Atlus has revealed that it will be holding a Shin Megami Tensei concert as part of Anime Expo 2023 in July this year.
The concert, which is exclusive to Anime Expo attendees, will be held at The Novo on 1st July and is one of many events across the year that the company is holding to celebrate the demonic RPG series' 30th anniversary. This is also the first-ever official live anniversary concert for the series in the west.
Partnering with the Society for the Promotion of Japanese Animation, Shin Megami Tensei 30th LIVE: Band of Shadows Concert will be all about the series' history, a celebration of SMT right from Shin Megami Tensei on the Super Famicom all the way to Shin Megami Tensei V. The concert is being produced by soundtrec (Sonic Symphony, Capcom Live) and SOHO Live (music agency, Pokémon Symphonic Evolutions, Distant Worlds: Music from FINAL FANTASY).
Tickets will be sold at a later date over on the official 30th anniversary website, but Jack Frosts and Mothmen should temper their expectations as Atlus has said that the concert won't include "any major announcements". The logo, however, is very cool, featuring multiple iconic SMT demons:
Anime Expo takes place at the Los Angeles Convention Center from 1st to 4th July 2023 and is in its 32nd year. The expo showcases various anime, manga, and game announcements events, stalls, and more. The show returned to an in-person event in 2022 after a two-year break as a result of the pandemic.
Are you attending Anime Expo this year? Will you be going to the SMT concert? Let us know in the comments!
Unfortunately no announcement for a renewed version of SMTV or anything else SMT related.
I live near Anime Expo, and I went there in the past. The lines just to get in to the convention center can take forever though. I’m not sure if I’ll go this year or not.
Atlus needs to release a Shin Megami Tensei Collection for Switch and PC so everyone could be able to join in on the celebration by playing the over 30 SMT games from its history across the main games, the Last Bible (Revelations), Persona, Strange Journey, Nocturne, Devil Kids, Soul Hackers, Devil Survivors, Devil Summoner, and Digital Devil Saga.
I'd go if I even lived on that side of the country. Very cool, though.
Whoa, unlike all the Persona anniversary events, they're actually doing something outside of Japan?? I might have to try and make this one!
Strange Journey might actually be a possibility since Etrian Odyssey remasters have already been announced for Switch.
I'm pretty sure that would be considered a major announcement.
I’m in the U.K. but I’m hoping to see it online
Well, we will see if Game Pass rumours get some track.
@steely_pete I don't think SMT does stuff like that, compared to the Persona Series.
@fbnaulin Those rumors being?
@NatiaAdamo They say SMT V, IV, and III are coming to Game Pass (source: trust me, bro).
Anyway, I'll be happy to replay V with higher resolution and framerate.
Not going but I look forward to watching it afterwards.
SMT has some great soundtracks.
@fbnaulin I believe 3 and 5, but also 4? That's a 3DS game.
