Mitsuru Hirata Director Interview

How did you get the opportunity to develop a full remake of the game?

Because of everyone’s support over a long period of time, Atlus as a company began to channel the energy into wanting to publish this title, because of the world and experiences RPGs can offer. So, we kept that in mind while developing this title in order to stay true to this impression. We are revisiting the game and improving it overall.

What kind of story is the Sub-History?

The third history that is neither the Standard History or the Alternate History is the Sub-History. The Sub-History is not just a single parallel world—the treatment of characters and timeline interpretation, how the Sub-History was born, each of these is different from the Standard History and Alternate History.
