Shin Megami Tensei Side-Scroller Metroidvania is Now Available For Download From Atlus

Go to Tokyo instead of Castle Dracula.

Atlus put out a trailer last week for a Shin Megami Tensei side-scroller that a lot of people thought was just a cute promo for Strange Journey Redux — because the trailer said that is was fake. To our surprise, the game is real and Shin Megami Tensei: Synchronicity Prologue is now available for download.

The Metroidvania starts Jack Frost and Pyro Jack, two of the series’ most recognizable creatures. You’ll lead them through a fun non-linear journey through a setting inspired by Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey Redux. You’ll have to fight other demons with fire and ice attacks, explore a decently-sized world and run into some new characters.

If you want to play Synchronicity Prologue, it’s currently only available for PC, but luckily a shoe could run it. It’s also in Japanese, but if you’re remotely familiar with the Metroidvania genre, it’s not hard to figure out what’s going on.

You can download it now via Atlus, but only until December 24.
