The year is 1492 and the Eastern Kingdom of Mikado is a land in peril. In recent years, the hordes of demons emerging from Naraku Tower has increased, and the kingdom needs more protectors. Every 18 year-old must undergo the tradition of the Gauntlet Rite – where youths try on a magical gauntlet, and the select few the gauntlet responds to are chosen as Samurai, the sworn protectors of the Eastern Kingdom of Mikado.
Shin Megami Tensei IV (SMTIV) blends familiar features from previous SMT games with all-new features that take advantage of the Nintendo 3DS system, including:
A World to Discover, A Mystery to Uncover – The story of SMT IV centers around a fierce battle between God and demons.
Demon Collection and Fusion – The core mechanic of the Shin Megami Tensei series returns with more than 400 demons to recruit, collect, and fuse together.
Choices and Consequences – Throughout the player’s journey, they must choose their own path. The choices will affect them, other NPCs, and the overall outcome of the story. Branching story paths require careful consideration since the fates of the Eastern Kingdom of Mikado and the rest of the world hang in the balance.
Pressing the Combat Advantage – The Press Turn system requires strategic thinking for every battle. Pinpointing an enemy’s weakness will provide a vital extra turn for players to exploit.
