All of these have been previously announced, with the latest being Atlus’ big three: Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond the Myth, Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology, and Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey Redux. But with the big show, there’s been some new media released. Check out the new trailers below.
A busy day at Atlus HQ! In one email, the company has revealed several highly anticipated titles. 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.

Lady Justice doesn’t rest, and neither does Phoenix Wright. A new case has come across his desk, Turnabout Time Traveler. The $5.99 episode is set after the main game, and Wright’s childhood pal, Larry Butz, needs some help.

Wright teams up with Maya Fey to help the soon-to-be bride to build a defense before facing off against Chief Prosecutor Miles Edgeworth.
Natsume has released Arc System Works’ stab at the long-running River City series, River City: Tokyo Rumble. The beat ‘em up mixes in light role-playing elements to help see players through waves of enemies as they clean up Tokyo’s streets. After gangs begin to take over the city, high schooler Kunio teams up with his friends to drive them out. When they aren’t crushing heads with chains, bikes, and soccer balls, they are taking on jobs and grabbing snacks. There’s never not a good time to grab a candy bar.
Shin Megami returns today with a skewed take on the endgame of Shin Megami Tensei IV. Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse shifts things a bit, with the player going through the same world but as a new protagonist, Nanashi. The recently deceased, now-resurrected Hunter is the servant of the god Dagda, who plans to take advantage of the ongoing war between man, angel, and demon. Players must decide whether to do his bidding or cut their own path, choosing anarchy or peace, as they undertake quests, explore, and battle (as well as fuse) over 450 demon types.
Atlus has released the launch trailer for Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse. The video introduces players to Nanashi, the new, recently resurrected protagonist. Now beholden to the god Dagda, the player must choose whether to do his bidding or attempt to make their own way. For those new to the series, experience with Shin Megami Tensei IV isn’t necessary; however, as the two games overlap, having gone through the original will definitely help to flesh out ongoing events.
