Third Mythology Video for Shin Megami Tensei IV: Final Features Medusa

The demon with a gaze of stone is back once again in the latest trailer for Shin Megami Tensei IV: Final

Shin Megami Tensei IV: Final


The third video showcasing select mythological beings within the Shin Megami Tensei IV: Final universe has been released. This time, the spotlight is on Medusa.

Medusa, a demon frequently present within the confines of the Shin Megami Tensei series, is a mythological figure that many are quite familiar with even outside of SMT. A hideous creature with an appearance that is half-woman and half-snake, Medusa has the ability to turn any living creature unfortunate to gaze directly into her eyes to stone in an instant. While Medusa had already met her demise at the hands of a certain group of individuals, she has been brought back into this world by the Polytheistic Gods. Below is her profile information from the original Shin Megami Tensei IV:

“A monster of Greek lore; one of the three Gorgon sisters. She had snakes for hair, bronze scales for skin, golden wings on her back, sharp fangs, and eyes that could turn anyone who looked straight into them into stone. In some traditions, she was a beautiful woman, and her snake hair was her only ugly feature. With the help of the goddess Athena, Perseus was able to behead her.”

Though the mythology video is new, Medusa has already been featured in a previous video back in October of 2015 which showcases how the combat within Shin Megami Tensei IV: Final. She is shown to have at least some memory of her previous life and demise, as she comments on how Final’s protagonist has an attitude that “is like that kid”.

Shin Megami Tensei IV: Final is set to release in Japan on February the 10th; only 5 days from now.
