[[WMG: The game for the Switch will be a remake of Megami Tensei 2]]
Many of the ideas from that game were recycled in later games. What else is there that we missed?

[[WMG: In ''Strange Journey Redux'' Maria will be similar to Amaterasu in that she was [[spoiler: meant to be one of the Mother Goddesses]]]]
* I don't know, maybe it's the [[spoiler: ''[[ThemeNaming Ma]]'']] in her name

* From his perspective, his story has a lot in common with most JRPGs. First, he finds out that demons are killing people, so he goes out and fights them. He is unjustly imprisoned, and he takes the initiative to grapple with the guard. His main motivation is [[AlwaysSaveTheGirl finding his girlfriend]]. He dies in a HeroicSacrifice, passes the torch to the hero by telling him to destroy the evil robots, is resurrected by God, and becomes the savior of his people. Only too late does he realize that his treacherous former friend is actually TheHero.

[[WMG: Now that Apocalypse is out, SMT 2 will get a western release]]
* Since GodIsEvil and you kill Him in Apocalypse, and there wasn't any controversy over that, there's no reason not to release SMT 2. Besides, well, remaking and retranslating the whole thing.

* The Hero of SMT 1 can summon up to three and then four demons at a time, due to the COMP hardware limitations. Aleph can summon five right away. Meanwhile, the Demi-Fiend, Flynn, and Nanashi are limited to three at a time due to the Press Turn system. Apocalypse's database states that hunters fuel their demons with naturally produced Magnetite, and the same goes for Raidou and his demons. The three demon limit for Flynn and Nanashi is intentional; Stephen most likely had a better version of the Demon Summoning Program by the time IV rolled around, and managed to make a program that summons lots of demons at a time. But Stephen also realized that most people can't find enough Magnetite to keep the demons around long enough to protect them, so he made the program to power the demons by the user's Magnetite. More than three demons at a time would strain the user too much, so the cap is at three.

[[WMG: Dying in a SMT game results in going to the River Styx by default]]
From game to game, the Game Over screens change. SMT 1 and 2 both show a river and a promise that every soul returns to the other end. The fourth game is almost identical, except Charon is up to his neck in souls and paperwork. Charon or the dialogue box claims that every soul passes through there. ''Nocturne'' and ''Apocalypse'' are different in that ''Nocturne'' involves angels coming to pick up Demi Fiend's soul, and ''Apocalypse'' shows Nanashi on a strangely abandoned train track to the afterlife. Angels are probably taking Demi Fiend's soul because he's a demon that is dangerously powerful, working for Lucifer, or both. ''Apocalypse'' is an oddity in that there's no reason why Nanashi wouldn't go to the River Styx other than the fact that [[AnthropicPrinciple the game wouldn't happen if he didn't meet Dagda]]. Maybe he believed more in Yomotsu Hirasaka than the River Styx before he died? It's not like Dagda was specifically searching for him.

[[WMG: The new Switch game takes place in a world where humans suddenly vanished]]
* The trailer shows lots of buildings that look completely intact on the outside, but the inside is full of greenery, a bit like ''Life After People''.

[[WMG: In the first and second games, only the main character can use the COMP because...]]
* The other characters don't know his password, and for some reason he refuses to tell.
* No one knows how to operate a computer.
* It breaks when he dies, and only he or the healers know how to fix it.
* Attempting to use his COMP to summon demons is dangerous because the demons are only contracted to him.
