Shin Megami Tensei: Synchronicity Prologue

Last week, Atlus released a new trailer for Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey Redux featuring a “fake” side-scrolling starring Jack Frost and Jack O’Lantern. Today, Atlus has released that game, officially titled Shin Megami Tensei: Synchronicity Prologue, as a free download for PC.

Shin Megami Tensei: Synchronicity Prologue was developed by Den-fami Nico Game Magazine’s Ladybug team, which is led by Krobon, who developed the PC game Pharaoh Rebirth+. The same team also developed the KonoSuba: God’s Blessing on this Wonderful World Season 2 Blu-Ray 1 bonus game.
