Shin Megami Tensei: Deep Strange Journey Announced

A remake of Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey for the Nintendo 3DS has been announced as Shin Megami Tensei: Deep Strange Journey.

The remake of the original DS RPG, released on October 8, 2009, will be a more refined version of the game with additional elements such as cutscenes, an opening animation, voice acting, and more. Gameplay refinements will include the ability to save at any time while exploring a dungeon.

There will be a new character called Alex (voiced by Megumi Han), who is tied to the game’s new ending path.

This was shown during the Atlus Announcement 2017 (Spring) live stream.


  • Director: Eiji Ishida
  • New Demon Design: Masayuki Doi
  • Sound Composers: Shoji Meguro, Toshiki Konishi

The official website for the game has been opened.

More details for the game will be revealed in the March 30, 2017 edition of Weekly Famitsu magazine.

This game was originally teased in January, alongside the announcement of the “SMT HD Project.”

Shin Megami Tensei: Deep Strange Journey is set to be released in Japan for the Nintendo 3DS in Fall 2017.

    I never got around to playing strange journey, but I hear the story is good enough to have been considered for a mainline numbered entry

    • Ludovic Castro

      The story is better than the ones from SMT IV and IV Apocalypse in my opinion. Strange Journey is an amazing game.

    • Raziel Barkrai

      It originally was supposed to be, but Atlus thought that the setting was too different from the mainline games.

  • YES.
