The Shin Megami Tensei series is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, and to start off, Atlus has launched a special website for this occasion. At the moment, there’s pretty much nothing of interest to see on the website – except the logo above, which incorporates the release years of all four mainline Shin Megami Tensei games, alongside the word “next”. This seems to hint at Shin Megami Tensei V being released this year, or at the very least being announced.
Of course, we don’t know yet if this game (or any other potential games planned for this anniversary) will be on Nintendo platforms, but we will keep you updated if that’ll end up being the case.

Nintendo’s upcoming “Super Nintendo World” theme park at various Universal Studios parks was talked about quite a bit recently. Now, it seems like Super Nintendo World won’t be the only video game-themed attraction at Universal Studios – Square-Enix announced a collaboration with Universal Studios Japan today. To celebrate the 30th anniversary of Dragon Quest, a “Real Battle Attraction” is coming to the Universal Studios park in Osaka. There, visitors will be able to grab weapons, enter dungeons and fight monsters for an authentic Dragon Quest experience.
Further details have not yet been announced so far, like the time frame for this event. The fact that this is a celebration of Dragon Quest’s 30th anniversary seems to suggest that this is a limited-time only event that won’t last very long, but we don’t know for sure yet.
