"How did Atlus get it to fit?"

When the black spot appeared in the Antarctic, mankind became nervous; when it began to spread, that anxiety turned to panic. The Joint Project, convened to discuss how to deal with the expanding anomaly, decided to send in four ships carrying humanity's finest soldiers and most cutting-edge technology. The mission: to investigate what lay on the other side of what had been dubbed the Schwarzwelt and find out if there was a way to stop it from eventually covering the Earth.

You are an elite soldier hand-picked for the Strike Team, outfitted with a Demonica environment suit and posted to the Red Sprite under Commander Gore. Upon entering the Schwarzwelt, the crew finds itself forced to deal with harsh conditions, supernatural interference, and throngs of demons populating the bewildering world. What exactly is the Schwarzwelt? What awaits at the end of this strange journey? It is entirely in your hands to find out...

Key Features

  • Shin Megami Tensei goes beyond -- Strange Journey's game mechanics represent a return to the proud tradition of the all-time dungeon-crawling classic SMT: Nocturne, while its story takes players into the near future on a mission to save Earth and to understand humanity's position within the larger universe.
  • A dark turn into science fiction -- Who or what is causing the black hole that is engulfing the Earth? A mission to investigate the cause uncovers a whole world of demons that humans knew nothing about. Do they seek your destruction or will you seek theirs? Will you decide to save Earth or choose another path for humanity?
  • Team up with demons -- Demons may be friends or foes depending on your ability to negotiate, bribe, and coerce them to join your party. With more than 300 types of demons, you'll have a huge variety of battlefield encounters and an equally large base of options on which to build your party strategy.

I'm quite disappointed that it doesn't have suspend save. Why take out a feature that Devil Survivor had... and personally I think every portable game should have.

Ugh! I really want to play this but there hasn't been any word at all on a possible EU release date. Devil Survivor never even made it over here so I'm expecting the worst.

Needless to say this is very upsetting, back to EBAY for me again :/

I can't wait for this! If you haven't checked out the music for this, look for it on youtube, it is fantastic. The music alone makes me want to get this game. If you pre-order it you also get the OST packaged with the game. Believe me it is good stuff.

A hole in the Antarctic? Commander Gore? This all sounds a little familiar.
