Shin Megami Tensei III Nocturne HD Remaster is coming to PC on May 25th and from the looks of it, it will be a barebones port and nothing more. Not only that, but the game will be locked at 30fps on the PC.
According to some early reports and gameplay footage from the PC version, there won’t be a 60fps or unlocked framerate options. Instead, PC gamers will have to play it at 30fps.
I've touched a bit of Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne's upcoming PC port on Steam. Sad to report that it is indeed capped at 30fps. I've taken a small slice of gameplay footage at the very beginning of the game with a Steam FPS counter at the top left (sorry that it's super small). pic.twitter.com/FRGrMJoF89

This is the second upcoming PC game that appears to be lacking major PC features. I mean, seriously now, a 30fps PC game in 2021 is inexcusable.
I’m almost certain that the game won’t even feature proper K&M controls. It would be a pleasant surprise if it does, but I don’t really expect much from Atlus. And, if Persona 5 Royal ever comes out on PC, it will most likely follow Shin Megami Tensei III Nocturne HD Remaster’s example.
The other upcoming PC game that is a mere console port and nothing more is NINJA GAIDEN: Master Collection. As we’ve already reported, this collection will require a gamepad, and won’t support keyboard & mouse. It won’t also have extensive PC graphics settings, though it will at least support 4K/60fps.
