Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey Joins Elite Club Of M-Rated DS Games

Less than one percent of all Nintendo DS games have are rated M by the ESRB and Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey is one of them. Strange Journey is the 10th M-rated DS game out of 1,366 rated titles. Compare that to 262 out of 1,940 PlayStation 2 games, roughly 13.5%.

 

Releasing a M-rated DS game is risky business. That plan didn’t work out so well for Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars. Good to know that Atlus didn’t tone Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey down just to get a more common (and parent friendly) T-rating.

 

After Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey comes out in spring 2010, Atlus will release a limited number of passwords to unlock special rare demons. Players can generate and share passwords from their demon compendiums too. Say, you desperately need an ice demon to beat a boss. You can bug a friend with Odin to make a password so you can press on.
