Shin Megami Tensei 4 APOCALYPSE
« on: October 05, 2015, 11:21:56 AM »


Atlus have just announced a sequel to Shin Megami Tensei IV featuring a whole new cast of characters. Due to be released in Japan during February 2016. Looks even more punk rock than its predecessor.

SMTIV was a modern masterpiece, and this is incredible news. Assets will undoubtedly be reused, but no ten year wait this time!

Thoughts? I'm pretty hyped already. I hope this means we get more Ryota Koduka beats.

That's nice. I never did give SMTIV a fair shot, though. Not sure when I'll ever get around to it either...

"Final follows in line with Shin Megami Tensei IV‘s world, originally released on May 23, 2013 in Japan. A key word for the game will be “Deicide” and it is a brand new 3DS game, not a remake."
I avoid online multiplayer because my brain still works.

I could have sworn most of these games end with a lot death and destruction and the like....  Can't imagine how this will unfold.

EDIT: Thanks Mickey for the notification!

Alternatively, this is a prequel (which given SMTIV's setting, isn't all that far fetched).
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

Oh wow! I didn't know that! One of my favorite things about SMT IV was speculating how the world got the way it did, and what happened between then and the events of the game. I was a little disappointed that it was barely touched on, but this sounds like it may scratch that itch. Can't imagine it'll have a happy ending.

edit: Are we sure this is a prequel? Navarre returns as a ghost.

Considering that I was taking a blind guess before, I'm sure its not a prequel now.

Also, lol at chibli-ghost Navarre.

is that "blah" because you don't own a 3DS, or because you'd prefer it be *not* on a handheld?
