Shin Megami Tensei Thread

I wonder what ATLUS has in store for the SMT series. We have SMT 4, Break Record, and SMT x FE in the upcoming future.

I'm thinking that they'll remake one of the older SMT games using the 3DS Etrian Odyssey engine. Either the first two SMT games, or Strange Journey.

They also have the SMT 4 engine to work with, so expect some 3DS original spin-offs in the future (like DDS after Nocturne). ATLUS is known for pumping out a lot of sequels once they have an engine and assets to work with. Strange Journey probably wouldn't have happened if it wasn't for the Etrian Odyssey engine it was made with, for example.

Persona 3 may be rereleased for a third time since there's movies. It would probably be for the Vita, though it wouldn't surprise me if an updated version of P3P arrived on the 3DS.

Devil Survivor 3 is just as inevitable as Persona 5. In fact, I am absolutely certain that we'll get DeSu3 before P5. I'm expecting an announcement sometime this year, or next year at the latest. It'll be for the 3DS and will have a lot more content than past DeSu games, but the graphics will still be just as lazy.

So 1991
Isn't there still an unspecified persona game still announced for 3DS? Perhaps that might use the SMT 4 engine. I just hope it doesn't end up being a remake of Persona 3, all the rereleases are wearing a bit thin and we already got 3 different Persona 3 releases in the west.

Also I am a bit surprised Devil Survivor is apprently doing so well. The first game seemed to be ignored when it came out. (in the U.S. anyway, it probably did well in Japan)

Hopeful for Gen 8
The Persona games are generally on Sony platforms.
Yeah but at E3 2010 Persona was listed as a upcoming game for 3DS. However it might off just been a placeholder for Soul Hackers I suppose. Maybe E3 made a mistake and put it as Persona.

On an unrelated note, your signature is horrifying XD

....Actually, I think that the thing in her sig is one of the Personae from Persona 2: EP. .....I don't remember which.... one of the Death Arcana. That's all I can remember about it.

You're completely off

It's from the movie Rebuild of Evangelion 1.01/1.11: You Are (Not) Alone

Yay for useless knowledge I have

It's because it got a low print run and then, not long after, the 3DS port came out.

The game's out and plot spoilers are starting to pop up. We finally know who Lucifer's pretending to be this time.

Hikaru means "light", and it's a gender-neutral Japanese name. Lucifer is always associated with light (shining one, morning star, etc.)

It's a lot more clever than Louisa Ferre.

I also love how the random schoolgirl turned out to be one of the final bosses. It's like a big **** you to Persona.

I had a feeling it would be this person. Just seemed too normal to me when it was revealed.

Wow has it been awhile since I've posted in this thread. TBH, I think it might be interesting if they made something like a Shin Megami Tensei version of Project X-Zone. .....Except with Persona-style combat, of course. ....Lol, I can almost see it now how Midori would react to some of the other, non-Devil-Survivor-present Personae.... (ESPECIALLY the one that looks like a p*** chariot.)

Magikarp. The best.
Well. Seems like Persona 5 was finally announced! About time if you ask me!
That and PQ seems like a nice amount of fun while I wait for more Persona main series goodness.

About other stuff SMT related, we still have heard nothing else about the SMT x FE project. I wonder what Atlus and Nintendo may be cooking for us...

So earlier today, Atlus announced four games through a stream:

Persona Q: Shadow of the Labryrinth | Teaser| Official Website
Megami Tensei Wiki said:
Persona Q: Shadow of the Labryinth' (ペルソナQ シャドウ オブ ザ ラビリンス) is a crossover RPG between Persona 3 and Persona 4 on the 3DS. The graphic user interface in battle and the deformed character redesign appears to be done by the development team of Etrian Odyssey series.
Persona 4: The Ultimax Ultra Suplex Hold (console version, I think) | Teaser | Official Website
Megami Tensei Wiki said:
This story continues after the events in Persona 4 Arena. A few days after P4A, a new tournament pops up on the Midnight Channel called the P-1 Climax. A bizarre red fog covers the streets of Inaba and an image of a figure that looks like Mitsuru, Aigis and Akihiko being crucified is shown on TV. The Shadow Operatives and the Investigation Team work together to figure out what’s going on behind the new tournament.
Persona 4: Project Diva Dancing All Night (PSVita) | Teaser | Official Website
Megami Tensei Wiki said:
Persona 4: Dancing All Night (ペルソナ4 ダンシングオールナイト) or P4D is a rhythm game for the PlayStation Vita developed by Atlus and Dingo. Features remix of the soundtrack and dancing characters from Persona 4.
And of course, announced right near the end:

Persona 5 | Teaser | Official Website
Megami Tensei Wiki said:
A special program was streamed by Atlus on November 24, 2013. After the announcements for Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth and Persona 4: Dancing All Night, a countdown appeared starting from 55:555 followed by a teaser trailed in red, showing 5 chairs with a chain bound to each one. The text shown was 'You are slave. Want emancipation?'.

Afterwards, the release date was shown along with the platform it will get released on, Winter 2014 on PlayStation 3.
Red colour scheme (just like Persona 2 Innocent Sin) and "You are slave. Want emancipation?" as the tagline = Another dark Persona game, sweet.

More excited for Q than 5 actually. Maybe because Q is sooner and we actually know something about it.

Speaking of FE X SMT, it's kinda odd, yet interesting how they're so secretive about it, considering it was announced ages ago all we know is that it's in development.
I don't find it odd. It was obviously in VERY early development and had no chance of coming out till 2014 (which is the year nintendo said they will veer more away from the casual games and focus on games like X, Bayonetta 2, and smash bros).
