English-speaking fans can finally play the seminal Super Famicom dungeon-crawler Shin Megami Tensei (SMT), without the need for a Japanese dictionary, by grabbing the first officially localised version of the game on iPhone.
This is the first game in the SMT series (the latest of which, Shin Megami Tensei IV, came out on 3DS last year), which has spawned countless spin-offs like Persona, Devil Summoner, and Devil Survivor.
Set in a demon-infested ’90s Tokyo, this 1993 game gives you a handy ability, via a computer program, to chat with demons and recruit them to fight for you.
Across the lengthy 40- to 60-hour story, you’ll have to fuse monsters to create the right team, make critical decisions that change the outcome of the game, and fight hundreds of enemies.
You can get the game now on iPhone (there is currently no native iPad version) for a special launch price of £3.99 / $5.99. It will shoot up to £5.49 / $7.99 on 31 March.
