Shin Megami Tensei’s extensive and illustrious history since the late 80s (as Megami Tensei) and early 90s has rightfully set it as one of gaming’s original RPGs that established trends and influenced a multitude of games that succeeded it. What’s also made it so great is that outside of its mainline titles, the myriad of spinoffs have tackled various genres and have been consistently great with addictive yet intuitive demon taming and fusion mechanics. Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey Redux now brings new life to 2009’s Strange Journey by adding tons of quality of life enhancements, a new storyline and character(s), new apps, endings and tons more to make it one of 3DS’s best dungeon-crawling titles, and yet another gem for Atlus.

With Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey Redux arriving on 3DS today, Atlus has gone live with a new launch trailer. Have a look at the video below.

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:
