Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey Redux: faux Jack Bros. 2 trailer

Posted on October 16, 2017 by (@OnePunchMaz) in 3DS, Videos

Update (10/16): In an interesting twist of fate, Atlus has released Shin Megami Tensei: Synchronicity Prologue on PC. It can be downloaded for free here until December 24.

Original (10/13): Atlus has released a rather interesting trailer for Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey Redux, which will be released in Japan on October 26 and next year in the rest of the world. The trailer initially shows off a Metroidvania-style game featuring Jack Frost and Pyro Jack. This is a callback to Jack Bros., an action game for the Virtual Boy featuring those characters. Sadly, this apparent sequel to Jack Bros. is quickly declared “fake” by the trailer, which then moves on to actual game footage. Give it a watch:

    Why do these companies keep doing this? It’s rude enough when it happens on April Fools’ Day, but if they really want to make this game then just do it.

  • hi v3.0

    Atlus why you trollin!!

    You wanted our attention on the game, now you got it. Too bad the Jack Frost game is fake, though it looks rather real and polished.

    Dat Girimehkala belly flop!

      It likely is real and coming out eventually; the devs that made it did a joke game similar to this for KonoSuba, same style and everything down to SFX and text screens. It’s kinda suspicious, feeling like its gonna be a pack-in for that Strange Journey collector’s edition.

  • jack bros looks good

    Sure it’s fake, for once something looks really good in that remake …

  • Locky Mavo

    Why don’t they just release it on the Switch/3DS now?

  • Exy

    I beat it in two and a half hours. It’s basically Ikaruga the Metroidvania. Someone ought to build that into a full-scale title.


  • i’m stuck on level 2 of jack bros
