When are they going to change the name of the IP in the west? “Shin Megami Tensei” sounds so stupid to say out loud. That’s half of what’s holding it back outside of Japan.
When is OP going to stop being a giant faggot?
>>2271760whats so bad about saying smt?
because shin megami tensei is a series that weebs play to make them feel like real heckin japaneserinos
Connor isn't going to pick up SMT if it were called Rebirth Of The Goddess. They would more than likely protest it's release. Jamal on the other hand picks up every Shin Megami Tensei release since he was a teenager.
>>2271825Your me saying “smt”. No one knows what the hell you’re talking about.Revelations V would have sounded cool and your co-workers might have actually considered trying it out.
Shin Megami Tensei fits in now more than ever since it's become full on weebshit.
>>2271835>>2271840>”hey anon did you check out the new Pokémon? I got the Pearl version!”>”um no I’m playing shin megamay tensay five”>”oh ok uh cool”
When are you going to stop making same shitposting threads every day?
>>2271837If they changed it, it would be to True Goddess Reincarnation, have fun saying this and people thinking you're talking about some porn game.
>>2271760This reads like a shitpost, but I actually caught myself thinking pretty much this exact thing while trying to get my friend into SMT. Just saying SMT or megaten works for people in the know, but that's about it.
>>2271857>"Hey bro, what you playan?">«Demon summoner, bro»>"That sounds sweet! Lemme check it!">the demons summoned:
>>2271760I like it that way because it filters faggots.The name "Shin Megami Tensei" scares average people away and thats good.
Shin Mega Trannys ö y has a target audience
>>2271820I don't think anytime soon. He will be focused on makig the exact same thread for at least a few nonths now before he can move on.
Bring back calling the franchise "Revelations"
>>2271857did it occur to you that Pokemon is a weird fuckin' name that you have been conditioned to accept? because that's exactly what it is.
>>2272312This. "Pokemon" is an unnatural sounding word. Also, I've never seen an accent mark over a letter until I saw the word "Pokemon", and it's still the most frequent incidence of the use of an accent mark in the English language.
>>2271760Who cares what normalfags do or think? We'd be better off if they didn't play RPGs at all.
>>2272020I’m tired of AA shit though
>>2271864>>2271820This is my first thread ever on vrpg. How about you go fuck yourself and go police another thread.
>mainlineRevelations>PersonaRevelations: Persona>Last BibleRevelations: The Demon Slayer>Devil ChildrenRevelations: Demikids>Devil SummonerRevelations: Demon Detective>Devil SurvivorRevelations: Death Clock>Digital Devil SagaRevelations: Nirvana
>>2272637Not gonna lie.Death Clock and Nirvana do sound cool.
>>2272637>KMTRevelations: Prophecy>GMTRevelations: False Prophets>Majin TenseiRevelations Wars
>>2272312This sounds stupid but I still always wonder how life would be like if they managed to get the Pocket Monsters trademark instead. Some real extra focus on them being monsters you can put in your pocket, the handheld platform and trading aspect, but a lot more really obvious cheap dick jokes too, especially early one done by adults and people who knew nothing more than it was weird, japanese, and the children they wish were aborted were really loving it.Pokemon as a name is really weird since it's the abbreviation, it's like if SMT was the official name of the series. And only now you remember that IV was the first time we got these games without any subtitle, like Nocturne or Strange Journey or Devil Summoner etc.
>>2271760What in the flying fuck is this cringe? Weebtards actually play this shit? Believe me, dumb name of this turd is the least of it's problems
>>2272766Lay off, It used to be a great franchise before pandering to Fatlus cumguzzlers.
>>2272766trying way too hard to fit in
>>2271760They ditched the revelations name because japanese anime shit became cool by the early 00s, the Japanese name probably still gets attention from the weeaboo crowd.
>>2273141I wonder if the attraction of the weeaboo fanbase was worth alienating normal people by adopting such a weeb-pandering name
>>2273165Ah yes, they'll balk at it having an anime name, but won't at all mind the anime artstyle.
>>2272294This never happened, one game had that in the title and it's it's own thing now with a widely recognized name.
>>2273297>one gameTwo. Persona 1 and Last Bible 1.
>>2273165Turn based RPGs that aren't final fantasy or Pokemon already alienate normies. They're just marketing themselves for their core audience.
>>2271760What a faggot thread. I guess the name has too many syllables for retarded zoomers and millenials in the west.
>>2273334The Japanese just call it MegaTen
Does anyone know why they just started calling the series shin megami tensei instead of just megami tensei. I know that smt 1 was somewhat of a remake of the original but why keep it after 2?
>>2273628SMT1 is literally not a remake of MT1
>>2273377The Japanese have abbreviations for literally everything, franchises, individual games, products and so on, it's more practical that way.
>>2273628Soft reboot, because they just couldn't adapt later books about mememan Nakajima. The second Megaten game was already something completely different (and didn't have much continuity except for the references here and there).Still, fighting Seth on the space station could have been very cool.
>>2271760Impossible by now, fans would refuse, they had 1 (one) chance in the early 2000s when they brought Nocturne and the franchise was starting to pick up momentum in the west.>>2273628Atlus has more affection for Shin Megami Tensei (SuFami) since it's their own creation, the original Megami Tensei was based on a novel.
>>2271879>True Goddess ReincarnationMale characters look feminine af in this, so i knew it was a troon game, but this takes the cake.
>mfw SMTfags think their game is stupid to say out loudhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mushihimesama_Futari
>>2273739Spoken like a real /v/ user who never plays games and knows nothing about them.
>>2271760>outside of JapanIt sold worse than Ryza in Japan my dude
>>2272637>>Devil SurvivorRevelations Tactics
>>2273745To be fair the name is even more unreadable to Japanese. The Don part is written with kanji that says “shuryou” meaning mafia boss. Mafia boss = don.
>>2271902>you son of a bitch, I'm in
>>2273739It's the literal translation of Shin Megami Tensei anon, stop seeing troons everywhere.
>>2271857If they're playing pokemon then I don't want them playing sheen megahmih tensay vee
>>2273925The unashamed coomer bait sold better than the semi-coomer bait in Japan? No surprises there.
>>2271857Why are you talking to Pokemon fans?
>>2272020the kind of people that get scared away by ankle-high gatekeeping aren't even the ones you really want to keep out
Everyone I know just says "ESS EM TEE", even though its totally wrong. MegaTen works better but feels sort of gay, if not gayer than ESS EM TEE.>>2271836thank you jamal-kun supporting the franchise
