Atlus had been teasing some sort of a PSN announcement this past week, and if you were praying to your lord and master Alice that this mystery ride will stop at a digital re-release of Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne, your prayers have just been answered. The third mainline entry in the SMT RPG series has arisen from the PS2 graveyard and is available once more via the PlayStation Network as a PS2 Classic.
Unfortunately, as a PS2 Classic the title only runs on PS3 hardware and will not support Vita handhelds for SMT punishment on the go. Fortunately, the game is everything you loved about the original North American PS2 release, meaning it includes the bonus Maniax content like... Dante from Devil May Cry. You see, Atlus and Capcom were involved in a little collaboration back during Devil May Cry III's development, and one of the fruits of that partnership is Dante making a cameo appearance as a "hidden" character in SMT Nocturne Maniax (hey, he was advertised on the back of the box).
Oh alright it's his Devil May Cry 2 version, but this could be your last chance to see Dante as nature intended but only if you survive long enough to meet and maybe even recruit him! We are talking about a classic SMT game after all, even a freaky matador could mop the floor with you.
