"Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Children" Games Head to 3DS Virtual Console in Japan

Game Boy Color spin-off comes in Black Book and Red Book flavors

The Japanese Virtual Console on Nintendo 3DS is getting a pair of Shin Megami Tensei spin-offs in the form of Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Children Black Book and Red Book. Originally released for Game Boy Color in 2000, the simplified SMT games will arrive in Japan on November 11 for ¥600 ($6) each. 


Black Book and Red Book both feature monster-collection and demon-fusing action, but they also each have different protagonists with connected stories. 




A third game, Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Children White Book followed with a third protagonist, and the first two were later bundled together on PlayStation. Devil Children was also adapted into a TV anime series—which ran from 2000-2001 and was followed by a sequel—a manga tie-in, and a trading card game.
