A Stranger Journey Back
In Strange Journey Redux, you play as a brave United Nations soldier investigating a spatial anomaly called the Schwarzwelt—a dome of dark energy that threatens to consume the world. Inside, you’ll find it home to a nightmare mirror of our own Earth, populated with demons dying to meet you. The game touts brand-new illustrations by Masayuki Doi, updated visuals, UI tweaks, and more to make this journey back into the Schwarzwelt… even stranger.
Additional Story Content and a Brand-New Character
You won’t be retreading the same nightmarish path as before because a brand-new character named Alex will play a major role in how the story unfolds. Much about her is a mystery, but there is one thing you know for sure: she’s got a bone to pick with you. Joining her are new demons you might recognize from other SMT entries, new endings, and a new dungeon to discover.

But do be aware that your demon passwords from the original will not work, so there's no means of transferring your end game teams between versions.
This new version features an animated opening and voice acted dialog. However, Atlus didn't localize the audio for English so this game is "subs" only. It seems like a strange choice since all the other SMT games on 3DS have English voice acting. Another strange choice is that there isn't any 3D in this game. Everything is displayed in 2D.
It's hard to recommend this version to owners of the original, but it's a great game on it's own.
In Shin Megami Tensei Strange Journey Redux, the battle animations are improved and I don't believe the original game had animated cutscenes. And as a lot of people know, there's lots of new stuff that wasn't included in the original game. There's some great new demons like Volvo, Kali, and Zaou-Gongen. There's also new equipment, which, from what I've seen, is a big improvement. Anyone remember the Meteor Dragoon? In the original game, the Meteor Dragoon was the strongest gun in terms of Gun power, but even though its skill set included some Almighty skills, it wasn't that great overall. Now, in this game, we have even stronger guns with even better skill sets. It just so happens that there's a shotgun in this game called the Aftokratoras. While it doesn't have as much Gun power as another gun in this game, its skill get is great. All of the skills the Aftokratoras provides are heavy skills and the set as a whole is more elementally diverse than other guns' skill sets. And you don't even have to make it in the lab. You find the Aftokratoras in a treasure box. Granted, it's tough to get to, but it's worth it when you do get it.
Another thing Strange Journey Redux provides are new apps for the Demonica, including a new Sub-App that lets you find out where a teleporter will take you by touching its icon on the map. I sure could have used this in my first two playthroughs of the game, I'll tell you what. But, one thing I don't get is this new Main App called Floor Search. There's a new dungeon in the game called the Womb of Grief. If you're going for any of the new endings in this game, you have to clear this dungeon. In other parts of the game, there are invisible pathways, but you can walk on those just fine. But, in certain areas like the Womb of Grief's Sixth Sphere, there are invisible paths that you can only walk on if you have the Floor Search app. Why you need this app to navigate certain invisible paths when you can walk on other invisible paths just fine is beyond me.
Going back to the part about the Womb of Grief, yes, we have a new dungeon in this game. Like I said, it's optional unless you're going for the new endings. And yes, there are also new story routes and new endings in this game. Basically, these are new and improved versions of Strange Journey's original endings. I haven't seen all of them yet, but the ones I have seen are better than their predecessors. If you decide to go for these new endings, be warned. The Womb of Grief is not without its challenges. If everything goes well, though, you'll gain access to another new dungeon, the Empyrean Ascent, and you'll be on your way to fighting a new final boss. If you're going straight for this new final boss, then the only thing you need to worry about are the teleporter mazes on the Empyrean Ascent's Upper Layer. Once you figure out how those work, you shouldn't have too much trouble. But, if you happen to be on a New Game +, there's an EX mission you can get in the Empyrean Ascent's Lower Layer. Accepting this mission will allow you access to parts of the Lower Layer that you can't go in otherwise. The treasure box containing the Aftokratoras I mention earlier is somewhere in these parts. As for the new final boss, she's actually a pretty fun boss, but only if you manage to come prepared.
Now, am I without gripes with this game? No. My biggest gripe with this game is the Demon Fusion. It works like other games in the series, which is fine, but there's no Fusion Search function. Or rather, there is, but it's not near as good as the one in the Shin Megami Tensei IV games. Strange Journey's Fusion Search works like this: You pick a demon in your party, then look at the list of demons it could make by fusing with one of the other demons in your party. The Fusion Search in the Shin Megami Tensei IV games had a lot more search options, including an Include Compendium option. Basically, without the Include Compendium option, you're limited to fusing demons actually in your party. This makes it more difficult to fuse demons with ideal skill sets and that's difficult already. When attempting to create a demon through fusion, it only inherits certain skills from the fusion material demons. To gain full control over what skills the fused demon will have, you need to use a Demon Source, which you get from demons that have been fully analyzed, and even then, your options are limited to the fused demon's innate skills, what it's already inheriting from the fusion material demons, and the skills the Demon Source you're using provides. Now, your options for skills to give a demon made through fusion are always limited, but it's better in other games than it is here. But, I'll admit it could be worse. At least it's not like in Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers where you have no control over your demons' skill sets at all and if a demon you're making through fusion does inherit a skill or two, I don't know what it could have been other than pure luck. Oh, and when you make a demon through fusion in Strange Journey, absolutely do not forget to register its custom information into the Compendium or you'll be stuck with that demon's base information. I had to start the game over one time because I made the mistake of not registering my demons' custom information because I thought it would be saved automatically like every other Shin Megami Tensei game I've played. Also, due to the lack of search options, if you're trying to fuse a specific demon, you'll have to look up a fusion chart online to see what demon combinations can make whatever kind of demon you're looking to make. Then, you'll need your fusion material demons' levels to be as close to the level of the demon you're trying to make as possible. This isn't that bad, but I still feel the need to point that out. And lastly, if you use a Demon Source, it'll be hard to get another one like it. Here's an example: Let's say you use a B Frost Source in a demon fusion. Once you do, you won't get another one unless you have Black Frost in your party and even then, whether he gives you a new B Frost Source or not is left entirely up to chance. The same thing applies to all other demons in this game.
Well, I can't think of anything else to say, so I'll end things here. Like I said in the beginning, Shin Megami Tensei Strange Journey Redux, while not as good as the Shin Megami Tensei IV games, is still a great game. If you're thinking about giving this game a try, you definitely should.
Strange Journey was a game originally made as a 'Internationale' version of Shin Megami Tensei, so its also rather odd that the only voice acting in this game is Japanese. Your mileage will very with the new artwork not done by the classic SMT artist as well.
The new stuff in this game is worth checking out even if you have played the classic and its also a good old school RPG. You'll need to be real confident with slow turn based rpg's but it does have an easy mode. If you're into dungeon crawlers that are heavy on the 'crawl' part, then you should enjoy this.

La primicia sigue siendo la misma de los clásicos de Super Famicom: navegar en calabozos en una vista subjetiva en primera persona, enfrentarte a demonios sacados de todas las mitologías y religiones del mundo, negociar con ellos para que se unan a ti y después administrarlos en tu party o bien fusionarlos, explotar debilidades para ganar turnos extra y hacer mas daño, incrementos y disminuciones de ataque/defensa/evasión (que es estrategia esencial en toda la franquicia MegaTen), y un montón de maneras de personalizar al protagonista con su equipo o la optencion de habilidades pasivas (a traves del traje Demonica).
El nivel gráfico fue mejorado y pulido de una manera bastante agradable, aunque no a tope gráfico de la consola. La música es casi en su totalidad de tipo orquesta sinfónica, muy rimbombante y con cánticos gregorianos masculinas para dotar de cierto dramaticos. Uso de la pantalla táctil se limita a una pantalla extra para ver estadísticas y el mapa del dungeon (a estas alturas ya no se puede esperar usos creativos de una pantalla touch screen normal). Como buen juego portátil me gusta que tenga la opción de salvado rápido para poder disfrutar de sesiones breves, aunque el juego demande sus 60 y tantas horas para acabarlo de buena manera. El mayor atractivo de este remaster es la incursión de nuevos personajes y quest para alargar la duración del juego.
Muy recomendable para amantes de los RPGs japoneses que son difíciles. P.D. El audio viene en japones y con textos en ingles.
El juego es excelente, lo recomiendo mucho si eres fan de la serie, es un poco largo por lo que requiere le dediques tiempo, la historia como siemprebes muy interesante y te hace pensar mucho en las decisiones que tomes por que afectan el final de tu historia. Definitavemte es muy recomendable.
