September 3, 2004 – Atlus U.S.A., Inc. announced today that its
highly anticipated title, Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne for the
PlayStation®2 Computer Entertainment System, has been given a Mature
rating by the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) along with
four descriptors, Blood, Intense Violence, Language and Sexual
finally grown up with the release of Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne,"
said Gail Salamanca, Atlus’ Marketing Manager. "We’ve taken great
care to keep the localization as true to the creators’ original
vision with its dark and often controversial themes, as doing
anything else would be a disservice to the gaming public. The
developer’s have crafted a game that raises the bar on mature
storytelling and have combined it with a deep combat system and an
overwhelming amount of character customization options never before
seen in any RPG. SMT: Nocturne is definitely not for people with
delicate sensibilities, but for those brave enough to play it,
you’ll be in for a gaming experience unlike any other."

come...or possibly become the harbinger of its destruction.
