Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey Redux Is Coming in the Spring

Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey Redux Is Coming in the Spring

Go to Hell. It's quite lovely in May.

Ahh, springtime. That magical time of year when the northern half of the earth shakes itself awake and renews life. What better time to travel to Antarctica and visit a hell-mouth?

Discover the magic of the season yourself when Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey Redux comes to the Nintendo 3DS in North America and other territories. Atlus sent out a press release earlier today confirming a launch date of May 15 and a price of $39.99 USD.

If you're not familiar with the plot of Strange Journey Redux, here's what's shaking: A time-space distortion appears over Antarctica, and it's filled with demons.

"Oh no, we entered a portal to Hell and everything went terribly wrong somehow."

The U.N. sends out a special team to investigate the anomaly, and inside they find a twisted mirror version of our own Earth. The team (including you) delves deep into the darkness in hopes of shutting off the problem at its source.

Strange Journey Redux is a remake of 2009's Strange Journey for the Nintendo DS, but you'll still see plenty of new stuff. There's are new endings, a new dungeon, and new story content involving a mysterious girl named Alex. You don't know her, but she's decided she hates you, so good luck with that.

Check out Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey Redux for the Nintendo 3DS on May 15.
