I've cum!

EmCeeGramr 04-25-2012 01:45 AM

Now THAT'S an unexpected choice.

dallow_bg 04-25-2012 01:45 AM

And it should come over to NA too.
freaking sweet

Volcynika 04-25-2012 01:45 AM

Atlus with the boom.

Perfect Blue 04-25-2012 01:45 AM

OH MY GOD YES

Deified Data 04-25-2012 01:45 AM

Whoa. Whoa. Shame it'll never be localized.

slaughterking 04-25-2012 01:45 AM

Sweet.

No need for the fan translation now!

[QUOTE=Deified Data;37255212]Whoa. Whoa. Shame it'll never be localized.[/QUOTE]

It'll be localized. Atlus doesn't pass on anything related to Shin Megami Tensei these days.

mugurumakensei 04-25-2012 01:46 AM

i hope they release it in the us

TheSeks 04-25-2012 01:46 AM

Wasn't there a fan translation by Gemini doing this? Guess that's canceled now. :(

FoneBone 04-25-2012 01:46 AM

[QUOTE=Deified Data;37255212]Whoa. Whoa. Shame it'll never be localized.[/QUOTE]

Why? What SMT-related stuff [I]haven't[/I] they brought over in the past decade or so?

geebee 04-25-2012 01:47 AM

Yes!

Thoraxes 04-25-2012 01:47 AM

Fuck yessssssssssssssssssssssssssss

Alrus 04-25-2012 01:47 AM

[QUOTE=Deified Data;37255212]Whoa. Whoa. Shame it'll never be localized.[/QUOTE]

Atlus has localized all of their recent SMT titles, including both Persona 2 remakes on PSP. I don't really see why this one would be an exception...

Rahxephon91 04-25-2012 01:47 AM

[QUOTE=Deified Data;37255212]Whoa. Whoa. Shame it'll never be localized.[/QUOTE]

I don't know about that. Didn't Atlus want to release the PSP version, but couldn't because of Sony?

Tucah 04-25-2012 01:47 AM

[QUOTE=Deified Data;37255212]Whoa. Whoa. Shame it'll never be localized.[/QUOTE]

Don't SMT games always come over now? I'd be surprised if it didn't make it.

ShineALight 04-25-2012 01:47 AM

So it's not a remake but a port with voice acting and other features added?

SolidSnakex 04-25-2012 01:47 AM

[QUOTE=FoneBone;37255251]Why? What SMT-related stuff [I]haven't[/I] they brought over in the past decade or so?[/QUOTE]

Yeah, Atlus even translated Innocent Sin for the PSP last year. There's no reason why they shouldn't translate a game on a much healthier system.

Man God 04-25-2012 01:48 AM

Atlus USA has a terrible track record localizing SMT ports/remakes on Nintendo handhelds...

[spoiler]Even considering how bad they turned out I would have loved to have SMT on the GBA[/spoiler]

[QUOTE=Rahxephon91;37255278]I don't know about that. Didn't Atlus want to release the PSP version, but couldn't because of Sony?[/QUOTE]

That was the first Devil Summoner game, but yes, as I recall, that was what happened.

Those came out before SMT really had any presence in the States, so it's not surprising. I'd look to the fact that we got Strange Journey, and all of the Devil Survivor games, including the unnecessary 3DS remake... we're clearly going to get this.

Forkball 04-25-2012 01:48 AM

Buy this if you want Persona 5.

Bebpo 04-25-2012 01:48 AM

[QUOTE=FoneBone;37255251]Why? What SMT-related stuff [I]haven't[/I] they brought over in the past decade or so?[/QUOTE]

The prequel to this which was ported to the psp?

lol. People said that about Catherine... where's my P5?

B.K. 04-25-2012 01:49 AM

[QUOTE=Bebpo;37255306]The prequel to this which was ported to the psp?[/QUOTE]

They couldn't have done that game if they wanted to. It was just a rom running in a Saturn emulator.

Foxix Von 04-25-2012 01:50 AM

Oh my god. So unexpected but so awesome.

[QUOTE=Rahxephon91;37255278]I don't know about that. Didn't Atlus want to release the PSP version, but couldn't because of Sony?[/QUOTE]

According to their forums there were some technical problems with localizing it.

TheSeks 04-25-2012 01:50 AM

Catherine [i]is[/i] P5.

Hell yeah.

[QUOTE=Forkball;37255304]Buy this if you want Persona 5.[/QUOTE]

Haha. I've said the same with Megaten titles post-Persona 4.

Yup and that was the first thing that came into my head.

graywolf323 04-25-2012 01:51 AM

that's a surprise, would have expected Devil Survivor 2 first

Chacranajxy 04-25-2012 01:51 AM

[QUOTE=Bebpo;37255306]The prequel to this which was ported to the psp?[/QUOTE]

And the remixed version of SMT Nocturne that replaced Dante with Raidou, which was a bonus when Devil Summoner 2 came out...

Though really, nobody would have wanted that.

Busaiku 04-25-2012 01:52 AM

Woo!

TheSeks 04-25-2012 01:54 AM

[QUOTE=Tguy;37255412]Yup and that was the first thing that came into my head.[/QUOTE]

P2:IS PSP must've sold damn good for Atlus to go "well, damn, unreleased SMT titles in America are wanted. BRING THEM OUT ON ALL THE NEW PLATFORMS! *alarms*"

randomkid 04-25-2012 01:54 AM

Exciting, is this the news Aeana was teasing?

Looks like I'm getting a 3DS when this arrives in Amurrica, I hope it's after the revision!

Brazil 04-25-2012 01:54 AM

[I]Yes.[/I]

I will give a store money in exchange for a copy of this software.

Data West 04-25-2012 01:55 AM

OH MY GOD I HOPE RAIDOU IS IN IT

PixyJunket 04-25-2012 01:56 AM

So do any of these Megami Tensei games NOT have extremely micro-management heavy Pokémon subgames?

I LOVE everything else about them, I just can't enjoying PLAYING them because of that.

Credo 04-25-2012 01:56 AM

Day 1. I've never read a single detail about it, but I've also never disliked an SMT game, so I can't wait.

Persona 2 has lists to summon from. But you have to grind cards with the nego system to have enough cards to summon said demons from the list.

Foffy 04-25-2012 02:00 AM

Man, how many games has Atlus re-released in the SMT series since the original release of Persona 4? It feels like they don't want to make new games anymore..

Lafiel 04-25-2012 02:01 AM

Fuck, now I haft to buy a US 3DS now :(

Posting from the future, are we? In the time period I live in, an announcement for Eternal Punishment PSP for NA hasn't been made yet. (Not saying it won't, just saying it hasn't.)

Also, could we [i]finally[/i] get Soul Hackers here in English? That's sure be swell.

PixyJunket 04-25-2012 02:02 AM

[QUOTE=TheSeks;37255629]Persona 2 has lists to summon from. But you have to grind cards with the nego system to have enough cards to summon said demons from the list.[/QUOTE]Hmm. Not sure.

I would sell many bloods to have a version of Nocturne where you can just use standard player characters.

thetrin 04-25-2012 02:02 AM

Oh man, Soul Hackers is one game I have no problem buying a second time. :D

[QUOTE=Foffy;37255678]Man, how many games has Atlus re-released in the SMT series since the original release of Persona 4? It feels like they don't want to make new games anymore..[/QUOTE]

You realize Strange Journey and Devil Survivor 2 both came out after P4, right?

Erm... doubtful.

Gemini's quality towers over official localizations :x

Atlus re-releasing their older games is hardly something they've only started doing in the past few years, though. It's been something they've been doing with the franchise since the 90s.

This is totally fine with me until they run out of unlocalized titles. So I'll be happy for another decade or so.

[QUOTE=shidoshi;37255719] Also, could we [i]finally[/i] get Soul Hackers here in English? That's sure be swell.[/QUOTE]

I don't get it, this announcement means we are getting it in English. The record (and logic) speaks for itself.
