Yeah, I researched that a little and I think it was false. Lunacy has a recurring motif of butterflies and the person who e-mailed me all those years ago must've thought it had something to do with Philemon. As it turns out, it's actually supposed to be the spiritual successor to the Sega CD/Saturn game Mansion of Hidden Souls, which was also all about the butterflies.
This article needs to be updated. Since it was created, the following Shin Megami Tensei games have come out:
Shin Megami Tensei IV
Devil Survivor Overclocked
Devil Survivor 2
Persona 3 Portable
Persona 4 Golden
Persona 4 Arena
Persona 4 Arena Ultimax
Also a whole bunch of upcoming games. Other things that have happened since regarding SMT include:
Two animated adaptions of Persona 4
An animated adaption of Devil Survivor 2
Persona 3 The Movie
The classic Persona games have been re-released on PSP
I'm fine with providing the sections on Persona 3 Portable (since I've already played and beaten it) as well some of the animation stuff, but anyone else wants to help with this?
Also, the layout of the article needs to be updated to match the current look of HG101.
While it's nice that you're doing this, we know a lot of this is really behind. But, if you talk to do either derboo, or Discoalucard, you can ask how to help yourself. They'd be immensely grateful I'm sure.

We know, it's just that updating this article with reviews of massive RPGs is practically a full time job at this point. One of the books I have vaguely planned for the future is about Shin Megami Tensei, which will basically be writing this entire article from scratch, though even then I'll need to solicit contributions for a lot of these, considering how huge the series is (and has become).

shmuplations.com/kobayashikaneko/ Translated 1996 interview with both SMT designer Kazuma Kaneko and SaGa designer Tomomi Kobayashi. It's less an interview as much as it is a conversation between the two on their influences and style.
