Care of Atlus are some new details about Shin Megami Tensei IV.

Also, apart from the main quest, players may take on various side missions: some are special challenge quests (over a hundred of them, apparently) that can be completed at any time, while others are requests from in-game groups who try to establish their own monasteries.

EU Version of SMT: Devil Survivor 2 Needs “Fan Support” to Release

With the 3DS remake of Devil Survivor to reach Europe by the end of March, publisher Ghostlight responded to inquiries about the sequel, Devil Survivor 2, which hit North America back in 2012. Apparently, a European verison of DS2 is complete and approved by Nintendo, but the company is reluctant to release it due to DS titles being phased out of retail. “Without going into too much detail, retail support for DS titles is understandably low at the moment making it difficult for us to release the title,” the publisher said.

They are currently exploring an online release through their own storefront, though this would require “your full support in making this release happen.” The extent of that support was not made clear at this time.

Shin Megami Tensei IV Details

Atlus has released a few tidbits regarding Shin Megami Tensei IV‘s world and story. You command the 18-year-old protagonist, a Samurai-in-training from the kingdom of East Mikado. A prophetic dream precedes your initiation, a process known as the Gauntlet Ceremony. Apparently this refers to an actual gauntlet issued to each Samurai, a magical device that aids each warrior in battling demons.

Among your typical ragtag band of heroes are: Watler, a brash young fellow that lacks for manners; Jonathan, the group’s softspoken peacemaker; Navarre, a proud young man that hates to lose; and Isabeau, the only female Samurai and strong-willed to boot. As previously mentioned, the game goes to various points in time, and apparently modern Tokyo lies in ruins following an assault by demons.

Shin Megami Tensei 4 Detailed

The silent, nameless main character is a recent inductee into a samurai order secretly sworn to fight demons. At present only two other characters were introduced: Isakal, a friend and big brother figure to the hero, and Hope, the samurai leader.
