Shin Megami Tensei III Nocturne HD Remaster launches on May 25 in the West for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and Steam
Atlus West has announced that Shin Megami Tensei III Nocturne HD Remaster will launch in North America and Europe on May 25 for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and a newly announced Steam version. The console versions of the game will be available at retail, in addition to digital storefronts, for $49.99.
Atlus states that the Western version of Shin Megami Tensei III Nocturne HD Remaster will include all of the updates that have come to the Japanese release, which includes some performance additions alongside the ability to select skill transferal when fusing demons. As previously detailed, this new remaster of the game includes newly added voiced dialogue in both English & Japanese, a suspend-save option, and updated models & backgrounds.
Nocturne HD also supports EFIGS subtitle options for all consoles, with the Steam version also supporting Japanese, Korean, and Traditional Chinese subtitles.
Atlus also shared a message from Director Kazuyuki Yamai, which you can find below.
Digital Deluxe Edition and DLC
Atlus also revealed a Digital Deluxe version of the game available on all platforms for $69.99. Those who pre-order this version of the game will get access to the game four days early, on May 21. The Digital Deluxe Edition also includes the Maniax Pack DLC, which adds Dante from the Devil May Cry™ series, alongside cheat DLC and an extra BGM set.
Atlus did not detail the pricing of DLC elements outside of their inclusion in the Digital Deluxe Edition.

Editor's Note: Oddly enough, while the console versions of Shin Megami Tensei III Nocturne HD Remaster include the Chronicle Pack (which adds Raidou in place of Dante) in the base game, Atlus states it will be a free DLC for those who purchase the Steam version. We're not precisely sure, but that may mean that the default Steam version is more like the original PS2 Japanese-only release of SMT Nocturne, which did not include Dante nor Raidou nor other elements like the Labyrinth of Amala.
