Atlus’ Super Famicom classic Shin Megami Tensei is now available for the first time outside of Japan on the iOS. The normal price has been set at $7.99, but the game will be available for $5.99 through March 31.
This robust game comes packed with a lot of content for such a good price. Shin Megami Tensei is well known for having countless demons to forge alliances with and plenty of interesting locations, both modern and demonic, to explore. The plot will also stretch this game for many hours, and replay is always an option considering how widely your choices can affect the outcome of the game.
Those who think that mobile games come off as shallow would do well to check this one out. The virtual d-pad and touch screen controls aren’t cumbersome thanks to menu based fighting, and it comes jam packed with all the content you would expect from a console classic. Atlus knows that mobile gamers are want something meaty to sink their teeth into, and this might be just what they are looking for.
• Everything little thing matters: Character choices play a major role in SMT. Not only do they affect the outcome of the game’s ending, but also critical gameplay elements along the way – from the facilities players can access to the equipment they can use even limiting the demons that are recritable.
• Fuse at your own risk: With two alignment scales to deal with, Law vs. Chaos and Light vs. Dark, micromanaging teams of demon soldiers becomes an addicting challenge.
• A bit longer than a bathroom break: Shin Megami Tensei is the full-fledged version of the role-playing game, meaning it’s 40-60 hours’ worth of dungeon crawling in your pocket, everywhere you go.
• The first of its kind: Unless you were prescient enough to import the title from Japan and proficient enough in the language to understand the nuances of the intricate story, this is the first time the story of Shin Megami Tensei is being told in North America.
Mobile gamers unfamiliar with Atlus should know that the company loves digital discounts. Not only will this not be the last time you see Shin Megami Tensei‘s price slashed, but its entire Nintendo 3DS library has also been discounted through March 31 in celebration of it breaking into a new market. If you enjoy this game, you’d be wise to check out the rest they have to offer.
I’d pick up Shin Megami Tensei in a heartbeat if I owned an Apple device, but sadly, no word has been made on an Android version yet.
