Shin Megami Tensei fans received a bit of a surprise today as Atlus announced a brand new game in the franchise. The publisher teased a major new reveal on Twitter, asking fans for 15,000 tweets related to the franchise before pulling back the curtain on Shin Megami Tensei IV: Final.
As of this time, information on the title is fairly scarce. Shin Megami Tensei IV director Satoshi Oyama will return for the all-new title, which will not be an enhanced remake as the name might suggest. Instead, the game is apparently the first direct sequel in franchise history, revisiting the characters and world of the previous title. According to Famitsu, the word “Decide” will play a key role in the game’s quest.
Shin Megami Tensei IV: Final is currently scheduled for release in Japan February 2016. A live stream from the website NicoNico is currently scheduled for October 11, where we should receive more information on the upcoming title. In the meantime, stay tuned to Nintendojo where we’ll have more information as it develops.
