This is NOT AN APRIL FOOL'S DAY JOKE. Repeat: This is not an April Fool's Day Joke. If it was, faces would be bloodied.
Atlus has confirmed with us that the next game in the Shin Megami Tensei role-playing game series is finally coming our way this summer. 3DS game Shin Megami Tensei IV has been teasing us from afar with frequent Japan-specific news updates on the title, but now we finally get ours. Finally!
We get it all, including StreetPass functionality and voiced dialogue. The Press Turn system returns, as does demon collection. Speaking of, there are more than 400 demons to collect and fuse this time around.
Atlus says that they've used their best to create this game, pulling members from the Nocturne, Strange Journey, Soul Hackers, and Persona teams. In my book, these are the best games out there, so that's great news.
Atlus plans to release SMTIV as a premium title this summer. Expect more details soon. For now, check the newly launched official site.
