A host of new content is coming to the classic RPG.
The PS2 era was quite an amazing one when you look back at it. A wide variety of franchises and genres were created or refined there, and there’s many gems that remain stuck there, unfortunately. But one of those gems is making its grand return when it was announced that Shin Megami Tensei 3: Nocturne would be coming to the PS4 and Switch in the form of a new remaster. The RPG is something of a legendary entry in the fabled SMT series, and it seems this remaster is getting some extra things.
As detailed from Atlus, the game will have several additions both as DLC and side activities. On the DLC side, we have some things that were known such as the new Merciful difficulty for those who want to sit back and enjoy the story as well as the Maniax pack that includes the original Dante from Devil Mary Cry guest character (in the remaster, that role is replaced by a character from another SMT subseries). There are also dedicated maps for getting new items to help you out, as well as soundtrack packs from every other mainline entry in the Shin Megami Tensei series. Side activities also include new minigames, quick save, new game+ and the ability to revisit boss fights. You can see a full list as translated and transcribed by Gematsu through here.
Keep in mind that this is referring to the Japanese release of the game, which will be October 29th for both platforms. It’s unclear if the DLC will be included with the western release, which will come sometime in 2021.
