There’s a new Shin Megami Tensei IV game coming to 3DS this year, and now there is a story trailer to go alongside the game. Announced back in April, the Atlus title will be releasing in the summer of this year for Nintendo 3DS. The trailer above will give you a good look at some of the key characters in the game and what exactly is going on to give the game the name Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse.
The story in Apocalypse will cross over with the story beats of the original Shin Megami Tensei IV. Tokyo is being torn apart because of a war between angels and demons, and it is up to players to team up with other Hunters to save the world from destruction. One of the key new features of Apocalypse, is its inclusion of partners in its combat. Players will have up to seven partners they can bring into battle with them that have their own unique abilities which will offer a wide range of combinations for Hunters to toy with. You’ll need it because there are over 450 demons in this game, breaking a record for the series.
There will also be new affinities when fusing demons – a pivotal mechanic in the Shin Megami Tensei series – and the return of both the Press Turn system and the Smirk system. The Press Turn system allows for players to have more turns to exploit enemy weaknesses, while the Smirk system allows for certain skills to receive bonuses and gives boosts to characters’ offensive and defensive stats.
