Atlus is showing the 3DS a lot of love in 2018


Keep the localizations coming

The 3DS isn't going anywhere yet, and Atlus is helping to keep the handheld relevant. As part of today's rapid-fire Nintendo Direct presentation, Atlus brought several bits of news.

First up, there's a demo for Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond the Myth right now on the eShop. It's a good chance to settle in with the game and get an early start, too -- the demo has every character and class open, and your progress will transfer to the full version. You'll be able reach level 10 and play up until the third floor of Yggdrasil. Beyond the Myth is set for an October 17, 2017 launch on 3DS.

Three other role-playing titles are headed to the handheld next year, including The Alliance Alive from The Legend of Legacy studio FuRyu. Daemons went and took over the world of humans and it's time to put a stop to that nonsense with some good old turn-based combat. It's due in early 2018.

There's also Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology, which is coming to 3DS in the West early next year. The expanded port of the time-travel RPG touts new voice-overs, a third timeline with more what-ifs, a new theme song and opening animation from A-1 Pictures, and five new tracks.

Oh, and we've also got Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey Redux in early 2018 as well.

This is an older trailer, but I wouldn't leave Strange Journey hanging. (It was covered in the Direct.) You still playing your 3DS, and more to the point, do any of these upcoming Atlus games speak to you?
