Two weeks ago, the upcoming remaster of Shin Megami Tensei 3: Nocturne was rated by the ESRB, indicating a release date announcement very soon. This week, we got official confirmation, with Atlus announcing that the remastered cult-classic JRPG will be releasing on the 25th of May for PC and consoles.
Shin Megami Tensei 3: Nocturne HD first released in Japan in late 2020 for the Nintendo Switch and PS4. On the 25th of May, the game will get its western release, which will also be available on PC for the first time.
Shin Megami Tensei 3 came out on the PS2 way back in 2003, so the HD remaster has plenty of visual upgrades. The updated version includes remastered 3D models and backgrounds, new difficulty options, re-recorded voice acting in both English and Japanese and an alternative story branch.
Shin Megami Tensei 3: Nocturne’s release is staggered a bit, with Digital Deluxe Edition buyers getting access on the 21st of May, meanwhile standard edition buyers will get the game on the 25th. Once the remaster has shipped, all attention will be turned to finishing development on Shin Megami Tensei V, which is going to be a Nintendo Switch exclusive.
KitGuru Says: It has been a long time since I last played an Atlus RPG, so I’m looking forward to this. Will any of you be picking up the Shin Megami Tensei 3 remaster in a couple of months time?
