Shin Megami Tensei IV (30th Oct)

Recommended Posts

I think I'll get this. I have only player Persona 3 from this series before and so far it has been a bit... boring.

 

BTW, is it confirmed who will release this in Europe? I have understood, that Nintendo will, but I have not found any certain information.

I thought last we heard we didn't know who was publishing it, just that it's coming.

NIS is doing Soul Hackers and Etrian Odyssey 4 correct?

Yes, NISA is bringing Soul Hackers and Etrian Odyssey 4. Ghostlight still has rights to bring Devil Survivor 2, but we haven't heard anything on it since March.

 

Might be interesting tough, if SMT IV, Sould Hackers and Devil Survivor 2 would all release around the same time, all by different publishers. Regarding SMT IV, I believe it should be coming Q3 2013 in Europe, but after that Direct, we haven't heard anything. If it's really coming this Fall, it probably is not by NISA, as their page does not mention it. Soul Hackers and Etrian Odyssey 4 are there.

Well all I know is that the Persona games are a spin-off from the main Megami Tensei series, although the Persona series as a whole has been well received so you should at least finish it off if you get the chance so you can try some of the other games.

Nope, only that it will arrive this year.

Do we even know who's publishing it in PAL regions yet? I'm guessing it's either NIS or Nintendo.

 

There's such a large concentration of RPGs set to release during the second half of this year.

Apparently NoE are working on the translation.

 

French Nintendo honcho Stéphane Bole gave an interview for the web version of a major French publication (LeFigaro.fr), in which he talks about sales in France and various stuff.

 

What caught my attention is that right after he mentions how Bravely Default sold 60 000 units in France (a respectable number), he mentions that they are "hard at work on the French translation of Shin Megami Tensei, another Japanese RPG".

They should just release it in US English and patch in the translations or something.

Weird that it's digital only but no worries, I'll take what I can get :) looking forward to it.

Seems Atlus are publishing this. Did Nintendo drop it? Did Atlus take it back? Sounded like Nintendo was still handling the localisation recently.

Digital only on a Nintendo platform means I'll be waiting forever for that price drop.

*sigh*

I hope it's going to be priced at 25€ max. Such a ridiculously long wait with no real confirmations at any point has made me mad. Shut up and take only half of my money.

Totally happy with £17.99 :) Don't mind a digital version either, in fact the fact it's eShop only probably accounts for the low price.

Great price - almost makes the wait worth it. I was prepared to pay double this to be honest. Roll on September!

Never played a Shin Megami Tensei game. It's supposed to be like Persona? Played Persona 4 Golden (well...not much, but...).

 

What's the series like? Do I need to play the first games to understand IV? I love JRPGs and would like to use my 3DS again before Smash.

If you haven't played much of P4G then stop what you're doing and don't even think about playing anything else until you complete it. ;)

Blabla. I know it's a great game. But it's too time consuming to play right now. I can hardly manage The Last of Us :p
