It’s been long enough since IV
At first it was hard to make sense out of Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse (known in Japan as “Final”). Initially I thought it was just an expansion of sorts for IV, but as it turns out, it’s a brand new game.
Now you’ll be playing as more of a commoner rather than a badass, and while characters from the core entry return, it will be an isolated experience. It’s been a while since IV dropped in 2013, and I’m ready for another true SMT game at this point. With a new Persona and Tokyo Mirage Sessions on the horizon, it’s a good time to be an Atlus fan.
Apocalypse will arrive this summer on 3DS in North America. It already came out in Japan in February and its status in Europe is unknown.
