Shin Megami Tensei IV Coming to North America

In an announcement that is sure to thrill JRPG lovers everywhere, Atlus has announced that it’ll be bringing its title Shin Megami Tensei IV to the 3DS as an exclusive this summer, and it’ll hit the shelves in North America this time.

The game will be the first all-new entry in this beloved series in, quite literally, a decade—and while there’s no official release date at this time, Atlus is assuring fans that it’ll be a solid title worth the wait.

As for content, the game will feature plenty of demons to fight, recruit, and “fuse”, along with player-made moral choices and the series’ well-known “Press Turn” battle system.

Read an excerpt from the press release below:

“It’s been nearly ten years since the last chapter closed in the original Shin Megami Tensei role playing game (RPG) series, but the long wait is nearly over. Developed by the award-winning ATLUS team, Shin Megami Tensei IV (SMTIV) features powerful new demons, expansive dungeons, epic story arcs with branching plot lines, game-altering decision making, and more. Built specifically for the Nintendo 3DS™ system with optimized graphics, 3-D dungeons, voiced dialogue, and StreetPass functionality, SMTIV will be a premium title available this summer.

Building on the styles of ATLUS’ Persona, Devil Summoner, and Devil Survivor titles, SMTIV is the first true successor to 2004’s Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne. The story of SMTIV revolves around the Samurai, the sacred protectors of the Eastern Kingdom of Mikado. As a newly appointed Samurai, players will struggle with factions that have nefarious designs on the world as they defend their home kingdom from a growing army of demons. Decisions players make throughout the course of the story will have lasting repercussions, as the fate of the world hangs in the balance.”
