Atlus' role-playing series is in development for Sony's next-generation console; details yet to come.
Ever since the Megami Tensei series made its debut on the Famicom (Japanese NES) in 1987, the franchise has been Atlus' most popular product, aside from the Print Club sticker machines that died out in the 1990s. It's no surprise that the company would capitalize on the franchise's notoriety by kicking off its next-generation development with a familiar face.
According to the latest issue of Famitsu, Atlus has announced it is currently developing a new Shin Megami Tensei game for Sony's PlayStation 3. No details have been disclosed, but the company may release some additional information during the Tokyo Game Show next week.
The latest Shin Megami game announced by Atlus is a series spin-off for the PlayStation 2, titled Devil Summoner: Kuzunoha Raidou. No release date has been announced for the game yet.
Does this mean it will be for Vita? If so, that would be awesome. But no, for PS3 or 4? Damn no, can't afford that!
Well... we have: Nocturne, Devil Summoner, Digital Devil Saga, Persona.. and that Catherine thing too.. So.. I guess we'll have another Big One soon... Can't Wait!
mmmm it will be the 1st on in ps3 it will be great they will work hard for it cuz they know i'll buy it then play it.lol
360 owners might as well buy a Sony console if they wanna play any of the persona or SMT games. Atlus is a hardcore japanese publisher and it means that they support japanes products and market, the president of the company might as well commit harakiri than import their #1 franchise to a western console. And to add insult to us westeners they give crappy subpar imports to 360, not that i care cause i only buy sony and nintendo products.
@saqibislam because Atlus is a company that look at japan market and in Japan few hundred of xbox aren't so interesting.
nocturne, as of right now dont know how much it cost, but i know last year i bought a used one for 45 dollars and still have it. a remake of nocturne no but a new story in the nocturne series would be nice. it be awesome if they made persona 5 and introduce a new battle system.
i will go for a remake of NOCTURNE for the PS3 because i couldn't get it on the ps2... but persona 5 sounds awesome
I would be soooo freaking happy if they made it Persona 5. Persona 3 and 4 are awesome!!! I loved them, just imagine a Persona 5!!!
I would be happy wioth either Persona 5, Devil Survivor adaption for the PS3 (with 3D graphics!), or something completely new. Either way, I am stoked.
id love to see anther smt, been like 3 personas in the last 3 years. also like to see the first devil summoners come out. *sigh* just a matter of time.
Both Nocturne and Persona are equaly awesome in different ways. Now I start thinking about buying a PS3. hehehhe
Cool! I'm already hyped up for this. I hope it's ether a Persona edition or similar like Devil Survivor or Nocturne. I like the normal and mundane met sudden unpredictable doomsday in Japan feel slightly better than the alternate reality or post-apocolipse themes.
Nocturne is SMT proper, as in it is the third actual SMT game. Nocturne is really the special edition that was released in Japan with the added content.
Wow, been awhile since we heard anything about this. If we don't hear anything soon I'm going to consider it vaporware.
Persona 5 maybe??? either way it will be something to look forward too (i just hope it won't be japan only)
I love the Shin Megami Tensei series! I don't care if it's persona 5 or one of the others, they just about all rock especially Nocturne. Anyway, I truly hope this does see a North American release, but if not I would probably buy the Japanese version. Hoo better keep practicing Japanese! lol maybe by release time I will have improved somewhat I hope.
Hope it is Persona 5, Persona 3 was tight and im looking forward towards Persona 4. Next Gen Persona oh yeah
Persona 4 was recently announced for PS2. I'm willing to bet this was the same game originally slated for PS3. If Japan gets this game sometime this year, North America may not see it til 2009.
