No, actually, I'm mistaken--I included it in the Masakado article. I didn't talk about it in JJCAT for that reason.

Bogleech just had a look-see at some Megaten demons and through that I learned that Nirasawa (who did some guest art for IV) died between IV and IVA, which (LTTP) is probably why Medusa was in Apoc for no externally apparent reason.

Since Nirasawa's Lucifer is already in there too, I dunno, I think she might be in there over something like Minotaur because she has boobs. Speaking of what Bogleech was criticizing, emphasizing cleavage on Medusa is the wrong choice because why would she want you looking down there instead of up at her eyes?

Of the guest demons that returned, wasn't Medusa the only one that was kind of shoehorned in, though? ("everything in apoc is shoehorned" yes but you know what I mean) The returnees are Lucy and Merk, who were inevitable, and Tenkai, who at least does something related to who he is, and then Medusa who's just kind of there. Am I forgetting anyone?

Anyways reading Bog's stuff is interesting because he's got his own concept of what makes a design good. I've never seen anyone that happy with IV Medusa, usually because it's just so aggressively not like prior Megaten designs, and he pointed out some things that I can look at now and say, huh, yeah, that is pretty neat actually.

Napaea, who does something related to the plot (in as much as anything Nozomi-related is related to the plot). Also Centaur, who I think was just a random encounter?

Default Kaneko's Crib Notes FIFTY-THREE



So, those demons like "Tenong Cut" and "Rolwoy"? We know what they are now.

The secret? Shigeru Mizuki.

The actual names and origins of those two and tons more here. Seriously, there is just an exorbitant amount of stuff behind that link.

I just realized the SMT3 battle theme has lyrics. I thought it was just unintelligible nonsense. Prepare to have the game ruined forever now that you can hear this clearly every time:



Quote:
I'm the bug inside you !
I have your back to the wall !
Survive the fall from grace
Drink of the wine of the wrath of god !

One more god rejected!
I'm the bug inside you
One more god rejected!
I have your back to the wall
One more god rejected!
Survive the fall from grace
You won't oppose the wrath of god !

Fear !
Fear God and give glory to Him !
for the hour of His judgement has come
To you !
Now when the thousand years have expired
Satan will be released
Judgement has come
To you !

The lyrics have never been released so they're only inferred, but some of them are as good as confirmed as they clearly quote Revelation (the last passage in particular is straight from Revelation). Based on vocal rips I can make out "one more god in heaven" instead of "one more god rejected" but I couldn't begin to interpret some of the others!

you get one life stone every day for logging in, and five life stones can be used for a gacha pull to summon a new demon. but since this is smt, sometimes it'll just take your life stones and you get nothing.

Sega is working with a MYSTERY DEVELOPER to create a mobile SMT game.


Full reveal is supposed to be in Akihabara on Friday (probably), with Famitsu bringing the actual details next week.

Quite late to this, but thanks, Peklo!

We will actually be updating the post a little more later today in a push to create a separate page for mobile viewers because apparently the tables we kind of hacked in there wreak havoc on phone browsers and force people to read the JJCAT article. True horror!

You know, a mobile game could potentially be pretty true to the series considering how demon summoning works in a lot of the games, especially if it went in a sorta ARG direction ala Pokemon GO...

But it's just going to be a dumb gacha thing with moe demons, isn't it.

Hey Eirikr!

I just found your tumblr via Bogleech's SMT series. Great stuff!

I've been marathoning SMT IV over the past week to finish it up, so I've got demons on the brain.

I've been dreaming about the possibility of a Megaten ARG ever since I GOT into Megaten and remembered that FFVII: Before Crisis used the phone's camera to generate materia.

I know Megaten is maybe a millionth of a decimal point as popular as Pokemon, but Atlusega is leaving macca on the table not doing a quick Go-like cash grab.

Law Ending: some kind of puzzle or strategy game with a startlingly involved story, no gacha elements

Chaos Ending: true gacha, light on gameplay but comes with LOADS of new demon art (but a not insignificant amount of tiddy)

Neutral Ending: a gacha/rpg formula clone that is actually pretty inoffensive and maybe even fun, if not what we really wanted/needed from the franchise

Dancing All Night Ending: love live clone

The Fanfic That Is Better Than Atlus' Actual Canon: smt arg

It's probably going to be less of an ARG and more of an AaaaaaaRrrGGgh.

I was bored and had a go at filling in the silhouettes:



From left to right: Generic twin-tailed schoolgirl with annoying pet, generic anime protagonist, generic pompadour tough guy, generic anime protagonist mark II (slightly more 'tude variant), schoolgirl eating a giant corndog that is missing a chunk of her neck (the purple parts are supposed to be see-through, right? I didn't know what else to do), generic schoolgirl the sequel, and last but not least, enjoy these promotional tissues, goshujin-sama.

I already love Giant Corndog Girl she's better than Isabeau.

And I'm amused that Generic SG1 has the same hair silhouette as her pet's ears.
