Shin Megami Tensei IV Apocalypse Release Date Announced

ATLUS has recently released a new trailer for Shin Megami Tensei IV Apocalypse, as well as revealed its release date: September 20, 2016. Shin Megami Tensei IV Apocalypse will be launched on the Nintendo 3DS.

The new trailer introduces the cast of characters. The main protagonist is Nanashi, a Hunter whose death leads to him making a contract with Dagda, coming back to life as a Godslayer. Nanashi is accompanied by both new characters and returning characters from Shin Megami Tensei IV. New characters include his childhood friend Asahi, Ashura-kai agent Hallelujah, Crusader Captain Gaston, and Ring of Gaea assassin Toki. Returning characters include the Hunter Nozomi, the samurais Navarre and Isabeau, and the previous protagonist Flynn.

The cast will need to deal with the battle between Lucifer and Merkabah. However, a third side has appeared in the battle between Law and Chaos: the Divine Powers. Led by Krishna, the Divine Powers seek to bring an end to both Law and Chaos, though their plans for humanity do not seem entirely benevolent.
