Summon Your Inner Demon With Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne

Summon Your Inner Demon With Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne

ATLUS may take the award for most wonderful surprise of the week by announcing last minute that the PS2 classic Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne will be available on the PlayStation Network today.

The company teased a new title on PlayStation 3 yesterday via Reddit, which was later confirmed (through an ESRB rating) to be the third main-entry in the Shin Megami Tensei series.

Nocturne was originally released in Japan way back in February of 2003. A year later a western release was announced, which included the updated Japanese version (allowing players to recruit the famous Devil May Cry protagonist Dante).

Those new to the SMT universe may want to try out a less intimidating title in the franchise as Nocturne is considered to be one of the hardest JRPG’s out there, mostly due to its increasingly difficult battles and high encounter rate. Unlike Shin Megami Tensei IV (the newest entry in the series) players are unable to save anywhere, making every move you make that much more crucial.

Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne releases later today exclusively on the PlayStation 3. For more on SMT, check out our review of Shin Megami Tensei IV.
