The Strange Journey remake coming out stateside in 10 days got me thinking: International SMT game when? I want to see Demons fucking shit up in their countries of origin Castlevania Bloodlines-style. Imagine the Greek Pantheon trying to take back their old stomping grounds, flocks of Moh-Shuvuu flying over Siberia, Matador dueling in an actual bullfighting arena or Chemtrail turning America's frogs gay. There's so many Demons from so many parts of the world that it's kind of a shame that the games only ever take place in Japan or an outer world like the Schwartzwald or Vortex World. It's not like we have a shortage of Japanese deities to keep Nippon relevant in a globetrotting game. The closet we ever got to a game set outside of Japan was Strange Journey technically taking place in Antarctica, but the entire game was inside the Schwartzwald anyway.

Minus the awful localizers, Imagine was one of the last MegaTen games to truly care about the fans of the franchise.

The countless lore throwbacks, creative monthly updates, holiday events and even 3D debuts for some demons were the kind of feeling private servers can never replicate (though I do appreciate them).

Also, friendly reminder to keep an eye out for Suzuki and Masuko's upcoming visual novel.

>I had to stop in my SMT IV playthrough halfway through because my 3DS got fucked and it sucks

I almost got fugged out of the neutral ending since they make masakado fusionable after he joins your party but if you do that you can’t open the gate to Lucifer’s palace. Luckily had a backup save even though it only gives you two, game is full of little traps like that which makes it alternative frustrating and gratifying.

>its really only very challenging for the first 15 hours, and then drops off afterwards for the most part outside of those brutal optional bosses that can 1HKO you and occasionally a boss that's rough

The beelzebub boss towards the end is one of the hardest boss battles I’ve seen in any jrpg. Went on YT for help and noticed all the vids beating him were new game+ with demons leveled over 90. Was only in the 60 range but knew if I put it down might not pick it up again so just said fug it and kept grinding the battle for about 5 hours until beat him. Was one of those things where wanted to brag about it afterward but who’s gonna care.

>I actually liked it though, but you'll find most people here don't and for good reason

Why ‘good reason’ if you liked it? Main reason I got it was from a thread here asking about best/most challenging 3ds jrpgs. Speaking of which what if any other games are similar in difficulty? Already have apocalypse but waiting till after FE Awakening (just started, meh so far) to play it. Bravely Default looks decent but after wasting $$ on dragon quest 7 wary about spending more time and money on a game toddlers could beat.

It's a pretty funny story. You see, "SMT if…" had a gender select option for the protagonist. When Satomi got hired to write for Persona, he decided to bring in SMTif's female protagonist as a guest character. As I'm sure you know, MegaTen protagonists are blank-slate characters in their own games. So when Satomi brought her over, he took the liberty of adapting her into an avatar of his favourite real-life actress, Yuki Uchida. He was unapologetically obvious about it, giving her the same last name and hobby (fencing).

He then inserted himself as a character and made him her canon boyfriend.

While you could argue this was a tiny bit creepy, it was just harmless fun. But fanboys being fanboys, they made a fuss over this shit, and eventually Satomi felt pressured to do away with his self-insert by the 3rd Persona game (Eternal Punishment). That game ended up becoming the worst-selling Persona title anyway.

Moral of the story: Never let a triggered audience steer your business decisions.

Far as I can see, his self-insert didn't even get a character article in the Persona World Guidance book, poor guy (though the drugstore family did).


Impressive. Good stuff, guys.

There's a couple differences between Tadashi and that shit, though. First off, Satomi was completely honest with his self-insert, using his full real name and no alias. Second, Satomi's self-insert was a lot more tasteful by being grounded in self-deprecation and never directly getting in the way of the story.

I unpacked the ROM and watched the cutscenes so what I know from the new neutral ending Tadano is immoral somehow, spending his time looking at Alex's ring on the moon then Arthur tells him that the Schwarzwelt appeared again and if he still feels human, ending with Tadano going back to Earth to fight again but I have no idea what the other endings are like or how shoehorned in is Alex.

I started playing but haven't gotten to that part yet.

831fc4 No.14772300


I think it is Alex that tells you that perusing the original paths are the wrong choice since apparently they doom humanity anyway. You are forced to encounter her near Mem Aleph's chamber in Sector Horologium regardless of your progress in the Wailing Womb.

8ec5df No.14772402


Wasn't that the point of the original endings?

I might be remembering it wrong but law is totalitarianism where everyone is brainwashed, chaos is where only the strongest survived and neutral was where the surviving crew came back to warn humanity that this can happen again if they don't change their ways.

It never set up a scenario where humanity is saved with the best ending being a second chance for the humans as the Schwarzwelt can return.

I'm assuming this is retconned now.

ca8a52 No.14772474


The new neutral end has the MC becoming an immortal marine, dealing with the Schwarzwelt whenever it reappears. The new chaos has the survival of the fittest theme but now the weak can be helped so that they can become strong. The new law has the kingdom of god but now people have free will.

831fc4 No.14772487


>I'm assuming this is retconned now.

Yeah pretty much, they're replaced with happier endings as >>14772474 says. However the OG endings didn't tell you whether it's good or bad that those things happen, that goes out the window since Alex comes from either the original Law, Neutral or Chaos future (depending on what path you take) telling you that it's the wrong choice if you decide to pursue them.

8ec5df No.14772570


That's rather heavy handed, I expected better from Ishida since he seems to have a better grasp of what makes SMT unique compared to Yamai.

I assume this was to make it more appealing to the Japanese audience since the original sold poorly and they don't seem to enjoy darker stories.

As for the game, I'm not hating it as much as thought I would do far but the new content is rather poorly written compared to the original.

I'm playing it, it's alright. Combat is as tense as I remembered, especially since I'm playing on expert. However you get access to good sub apps fairly quickly in redux like relax spray that lets you smooth out a mistake during negotiating and combat related sub apps that let your party move before the enemy, which can trigger multiple times in a battle depending on your luck. This is all during the first sector mind you. Also they removed sub app slots which is fucking stupid, now you can just activate as many sub apps as you want unlike in the original where you had a limit and had to choose wisely. It really kills a good chunk of tension in the game. Story wise I'm in sector:C, met Alex who ended up killing me but you end up getting revived by some harvest demon in a new dungeon. The new writing clashes with the old, it's easy to spot and poorly written. Also the crew members having their own portraits is pretty meh, they look like bland anime characters than the elite of the elite handpicked for a dangerous mission that decides the fate of mankind. I guess it's worth a play through if you played the original, if not then play the original instead, so far I'm not really enthuastic from all the changes that they made.

Wait, I'm not sure I understand. Say that on your first run through the game you take the Chaos path. You're saying that during this route Alex tells you that she comes from the future where you're successful in the Chaos route and this route fucks up everything. So instead of going through with the Chaos route from the original Strange Journey, you follow an alternate Chaos path? And it follows similar reasonings for the other two endings?

Is that what you're saying?

Where should I start playing?

When I played I moved from standard to expert when I just started becoming so overleveled from playing through each sector and then the corresponding floor in the womb. The new commander sub apps range from useless to too good. There's basically no downside to taking all the commander auto-skills since they have a chance to activate every turn. I guarantee that there will be reviewers that give this a worse score than the original for petty things like it having no english dub instead of actual problems that this version has.


She tells you that the route that you're on will just cause the Schwarzwelt to appear again and that everything gets fucked. You have to finish the new dungeon to gain access to the new ending. You can still get the old endings.

I think SMT4 wouldn't have been so bad if they actually cut out the unnecessary parts and adapted more of Kaneko's draft instead of 2 volumes of it then write some NuPersona tier story as a follow up.


Up to sector B now since I haven't had much time to play and I did find the lack of Sub App slots strange, that, and free healing at the Red Sprite.

Otherwise commander skills isn't too bad so far considering 4/4A had demon whisper, ideally it wouldn't be as broken but Atlus tends to break things in remakes/ports.


I wouldn't bother with the games press as they actually think that SMT is the dark souls of persona.

>What made that one great?

You mean SJ? The original was a good dungeon crawler that, while having some bullshit here and there, was challenging and tense. The concept is interesting and is probably my second favorite in the entire series.

>What makes this version bad?

For the past couple of remakes Atlus seems to be afraid of challenging their players. This trend continues in the new version of SJ. You could argue that some of the changes are just for QoL (bar telling you how much health a demon has, demon skill picks, installation of sub apps outside of safe areas) but there are some changes that are blatantly in because people complained that the game was too hard for them. Many of the new sub apps that are available rather early and their abilities are one example. Dropping the sickbay cost at the red sprite, removing sub-app install sizes, and allowing for one save outside of terminals and making them now only useful for returning to the ship quickly in the field are some others off the top of my head.

Another thing are the new endings and Alex. Alex is a pretty meh as a boss, **the first fight you can actually win against her has her prolonging it by dropping your accuracy, using some single and multi-hit physical attacks, and then countering if you miss an attack, so if you don't have dekunda or a spell that raises accuracy it can become a long and boring fight* but the fact that the player is flat-out told that the original endings will only lead to you inevitably losing makes me wonder why you can still get them. Being told that only serves to make Alex and the new endings she is involved in more important. I'd complain about the new character art and all the DLC it has too but those have been known since it was first shown.

Thing is though, Doi's concept art is much better than the final product which makes me think it's Atlus that wants him to design the demons in a particular way.


fd8c6e No.14799363


those were by guest artists, i'm taking about the dude doing the designs for IV:Final and Deep Strange Journey (and probably V). Something about his drawings is just off, i'm not sure what.

But speaking of designs in IV that were kinda nice:

Sanat looks pretty cool as a "Chaos King", but that's just not Sanat Kumara, you know what i mean?

Asmodeus is kinda cool, but he has the problem, like many of the guest artist designs, of being too detailed for its own sake.

Kentauros, if nothing else, seems like a unique take on "part-horse, part-man"

I like Napaea's colors, but i'm not really feeling that overall "candy"-look

Koga Saburo is alright

Yeah, Minotaur is pretty excellent.

Chemtrail is okay, but IMO should have had a little more airplane aspects to it.

Yamato Takeru is pretty cool, like a robot version of that kind of design that that demons like Take-Mikazuchi had on the SNES. You could as why Yamato is a robot, but why is Kaneko's Fafnir?


i actually liked Lucifer's second form in IV, but i can kinda see it as a bad design for Lucifer

I doubt it as if he did then the final product would be more like the concept art.

Then taking into account the 5 designs in SJR with Zeus and Demeter being plain awful, I get the feeling Atlus is telling Doi how the demon should look like instead of letting him design it his way.

fd8c6e No.14799451



yeah, loli demeter…

there is a time and place for lolis, but the goddess of (earth's) fertility is probably not one of them. at least not in a series that until recently tried to stay somewhat faithful to mythology.

>I get the feeling Atlus is telling Doi how the demon should look like instead of letting him design it his way.

i just hope he keeps releasing his original concept art.

8ec5df No.14799513


Demeter just looks odd since she is meant to be Zeus's older sister, which is even said in game by him and taking the mythos into consideration where they have a child, it just looks weird.

I remember Doi saying he wanted her to look youthful but there are ways to do that without making her a loli.

I'm curious about the concept art for SJR now and how different it is, we might get one for 5 but I'm guessing nothing for SJ.

So with SMTV being developed exclusivley for Switch and Persona Q2 being developed for 3DS, I was thinking about the possibility of SMT getting into Super Smash Bros.

After all, SMT has been with Nintendo for a long time, ever since the Famicom days. (Until Nintendo fucked up with the N64 and pushed all their third parties over to Sony, anyways.)

I personally think Jack Frost would be a good rep, maybe throw in some Jack Bros shit to fill out his moveset, making him a good rep for SMT as a whole, not singling out any one game.

Or maybe since Persona Q 2 is going to be based around P5, maybe they will port P5 to the Switch and have Joker be the rep.

Would be kind of lame, but at least then they will probably put Rivers in the Desert into the soundtrack.

Anyways, do you think its possible that SSB will have a SMT rep, and if so, what rep do you think they will go with?

d00e2c No.14801025


I think an SMT rep is pretty likely to happen due to new smash releases always grasping on straws when it comes to getting new characters in. I give it a 60%-70% chance to happen.

I think the rep would either be the Jack Bros, Jack Frost, or Demi-Fiend or maybe even Finn from smt4, hopefully never Nanashi from smt4a. I would hurt myself it that last one were to happen.

I agree but I never liked the Lucifer character. In the original MT, he was basically demon Jesus while the first SMT had him say that he used to be one with YHVH. It is like the Devil can't just be evil anymore. The writer of Devil Man ruined the perfect ending to his manga to push this "God is the true villain" thing even the first manga demonstrated that Demons truly can not co-exist with humanity and God was ultimately to purge the Demons. I really want to see another take on abandoning the Law and Chaos paradigm without the whole "I'm the strongest protagonist because Null-All even if my predecessor killed God and I'm sucking Lucifer's cock." (this is actually the fanbase's fault but whatever). The problem with the Law-Chaos is who is in power. Look at the faggots in the MSM like the Women's March and BLM thinking that they are fighting "the Man".

As shit as SJR is especially with the new endings retconning the original with happier replacements, it is still leagues better that the shitshow that was 4/4A.

Atlus could've adapted Kaneko's 8 volume draft into 2 games by removing the filler and refining previous mechanics but instead they chose to loosely adapt only 2 volumes, introduce smirk, removing defense and have a haphazard story that is missing chunks of lore and backstory that explained in game events.

SMT4A was an opportunity to fix this, adapt more of Kaneko's draft but instead they decided to tell a generic friendship is magic story that Hashino would be proud of, still didn't balance the game by adding defense back and fucked the already fucked up lore by having deities not even resemble their mythos and rewriting it to make even less sense.

I can't wait for the eventual port to the Switch or whatever new console where instead of doing the proper thing and combine both games by rewriting all of it to match Kaneko's 8 volume draft they add an out of place waifu character with 1 additional dungeon that fucks up the original already badly adapted story.

>It is like the Devil can't just be evil anymore

SMT is all about moral grey area, there is no good or bad, right or wrong decision, just choosing whatever flavor of fucking over humanity that you personally prefer. I am also beyond sick and fucking tired of very clear cut good guy/bad guy plots, having the conflict be a disagreement between two or more sides with their own good points and bad points is far more interesting and a big part of why I got into SMT in the first place.


They turned the story into generic shonen garbage but with gore. Friendship power bullshit has no place in an SMT game of all things where a series staple is you killing your allies over ideological differences. Gameplay was pretty good though, I don't mind the absence of a defense stat that much.

>I don't see what this "friendship power"meme is coming from unless you intentionally choose that side

I'd say having that option at all is unfitting in an SMT game. It might have been less obnoxious if it wasn't just a binary choice between killing all of your friends or accepting that friendship is magic.

a126de No.14806817


As I gather, the game's narrative heavily discourages the Dagda route. All dialogue options associated with it involve being an edgelord dick, you're constantly chewed out for choosing the route, the one person in your party who should stand with you either way (Toki) tries to kill you like the others for no real reason, and the final fight with YHVH gets loads harder due to the fact Flynn only gets 1 person as backup when it switches to his party as compared to 3 on the POWER OF FRIENDSHIP route. Which means that whenever YHVH uses Authorative Stance Flynn and Satan lose their entire turn no matter what.

>I am also beyond sick and fucking tired of very clear cut good guy/bad guy plots, having the conflict be a disagreement between two or more sides with their own good points and bad points is far more interesting and a big part of why I got into SMT in the first place.

And I'm sick of faggot moral relativists saying things like terrorists are a result of poverty or American imperialism or whatever. And that wasn't even my point. SMT's Lucifer is literally just Demon Jesus. DeSu's 8th day for the Demon King ending had you reunite everyone and be a complete moralfag. The unrelated example of the Devilman manga is how a perfectly tragedic ending was ruined to continue the story. It didn't matter if God was in the wrong when Satan made the same mistake. In the latest manga, humanity and demons joined forces to fight the true enemy, God. That same manga, the protagonist, Devilman Lady, was able to save the humans which were absorbed by the turtle demon. The same demon who forced Devilman to kill a little girl and many other humans to defeat him. For the Devilman, it is more about forcing the story to continue but my point is making Lucifer to a straight up good guy is a lazy way to give him depth.

BTW: I didn't play SMT4 or 4/A so don't take this as praise for those games although I did like the idea that they brought up how Lucifer and YHYV used to be one entity again.

Keep in mind the "God" in SMT is (((YHVH))). The SMT franchise is one big metaphorical redpill on Zionism (i.e. Jewish global domination).

Lucifer is charismatic because that's how he manipulates people. But yes, Lucy and YHVH both stem from the same cancer. The red pill may be hard to swallow, but once you do, everything makes sense.

It really kind of is, but not for any of the reasons posted here. It's almost exactly the same game as the original, but a little easier, which is inevitable as they give you more resources and mechanics to work with.

How would they do that with an MMO? Would it be like playing timed chess with other players? I don't think I'd like that.

Anyway, real-time is the master race of combat. Most turn-based games require no timing or spacing skill from the player, and severely limit the number of foes engaged at a time.

There has been other turn based MMOs, I can't remember its name but years ago I remember playing one where you had a party of around 6+ members and would fight enemies of around the same party size in turn based combat. There's games like Dofus/Wakfu which are also turned based.

i think it's because demons are assigned to the clans that fit them most, so Nyarlathotep is a Vile/Heretic God, but the alignments are then assigned regardless of whether some of the demons fall outside of that alignment.


That's the second one though.

People will generally tell you to start from either Nocturne or Digital Devil Saga. Nocturne is the closest to an honest to good SMT experience and is fairly challenging enough for those who play it for the first time. Digital Devil Saga is a more traditional style JRPG in that you don't recruit demons and your party members have fixed roles, but you can further customize each one of them through the Mantra system.

From there on, you can go anywhere you want to. Rule of thumb is that pretty much all PS2 games are pretty good, SMT1 and 2 can feel rather dated but are still pretty solid games, if… never ever unless you can read moon, Devil Survivor is a pretty great SRPG, and 2 is okay as well but vastly inferior to the first one. Strange Journey is very damn good and very challenging with a very atmospheric soundtrack that's different from every other SMT game. 4 is trash talked in these threads because they introduce shit changes to gameplay (fuck smirking, no def stat, demons are either squishy as fuck or run out of MP too soon, you can fucking oneshot bosses after a certain point cos fuck balance) and many other questionable and downright stupid developments. Apoc fixes some of those issues but not enough to make it a good SMT game. Regardless, I still had my fair share of enjoyment with them; approach at will only after you've played a fair share of the other SMTs. There's also some shout outs to Persona 1 and 2 because they're closer to the SMT style than the new Persona style, check them when you're interested.

Also, don't forget to play Synchronicity AKA Jack Bros 2 because it's pretty fucking good.

>Thinking of getting into it by playing the first released title

SMT 1 has an interesting problem in that even though it tells you where to go, you have no idea where that place is. There are no signs on any buildings, it doesn't give you the name of the building on the world map or even when you get close to it, nor did they even give you the name of the building you are in on the dungeon map. For example the heroine gets kidnapped and they find out she is going to be executed at the plaza, so you waste time searching every building in the city until something happens, which also means you could enter the wrong building and get assfucked by high level demons. Still really fun though, once you get into demon fusing it becomes really addicting.
