Shin Megami Tensei IV

Development is currently underway for Shin Megami Tensei V on Switch, though it’ll likely be some time until its release. Shin Megami Tensei IV, meanwhile, has been out for a while now – in two versions no less, SMT IV and SMT IV: Apocalypse (subtitled “Final” in Japan). If you own a Japanese 3DS and have been meaning to catch up on SMT IV, Atlus has got you covered: on April 19, the Shin Megami Tensei IV Double Hero Pack will be released in Japan, which will contain both the standard game and SMT IV: Final. It will cost 4,980 Yen.

No word yet on whether or not this will be released in the West, though it seems somewhat unlikely.

Shin Megami Tensei IV: Official Artworks is seeing localization. It’s officially due out in early March, but it seems Amazon may have stock as soon as February 29.

Shin Megami Tensei IV’s long journey to Europe is almost over. The 3DS eShop is listing an October 30 release date along with a €19.99 price point. While not officially confirmed by Atlus, eShop listings are generally accurate these days.

Shin Megami Tensei IV will not be launching in Europe this month as originally expected. Atlus PR manager John Hardin confirmed on Twitter that the game is now scheduled for October.

Why the delay? Atlus “encountered a few last-minute issues specific to the EU version, and we have to fix them,” Hardin explained.

Hardin’s Twitter message also contained an apology to European fans who have been waiting for Shin Megami Tensei IV.
