Shin Megami Tensei IV's U.S. boxart
Atlus has announced that Shin Megami Tensei IV, the first numbered entry for the cult first-person RPG in almost a decade, will release to North America this summer. That’s much sooner than anyone expected (not that a U.S. release was guaranteed), and not long after the series’ Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers spin-off ships here in two weeks!
This M-rated 3DS exclusive features over 400 demons to recruit/collect/fuse, voiced dialogue, branching plot lines, StreetPass stuf, and more. It also has an unusually expensive $50 price tag — perhaps Atlus will throw in the usual art book and OST? Quick plot details:
"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.”
As you can tell from the boxart, the packaging is almost identical to the Japanese edition, though it won’t have the black case that mature titles in Japan have.
