Shin Megami Tensei III Nocturne HD Remaster will include updated visuals and balanced systems for this new release. However, we aren’t sure if Dante from Devil May Cry will be included or not. Nocturne is actually an updated version of Shin Megami Tensei III released globally; Atlus sure loves updated their games.

Shin Megami Tensei III Nocturne HD Remaster will have players take on the role of a boy who has found himself facing the apocalypse. After receiving new powers from Lucifer, he must survive in what is known as the Vortex World.

The game features turn-based combat with a unique Press Turn system. This allows players to exploit actions in battles to receive an extra turn.

Shin Megami Tensei III Nocturne HD Remaster is being released 17 years after the original PlayStation 2 release.
