New Shin Megami Tensei 3 Nocturne Remaster Trailer Shows Off Apocalyptic Tokyo

Shin Megami Tensei 3 Nocturne HD Remake is just around the corner, launching on Nintendo Switch, PS4, and PC via Steam on May 25.  The Demi-fiend will return to a devastated Tokyo, and a new trailer from Atlus demonstrates his choices between life or death.

Nocturne will take you back to 2003’s original story, traversing through a post-apocalyptic Tokyo where the world is in your hands. The Demi-fiend is forced to navigate a twisted world eaten up by demons and gods, battling it out for battle in your former backyard. The former high school student turned terrifying apocalyptic entity is forced to make a series of choices that takes him down a path of life or death in a story largely thought to be one of Atlus’ more dark games.

Atlus just revealed its new story-focused trailer, The World’s Rebirth. In the video, a modernized version of Nocturne once again takes us back to the demonic revolution. You can check it out below.

Nocturne is often regarded as one of Atlus’ harder games, beginning a trend of darker PS2 titles for the publisher and developer at the time. Earlier this month, the ESRB even reminded us a little bit of the why with its Mature rating – the same it received before – for blood, violence, strong language, etc.

The Nocturne remaster brings plenty of new features and functionality to the former PS2 hit. You’ll challenge demons and gods looking a little snazzier this go around, with remastered 3D models and backgrounds. Nocturne will also sport additional difficulties, adding in an easier one, Merciful, as free DLC for people (like myself) mostly just interested in the story.

Nocturne will also support a suspended save function for saving progress on the fly, dual Japanese and English audio, and a brand new story branch featuring Raidou Kuzunoha. While Atlus isn’t releasing Nocturne until May 25, folks that pre-order the game’s Digital Deluxe Edition will have access a full four days earlier on May 24, plus get a ton of extra DLC included in the package. Physical versions for PS4 and the Nintendo Switch will also be available, just at the usual time.
