Etrian Odyssey IV for $20, Soul Hackers for $25 ⊟
I know Etrian Odyssey Untold comes out in just a few days, but that doesn’t mean you should pass on an opportunity to fill your 3DS library with more Atlus RPGs. Besides, who knows when we’ll get more from the company…
[Update: EOIV is on backorder, but you can still get it for $20 under alternate sellers.]
PSA to all the girls out there ⊟
It’s nonsensical stuff like this bit from Shin Megami Tensei IV that makes Atlus USA one of my favorite in-house localization teams, probably second only to Nintendo of America’s Treehouse group. Speaking of, Jason Schreir has published an excellent profile on that team over at Kotaku — lots of great notes on Mother 3, Animal Crossing, and even Starfy.

Reblog if pizza is your best friend
Down to ride or die for this pizza, yfm. Big ups to Shaina for this screenshot from Shin Megami Tensei IV and my life.

TinyCast 003 - Mega Man from the Future!
Tiny Cartridge • TinyCast
We have a third episode for our podcast! This is a thing now, our podcast. We hope you’ve been enjoying this experiment. In this Tinycast, we once again chat about everyone’s favorite game Animal Crossing: New Leaf, but for just a few minutes and only after we discuss Shin Megami Tensei IV, Mega Man, Attack of the Friday Monsters, Level-5 worries, and all of last week’s eShop announcements.
Christian and Fran lead the conversation this time because both JC and I forgot to do our homework and play Shin Megami Tensei IV — blame New Leaf (and I guess new babies, on JC’s end). You can download the episode here and read show notes after the break.
Prepare to link up…
Welcome to the SMTDS, Flynn!
New Leaf and Attack of the Friday Monsters have distracted us from playing or discussing this new Atlus RPG, but I promise we’ll be chatting a lot about it soon!
Shin Megami Tensei IV: Adventures of a butt
Naming your Shin Megami Tensei IV character “a butt” is the gift that keeps on giving. If you don’t mind totally ruining the drama, and if you are twelve. Which I don’t, and am.
Important note: while you can name your character “a butt,” the game will not allow you to name him “a poop.” I learned this the hard way, and I don’t want any of you to feel the sting of that discovery.
Sure you are, Jonathan
I love you, but you don’t know what you’re talking about. Credit to Gian-carlo for the pic.
Shin Megami Tensei IV’s “Unclean Ones’ Country” trailer
I’ve been advised that this trailer may spoil part of the game, I guess. I don’t really think so, but if you’re way too sensitive about spoilers, be advised.
If you’re not that concerned about it, you should also read Jeremy Parish’s excellent review, which describes levels of depth I assumed were in the game after the parts I’ve played, but haven’t come close to experiencing yet. I really need to put down Animal Crossing long enough to get into it.
By the way, can I mention how consistently good USGamer has been so far? I’ve enjoyed literally everything I’ve read there so far, and I’m a picky jerk about game writing.

Answers to your Fire Emblem & SMT IV promotion questions
We already announced this $30 eShop credit deal yesterday, but now we can provide hard details instead of speculation:
- You will need to buy both Fire Emblem: Awakening and Shin Megami Tensei IV to receive the $30 eShop credit
- This works with both digital and retail copies — just make sure to register your Club Nintendo codes (if you bought a limited edition Fire Emblem 3DS, link your system with Club Nintendo)
- It doesn’t matter if you already bought Fire Emblem: Awakening months ago; all you need to do is register both games and complete their registration surveys before August 31
- You can use the credit on any eShop product (3DS or Wii U) you want, but you’ll need to retrieve your special code from the Club Nintendo site before September 31, and redeem the code on the eShop before December 31
- You can get only one $30 credit per Club Nintendo account, and both game codes must be registered to the same account
- North America only
I know it’s tempting to pick up a recent full-game release like Project x Zone or whatevs with the credit, but please consider grabbing some of the small but quality eShop titles out there! I’m sure a few dozen sites will release guides on fun games to blow your credit on soon.
Get a $30 credit for buying Fire Emblem and SMT IV
If you caught Atlus’s Shin Megami Tensei IV unboxing — yes, publishers are posting unboxing videos of their own games now — you heard the company stress that you should register the Club Nintendo code included with each copy. Now we know why!
The full details aren’t out for this deal, but it looks like you will be able to score $30 worth of eShop credit if you register both Fire Emblem: Awakening and Shin Megami Tensei IV (this photo doesn’t specify that you need to buy both, but that’s what makes the most sense) with North America’s Club Nintendo. Presumably this works with both digital and physical copies, considering the shots of the retail boxes. Also, I’m guessing you’ll be eligible even if you previously registered a copy of Awakening.
The deal already makes sense because RPG fans will probably end up owning both of these anyway if they have a 3DS. And it helps to ease the pain of SMT IV costing $50 for its box set. Annnddd there’s that whole Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem project for Wii U thing — that probably helped prod Nintendo into this unconventional promotion.
Shin Megami Tensei IV book sample
Here’s some art from the “Strategy & Design Book” that comes with every pre-ordered copy of Shin Megami Tensei IV. I really want to play both this and Project X Zone, but it is really really really not a good time for long-ass games right now.
But hey, if you’re not obsessed with Animal Crossing and/or covered in babies 24/7, go ahead and pre-order! And look through the preview of the bundled book!
