Atlus Teases Shin Megami Tensei Series 25th Anniversary Project

Atlus has launched a new teaser website for a Shin Megami Tensei series 25th anniversary project.

Alongside the new website and project announcement comes a refreshing of the series’ official Twitter account. The first tweet after the account was refreshed teases a new project for the series 25th anniversary. Atlus then asked fans to look forward to updates, and to support them in 2017.

The series 25th anniversary logo, seen above, has the Roman numerals I, II, III, and IV, pointing to the four main entries in the Shin Megami Tensei series, and their corresponding years of release.

The word “Next” is shown prominently at the center of the logo. Could we be seeing Shin Megami Tensei V? Sound off in the comments below!

In case you missed it – you can find our thorough written and video review for Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse here (we highly recommend it!).

    Shin Megami Tensei V would be nice, though I would also like remakes of SMT 1, if, and 2 and maybe even remakes of the Famicom Megami Tensei 1 and 2.

  • Lucky

    Remakes are dumb, but I wouldn’t mind a translated pack of those games.

    Atlus already translated SMT1 on iOS, couldn’t hurt.

  • VanFinale

    I hope for a port or something of SMT 1 & 2 those games were never officially put out on English.

  • Obbliglol

    Oh man, I’m just hoping those shiny new HD assets made for Persona 5 are gonna be used. To have a mainline on home console again…

  • Jumanji Joe

    I predict smtxfe 2 as a “thank you” to all the fans.

  • totenglocke

    Well anything made for Switch would be both home console and portable…

  • Tin o Beans

    SMTV on Console, lead by Kazuma Kaneko.

    I can only dream :D

  • sanic

    I’ll take it whatever it is it, could just be a bag of ice cubes labelled “jack frost poop” and I’ll take 7

  • Michael Richardson

    SMT V for Switch or PS4 would be a dream come true.

  • koreawut

    I thought SMT 1 was on iPad?

  • koreawut

    Final Fantasy x SMT ? haha

  • Captain Vidya

    Hey, they have to get SOME mileage out of those P5 demon models.

  • Uncle Ocelot

    SMTV for Switch and PS4 seems like a safe bet.

  • InkBrush
  • VanFinale

    Oh apparently it is still if playing on a mobile device I might as well just emulate the fan translation. I want more a semi-updated port on a gaming machine.

  • 真・女神転生

    Kinda old news but I’m betting on a phone game.

  • 真・女神転生

    doubt it.

    SMTIV definite edition SWITCHA is more likely to be a thing in 2 years

  • The Clansman

    It would be so fucking cool to have this in the Switch presentation.

  • Fenrir007

    How’s the translation on it? Some companies skimp out on their mobile translations.

  • Lucky

    Pretty good, better than the fan one I think, but they couldn’t let you name the character with lowercase letters. So it reads like a Pokémon game sometimes.

    HERO, please help me save GIRL. Stuff like that.

  • Lynn Mooney

    This is fantastic news! Can’t wait for more info. :)

  • tccboss

    Come on SMTV. come on SMTV. come on SMTV!!

  • PixelBuff

    Meh. It’ll probably be some shit relegated to 3DS, or another abortion like FE X SMT.

    I’d love a current-gen console SMT, or Raidou 3 or something but not holding my breath for anything worthwhile, Atlus has consistently given SMT less love after Persona became their money maker.

  • Fenrir007

    Hah, that’s hilarious!
