Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey for the Nintendo DS Coming to America in March

Atlus comes through once again for fans of Japanese role-playing games. The publisher announced today it plans to bring Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey for the Nintendo DS to America. The game is due to arrive March 10, 2010. Strange Journey recently came out in Japan. It received scores of 10/9/9/8 (they use a four review system) making it the best reviewed game for the series in Famitsu magazine.

Billed as "the true successor to SMT: Nocturne" the new game boasts over 300 demons to try and influence to join forces with you. This time the game takes a sci-fi twist and with it leaves the usual setting of Tokyo. Taking place in the near future, a black void has started spreading over the South Pole. Your team of adventurers has been sent to investigate the phenomenon and stop its spread before it destroys the earth.

The press release promises "a return to the proud tradition of the all-time dungeon-crawling classic SMT: Nocturne." Classic role-playing games seem to have found a place to thrive on the DS. This could well be yet another success.
