Which Shin Megami Tensei Game Is Atlus Bringing Over?

atlusThis image sent out to their Atlus Faithful mailing list with the subject “???” informs us Atlus USA is working on some new Shin Megami Tensei game. Probably Devil Summoner: Raidou Kuzunoha vs. King Abaddon. The clue is the shadow, it looks like “Raiho” a stuffed toy Konamistyle gave out as a pre-order bonus in Japan. The PlayStation 2 game, perhaps Atlus Japan’s final PS2 game, came out there in October.

 

Atlus USA took seven months to localize Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner Radio Kuzunoha vs. the Soulless Army so if everything follows the same schedule we could see the sequel here in May or April.

    That does look a little like Raidou’s hat, so it might be Raidou Kuzunoha vs. King Abaddon, which I will happily snatch up if it’s released.

    I will go out and reserve this game the day it is announced if Raihou up there is a pre-order bonus.

    Please, Atlus!

    It’ll surprise me if this isn’t King Abaddon!

    I’m hoping the Raidou plushie’s a pre-order bonus too. Make it happen Atlus!

    This makes me so excited. I also believe that shadow is Raiho.

    Koei better pick this up in Europe even though the first Raidou game didn’t sell very well :/

      It could be Square Enix now; don’t forget. Unless Persona 4 is just a one time thing due to it’s reputation.

        Very true, thought about that when I had posted. However, I believe Squeenix doesn’t want to take more chances after the commercial failure of Last Remnant and Infinited Undiscovery in Europe. A PS2 game no one has heard about is an even bigger risk… Ghostlight and Koei are safe bets in these scenarios and 505 Games if none of those follows through.. My point being: I want this game!

    Yes finallly if it is Abaddon! And I’ll be happy if that plush is a bonus preorder! Jack Frost ftw!

    I hope it comes with the Nocturne/Raidou Edition, Devil Summoner: Kuzunoha Raidou vs King Abaddon Plus

      Hell, even if they sell it individually I’ll buy them both
