Opening the Book on the Demons of Shin Megami Tensei IV


The best samurai must see attacks coming, and make a preemptive strike. Those willing to take such a strike on Shin Megami Tensei IV, either by pre-ordering it or getting a copy quickly enough after launch, will be well rewarded. The game’s first printing comes with a limited edition box of the game, including a full soundtrack and, most importantly, a combination strategy guide and art book, published by Prima.

This 176-page book holds everything a wayward demon fighter needs, including maps, fusion tables, charts, and a walkthrough. For the artistically-minded samurai, the book also includes a great deal of pre-production artwork of the game’s characters, as illustrated by Masayuki Doi. As a little extra incentive for those on the fence about a prospective career in demon fighting, Atlus has provided a sneak peek at some of the pages in the book. The special edition volume promises to be every player’s best friend, perfect for the person who can’t get enough in-depth RPG combat.

This special edition is not limited to pre-orders, but will only be provided in the game’s first printing, and so are guaranteed to go quickly. Shin Megami Tensei IV will be released in the US on July 16th.
