Shin Megami Tensei IV: Final Makes Its Western Debut As SMT IV: Apocalypse
Zettai unmei mokushiroku!
Great news, Shin Megami Tensei fans! As it turns out, all the wishing and hoping for Shin Megami Tensei IV: Final getting a western release has paid off. It will be making its way westward this summer for $49.99, but with a different name: Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse.
Atlus's name change stems from the decision that the subtitle needed something different that "made sense, sounded good, and looked good on the box." The "Final" probably wouldn't make sense, now that I think about it, for possible western buyers not familiar with the series as a whole. "Apocalypse" was actually a great choice, and I'm looking forward to checking the game out when it finally releases this summer.
