It’s close to the middle of 2018, and there really isn’t a major JRPG release that wowed and challenged me since Xenoblade Chronicles 2. Yes, there was Ni no Kuni 2 which we reviewed a while back, but it isn’t as gripping and as challenging as I thought it would be despite its highlights.
Then Nintendo and Atlus (and Sega, technically) decide to release the English version of Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey Redux without much fanfare. I honestly didn’t know about this until late last week.
That’s a crying shame because it’s the best JRPG right now and a perfect entry point for people who are too scared or daunted by the Shin Megami Tensei slew of JRPGs.
