Shin Megami Tensei IV Finally Releasing in Europe… As Download-Only Title

SMT IV

This’ll be somewhat bittersweet for European fans. Shin Megami Tensei IV was released in Japan and North America last year, and in both regions it was released in a long-box with a tribute CD containing prelude remixes of past mainline SMT games, a concept artbook with liner notes to said CD, and for — NA fans — a mini strategy guide that came part of the artbook. European fans were hoping for some sort of announcement about a release, sometime taking to the European Miiverse community for Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers. It was announced for Europe last year during a Nintendo Direct. Fans suspected that Nintendo of Europe would be publishing the game. Others thought it would be NIS America doing it due to a partnership between Atlus and NISA. But it looks like Atlus will be doing it themselves, and the only way to go is digital.

While they’re finally getting the game they’ve been asking for, they’ll be missing out on the extra goodies the other regions have gotten. On the bright side, most of us on the staff liked the game a lot, pretty much cracking into the top 5 games of 2013 for anyone that happened to play it (there were top 5s for each staff member). We don’t want to spoil much, but to our European readers that know their SMT, you still gotta know your buffs and debuffs, and early on learn to like the hell out of Blight. And watch out for “David”.
