Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne

Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne will be available for PlayStation 3 via the PS2 Classics selection on PlayStation Network today.

Atlus teased a new PlayStation Network Shin Megami Tensei release today on Reddit yesterday, and an ESRB rating this morning confirmed it to be Nocturne.

Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne is the third main entry in the Shin Megami Tensei series. It first launched for PS2 in Japan in February 2003. An updated version called Nocturne Maniax, on which the western release is based, launched in 2004. In 2008, a final version, Nocturne Maniax Chronicle, launched in Japan, featuring Raidou Kuzunoha from the Devil Summoner series in place of the game’s original guest character Dante (from Devil May Cry).
