Shin Megami Tensei 4 is "the first true successor to 2004's Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne," and promises game-changing decisions and branching storylines. "Decisions players make throughout the course of the story will have lasting repercussions, as the fate of the world hangs in the balance," Atlus says.
Shin Megami Tensei 4 will lean on the series' iconic demon-collecting mechanics, enabling players to recruit and fuse together over 400 different demons for battle. The Press Turn battle system will also make a return, encouraging combatants to coordinate attacks in the correct order to exploit enemy weaknesses.
The system has been used in other Shin Megami Tensei games, though it was originally introduced back in 2003 with Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne on the PlayStation 2.
