Shin Megami Tensei 4 Coming to North America This Summer

Shin Megami Tensei 4, you cannot get here soon enough!

The Japanese release date for Shin Megami Tensei 4 was recently confirmed to be May 23, and it looks like we won't be waiting long for the much-awaited mainline SMT title to see a localization. Atlus has confirmed that Shin Megami Tensei 4 will be seeing a release in North America this summer!

As a long-time Megaten fan, I could not be more excited to see a main Shin Megami Tensei game again. Remember when everyone thought Strange Journey was supposed to be the fourth entry to the main series? Great game, but in a way I'm glad there is a true (named) successor to the series.

This will be the first SMT title in 10 years in Japan, and the first one in 9 years in North America. Shin Megami Tensei 2 and Nocturne were and remain two of my favorite console RPGs of any generation.

Expect more official announcements on the English release of SMT4 as summer grows near. Time for me to get a 3DS, I guess.

    I just hope the protag doesn't turn into a door at the end of this one.
