Atlus announced yesterday that it’s once again bringing Shin Megami Tensei to iOS, only this time it will be fully translated. This version marks the first time a localized version ever makes its way to North America and will become available March 18 for $7.99.
Atlus’ press release reads, “For the first time in history, the ground-breaking role-playing game Shin Megami Tensei will be localized for North American release. The original struggle between Law and Chaos is being localized by the ATLUS team behind Persona 4, Catherine, and Shin Megami Tensei IV, and coming exclusively to the App Store™ in 2014. This is the seminal Shin Megami Tensei title that started it all for ATLUS, the inspiration behind Persona, Devil Summoner, Devil Survivor, etc. I hope you’re good at dealing with demons…”
While the asking price is a bit steep at about $8, this gives SEGA fans who aren’t very familiar with older Atlus titles a great opportunity to learn more about the series from its very beginnings.
