Glorious Shin Megami IV OST box ⊟
I’ve embedded an unboxing of the recently released Shin Megami Tensei IV OST posted by @xanthax after the break. There’s not too much exciting stuff included in the set besides the neat sticker and the five million tracks on the four discs, but this was a great excuse to share this legendary cover that we somehow never posted when it was originally unveiled. It’s so awesome and perfect and I would not mind having that framed as a poster in my office.

Shin Megami Tensei IV $30 on eShop, Amazon ⊟
I know, we’ve had a lot of deal posts over the last couple of days. I apologize for contributing to the retail frenzy, but retailers make it so appealing by, like, discounting things.
At least this deal won’t require you to die in the cold outside of a Best Buy: Atlus is knocking $20 off the price of Shin Megami Tensei IV on the 3DS eShop (it’s the same price at Amazon, too), from November 28 through Dec. 1. The DLC is on sale too!
And on Vita, Dragon’s Crown is $30 on PSN, while Persona 4 Golden has dropped to $20 at Amazon! Image via Kuroirinkku.

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.

Shin Megami Tensei IV's DLC outfits are like cosplay ⊟

The last batch of downloadable content for Shin Megami Tensei IV released this week, which I took as an opportunity to look through some of the gear you can purchase in the game. They’re all pretty odd/neat, like the gold Traje de Luces gear inspired by Spanish bullfighters and shown above (middle) — you can get that in the latest Radiant Equipment set of challenges.

A while back, I asked the game’s stylish art director Masayuki Doi how he picked which costumes are offered in the standard game or as DLC:

"All the costumes that are in the game itself, they were specifically designed to match the world, the characters, whether it be more European style, Eastern Kingdom of Mikado, or elsewhere the protagonist travels to. I made sure all these designs are functional, something that people actually wear with a purpose. 

On the other hand, for the DLC costumes, I picked the ones that are more like cosplay, something that looks cool but may not actually make sense, [something that might not have] a real function or real world usage.”

Oh, and just as a PSA: the Fire Emblem: Awakening + SMTIV eShop promotion ends tomorrow, so make sure you register those games with Club Nintendo if you want to get that $30 eShop credit to spend later!

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…

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.

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.

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.
