Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse E3 2016 Trailer

Atlus released a E3 2016 trailer for Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse. Set in the same world as Shin Megami Tensei IV, Apocalypse follows the story of a young Hunter cadet who is killed by a sudden demon attack. Striking a deal with the demon, Dagda, he becomes Dagda’s Godslayer in exchange for being resurrected.

These are some key features of the game:

The Eternal Struggle Between Gods – The Shin Megami Tensei series, known for exploring the tenuous symbiosis between man and deity , reaches deeper than ever in Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse, as the band of main characters must decide which side of peace or anarchy they are on.

Partner Up for Success – A new twist on the SMTIV combat formula allows players to bring one of seven partners to battle (in addition to the standard three demons), each with their own unique skills and AI. Plus, partners will fill up a meter that will interrupt the enemy, do massive damage, and give players an extra turn. Given the excruciating difficulty of battles in Shin Megami Tensei, the partner system will allow for new player strategies.

Demons Aplenty – Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse has a series record 450+ demons to fight, fuse, or recruit to player parties. With demons from a wide selection of cultures and religions to choose from, players will be able to customize their party to their liking.

Fuse For Affinities – Demon fusion, combining two or more demons to form a more powerful one, is one of the cornerstones of Shin Megami Tensei games, and now demons will have affinities for certain skills, giving players more decisions to make about which skills fusions will inherit.

Press Turns and Smirking – The Press Turn system returns, which gives players (or enemies!) extra turns for exploiting weaknesses. The Smirk system returns as well, which gives huge offensive and defensive boosts to party members (or enemies) and now unlocks bonuses for certain skills, such as insta-kill attacks.

Check out the Trailer:

“We also learn that the game will feature more than 450 demons to capture, train and fuse together in typical Shin Megami Tensei fashion. The series is known for its Pokemon-style capture process where players can then take the demons to their lab and attempt to combine different demons together to make up an all new or improved monster. Monsters will be captured through the same turn-based combat that the series has become renown for.”
