Product Details:

The Shin Megami Tensei RPG series began in Japan in 1992 on Super Famicom. Neither this game nor its sequel was published in North America. In 2004 Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne was the first SMT game in North America, although "III" was removed from the PlayStation 2 title. The SMT series later spun-off several sub-series, including Persona, Devil Summoner, Devil Survivor, Digital Devil Saga, and the standalone Strange Journey. This new RPG is considered the fourth in the Shin Megami Tensei mainline series.

In 1492, the Eastern Kingdom of Mikado is protected by high walls, with the castle and its king at the center. A young warrior, 18 years old, has just been chosen to become a Samurai, one who, with the aid of a special tool called a Gauntlet, will serve as a secret protector of the city. It is the duty of the Samurai to exterminate a demon threat of which its citizens are unaware. However, the situation is not as simple as human versus demon. There are factions within the human group that must be discovered and understood in order for alliances to be formed, paths set, and the destiny of the world decided.

A World to Discover, A Mystery to Uncover
The life of a Samurai is fraught with peril. Players must leave the safety of the kingdom in order to defend it from the invading demons. There the story unfolds as they become involved in a fierce battle between God and demons. Shin Megami Tensei IV is a single player experience.

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. Players will constantly be challenged with balancing the strengths of their demons to ultimately excel in battle.

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 Eastern Kingdom of Mikado and the post-apocalyptic remnants of Tokyo 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. But there are dangers as well...reckless attacks against demons cause players to lose their turns and give the enemy an opening to strike back.

An All-Star Development Team
A decade in the making, the development team boasts the creative talent of staff from such well-known games and series as Persona, SMT: Nocturne, Devil Summoner, Trauma Center, SMT: Strange Journey, Digital Devil Saga, and Soul Hackers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Too Hard to Start On This game is far too difficult to get into the story. Even on low difficulties it becomes confusing and the "random generatiion" is too random. The Shin Megami Tensei games have been my favorite for a long time, and this game follows that but if you havent been playing the series for a while then it's going to be hard for you to start here. I recommend taking it slower on Persona then move towards Nocturn or Digital Devil THEN come back for this one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's SMT4 Whats not to love? Shin Megami Tensei IV is a spectacular game, so much so that I bought the Limited Edition and then when my dog chewed it up I bought it again even though I was nearly done with the game. I can't tell you in words how much I love this game. Basically you go to a city and the gauntlet chooses you as a samurai. Soon you learn about demons existing and must kill them or get them to join you. Then the "Black Samurai" is changing people into demons and you must capture her, which leads you to a parallel world in Tokyo.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best RPG On The 3DS You wont find a game like this everyday. Shin Megami Tensei 4 is the fourth installment in the SMT series, and if you've played SMT 3 Nocturne, you'll feel right at home with this one. This game is also insanely difficult, so be ready to die, alot. Without having this review drag on for hours, to put simply, this game belongs in every RPG lovers 3DS library. Its worth every penny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epic! This was my first Shin Megami Tensei game. I didn't know anything about this franchise until I got this game. This game is very fun and now I'm totally into playing more SMT games. This game is fairly difficult and challenging.(well part of it was because I was new) The graphics are amazing. The characters are amazing. The story is amazing. Yea, so this game is simply amazing!
