It’s time to call all United Nations soldiers as Atlus have today announced the release date for Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey Redux on the Nintendo 3DS.

Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey Redux will be released for the Nintendo 3DS on May 18th and will feature additional story content, new illustrations by Masayuki Doi, and a brand-new character, Alex.

The story sees a spatial distortion full of demons appeared in Antarctica, threatening to engulf the Earth in Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey. The United Nations respond by tasking a team of highly advanced specialists with piercing the anomaly and figuring out how to stop it from the source. Features of this new release include:

  • A Stranger Journey Back – In Strange Journey Redux, you play as a brave United Nations soldier investigating a spatial anomaly called the Schwarzwelt–a dome of dark energy that threatens to consume the world. Inside, you’ll find it home to a nightmare mirror of our own Earth, populated with demons dying to meet you. The game touts brand-new illustrations by Masayuki Doi, updated visuals, UI tweaks, and more to make this journey back into the Schwarzwelt … even stranger.
  • Additional Story Content and a Brand-new Character – You won’t be retreading the same nightmarish path as before because a brand-new character named Alex will play a major role in how the story unfolds. Much about her is a mystery, but there is one thing you know for sure: she’s got a bone to pick with you. Joining her are new demons you might recognise from other SMT entries, new endings, and a new dungeon to discover.
