If you’re a fan of Megami Tensei or just a fan of dungeon crawlers in general then you’ll be pleased by the announcement that the latest game in the Megaten series, Shin Megami Tensei IV, is coming to the 3DS. The news was broken by Japanese retail blog Sinobi, who revealed the news in one of their tweets. This news was later backed up by the release of the official website for the game, although this currently contains no notable content.
Shin Megami Tensei, roughly translated as True Goddess Reincarnation, is a first person dungeon crawler RPG. The new game in the series developed by Atlus is set to follow the standard of gameplay mechanics set by previous games in the series. Incidentally the last Shin Megami Tensei game developed by Atlus, Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey, was exclusive to the Nintendo DS. Only time will tell if Shin Megami Tensei IV will follow this exclusivity.
As expected details of this new game are scarce but with a website now up and running I’m sure it won’t be long before more information on the long awaited return of Shin Megami Tensei appears.
