Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey Redux, known as Shin Megami Tensei: Deep Strange Journey in Japan, is a game for the Nintendo 3DS console. It is an updated port of Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey.


The game includes new artwork for the characters, voice acting, animation, new demons, and a new route. 350 demons will be fusable ingame. There is a new character named Alex. The new demons added are: [1]

Zeus (New design) Amon (New design) Anahita (New design)
Demeter (New design) Anat Isis
Ixtab Vasuki Vritra
Kali Kikuri-Hime Cybele
Zaou-Gongen Shaytan Jack Ripper
Thanatos Tsuchigumo Night Stalker
Nadja Nebiros Hypnos
Belial Beelzebub Volvo
Master Therion Mada Mad Gasser
Maria Lucifuge Sandalphon

In addition, some other changes have been made:

  • The introduction of difficulty modes: Casual, Standard, Expert, and Impossible. Impossible is only available on a New Game Plus.
  • Macca is no longer required to heal in the sickbay.
  • There is no limit on the number of sub-apps equipped at once.
  • A new sub-app, "March to Death", was added, preventing a game over if the main character is petrified or killed as long as allied demons can fight. It is available at the same time as all other sub-apps, but cannot be developed on Impossible.
  • Commander Skills have been added, being a MC-exclusive command that are unlocked by equipping the proper sub-app. Some are used like regular skills that take up the MC's turn but also have a cooldown to limit how often they can be used, while others have a chance to activate based on the MC's Luck stat, the amount of turns since it last activated, and some additional parameters based on the skill.


The game is part of the 25th anniversary of the Shin Megami Tensei series and is being developed along with Shin Megami Tensei V.

AtlusUSA announced the localization of Shin Megami Tensei: Deep Strange Journey along with Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond the Myth and Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology. However, the localization team decided to re-name the game as Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey Redux. In a PR e-mail, it was revealed that it won't have English voice acting unlike the other two titles for localization.
