The very first Shin Megami Tensei is on iOS this week

Although the Shin Megami Tensei has been wildly successful in Japan from the very beginning, we still haven't seen a number of the earlier franchise entries. Atlus is seeking to solve that problem, starting wi...

Original Shin Megami Tensei making its first trip West

The first Shin Megami Tensei is being translated to English for the first time next month. You'll be able to pick it up from the iTunes Store on March 18 for $8. Not bad. Too bad (for me) it's coming "exclusively to the App ...

Euro-in luck: Soul Hackers set for September 20 in Europe photo
Euro-in luck: Soul Hackers set for September 20 in Europe
by Steven Hansen

Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers is a game with a name hard to squeeze into a headline. It also released for the 3DS in April in the United States (August 2012 in Japan). It will finally be released in Europe on September 20. This is, notably, an entire week's delay from the original, promised upon September 13 release date. 

Don't take this lying down, European readers. First they think they can delay a release one week, next thing you know it will be months, maybe even years before you get a game already released to much of the world. I mean, that already happens sometimes (oftentimes), but, you know. Principles and that lot.

Actually, don't rise up against the publishing menace. Unless that truly is your moral imperative, I guess. But I hear Soul Hackers, the slightly gussied up (full voice acting) version of the 1997 cyberpunk and demonic JRPG is pretty good.

Very quick tips guide for Shin Megami Tensei IV photo
Very quick tips guide for Shin Megami Tensei IV
by Chris Carter

Shin Megami Tensei IV is without a doubt a Shin Megami Tensei game. What do I mean by that? Well, it has a pretty steep learning curve that hits hard and fast very early, and unless you're a JRPG fan at heart, it can get a little discouraging -- very discouraging.

Having said that, the game does have a pretty extensive tutorial system, but for everything else and in-between, read on for some helpful hints on how to conquer your inner demon.

New releases: Demon slavery is back in style photo
New releases: Demon slavery is back in style
by Fraser Brown

It's Monday and I almost forgot. Here was me assuming it was still the weekend, but no, the new week has began and we've got a bunch of new releases to look forward to, or not. Shin Megami Tensei IV is the stand out new release this week, making 3DS owners appropriately smug. Dale's a fan, to put it lightly. 

Also dropping during the squishy middle part of July is Dynasty Warriors 8, the latest title in a series that I'm sure is now only being churned out for Jim; Time and Eternity drops on PS3, and is a game I know nothing about save that it deals with time travel and looks pretty; and the Italian adventure game with a silly name Face Noir launches on PC. 

What's got you all hot and bothered this week, chums?

Review: Shin Megami Tensei IV photo
Review: Shin Megami Tensei IV
by Dale North

It has been nine long years since we've enjoyed Atlus' role-playing masterwork, Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne. Yep, it's been nine long years since we've seen a numbered title in Atlus' core franchise (though Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey was a really nice tie-over).  That's a long time to wait for the follow-up to one of my favorite games of all time. 

Even so, fans were surprised to learn that the next numbered SMT game would be a portable title. The change from console to portable was certainly welcome, but even this portable game fan had some reservations. But now that I've reveled in Atlus' strange world once more I can tell you that all the dungeons, demons, and darkness you could ever want are here, fully intact.

[Update: Contest over! Winners are Charlietime, neonoxide, iwasabunny, Tim Douglas, and Shadowfox!]

In celebration of the launch of Shin Megami Tensei IV stateside, our friends at Atlus have given us three signed SMT IV E3 posters and five SMT IV 3DS skins to hand out to the biggest RPG nerds at Destructoid! (Sorry Dale; no staff.)

To win one of these beauties, you need to take a picture of your RPG collection (games, memorabilia, etc.) and post it in the comments below. (Please include a hand-drawn Dtoid logo or robot somewhere in the picture so we know you didn't just steal it from the Internet.) The three most dedicated RPG fans will win a signed poster and 3DS skin, and two runners-up will win a 3DS skin. And hey, get creative! We're looking for the biggest fans, not just the biggest wallets. More than size matters this time around!

You have until this Sunday, July 14 at 11:59 PM Pacific to post your pic, and the contest is open to anyone with a U.S. mailing address. Have fun! And stay tuned next week; we've got an even bigger Shin Megami Tensei IV contest planned on launch day :)

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.
