Megami Tensei Gaiden

G-Mode announced that another deep cut from its back catalog will be ported to the Nintendo Switch. Megami Tensei Gaiden: Last Bible New Testament III: Mugen no Eiyuu will join the expanding G-Mode Archives+ Switch collection in Japan. The game was first released in 2010 for mobile phones on the iAppli and EZAppli platforms.

Megami Tensei Gaiden: Last Bible New Testament III joins the previous two games as part of G-Mode’s G-Mode Archives+ line. The Last Bible New Testament games are phone-based spin-offs of Atlus’ Famicom-era Last Bible titles. Loosely based on Megami Tensei, the Last Bible games struck a more traditional fantasy style and tone, with closer similarities to Dragon Quest than the darker urban and occult leanings of the core Megami Tensei games. The Last Bible New Testament titles also featured classical Megami Tensei mechanics like demon negotiation and fusion.

Megami Tensei Gaiden: Last Bible New Testament III is a sequel to the first two games, and involves Leon and Luna, the “Children of the Gospel” from the previous game. The game is set on in the world of Damir, which is under threat from demonic beasts. The protagonist dons a mysterious “COMP” bracelet, attracting the attention of the demons and enabling them to gain their allegiance to fight by their side.

G-Mode has been rereleasing its mobile phone-based catalog to Switch since 2020. Once specializing in Java-based phone games, G-Mode was acquired by Marvelous in 2015. It rereleased the first  Last Bible New Testament title in July 2022 on Switch in Japan. No release date has been specified for the other two games. When they arrive, though, they’re expected to cost about 1,800 Yen (about $12 USD).

Megami Tensei Gaiden: Last Bible New Testament II and III are scheduled for release on Nintendo Switch in 2022.
