posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Atlus USA announced on Wednesday that it will release the Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse (Shin Megami Tensei IV: Final) Nintendo 3DS game in the Americas on September 20. Atlus USA has not yet confirmed a release date for Europe, but noted that the European release will get both a physical and digital release.
Atlus USA also began streaming a trailer for the game. The video previews the game's English dub, and introduces the game's main cast members.
The game launched in Japan on February 10. While the gameplay is similar to Shin Megami Tensei IV, and the world is the same, Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse can be played without knowledge of the previous game. The story focuses on humans living in the remains of Tokyo, where the protagonist dies and is resurrected under the service of the god Dagda.
Kazuyuki Yamai produced the game with director Satoshi Ōyama. Masayuki Doi designed the characters, and Ryōta Kozuka was the sound composer. Kazuma Kaneko is credited the original worldview concept and series demon designs. All of these main staffers have worked on previous entries in the franchise.
Shin Megami Tensei IV shipped in Japan and North America in 2013 and in Europe in 2014.
