Atlus publishing a Shin Megami Tensei game in North America? I know, I was pretty shocked too to learn that Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey, the company's first-person science-fiction RPG, was being localised for a Stateside Nintendo DS release.
The latest in the SMT series, already released in Japan to favourable reviews — the highest Famitsu-rated Shin Megami Tensei entry yet, according to Atlus — will come to the DS in North America early next year, bringing with it the mind-scrambling box art you see above. Go on, admire it.
Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey's science-fiction flavoured storyline tasks the player with unravelling the mystery of a "growing, black void" that has appeared at Earth's southern pole. The SMT standard role-playing and demon managing rules apply, with Atlus saying that Strange Journey follows in the tradition of Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne.
The game's website is now live, offering more information should you want it.
