Sega announced on Tuesday that the Dx2 Shin Megami Tensei: Liberation iOS and Android game is slated for release next week. Sega will announce an exact release date on the game's official website soon.
Riichirō Yamada, the game's producer, previously hinted last month that the game will launch in mid-January.
Sega Games and Atlus will release the game worldwide following an initial release in Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Macau. Pre-registration for the game launched in Japan on November 10, and a campaign is offering in-game rewards depending on how many people pre-register.
The game will offer demon fusion and negotiations in 3D dungeons. The game will also have an augmented-reality feature that will launch after the game's launch. An earlier preview video showed a Shin Megami Tensei demon appearing in the "real world" through a smartphone camera.
Makoto Fukami (Berserk 2016, Psycho-Pass) is writing the scenario and Tatsurō Iwamoto (Ace Attorney games, Monster Strike the Animation) is designing the characters. The story follows a group of "Liberators" who battle against a mysterious organization called the Acolytes in the streets of Akihabara.
