Strange Journey Redux gets Western release date

Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey was released on the Nintendo DS in both Japan and North America in 2009 and 2010 respectively. When was it released in Europe? Well… it wasn’t. Strange Journey never saw a European release, but Strange Journey’s 3DS port will see a European release.

Announced for European release in June, Strange Journey Redux (SJR) is an enhanced 3DS port of the original DS title featuring updated graphics, voiceovers, a new story arc, new characters, and a new dungeon.

No exact release date was given in June when SJR was first announced for European release, but with the New Year came news of a confirmed release. On January 17th a European release date for SJR was given. SJR will hit European store shelves on May 18th and North American store shelves on May 15th.

In addition to the release date, Atlus gave gamers their first glimpse of official artwork for SJR’s Western release:

As you can see, Gore’s body is just as ready for a Western release as you are.

Western Megami Tensei fans have long speculated on whether or not SJR would receive an English dub, but Atlus’ recently updated sales sheet for SJR confirms SJR’s Western release will feature the original Japanese voiceover audio and no English dub.

SJR was released in Japan on October 17th, 2016 as Deep Strange Journey and received a score of 33/40 from Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu.

Objection! Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney is coming to your 3DS next month. It’s out on November 21st in North America and November 23rd in Europe via the Nintendo eShop for a decent $19.99.

Where’s Phoenix?

To celebrate, Capcom has released a new story trailer that shows Apollo Justice taking over from Phoenix Wright in the courtroom.

The fourth game in Capcom’s beloved lawyering series, it’s up to Apollo and Trucy Wright, (Phoenix’s adopted daughter), to find out exactly why the renowned lawyer is now a mysterious pianist/poker player instead. You probably “couldn’t handle the truth” reader.
