Shin Megami Tensei: Deep Strange Journey & Etrian Mystery Dungeon 2 for 3DS

Shin Megami Tensei: Deep Strange Journey announced for 3DS -- Refined Shin Megami Tensei title due out this fall.

Atlus has announced Shin Megami Tensei: Deep Strange Journey for 3DS. It is due out this fall in Japan.

First teased in January, Shin Megami Tensei: Deep Strange Journey is an easier to play, refined version of the 2009-released DS title Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey with various additional elements.

Here’s what we know so far:

Environmental destruction and ethnic conflict… on a future earth where various problems still haven’t been solved, it suddenly appeared.

Schwarzwelt, the ruined land that appeared in the Antarctic, continued to expand while swallowing everything on the earth into nonexistence. This appears to be how the history of mankind will meet its end…

Hoping for humanity’s survival, a Strike Team is sent to this mysterious land. However, the things they witness… will reveal the terrible truth of Schwarzwelt.

New Character: Alex (voiced by Megumi Han)

A mysterious girl who suddenly attacks the protagonist during exploration of Schwarzwelt. What is her goal in targeting the life of the protagonist with such open hostility?

Voice Actors

Protagonist (voiced by Jun Hirose)
Gore (voiced by Unsho Ishizuka)
Jimenez (voiced by Takahiro Sakurai)
Zelenin (voiced by Maaya Sakamoto)


Main Points

- A must-see for every Shin Megami Tensei fan! It’s that popular title with new elements added and various elements brushed up for 3DS.

- Enjoy a dramatic story with new from-the-chest-up illustrations and full voice overs.

- About 350 demons will appear. A “DEEPer” demon experience.

- A new character named Alex will appear, as well as a new ending route.
Further details will be shared in the March 30-due issue of Weekly Famitsu.


Etrian Mystery Dungeon 2 announced for 3DS -- A followup to the Spike Chunsoft collaboration dungeon RPG.

Atlus and Spike Chunsoft have announced Etrian Mystery Dungeon 2 for 3DS. It will launch in Japan on August 31 for 6,480 yen.

First-print copies will include a two-disc “User’s Best Album” containing player favorite songs from across the Etrian Odyssey series. Users can vote for which tracks they want to be included here until April 9. The jacket that houses the CDs is a digipak illustrated by Yuuji Himukai.

An Etrian Odyssey 10th Anniversary Box limited edition will cost 9,800 yen and include a copy of the game, special-make box, and 200-page Character Art Works book featuring character illustrations from across the Etrian Odyssey series’ numbered titles.

Here’s an overview of the story:

At the bottom of the Yggdrasil Tree there is said to be an entrance to the “Land of the Gods”—.

One day, you, an adventurer who visited the lakeside town that looks out on this legendary Yggdrasil Tree, meet a mysterious girl.

“I want to go to the base of the Yggdrasil Tree no matter what it takes.”

Just who is this girl? Why does she want to go to the Yggdrasil Tree? Frequently clear “mystery dungeons” and, together with the girl, head for the distant Yggdrasil Tree!
In addition to the classes from the previous game (Landsknecht, Protector, Runemaster, Medic, Gunner, Wanderer, Ninja, Dancer, Sovereign, and Hexer), the Buccaneer, Alchemist, Kenkaku, Monk, and Farmer classes have also been added.

In related news, Atlus will host an Etrian Odyssey 10th anniversary commemoration broadcast on Niconico on May 20 at 19:30 JST. Details about the broadcast will be announced at a later date.
