Greetings RPG fans,
Today we're highlighting a game that could spell success for Microsoft's XBox in Japan and a surge of interest in their XBox Live service. Shin Megami Tensei has been a much beloved series by RPG fans and the Persona games have been celebrated as a refreshing break from the standard sword-'n-sorcery titles we all know and love.
Shin Megami Tensei Nine will not only be an XBox exclusive, its entirely online via XBox Live. While many of us think this is a promising prospect for Atlus and Microsoft, i'm sure many of you have your differing opinions. I invite you to discuss this at length on our message boards. In the meantime, John has cooked up a wonderful preview of the game with a little translation help from our own import news mastermind, Chris Winkler. I've gone ahead and done a gallery update to help highlight some of the visuals of this promising new title. Though the game hasn't been announced or our shores, we hope Atlus considers the die-hard MegaTen fans in the 'States. Enjoy!
