Shin Megami Tensei IV, the latest main entry of the Shin Megami Tensei series created by Atlus, has yet to be released in Europe and it looks like it still won’t be for another two months.
According to the mobile version of the game’s official website, Shin Megami Tensei IV will be released during November on the European 3DS eShop. While the news has appeared on the game’s official website, Atlus has yet to confirm it so we must teat this as a rumor until an official confirmation comes in.
A November release could be problematic for the game, considering it would be released close to another Atlus role playing game, Persona Q: Shadow Of The Labyrinth. Considering how the Persona series is more popular than the Shin Megami Tensei series, the November release date could lead to really bad sales.
Shin Megami Tensei IV includes many of the series staples like demon negotiations, the press turn battle system and more. Most of the series mechanics have been refined in a way that makes playing the game a real joy for all fans of the series. Shin Megami Tensei IV also includes the usual karma system which will influence some parts of the story as well as the ending.
Shin Megami Tensei IV is now available in Japan and North America on Nintendo 3DS. We will keep you updated on the European release of the game as soon as possible so stay tuned for all the latest news.
UPDATE: The game has been officially delayed to late October. Atlus’ PR Manager John Hardin has confirmed that the delay was caused by a specific issue with the European release of the game.
