It was today in 2009 that Demon’s Souls came to North America, introducing a new kind of action-RPG games that would challenge players to survive brutal, yet rich gothic worlds with the Souls series.
The Shin Megami Tensei series is a staple of Japanese roleplaying game design. Where other established franchises have moved away from their roots or ventured into new genres and mechanics for evolving player expectation, many of the SMT games have...
It was today that this bizarre adventure hit North American shelves and entered our dreams and nightmares with its punishing difficulty and unique take on fast-paced puzzle solving.

It shouldn't work. Persona 4 Dancing All Night is probably the largest deviation from the core concept a franchise has ever received, yet somehow, it manages to be everything fans could possibly have hoped for.

Atlus unveiled two new videos and an official release date for Persona 4: Dancing All Night, as Hatsune Miku will join the game as DLC.
The Japanese version of Persona 4: Dancing All Night features a special trailer for Persona 5.
The game formerly known as Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem strays even further from both RPG franchises in this E3 2015 trailer.
