Shin Megami Tensei Devil Hunter ZERO Released


The latest addition to the hit Megami Tensei series, Shin Megami Tensei Devil Hunter ZERO, has been revealed. The good news is that it is an RPG, but as for the bad news…


Index, the company which recently dissolved Atlus, has announced the game will shortly be exclusively available on one of Japan’s top social networking/gaming sites, GREE.

Devil Hunter Zero joins Persona 3 Social as the latest SNS outing for the franchise, which has still yet to appear on a modern console.

Curiously, long-time fans of the series are less than enthusiastic about this new direction for the franchise.

The worst case scenario looks increasingly likely – Catherine fails to sell because it is not an RPG, Index declares game development on consoles to be too risky, and what remains of Atlus is subsequently consigned to making awful mobile phone games until the Megami Tensei franchise’s popularity is spent, at which point the Atlus “brand” is dissolved into Index’s mobile game division.
