Shin Megami Tensei 4 Trailer: Learn How to Inherit the Samurai Way
Brush up on your Bushido as you learn about the "Samurai Way" and how to befriend demons in the new Shin Megami Tensei trailer.
The new 3DS-exclusive role-playing game from Atlus will be coming our way relatively soon, but for now we have to rely on the release of trailers like this in order to sate our Shin Megami Tensei cravings.
Though the video is short, we're shown a little bit of gameplay and are introduced to some of the mechanics we'll see in the game proper, such as demon recruit and demon fusing. And since your character is a newly-appointed samurai, it is your job to face these demons head-on.
Like in past Shin Megami Tensei games, you can recruit certain demons that you fight by speaking to them and appealing to their demonic nature. Once recruited, demons show up in your battle party and can fight for you in the series' signature first-person perspective battles.
You can also fuse demons in Shin Megami Tensei 4, as explained by Burroughs, the game's handy artificial intelligence. You simply pick two demons, send them to the Demon Fusion App, and then watch as their powers are combined in order to create a brand new demon. If this fusion system is similar to any of the previous ones in the series, then you're going to be spending a lot of time mixing and matching your demons.
Watch the trailer above and let us know what you think of all the demonic fun you can have in Shin Megami Tensei 4. Look for it store shelves when it's released on July 16th.
