The 5/23 Japan release of Shin Megami Tensei IV draws ever closer. With time comes more trailers for the game. Much of what is shown in this one is pretty much the same thing we’ve seen so far. Some new scenes are thrown in there, but the general message is nothing we haven’t heard before. There are two things that I did notice though. One is a demon stopping the fight to talk to you after you wipe out almost its whole team. A plea to come to a compromise to let it go, or a desire to join your ranks? Another interesting bit comes up around 3:29. Is that the armor from Strange Journey I see? Why yes, yes it is. Is this just a fanservice battle thrown in for the hell of it, or is there a legitimate link between SMT IV and Strange Journey? Well know for sure when the game releases.
No word yet if it’ll get localized for the West. Still, I have hope they’ll bring it over. So far most MegaTen games have gotten released here after Nocturne. Heck, they’re bringing over Devil Summoner Soul Hackers. They’re even reprinting both of those Raidou Kuzunoha games — for the PS2 no less! So I’m confident it’s coming over.
