Shin Megami Tensei: Synchronicity Prologue is a fun little metroidvania-styled spin-off of the Shin Megami Tensei games that sees you controlling Jack Frost and Jack o’ Lantern as they learn new skills and battle demons.
Taking place during the events of 2009’s Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey, Shin Megami Tensei: Synchronicity Prologue sees you exploring a demon infested open world. You start off with Jack Frost, one of the demons from the Shin Megami Tensei series, capable of firing ice projectiles to harm enemies, as well as being able to perform a charge shot that can be used to freeze enemies or water. As you progress you’ll find Jack o’ Lantern, who you can float through the air and unleash fire projectiles. You can switch between the two characters at the push of a button and will need to use both of their skills to succeed.
The text in Shin Megami Tensei: Synchronicity Prologue is entirely in Japanese, so you can’t really get much out of the story, but the artwork and open world action platforming gameplay is great fun. A quirky little metroidvania adventure well worth checking out for a very different take on the Shin Megami Tensei universe!
