Atlus released a new gameplay trailer for the next mainline Shin Megami Tensei title, Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse, which takes place in the same universe as IV. Being known for their difficulty, this time Atlus demonstrates the importance of strategy and emphasis on buffs and debuffs when fighting the varies enemies in the game. You can watch the trailer below.
The plot of Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse overlaps with Shin Megami Tensei IV (and features some familiar characters), but no previous experience with the original is required! The game features:
Divine Intrigue – Choose between peace or anarchy while being a pawn in the gods’ chess game.
Combat Partners – Hunting demons is dangerous, so count on some backup! Alongside the standard three demons, players will be able to rely on one of seven partners to help win battles.
Oodles of Demons – Be on your guard because Tokyo is infested with a series record 450+ demons to fight, fuse, or recruit.
Revamped Demon Fusion – Demons will have affinities for certain skills, so players can better plan the outcome of fusions.
Classic SMT Combat – Prospective Hunters will exploit weaknesses, boost attributes, and unlock skill bonuses with the returning Press Turn and Smirking systems.
Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse is slated for release on September 20 of this year for the Nintendo 3DS in North America, while no concrete date set yet for Europe.
