Atlus held a live stream earlier today to celebrate the announcement of Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne HD Remaster, and it featured 14 minutes of direct gameplay footage as the hosts played through a segment of the game leading up to the Matador boss battle.
Featuring the MC Chiaki Matsuzawa, comedians Nobuo (Penguins) and O’samurai-chan, as well as Shin Megami Tensei series producer Kazuyuki Yamai, the gameplay begins in the live stream archive below at the 1:04:40 mark.
At the end of the live stream, Yamai stated that next week’s issue of Weekly Famitsu magazine releasing on July 30th will feature Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne HD Remaster.
The game’s official Japanese website has been updated with a “Story & Character” page introducing the main cast involved alongside the main character, who became a demon after being involved in the “Tokyo Conception” catastrophe.
A “System” page has also been added, detailing the “Press Turn Battle” system which Atlus states Persona 5 inherited. The page also discusses other systems relevant to managing demons, such as negotiations and fusion.
