Shin Megami Tensei III Nocturne HD Remaster
PlayStation®4, Nintendo Switch Ι Genre: Post-Apocalyptic JRPG
Today we go back to the second half of the 80s; more precisely to September 11, 1987. On that day a new kind of RPG appeared on Nintendo Famicom, and it was destined to become a big hit in a very short time; its title was Digital Devil Story: Megami Tensei.
Inspired by the same name literal trilogy written by Aya Nishitani; Atlus created a sci-fi multiverse strongly imbued with mythology and folklore. Here, humans and sacred beings can join their forces to defeat the baddest guys on Earth. Featuring a first-person 3Dish gameplay system, this series introduced a huge innovation for those years; the opportunity to catch and fuse enemies to create even more powerful supernatural allies, also, its cyberpunk aesthetic melted with occult elements made it a truly unique game full of surprises and charm.
Thanks to its incredible positive reception, luckily for us, many other installments have been released for a plethora of different systems including Super Famicom, Mega-CD, Sega Saturn, Virtual Boy, Xbox, PlayStation 2, and many others; don’t stop only to the main series, but introducing also several side-stories that enriched the Megami Tensei’s universe with a lot of characters and great stories. Among them, it is necessary to remember Persona, Devil Summoner, Last Bible, Jack Bros., Digital Devil Saga, and Raidou Kuzunoha!
Watch, and record the history of the world…
But the first quest is never forgotten; since the first installment, the Shin Megami Tensei series describes in various ways how humans can interact with deities and other supernatural beings; in a post-apocalyptic Japan during the last decade of the twentieth century, we can witness how each of us (this is the main reason behind the traditional “unnamed hero” figure) can turn into a very charismatic person able to communicate with the beings of the underworld. All of this is possible thanks to a special e-mail which contains the Devil Summoning Program; the detailed instructions about how to summon, discuss, and possibly recruit all of these creatures.
One of the greatest features of the original game, which has been wisely kept also in the next chapters, was that players can choose freely the faction; determining the future of Japan through siding with God and his angels (for absolute order), or with Lucifer and his demons (for total freedom), or even siding with neither to realize a personal vision of society…
And this is especially evident in Shin Megami Tensei III Nocturne; a masterpiece that returns in a legendary HD Remaster version for PlayStation 4 & Nintendo Switch!
