An unsurprising but welcome announcement.
Although Tokyo is going to get wrecked again in the Shin Megami Tensei universe, the world will witness the destruction.
Nintendo and Atlus posted a new trailer for the title today which confirmed the game would release outside Japan. No release timeframe was given, and Atlus is still reporting "TBD", nor do we know if there will be a delay between Japan's release and the rest of the world.
This is the second JRPG localization announcement from corporate cousins Sega and Atlus in the last two weeks, following Valkyria Chronicles 4's immediate localization announcement.
