    Riding off the back of another upcoming Atlus remake for a DS game, comes the new 3DS Megami Tensei project. Titled Shin Megami Tensei: Deep Strange Journey, the game is a refined version of 2009's Strange Journey, and will be a "more easily accessible" version, with extra enhanced features. More demons, a new character, redone assets, and an extra ending are going to be the new additions coming to the remake. It's set for a release this Fall, for Japan.

    Ooooooh very nice! So this is the new SMT for 3ds eh? Played the ds version briefly and enjoyed it.

    Though I was really hopin for a new original story for the 3ds. Guess they are saving 5 for the Switch.

    This is my favourite one after Nocturne/Lucifer's Call.
    Doubt I'd play it again though, was hoping it was a true sequel.

    I assume you meant not on Switch? They are making an SMT game for the Switch, more then likely it will be 5. I'll get a Switch for that.

    Yeah... Sorry.. Watching videos while commenting is kinda a bad idea.

    It's a shame it's -not- on the switch as well as the 3DS, as Switch is kinda my current go to portable gaming.

    But yeah.. Can't wait for SMT 5 and the remake of SJ.

    I hope they remove the pirate treasures quest. I stopped playing during that part. it was the most frustrating part of the game.

    strange journey is fucking great but I dont particularly need to play it again. At the same time, I'm happy this title is just a remake cuz that gives me more hope better resources and more original writing is going into the Switch SMT game.

    Gotta say, I love how many SMT games the 3ds has. And Strange Journey was one of my favorites.

    And so it begins....the Capcom-ization of Atlus by Sega. (aka remaking, re-releasing virtually every game in a new platform)
