Calling all United Nations soldiers, a spatial distortion is expected to appear in Antarctica on May 15 when Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey Redux releases for Nintendo 3DS! Featuring additional story content, new illustrations by Masayuki Doi, and a brand-new character, Alex, Strange Journey Redux is an ATLUS JRPG adventure fans of the series won't want to miss!

The Story
A spatial distortion full of demons appeared in Antarctica, threatening to engulf the Earth in Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey. The United Nations responded by tasking a team of highly advanced specialists with piercing the anomaly and figuring out how to stop it from the source. Well, get ready to don your Demonica once again in this new, expanded port. Expect new story content, additional endings, a new dungeon to explore, and more in the return of this sci-fi tinged SMT adventure.

Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey Redux features:
  • A Stranger Journey Back - In Strange Journey Redux, you play as a brave United Nations soldier investigating a spatial anomaly called the Schwarzwelt--a dome of dark energy that threatens to consume the world. Inside, you'll find it home to a nightmare mirror of our own Earth, populated with demons dying to meet you. The game touts brand-new illustrations by Masayuki Doi, updated visuals, UI tweaks, and more to make this journey back into the Schwarzwelt ... even stranger.
  • Additional Story Content and a Brand-new Character - You won't be retreading the same nightmarish path as before because a brand-new character named Alex will play a major role in how the story unfolds. Much about her is a mystery, but there is one thing you know for sure: she's got a bone to pick with you. Joining her are new demons you might recognize from other SMT entries, new endings, and a new dungeon to discover.

Are you sure about the launch date? Amazon says it will be March 31st.

By the way, it can be a good game, I will probably give it a try. I always wanted to give a shot to SMT and Persona game series, but I'm not sure with which game I should start (mostly because of the story being parted. Which game "begins" the story?).

Yes this is a copy paste press release from ATLUS, so unless both the EU and USA offices have the dates wrong, then this is 100% correct.

Also this is my second favourite SMT game (Lucifer/Nocturne is first) and I am excited to play this again, BUT, I wish it was on Switch! :switch:

Don't start with this game.


BTW, this announcement means Nintendo doesnt give a fuck about the 3DS anymore. They would have announced it in the Direct otherwise.

If you like more anime and visual novels, then start with Persona 5 (PS3/PS4).
If you like more post-apocalyptic locations, mythology and religion, then start with Shin Megami Tensei IV (3DS).


Never happening.

I've already played all the Persona series, fantastic games, I'll check out the 3DS ones now though.

If we where to go by where the story starts, you would need to read the books.
The first game in the series would be megami tensei for the nes.

You can play any Shin Megami Tensei game in any order since they're very self-contained. No need to worry about continuity, even with Shin Megami Tensei IV Final, which is more of another ending route to SMT4 rather than a sequel.

Pick one which looks cool and jump in.
