New SMT: Strange Journey Redux Trailer Features Fake Metroidvania Jack Bros. Game

Atlus has released a new, short preview trailer for Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey Redux, which launches in Japan in two weeks.

The trailer features a fake game reminiscent of Jack Bros., a Virtual Boy title released in 1995. Described as a “challenge to discover the mysteries of the Schwarzwelt,” “gameplay” shows Jack Frost and Pyro Jack traversing what appears to be a Metroidvania title with pixel art set in the Megami Tensei world.

That segment of the trailer ends with the statement that this Shin Megami Tensei: Deep Strange Journey is “a lie,” proceeding to show off the real upcoming game.

Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey Redux will be released for the Nintendo 3DS in Japan, on October 26, 2017. It will release in North America and Europe in early 2018.
