Demon slaying season is on -- Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse releases today
Today, ATLUS released Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse for the Nintendo 3DS. The game serves as the newest entry in the Shin Megami Tensei series, which was established in 1992.
Apocalypse serves a sequel of sorts for Shin Megami Tensei IV. But the game isn't a direct sequel, nor does it require a player to play through SMTIV to enjoy.
The story is about a young demon hunter who meets an untimely end. However, at death's door an unknown demon, Dagda, grants him life. The hero agrees to the demon's terms in exchange for his life. The game will then unfold as he follows Dagda's whims to topple the powerful demons and angels ruling Tokyo.
The game features a battle system that promotes taking advantage of enemy weaknesses. The game will also allow players a large number of quests in-game, plus some extra downloadable content. These quests will present challenges that range in difficulty. You'll also be able to recruit and create hundreds of demons for battle.
Fans of JRPGS can purchase Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse at retail locations and digital stores today.
