Tokyo is in full lockdown, the government’s swift, coldblooded response to a surprise demon invasion. Trapped within the sprawling metropolis is the city’s helpless populace, forced to turn on each other in order to survive. A mysterious piece of technology, the COMP, falls into the hands of you and your peers. This device allows you to form contracts, forcing demons to serve you in battle against the otherworldly creatures. There are others with COMPs, so-called demon tamers, who seek to use the demons to satisfy their own whims—be they for justice, peace, or power—in the chaos that was once downtown Tokyo.

Where did the demons come from? Why did they appear? Who created the COMPs, and what is their purpose? These questions must soon be answered, for if you fail to solve the mystery, much more is at stake than your own lives.


  • Shin Megami Tensei goes portable
    The absorbing story, addictive demon-fusing, and hardcore RPG battle that define the Shin Megami Tensei experience finally arrive on Nintendo’s popular dual screen handheld. Expressly designed for Nintendo DS, SMT makes a seamless transition with trademark gameplay features built into an intuitive presentation you can take anywhere!
  • Collect and fuse demons like never before
    Demon collection is updated for a new generation: competitive bidding determines the outcome! Place your winning bid through the easy-to-use menu interface to add new demons to your roster. Then, fuse them together to create new, more powerful creatures to aid you in battle.
  • Hybrid SRPG/RPG combat system
    A perfect synthesis of strategy and traditional RPG combat, you’ll need more than the usual battle strategy to come out on top. Deployed in teams of 2-3, you must choose the right combination of human and demons for each unit placed on the grid, then prepare to launch into first person turn-based battle in the tradition of the classic RPGs!
  • Many possible conclusions
    An epic story of mythological proportions lets you decide whether your loyalties lie with the angels, demons, or only yourself. Decisions made throughout the game will affect the course of the story, ultimately ending in a showdown where your choice of alliance will determine the survival of thousands.

If the 3DS remake also isn't launched here in Europe, I'll import this no matter how expensive it is

I got this one for Christmas; this is a fairly awesome Neo-JRPG, but the best Neo-JRPG is probably still The World Ends With You.

I've got a hunch that says those US sales are overtracked.

Holding strong in the DS-only chart. I'll pick it up after I beat a few other DS games first or it gets a price drop.

The tactical part is like giving a monkey a blow torch. Sure it might be amusing at first but the cuteness wears off, it doesn't really make anything better, and in the end everything just ends up on fire.
