Shin Megami Tensei III Nocturne HD Remaster

Critics Consensus (Play It)

Shin Megami Tensei III Nocturne offers a potent mixture of cosmic horror, JRPG action, and pitch-black comedy. While the game does little to justify the HD Remaster part of its title, its strengths remain evident, and this is an excellent opportunity to relive this JRPG masterpiece on a new generation of consoles.

Another change any RPG fan is sure to fall in love with is the suspend save feature, especially if you’re in the group that plans to purchase the game on the Nintendo Switch. This new addition allows players to save anywhere in the game without needing to find a save point. This makes the trial-and-error parts of the game an almost non-issue, and for Switch fans, it makes the game much easier to play on the go.

Straight up, Shin Megami Tensei III Nocturne HD Remaster could have used more technical improvements. The subtle mechanical changes make it a better game without fundamentally changing it – which is a great thing because Nocturne never needed to be changed. I just wish the “remaster” part had a little more oomph to sway people who might find it dated.

Shin Megami Tensei III Nocturne HD Remaster is a fantastic game at its core, but does little to justify the HD Remaster part of its title. The visuals are improved greatly and being able to choose between Raidou and Dante is nice, but there are few improvements the base game desperately needed like better dungeon design.
