SMT III Nocturne Streaming Rules Amended Ahead of Global Release

Shin Megami Tensei III SMT3 Nocturne HD streaming guideline amended

Atlus amended its streaming guidelines for Shin Megami Tensei III Nocturne HD Remaster. It revised the rules ahead of the PC and global releases of the game. [Thanks, 4Gamer!]

In a recent tweet on the Japanese Shin Megami Tensei Twitter account, Atlus reminded streamers and uploaders to add spoiler warnings to videos that contain story content, such as event cutscenes. The guidelines allow individuals to upload videos of the game with a non-profit objective and proper displays of Atlus and Sega’s copyright marks.

The Japanese game publisher had previously published a stricter streaming guideline when SMT3 III Nocturne HD Remaster launched earlier in Japan in October 2020. Compared to the previous version, it removed restrictions in publishing endgame content and using additional devices like capture cards. This is because the new PC release does not have any hardware-based recording restrictions, unlike the PS4 and Switch consoles.

Atlus has been known for its stringent approach towards video streaming to prevent spoiling its title’s storylines to newcomers. Even the streaming monetization allowances made by its parent company Sega for the general Japanese public and company-affiliated streamers like Hololive Vtubers do not apply to Atlus games.

Shin Megami Tensei III Nocturne HD Remaster is immediately available for PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch in Japan and East Asia. The Western release, which also includes a global PC release on Steam, will be available on May 25, 2021.
