Shin Megami Tensei DS in spring

Atlus' Strange Journey approaches.

Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey is heading to the US this spring under the watchful eye of Atlus.

The DS role-playing game was awarded 36/40 by Japanese super-magazine Famitsu when released there last month.

SMT: Strange Journey, set in the present day, follows a soldier sent to the South Pole by the UN to investigate some strange goings on. From there unravels a dark science fiction tale, encompassing demons, dark voids and mature themes that tap into morality and introspection.

Like other Shin Megami Tensei games, Atlus promises deep RPG mechanics and over 300 demons to negotiate with and fight alongside.
