It's the 25th anniversary so who wants to bet one of these is a remake of I&II?
I avoid online multiplayer because my brain still works.

Oh sweet Mary, that'd be the best! Especially on the 3DS. Then I could ditch the mobile version post-haste...I mean, they never even released the second game in English. :(

Or the original two Megami Tensei games.

But the OG Digital Devil Story was by Namco in 1987.  Although, yeah, Atlus released those first two Namco DDS games as Kyuyaku Megami Tensei on Super Famicom. 

1992's Shin Megami Tensei was when Atlus took over the series and it became what it is now. 

What would be cool for the anniversary is a packaging of I, II, and If...

I'd actually forgotten about that - but if Atlus can re-release them on phones, surely they have the rights to them now?
