Shin Megami Tensei Network

This week in the spirit of schedules being messy SMTN is crossing over with David and the Demon Appreciation Podcast. We talk new consoles, the video game awards, and gush over Hyrule Warriors Age of Calamity. We both hope you have a great week and enjoy the podcast. What are you thankful of from 2020 so far?

On this week's episode of the SMTN podcast I sit down with chat and we go over all the important issues like Why would Persona 5 Vanilla be better than Royal? Also a lot of opinions on the PlayStation 5 now that I have been using mine for the last five days. Thanks to everyone for hopping into chat and I hope you all enjoy listening to it even if you couldn't be there live!

Nocturne HD Remaster has just released in Japan and while the rest of us have to wait until Spring 2021 to play it I decided to invite Nyarly onto this week's show to talk initial impressions since he imported the Switch version. I ask him a mixture of my own questions and yours about this new remaster so we can see if this remaster offers up enough to justify being bought again 17+ years later. Let us know what you think of the episode in the comments below or online.

In another slow news week for SMT and Persona something strange happened on twitter last week. Persona 5 Scramble was trending on twitter. This lead me to finally inviting on Happy who is a fellow SMTN community member and very vocal advocate of Scramble. We talk about where we go after P5S and then slowly delve deeper into madness with tangent after tangent. I hope you all enjoy this episode as it was a fun time talking to Happy along with the live chat.

Back when Persona 5 Royal released in March of 2020 it was flooded with a wave of overwhelmingly positive review scores by many critics. One of the people who gave the game a 10/10 was Michael Higham from GameSpot. This week I got the chance to talk to Michael all about his experience getting into the SMT series all the way leading up to reviewing P5R earlier this year.

Happy early upload day and more importantly happy birthday to Erin Fitzgerald (voice of Chie, Toko, Noire, Wakaba, and many other roles). Since Erin and I share the same birthday I thought it might be fun to just sit down and chat after all these years. No major news or questions in this one just two people sitting down to chat. I hope you all enjoy this episode and special thanks once again to Erin for coming on SMTN.

The next generations is now closer than ever and PlayStation has finally dropped a megaton of PS5 news. So after the latest PS5 showcase we decided to celebrate with an extra special group discussion talking about all the games shown off, the release date, and price for this new system. Extra special thanks again to Nyarly, Greg, Ozi, and Senorish for coming onto this extra long episode. What do you think about the PlayStation 5 and are you going to try to get one at launch this year?

Nintendo shocked the world and even Atlus fans by announcing that the sequel to Hyrule Warriors will not only be a prequel to Breath of the Wild, but will be releasing worldwide this November. Obviously all of this on top of the fact that Persona 5 Scramble has been sitting in silence regarding it's official western release. So resident Persona and Hyrule Warriors fan Ozi joins us to see what this could mean for P5S and see if Nintendo has stolen the steam from this game before it even reaches western fans. Let us know what you think of the episode in the comments below and thank you for listening as always.

Much like the most recent PlayStation State of Play event there is little to no real news to discuss this week. So to make up for that Michelle AKA Señorish joins us to discuss how they got into Persona and discuss future plans for finally playing SMT. Also expect a good amount of mostly spoiler free Danganronpa talk because we legally had to while talking to each other. Thank you all for the questions as well and let us know what you think of this episode online.

Persona 5 The Animation surprised the world last week not only by announcing that it will be receiving an English dub, but also because it will cost $300! So following a long holiday weekend I decide to sit down with the SMTN community and discuss why this is a terrible decision for so many reasons. The later half of the show is rounded off by answering community questions and having way too much fun thinking about Raidou 3.

Persona 5 Royal released a little over a month ago and to celebrate SMTN has special guest Nyarly on to do a one on one spoilercast with Spencer. This BEEFY episode is full to the brim of spoiler talk, but we do start with some general Persona 5 impressions since SMTN never did a proper spoilercast for the original game. Sorry we couldn't get everyone's questions answered at the end, but hopefully the four hour show makes up for that a little bit. Let us know what you think of this episode in the comments below.

Atlus West was kind enough to send us early copies of Persona 5 Royal to cover and to help us discuss Waffles and Spencer sit down for a long talk about the game. We cover early impressions from playing the full version of the game and if you want to know the initial good and even bad about P5R this episode will hopefully help you decide if you want to pull the trigger on picking up the game when it releases this week. Thank you all for giving us questions to answer about the game and don't forget to stick around for the bloopers this week as well this week. Expects lots more coverage and even a full on review for Persona 5 Royal as we continue playing through the game along with all of you.

With recent events Naka Kon 2020 sadly was cancelled, but thankfully the staff invited SMTN and Nyarly to still do our panel live. This is just like the panel we did back in January at Taiyou Con, but this is now after two releases so hopefully the updated discussion topic isn't old.

The worlds of Persona and Omega Force collided to give us Persona 5 Scramble last month. Now after beating the Japanese version of the game Spencer and Shane from Warriors Dojo sit down for a spoiler free talk all about the game. We go over the gameplay, how much deeper the game is even after playing the previously released demo, and just can't seem to praising the game overall.

SMTN has returned after over a year of silence to talk all about the latest release of Catherine Full Body on PS4 (sorry Vita). Spencer invites Melissa on to talk about everything new, comparing this to the 2011 original, and all things spoilers. So make sure you have playthroughed the game at least once to not ruin the experience for yourself.

Apologies for some uneven audio levels in advanced. Let us know what you think of having the show back and any other feedback. These next few episodes will be a test pilot for a new direction we want the show to go in.
