On May 25, you can pick up a copy of Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne HD Remaster. Pre-orders start today and for anyone who shells out extra for the Digital Deluxe Edition, you can play the game four days earlier on May 21.
If you’ve never played Nocturne before, then you’ll be in for a treat but don’t go in expecting anything like the Persona series. That’s not what this series is, of course, it’s much darker. You play as the Demi-fiend who is caught in the middle of a war between heaven and hell in a post-apocalyptic Tokyo after an event called Conception. While the mainline series shares similarities with the Persona series, like capturing monsters and raising/training them, there is a much more biblical take on the narrative.
The game features:
Remastered 3D models and backgrounds
Additional difficulty settings for players of all skill levels
Suspend save – save your progress whenever you need it!
Voiced audio – choose between Japanese and English VO
An alternate branch featuring Raidou Kuzunoha
You can also nab the Maniax Pack which adds Dante from Devil May Cry and the Chronicle Pack which adds Raidou from the Devil Summoner series. There’s an easier difficulty, the Mercy and Expectation Map Pack, as well as Shin Megami Tensei BGM Pack. The Digital Deluxe Edition retails for roughly $89.99 CAD.
