The updated remaster of the cult classic Shin Megami Tensei Nocturne is finally releasing in the West. After launching in Japan in October 2020, players worldwide will soon get access to the English version of the game. Anyone who pre-ordered the Digital Deluxe edition gets to play Shin Megami Tensei III Nocturne HD Remaster four days early. Atlus recently announced the exact times for Steam, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch. Digital Deluxe owners will get to jump into the Vortex World starting late tonight on May 20 for some, and much earlier in the morning on May 21 for others.
All times are in Pacific and GMT.
PlayStation 4/Nintendo Switch:
May 20 – 21:00 PT
May 21 – 0:00 GMT
May 20 – 19:00 PT

Atlus asks that anyone streaming the game early please use spoiler warnings. So if you haven’t grabbed the Digital Deluxe edition, but you plan on playing Shin Megami Tensei III Nocturne HD Remaster, be sure to watch out for any spoilers around. Although, with the Japanese release some months ago, and reviews already out for the game, spoilers are practically unavoidable online. If you’ve managed to stay spoiler-free so far, keep an extra eye out starting tonight.
For everyone else, Shin Megami Tensei III Nocturne HD Remaster launches May 25 for Steam, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch.
