Atlus reveals new Etrian Odyssey, Radiant Historia, and SMT

In addition to word that they will be localizing Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond the Myth, the studio also revealed that they are bringing over Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology and Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey Redux. Etrian Odyssey V is set to release later this year, and will continue the series tradition of map making, party maximizing, and first-person dungeon crawling. Scenarios will also require making important decisions at key points. Radiant Historia is launching later, in 2018, and is an enhanced port of the 2011 DS original. The time-traveling adventure is being expanded with a third timeline with episodic what-if scenarios, options to play added content during or after the original story, and revamped presentation (new character art, voice overs, music, and intro). Also set for a 2018 release is Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey Redux. This updated port will add extra endings, more story content with a new character, a new dungeon, interface tweaks, and updated graphics. Trailers and screenshots for all can be found below.
