Atlus’ Shin Megami Tensei IV will be arriving for North America this Summer for Nintendo 3DS. The game will mark the return of the series after a long gap and is the true successor to Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne released in 2004.
Index Digital Media president and CEO Naoto Hiraoka stated that, “The return of the legendary Shin Megami Tensei series is one of the biggest milestones yet for Atlus and the 3DS.
“Since this is the first title from the original SMT series in a decade, we tapped the best developers from many of Atlus’ acclaimed projects including Nocturne, Strange Journey, Persona, and Soul Hackers to create a premium experience that lives up to our fans’ and our own expectations.”
Shin Megami Tensei IV will take place in a new world but feature the same Demon Fusion, the Press Turn battle system – which provides an extra turn every time you target an enemy’s weakness – and freedom of choice as other games in the franchise.
