Popular Music Poll

In commemoration of the 25th Anniversary of the Shin Megami Tensei series, a popular music poll is being held. Votes can be cast for any track released on an official soundtrack from the following games:

  • Shin Megami Tensei
  • Shin Megami Tensei II
  • Shin Megami Tensei: Nine
  • Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne
  • Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne Maniax
  • Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey
  • Shin Megami Tensei IV
  • Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse

Shin Megami Tensei if… is not included in the voting, since it lacks an official soundtrack release.

Votes can be cast here between July 9th and July 23rd. Samples for each eligible track are also provided. A twitter account is required to vote, and there is no restriction on the number of votes that a person can cast.

This is similar to a poll that Atlus held for the Etrian Odyssey series music, celebrating its 10th anniversary.

Live Stream

Results for the voting will be announced during a live stream to be held on August 19, 2017 at 9:00 PM JST (5:00 AM PDT / 8:00 AM EDT). Additionally, the live stream will introduce new music recorded for Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey Redux.

Commemorative Alcohol Set

To commemorate the 25th anniversary of the series, anime goods specialist store Broccoli has announced an alcohol set.

The commemorative alcohol set will be a set of three types of alcohol with devil, angel and human motifs.

    Inugami pillow and Decarabia floor mat are things I need in my life…also now I just want a Sims-esque MegaTen game where I can decorate my fake base with cool stuff like that.

  • Touma

    That’s all nice but why isn’t Tamaki in the picture instead of the Male MC! that annoys me more than it should

    • Strain42

      I’m with you. She’s the canonical MC. It’d be like if they did a Persona concert where they showed Yu, Joker, and the FeMC from P3P.

  • Tizawoot

    Correction: it’s Inugami not Inguami
