Nintendo shared a couple of major announcements for hardcore JRPG fans in the premiere Nintendo Direct Mini: Partner Showcase last month. After years of silence, Atlus finally shared an updated look at the highly anticipated Shin Megami Tensei V, assuring fans that it would be arriving globally in 2021 with a stylish new trailer showing off the potential protagonist. On top of that, though, it was revealed that the most iconic game in the Shin Megami Tensei mainline series is getting a surprising re-release in the form of Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne HD Remaster. For Japanese fans, the HD remaster is set to drop later this year on October 29. Western fans, though, will have to wait until spring 2021. Regardless of which camp you’re in, though, the bevy of new screenshots that Atlus just shared for the remaster is sure to be a mouth-watering treat.
In the gallery below, eagle-eyed Shin Megami Tensei fans might notice a few images of Raidou Kuzunoha the XIV, the protagonist of Shin Megami Tensei spin-off series Devil Summoner. While the original version of this game included Dante from the Devil May Cry series as a recruitable ally and significant story character. This HD remaster is a re-release of the Japan-exclusive Maniax Chronicle edition of the game, though, which swaps Raidou Kuzunoha the XIV into that role.
Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne HD Remaster launches for Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 in Japan on October 29, with the western release arriving spring 2021.
