Register SMT IV and Fire Emblem and get $30 eShop credit photo
Register SMT IV and Fire Emblem and get $30 eShop credit
by Dale North

Niiiiiiiiice! When I caught early word of this deal I just grinned. What a wonderful way to get two of the best role-playing games I've played in a long time in the hands of more gamers.

Here's how it works: Register both upcoming Atlus RPG Shin Megami Tensei IV and the brilliant strategy RPG Fire Emblem: Awakening on your Club Nintendo account and get a $30 credit to use in Nintendo's eShop for the 3DS. Both retail and digital purchases of either game are eligible, too. So if you already have Fire Emblem Awakening (you should!), know that you're in for a free $30 credit when you pick up SMT IV. How freakin' awesome is that?

This deal begins on July 16 and runs through August 31. 

So if you were on the fence about Shin Megami Tensei IV, get off. This game is amazing. And if you think about it, you're getting the game, a collectible case, a strategy book, a CD, and a bonus $30 to spend.

Come back tomorrow morning for our full Shin Megami Tensei IV review. A preview? It's fantastic.

Devilish delight: Shin Megami Tensei IV hands-on

In a room full of peers I embarrassed myself. A few weeks back, I found myself in a meeting room along with folks that head up a lot of the other gaming websites and magazines in America. After a brief presentation, Atlus started to ask the group for a few volunteers to be the first to play Shin Megami Tensei IV. Before their sentence finished I found my peers laughing at me. They were laughing at a grunt that came forth from my mouth, almost involuntarily. I found myself frantically waving my hands in the air, insisting to be among the first to play.

Needless to say, I'm pretty excited about Shin Megami Tensei IV

Shin Megami Tensei IV teaser wants to know who you are

Shin Megami Tensei IV is coming to America on July 16. All you SMT fans know this already, and are probably as pumped up as Dale North is about it. Well get ready to get extra hyper crazy thanks to this little teaser trailer Atlus put out. Not much is shown off, but we do see some gameplay plus hear an English voice tell us that "The choices you make will no longer bear only on you." Spooky.

Shin Megami Tensei fans are probably already downloading Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers, but if you haven't done so yet, check this out.

Today, we're going to give away a handful of codes for Atlus' latest 3DS release to those that list out for us their favorite Shin Megami Tensei series games in our comments. Anything from the franchise is fair game. Try to sell us (and everyone else) on the top selection of your list of five -- let us know why it's the best one. The idea here is to spread the popularity of this amazing RPG series.

The best pitches we find in the pile will get sent a code to download Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers from the 3DS eShop later today. We'll keep this short so that participants can start downloading this evening, so have your entries in before 3:00 p.m Central time. We'll announce the winners at 4:00 Central. 

Given that these are codes for the North American store, this contest is only open to those that own a North American 3DS. Good luck! 

See my entry below as an example.

Review: Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers
by Chris Carter

I'm what you call an intrepid Shin Megami Tensei player. Although I've been playing JRPGs my whole life, the MegaTen series for the most part has eluded me -- you could call it my white whale.

So over the past five years, I've set out to increase my knowledge of the franchise bit by bit under the tutelage of Atlus sage Dale North. My latest conquest is Soul Hackers -- a remake of a game from 1997 that never made it outside of Japan.

I'm really glad I got into Megami Tensei.
