For those who may have missed out on the history of the demonic apocalypse...
Before we begin, a prelude...
It has been thirty years since the now-legendary Toaster,
accompanied by his beloved Paula,
saved the world from the machinations of the hateful Messians
and the warmongering Gaians.
Yet, all is not well.
Several decades after the Great Destruction...
While cultivating the wilderness, fighting off packs of demons,
and through countless deaths, humanity survived...
But people were not strong enough to survive without someone
or something to cling to or rely on...
The Messian religion preached the advent of a savior, gathered
together believers, and built a new city at the site of the Old Cathedral...
This city came to be known as
Welcome back to the world of Shin Megami Tensei.
Where demons are your best friends, and gods are your worst enemies.

Naturally, that meant they proceeded to screw it all up.

The first update will begin within a few days or so, ideally.

improves on SMT1's sadistic gameplay.
Automapping is easier, there is more variety to fusion(such as skill inheritance), dungeon movement is more fluid, combat is better presented, the list goes on and on.
Will it be more difficult, have equally sadistic maps, and the same amazing plot?
Only time will tell.
