    There was an interview with the localization team on Siliconera this morning. The lead translator said there are "no plans" for localizing 2, though I imagine if this sells well, there would be no reason for them not to do it (they've already done one on iOS, so they'd have familiarity with the coding medium).

    The interview was pretty good, head over to Siliconera and check it out.

    Game Impressions

    I wanted to put my impressions here now that Shaun Musgraves fantastic in depth review spent my money on SMT. I highly encourage you read it: http://toucharcade.com/2014/03/24/shin-megami-tensei-review/

    I can't really add much to what he wrote. His review/overview was spot on as far as I can tell and if you only read one review, read Shauns. That said, I'll leave my personal perspective here for whatever it's worth. I've never played the game before, nor have I played any of the games in the series so my impressions are coming from someone who is completely new to the game.

    The most impressive aspect of the game so far is the tone and story the game sets up for you. I really like the dark tone set and gives off a mature atmosphere. I can tell the story will be one of the driving points for me to continue playing.

    The interface is surprisingly easy to navigate and I never felt lost or like I was blindly running around.

    The flow is basically walking around town in the overhead perspective which shows a colored meter indicating the likelihood of running into a demon - with red being imminent danger inevitable. Entering buildings and encountering people or demons switches you to a first person perspective.

    The demon encounters really set this game apart, in a typical encounter you have options like 'talk' and 'summon' along with the typical 'fight', 'escape', 'defend', and 'item' choices. Talking allows conversation which can lead to them joining or giving you items or loot like cash or weapons. It can also easily lead to a battle if the demon doesn't like what you say. So far this seems like a bit of a guessing game, but in Shauns review, he says there are some consistency there, amounting to memorizing what specific types of demons like and dislike.

    The saving is what concerned me the most. Thanks to Shauns review, that concern was put to rest. So far (45 min in), you can always return home to save and the game also saves where you left off if you need to take a call or fully close the app, functioning just like a quick save.

    That's about it so far, I've really enjoyed my time and I can't wait to play some more. :)

    i'm at 40hours of gameplay and i'm just at middle of the game... great game i can say, better then any final fantasy game i played, and i played almost all of them
     
  11. I'm sure it's been mentioned before, but I would love to see this game universal, then I would buy it for sure!

    if you play from an iphone as well then you should buy it, the portrait mode is really cool, and after few hours of playing you get used with how the game looks, only 30% of gameplay screen its used in portrait mode...
    its first time i play a SMT game and i like it more then most rpg i played, and i played alot of rpg's

    if you have gba4ios then you can try it first, the room name i think is 'smt (japan)'
    its japan only, but at least you get to see how it is, it may not fit you
    i think this game will look v bad on an big screen(ipad..,) 'cos even on small screen of an iphone its blurr sometimes, its not all clean...and this playing in portrait mode, if i switch to landscape its even more blurry... on the big screen it will look even worst

    No plans. The original App is about two years old in Japan. It's a minor miracle the US side was able to get the Japan side to work on inserting the localization, let alone anything more than that.

    anyone finds this game a bit 2easy? i'm at the point where my partners , law and chaos heros have gone on their on path... and i'm left just with my girl partner( she's level 59 and me/primary character i'm level 60) but now i can summon 4 demons and the most common enemy i meet are lvl 30-60 and they come in group of 5-7 and still i have no problem killin them, even with bosses i use auto-battle and i never get killed ... except some really big dungeons with tricky one-way dors that are easy to get lost everything else seems too easy... maybe my level and stats are too high? i grind alot to level up... my defense is +100 and my atack is +150 ...
    i think i completed like 60-70% of the game, have +50h of gameplay
