Following last week’s announcement, Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology’s full site is now live. You can view it right here. The site has the first trailer, a look at the Character Deformation Pack included with first-print copies, and more.

At the end of the Atlus New Title Announcement Special Spring 2017 live stream, the same Shin Megami Tensei trailer from January was shown. However, one extremely brief scene was added with the image above.

Atlus didn’t have anything new to say about the Shin Megami Tensei Switch project otherwise. Since development is still fairly on, don’t expect to see it until 2018 (in Japan) at the earliest.

Following the announcement of Etrian Mystery Dungeon 2 today, the first footage from the game was shown during the Atlus New Title Announcement Special Spring 2017 live stream. We’ve attached the recording below.

In January, Atlus teased a new Shin Megami Tensei game for 3DS. That mystery game was revealed today as a remake of Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey.

Shin Megami Tensei: Deep Strange Journey will be easier to play and is a refined version of the original with added elements. Characters will now be fully voiced, saving in dungeons can be done at any time, and a new character is introduced.

Gematsu provides the following information:

Atlus showed off the first gameplay for Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology footage during its announcement event today. We have the relevant recording below.

Etrian Mystery Dungeon 2 is heading to 3DS, Atlus announced today. The news was just shared during the Atlus New Title Announcement Special Spring 2017 event.

Buyers will receive a two-disc user’s best album featuring player favorite songs from the Etrian Odyssey series when they pick up a first-print copy of the game. Atlus will allow fans to vote on the tracks until April 9. Yuuji Himukai designed the jacket that houses the CDs.

Also, an Etrian Odyssey 10th Anniversary Box limited edition will be sold for 9,800 yen. It’ll come with a copy of the game, special-make box, and 200-page Character Art Works book containing character illustrations from across the Etrian Odyssey series numbered titles.

Etrian Mystery Dungeon 2 launches on August 31 in Japan for 6,480 yen. Access the official website here and watch the first trailer below.

Here’s an overview of the story, courtesy of Gematsu:

Monster Hunter XX launched in Japan on March 18, and had a big impact on the Japanese market. Overall software sales were 1,341,000 units during the week of March 13, which is 249.05 percent compared to the previous week. For hardware, 138,000 units were sold (105.3 percent compared to the previous week).

Monster Hunter XX itself sold 848,000 copies. The game’s success helped contribute to overall software sales surpassing one million units since Christmas week last year. 3DS sales also up 178.54 percent from last week.

However, Monster Hunter XX’s sales are 60 percent of the original base game (first week 1,488,000 copies, 91.84 percent sell-through) and Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate (first week 1,446,000 copies, 85.40 percent sell-through). Monster Hunter XX’s sell-through rate is 72.39 percent, which is also ten points less than the former two, so Media Create says it may be considered as lacking for a Monster Hunter game.

When Level-5 announced Inazuma Eleven Ares last year, the company did so without announcing any platforms. But during the fourth Inazuma Walker live stream today, Level-5 CEO Akihiro Hino finally shared some news.

Hino said that, in addition to 3DS, Inazuma Eleven Ares will be on some other platform. “It may also release on what you would call a higher quality game machine… perhaps,” Hino teased.

Switch could certainly be one possibility. With Inazuma Eleven Ares featuring toys and Nintendo’s new system having an NFC reader, a release on the new console would make sense.

You can watch the full, three-hour broadcast of Inazuma Walker below, which even includes trailers for The Snack World anime.

Koei Tecmo published a pair of commercials for Attack on Titan: Escape from Certain Death today. Both are attached below.
