Shin Megami Tensei IV: Final Is The Latest Entry In The MegaTen Series
Talk about exciting news for Shin Megami Tensei fans!
Atlus has finally announced an additional entry in the Shin Megami Tensei franchise, and it's Shin Megami Tensei IV: Final for 3DS. This is an exciting announcement, especially since it's another proper named entry in the MegaTen series. Famitsu has details on the upcoming title and it all sounds like an interesting angle for the brand new adventure.
Set in the year 203X, the story will follow the Protagonist who is an apprentice for the organization known as the Outlaw Hunters. He ends up dying during a special mission and ends up tangling with a Mysterious Demon. The world of SMT IV: Final is a bizarre one too, with a huge wall of bedrock covering the sky to keep out contact from the outside since the gods were locked in an extremely destructive war.
Producer Kazuyuki Yamai has gone on record saying that the plan is to create a game that even people didn't play Shin Megami Tensei IV can enjoy, so if you were worried about the two connecting in a way that would prevent you from playing, it sounds like you'll be able to rest easy.
The game is making its Japanese debut on February 20, 2016. We've yet to hear of a Western announcement, but it'll probably be coming soon.
