Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond the Myth, Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology and Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey Redux Coming to the West

June 07th, 2017 | Category: Uncategorized

The next entry in the Etrian Odyssey series, along with the enhanced ports of the DS classics Radiant Historia and Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey are all coming to the Americas, Atlus confirmed today.

Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond the Myth will be the first of the trio of 3DS RPGs to arrive in the West, launching this fall. Like previous Etrian adventures, players will create parties and attempt to manually chart their way through a giant labyrinth filled with treasure, traps and dangerous F.O.E.s. The game introduces 10 new classes, each with their own skill tree and set of class promotions.

Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology is an updated retelling of the story of Stocke, the time-travelling special operative for the nation of Alistel. In addition to updating the character art, adding voiced dialog and including five new music tracks, there will be a new timeline to explore and a new character named Nemesia. Perfect Chronology launches in early 2018.

Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey Redux builds upon the original 2010 release by adding new story content, a new character and a new dungeon. Like Radiant Historia, it will be out in early 2018.

All three games will be priced at $39.99 each. Etrian Odyssey V and Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology will feature English dubs, while Strange Journey Redux will retain the original Japanese voices.

The 2011 DS RPG Radiant Historia developed a cult following thanks to an intriguing time-travelling storyline and refreshingly competent protagonist. Now, it appears that Atlus is planning to do something with the IP once again.

The studio recently launched a new teaser site, radianthistoria.jp, that contains the text “In the near future, a history once told will unfold again. And an unknown path will come to be known.”

Atlus PR Manager Shuts Down Rumors of Yakuza 0 and Persona 5 PC and Switch Ports

January 03rd, 2017 | Category: Uncategorized

Rumors of possible PC and Switch ports of Yakuza 0 and Persona 5 started to surface after box art for the games appeared without PlayStation-exclusive branding, but they were quickly squashed after Atlus USA public relations manager John Hardin reconfirmed the games would only be appearing on Sony’s consoles.

The Persona series has appeared on a Nintendo console before. The canon spin-off Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth came out for the 3DS back in 2014.

Even the Yakuza series, which was only rumored to come to PC, saw a remastered port of the first two games launch on the Wii U in 2013.

Atlus Apologizes for Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalpyse Localization Mistake

September 20th, 2016 | Category: Uncategorized

smt-iv-apocalypse

Atlus issued an official apology after it was discovered that a couple of lines of dialog were left untranslated in the final release of Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse.

The lines are found during a boss battle near the end of the game and are only triggered under specific conditions.

“…the errant Japanese text only shows up if you get to a point where the boss gives you a dialogue option WHILE your partner is KO’d,” Atlus explained. “Our testers, who have been with the company for quite awhile, and who are well-versed in all things SMT (I think a few of them also were QA for the original SMTIV) were so good, they never ran into the situation of having an unconscious partner during the fight, and henceforth the dialogue in question.”

The company is looking into fixing the mistake, but they are unable to confirm any solid plans.

Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse is out today in stores and in the 3DS eShop.
