The first update for Monster Hunter XX is now available.

This patch is required if you want to keep playing online.


Atlus has shared some new information about Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology. The following was translated by Gematsu.

First up, some info on the staff working on the game. The director is Mitsuru Hirata, who was the director of the original Radiant Historia game, the chief director of Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE and has also worked on several Shin Megami Tensei titles such as Shin Megami Tensei IV and SMT: Strange Journey.

The music is being done by the legendary Yoko Shimomura, who has composed dozens of excellent game soundtracks, including series like Kingdom Hearts, Mario & Luigi, Xenoblade Chronicles and the original Radiant Historia. She composed five new tracks for the 3DS version.

Responsible for the new characters designs is Masaki Hirooka, who previously worked on Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia, Suikoden Tierkreis and Kid Icarus: Uprising. Hirooka also drew several new event scenes.

The new animated opening movie is being produced by A-1 Pictures, a prestigious animation studio responsible for works such as Fairy Tail, Erased, Your Lie in April and the recent Ace Attorney anime.

The story remains largely the same as in the original game, with the main character Stocke being caught up in a war between the countries Granorg and Alistel while he discovers his ability to travel between alternate histories.

A new character called Nemesia appears in the 3DS version. She is a historian that doesn’t belong to either of the two main timelines, but rather the new “Sub-History” timeline. She’s looking for a material known as “Artifact”.

Most of the original’s gameplay mechanics stay the same in this remake, such as the ability to travel between certain points in the alternate histories, the ability to perform various actions in the overworld and the game’s unique grid-based combat system.

Head past the break for some more info on what has changed in the remake as well as tons of new screenshots and art.

With the last update of their website, Famitsu has also uploaded the first screenshots of Kamiko, a new action game that will be arriving on the Switch next month in Japan.

This game has been developed by Fairune devs Skipmore and will present players with the control of three “Divine Maidens” with different powers and abilities in a fantastic and pixelated world.

Famitsu has published their online preview of the recently announced Shin Megami Tensei: Deep Strange Journey, along with the first screenshots of the upcoming 3DS game.

As you probably know by now, this will be a remake of the SMT: Strange Journey game for DS, but with new features such as an easier playability, a new character and new story endings.

Thanks to Famitsu and Gematsu we also got the first story details for SMT: Deep Strange Journey. A strange land with the name of “Schwarzwelt” has suddenly appeared in the Antarctic and the protagonist, along with a Strike Team, must investigate it. Monsters from the Shin Megami Tensei series appear and the player must make a series of choices in order to decide the future of mankind.

Shin Megami Tensei: Deep Strange Journey will launch this fall for 3DS in Japan.
