SMT III Nocturne streaming rules changes ahead of global release
In one recent tweet on the Japanese Shin megami tensei On Twitter, Atlus reminded streamers and downloaders to add spoiler warnings to videos with story content, like event cutscenes. The guidelines allow individuals to download game videos on a non-profit basis and properly display the Atlus and Sega copyright marks.
The Japanese game publisher had previously issued a stricter streaming guideline when SMT3 III Nocturne HD Remaster launched earlier in Japan in October 2020. Compared to the previous version, it removed restrictions on posting endgame content and using additional devices such as capture cards. This is because the new PC version has no hardware-based recording restrictions, unlike the PS4 and Switch consoles.
Atlus is known for his strict approach to video streaming to avoid spoiling his title’s intrigues on newcomers. Even the streaming monetization allowances given by its parent company Sega to the Japanese general public and to streamers affiliated with a company like Hololive Vtubers do not apply to Atlus games.
Shin Megami Tensei III Nocturne HD Remaster is immediately available on PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch in Japan and East Asia. The Western version, which also includes a global PC version on Steam, will be available on May 25, 2021.
