Following after the english localization announcement, Atlus has shared two new videos for Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey Redux. The first being a story trailer, and the second is a gameplay clip that shows Ouroboros and Morax. The clip was taken from a livestream on Nico Nico and shared by Siliconera.
After watching the story trailer, do you understand a least a little bit about the story? No? Don’t worry, we’ll give you an overview about the game’s story from its wikipedia page. After all, this is a remastered (and western localization) of Nintendo DS‘ Shin Megami Tensei: Deep Strange Journey.
A mysterious black hole has appeared on the region of the South Pole and is expanding day by day. Concerned of this event, the United Nations sent a collection of elites from around the world to investigate the area called Schwarzwelt. Inside, the U.N. Schwarzwelt Investigational Team finds that the area has been infested with supernatural beings known as demons that threaten to cross into the human world. As the team delves further into the Schwarzwelt, they find strange and repulsive callbacks to human society.
The player assumes control of an unnamed soldier from America (or Japan in the Japanese version), who will be working with three other crew members assigned by the Joint Project. The crew dons Demonica suits, which enables access to special abilities as well as regulating the player to the conditions within the Schwarzwelt.
