    Synopsis

    Honor. Duty. Justice. Bravery. Integrity. Courage. As a Samurai warrior, these are your credos. These are the ideals that run through your veins and fill your lungs. As you live and die, you will uphold these virtues — even when you are facing a demon hoard that threatens everything you are fighting to protect. It's 1492 Japan, and you have been bestowed the secret task to protect the eastern kingdom of Mikado from a demon menace with the aid of a special tool called a Gauntlet. But this mission is not as simple as good versus evil, justice versus corruption or human versus demon. You must discover and understand a maze of factions within the human group to form alliances, set paths and shape the destiny of the world. With the fate of Mikado hanging in the balance and your life a tangle of battles, those virtues may be the only things keeping you going. In Shin Megami Tensei IV, it's strategize or succumb, protect or perish, fight or die. Do you have what it takes to place honor above all else?

    Dive into an epic RPG storyline, teeming with threats as you engage in a fierce battle between God and demons. You must leave the safety of the kingdom in order to defend it — but you must carefully consider every move you make. Your choices affect you, other NPCs and the outcome of the game. Your strategizing determines the fate of the eastern kingdom of Mikado and the postapocalyptic remnants of Tokyo. With more than 400 demons to recruit, collect and fuse together, you will be constantly challenged to balance the strengths of your demons to seize victory. Every battle requires tactical thinking, since the Press Turn system can offer vital rewards or devastating penalties. If you can pinpoint an enemy's weakness, you'll receive an extra turn to exploit. But if you play recklessly, you may lose a turn, therefore providing the enemy with an opening to attack. A decade in the making and created with the talents of the development staff for games like Persona, Soul Hackers, Digital Devil Saga, SMT: Strange Journey and more, Shin Megami Tensei IV requires every ounce of wit, courage and virtue you have. Now is the chance to prove yourself as a true Samurai warrior.
