The Special Edition Persona Q 3DS XL ⊟

It’s very different from past limited edition systems — I like it a lot! The text on the lid translates to ”The Grimoire of Hearts: Personality changes the world,” according to Anime News Network.

This will release as part of a $250 bundle alongside Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth in Japan on June 5. The game’s U.S. release is expected this fall (we likely won’t get the system).

Glorious Shin Megami IV OST box ⊟
I’ve embedded an unboxing of the recently released Shin Megami Tensei IV OST posted by @xanthax after the break. There’s not too much exciting stuff included in the set besides the neat sticker and the five million tracks on the four discs, but this was a great excuse to share this legendary cover that we somehow never posted when it was originally unveiled. It’s so awesome and perfect and I would not mind having that framed as a poster in my office.

Play-Asia still and AmiAmi should still have these in stock.

Shin Megami Tensei coming to iOS in English ⊟

Whoa, finally, a chance to play the first Shin Megami Tensei game in English! And with virtual buttons all over the screen, but oh well. Atlus plans to release Shin Megami Tensei on the App Store March 18, for 8 bucks.

Who else is out there saying “You know that super old RPG we made back in the day? You know, the one with all the text? Let’s translate that and release it. Eight bucks sounds about right.” Nobody. Nobody else is saying that. Atlus is showing everybody how it’s done.

Etrian Odyssey IV for $20, Soul Hackers for $25 ⊟

I know Etrian Odyssey Untold comes out in just a few days, but that doesn’t mean you should pass on an opportunity to fill your 3DS library with more Atlus RPGs. Besides, who knows when we’ll get more from the company…

Shout outs to TheYoungDoyley for the EOIV art. Oh, and here are the Amazon links for the discounted copies of Etrian Odyssey IV and Soul Hackers.
[Update: EOIV is on backorder, but you can still get it for $20 under alternate sellers.]

PSA to all the girls out there ⊟
It’s nonsensical stuff like this bit from Shin Megami Tensei IV that makes Atlus USA one of my favorite in-house localization teams, probably second only to Nintendo of America’s Treehouse group. Speaking of, Jason Schreir has published an excellent profile on that team over at Kotaku — lots of great notes on Mother 3, Animal Crossing, and even Starfy.

TinyCast 003 - Mega Man from the Future!

Tiny Cartridge • TinyCast

We have a third episode for our podcast! This is a thing now, our podcast. We hope you’ve been enjoying this experiment. In this Tinycast, we once again chat about everyone’s favorite game Animal Crossing: New Leaf, but for just a few minutes and only after we discuss Shin Megami Tensei IV, Mega Man, Attack of the Friday Monsters, Level-5 worries, and all of last week’s eShop announcements.

Christian and Fran lead the conversation this time because both JC and I forgot to do our homework and play Shin Megami Tensei IV — blame New Leaf (and I guess new babies, on JC’s end). You can download the episode here and read show notes after the break.

Prepare to link up…

Shin Megami Tensei IV: Adventures of a butt

Naming your Shin Megami Tensei IV character “a butt” is the gift that keeps on giving. If you don’t mind totally ruining the drama, and if you are twelve. Which I don’t, and am.

Important note: while you can name your character “a butt,” the game will not allow you to name him “a poop.” I learned this the hard way, and I don’t want any of you to feel the sting of that discovery.

Shin Megami Tensei IV’s “Unclean Ones’ Country” trailer

I’ve been advised that this trailer may spoil part of the game, I guess. I don’t really think so, but if you’re way too sensitive about spoilers, be advised.

If you’re not that concerned about it, you should also read Jeremy Parish’s excellent review, which describes levels of depth I assumed were in the game after the parts I’ve played, but haven’t come close to experiencing yet. I really need to put down Animal Crossing long enough to get into it.

By the way, can I mention how consistently good USGamer has been so far? I’ve enjoyed literally everything I’ve read there so far, and I’m a picky jerk about game writing.
