo-Christian God, so pretty much the entire Christian world can lobby against this "blasphemy" if they knew of it.

    Then there's that Tyrant Mara and that big pussy demon guy (seriously, that guy even has a cli-- a... a nub!), i wonder how they'd convince Nintendo to let those through... i mean, even a kid would know what they are.

    I've never played the main series of this...I guess this could be my chance to try them.

    Not a huge fan of the series, but good news nonetheless. I'm still waiting for news on that Persona 3DS title though.

    Me neither. If there's literally one series that I find extremely passable and won't regret not playing, it's SMT. Hell, I probably care less about SMT than I do for Minecraft.

    The only good side of this that I find, is that more Japanese developers are opening up to the western world, which would mean less region exclusives, thank god.

    I'm more hyped for the Persona one, but this is also good.

    I never played this series at all. You all seem pretty chuffed it is coming to 3DS though which must be good.

    Anyone want to hype this for me a bit? ie what is it about? and what genre? and will it matter if I havent played the other games in the series?

    Glad I got a 3DS, get to try these new titles out!
