Atlus has finally announced that Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse will be getting North American release of the Nintendo 3DS this summer. For Shin Megami Tensei fans, this is some glorious newss. This is especially so, as hopes for this continuation of Shin Megami Tensei IV to be localized have been exceedingly high.
Its story overlaps with that of the highly acclaimed Shin Megami Tensei IV as it follows a Hunter cadet who gets killed in post-apocalyptic Tokyo. However, the mysterious god Dagda brings the protagonist back to life and sends him down a rather treacherous path, where every decision has an impact. That’s nothing too unusual for an SMT game.
Though the official date is still undetermined, the game will come to stores at $49.99. Some of its features include:
- Combat Partners– Hunting demons is dangerous, so count on some backup! Alongside the standard three demons, players will be able to rely on one of seven partners to help win battles.
- Oodles of Demons– Be on your guard because Tokyo is infested with a series record of over 450+ demons to fight, fuse, or recruit.
- Revamped Demon Fusion– Demons will have affinities for certain skills, so players can better plan the outcome of fusions.
- Classic SMT Combat– Prospective Hunters will exploit weaknesses, boost attributes, and unlock skill bonuses with the returning Press Turn and Smirking systems.
