Shin Megami Tensei IV Strategy Guide - First Look

In A World Fraught with Peril, A Little Strategy Goes a Long Way

In Shin Megami Tensei IV, being a samurai of the Eastern Kingdom of Mikado requires intense training and meticulous focus during combat. Fortunately for the samurai-in-training, pre-orders and a limited run of first prints of the game will include a strategy guide to help endure the trials of combat. The 176-page soft-cover guide was developed specially for SMTIV by Prima Games, one of the leading guide-makers for video games.

In addition to walkthroughs, charts, maps, combat tips and fusion tables, the lengthy guide also contains select pre-production artwork of the game's characters, designed by Masayuki Doi.

Several pages of the strategy guide are available to view here:

To reiterate - all pre-orders, regardless of retailer, will include the strategy guide, a component of the Limited Edition Box Set. Availability for non-pre-orders is not guaranteed.

Shin Megami Tensei IV will be exclusive to the Nintendo 3DS system and sold as a premium title beginning this summer. The game is rated M for Mature by the ESRB. More details will be revealed in the future, with updates on the official SMTIV website at
