The Shin Megami Tensei series is perhaps the next new big thing for JRPGs in America. Almost each installment released stateside has garnered critical success ever since they began to be released at frequent rate a few years ago with Shin Megami Tensei III.
A new game in the series with the most spinoffs ever (Digital Devil Saga and Persona, to name a few) is being released in America soon. I wonder how well this one will fare? It sounds pretty cool…
Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey is reportedly a first person-perspective RPG with science fiction elements. You are one of many elite soldiers sent by earth to enter the mysterious “Schwarzvelt”, a strange black hole (literally, a hole) that appeared over the Antarctic. Your mission is to stop the supernatural beings that infest the Schwarzvelt before they use it to enter the earth and cause a lot of trouble…probably. They never get the demons’ side of the story for these things!
Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey is set for a North American release on March 10, 2010.
