Shin Megami Tensei IV Final Overview
Shin Megami Tensei IV Final (真・女神転生IV FINAL) is a followup to the 2013 game SMT IV.
It will feature multiple endings and plot branches in a brand new story revolving around a war between the Polytheistic Gods Alliance lead by Krishna and the monotheistic gods lead by Lucifer and Merkabah. You play as the hero, a god killer in training dragged into the conflict.
While SMT IV Final was developed to be enjoyed by new players to the series, those with save data from SMT IV will be able to obtain some items and equipment.
Producer Kazuyuki Yamai has said that the game will include improvements to “things like controls and demon conversations.” Other improvements include a revamped demons fusion system and a newly renovated UI.
No localization announcements have been made for other regions, but a North American English version seems incredibly likely due to Atlus’ track record of giving fans basically everything.
