Shin Megami Tensei IV is coming to the 3DS this Summer; specifically on July 16th. When the title launches, all first run copies will be of the Limited Edition variety and will contain a few special items for Shin Megami Tensei fans.
- Strategy & Design Book – Produced by Prima Games, longtime publishers of video game strategy content, and packed with walkthroughs, charts, maps, tips, and more, this official starter strategy guide will give the newly selected Samurai a distinct advantage as they begin their journey through the Eastern Kingdom of Mikado and beyond. The design side of the book will feature full-color pages of artwork ranging from concept art to in-game pieces to never-used designs from new Shin Megami Tensei series character designer, Masayuki Doi.
- Shin Megami Tensei Music Collection – Offering a collection of tracks specially selected from across the 20-plus-year history of the Shin Megami Tensei series, this CD presents the series’ musical history highlights from the ethereal atmospheric music to the classic power-guitar anthems. It also includes a special recording exclusive to the Music Collection CD.
- Collectible Slipcase Packaging – SMTIV will come in a deluxe-sized slipcase package featuring full-color key art designed by Masayuki Doi and depicting the divergent paths of law and chaos between which Samurai must travel and make their choices knowing of the potential foes and allies that lay on either side.
It is unclear how many of these Limited Editions have been made, so if you think you’ll really want it, you should probably be ready to run out and pick it up (or buy it online).
Shin Megami Tensei IV has players joining the Samurai, the sacred protectors of the Eastern Kingdom of Mikado. Players will fight with other factions present in the game in an attempt to defend Mikado from an army of demons. The game claims that the decisions you make throughout the game will have a lasting impact on the rest of the game and story.
