The most successful Shin Megami Tensei game yet?
Atlus’ excellent Shin Megami Tensei IV, the fourth numbered entry in the long running JRPG franchise, has now sold more than 600,000 copies worldwide, the company announced today. The game, which launched exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS in 2013 in Japan and North America, and in 2014 in Europe, is now the most successful mainline Shin Megami Tensei game ever, according to unofficial reports, far exceeding the performance of the PS2 exclusive Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne.
Of course, these numbers don’t account for the performance of the Persona games, which were, until recently, technically under the Shin Megami Tensei branding, at least in the west. Those games are all far more successful than the mainline games, so any claims of SMT4 being the most successful one yet does not consider those.
We at GamingBolt loved Shin Megami Tensei IV, and to this day, would easily recommend it as one of the best games to be had on the 3DS. Check out our full review for the game, and see for yourself.
