Shin Megami Tensei Series’ 25th Anniversary

Shin Megami Tensei IV Final Producer Yamai: The Shin Megami Tensei series will celebrate its next milestone towards future developments next year. I hope to be able to share “something” with everyone next year.

In January 2016, Yamai teased a long and difficult journey, intensely developing a game that they hope will surprise fans.

Shin Megami Tensei was originally released in Japan on the SNES, on October 30, 1992.

    “long and difficult journey” strange journey remake/sequel confirmed lmao

  • An HD compilation of X amount of games? Maybe, maybe not. But it would be awesome (and make sense).

  • Holowknite

    • psynumb .

      I don’t want to buy the switch for a single game like I did with the Wii U and TMS.

      • Holowknite

        mate smt 4 was on the 3ds, the next main line game will be on the switch or the 3ds

      • Viktor Hällerståhl

        Luckily there’s other games on the system as well!

  • Strain42

    There’s so much possibility, and I’d certainly love to see some new stuff, but what I’d really love to see is if they remade the 3 classics in graphics and gameplay style of 4 (tweaked to keep their own originality, of course)

  • Grumpy Drizzle

    About time 1 & 2 got proper remakes. Now would be the perfect time.


    Smt 5 or Nocturne remake/remaster on current gen


    SMT 5 or a nocturne remaster

  • Vallen
