NEWS - Atlus Reveals Remaining 3DS Lineup
Reported by NCZ on Wed Jun 7 2017

The 3DS is a system that never stops delivering for RPG fans, especially those by developer Atlus. After months of speculation, Atlus revealed today that they will indeed be localizing a holy trinity of RPGs in three of their most famous franchises, keeping the handheld train rolling from this fall through the beginning of the new year.

  • Etrian Odyssey V (Fall 2017) - Exactly as it says on the tin, the fifth entry in the Etrian Odyssey series of dungeon crawlers will indeed be localized, over a year after its launch in Japan.

  • Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology (Early 2018) - A cult classic RPG originally released late during the DS's lifespan, this updated port boasts new artwork, storyline embellishments, and full voice acting. The original game was renowned for its mature storytelling, and a well-crafted plot using time travel as a key element.

  • Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey Redux (Early 2018) - Despite its lack of a numeral, Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey is a mainline entry in the series like any other, and one of the most well-liked to boot. Released for the original DS in 2009, this is an enhanced port similar to Radiant Historia's, featuring new artwork and storyline segments. Uniquely for an Atlus game, Strange Journey Redux will not receive an English dub, instead being released exclusively with its original Japanese audio track.

Fret not if the 3DS isn't your preferred platform of choice. The previously announced 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim and Shin Megami Tensei HD Project are still in development, and respectively planned for release on PS4 and Nintendo Switch. More news on all of these games is expected at next week's E3 and future gaming events.

I find it ironic that SJR isn't getting a dub since that game's character cast is full of various non-Japanese ethnicities. And yet games like the Persona and Devil Survivor series where they are set in japan got dubs. lol

At least SJR got quite a seiyuu lineup, so hopefully that will compensate for most gamers with this decision.

@doodlebugfour Strange Journey was set in Antarctica instead of the SMT usual location of Tokyo to specifically appeal to foreign audiences. So I feel the lack of a dub is just gonna counteract that appeal. That said, I'm super glad these games are headed west.
