Firstly this game originally came out for the Sega Saturn in 1997 & never got released or translated for us over here. This is a classic JRPG dungeon crawler. If you have played any SMT games you will know what to expect. Plays in a similar way to Shin Megami Tensei Strange Journey for the DS. Except auto mapping can be switched on. This is old style JRPG dungeon crawler with stats galore. Good story best bit is also has voice overs in english for most of the dialogue. For 3ds version for this port some new demons all translated & the voice over in english. Also has a street pass function as well to swap coins to buy demons. This is the daddy of SMT games so this alone is worth it. That & the hours you can sink into the game as well.
with number 4 getting re released as well the 3ds is finally getting some good games.
