Cave (yes, the Cave famous for shooters) developed a massively multiplayer online RPG based in the Shin Megami Tensei universe. Shin Megami Tensei: Imagine is a free to play online game where players either choose to rebuild a post apocalyptic Tokyo and join the law side, disrupt the system by joining the chaos side, or in typical Shin Megami Tensei fashion choose neither and go neutral. Other staples from the Shin Megami Tensei series like demon negotiation and demon fusion are also present in the game. Atlus Japan makes money through microtransactions where players trade cash for in game items.
Shin Megami Tensei: Imagine was released only in Japanese last year. According to this forum thread at Aeria it appears they will be publishing the game in other languages. A “Game Master” under the handle Superman0X claims they have the rights to English and German language versions of Shin Megami Tensei: Imagine. No details on a date and the lack of an official press release throws this post into the probably-will-happen rumors bin. We’ll keep you posted on this when more details emerge because you can dress up like a nurse and fight demons with a larger than life syringe.
If you have not seen Shin Megami Tensei: Imagine before here’s a gameplay clip to satisfy curiosity.
