Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse arriving this summer for 3DS

Shin Megami Tensei IV Apocalypse (3DS) Announcement - Screenshot 1

Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse, released in Japan as Shin Megami Tensei IV: Final in Japan (changed so that we “understand the game’s epic nature”), has been officially announced for North America. The storyline intersects with the events of 2013’s Shin Megami Tensei IV, and has a few of the same characters, but Atlus notes that no experience with the original is required. Instead of being based on the previous protagonists, Apocalypse is centered on the humans that live within what’s left of Tokyo. As a recently deceased Hunter, players find themselves resurrected after swearing allegiance to the god Dagda. Two paths are open to progress, either anarchy or peace, as Dagda schemes against other gods. Demon fusion returns, and there are plenty to fuse too, as the game features over 450 of them. Fusion is further augmented by skill affinities. In addition to their three demon companions, players are also joined by one of seven partners. Look for Apocalypse this summer.
