In Japan, the standard edition of Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne HD Remaster will cost 5,980 yen, and the limited edition will cost 13,980 yen. The limited edition includes a copy of the game, the 106-page magazine “Ayakashi Special Final Issue,” two-disc “New Piano Arrange” and “Rare Soundtrack” CD set (37 tracks), “Amala Tenrinko” aroma lamp, and a vortex case. Pre-orders will open on July 21 at 12:00 JST.

Atlus also announced it will host a “Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne HD Remaster Announcement Commemoration – Megami Tensei Live Stream” featuring live gameplay on July 23 at 19:30 JST. You will be able to watch it on YouTube and Twitter.
