When the first game(s) were released? like the shin megami tensei ones (not persona) or even just the concept for the games?
The first game with the title Shin Megami Tensei was around 1993 I believe
But I'm pretty sure there was a title before and it was only called megami tensei(I think), but I
Don't think it was developed by atlus
Ok so I was right, the game is called Megami Tensei, it was developed by Namco in 1987
And the first game was inpired by a book of the same name, both was pretty popular in Japan
Wasn't it something like digital megami tensei or something like that? I think there was digital in the name
Shin megami Tensei If- PC 1985.
Is all here in the wiki.
But the first Megami Tensei was inspired in Digital devil story:Megami Tensei, a light novel (i think) and the story was a sort of "what if..." Within the light novel's plot.
Later, atlus bought the title (i think again) and created the first Shin Megami Tensei, wich came out in 1992
What do you think?
