Today Atlus USA released a new trailer for Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse for E3 2016. This minute and a half long video tries to highlight some of the game’s story while also showing off a bit of gameplay and battle systems that players will use when the game is released. The story of Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse is one of human pawns being shuffled across a chessboard by the higher deities.
One lone Hunter, the game’s protagonist, meets an early demise and through a pact with a lesser god, is brought back to life in exchange for his pledge of servitude. From there, the protagonist allies with other Hunters in the ruins of post-apocalyptic Tokyo beginning a plot that crosses over with the events of the original Shin Megami Tensei IV. Currently Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse is set to be released in Summer 2016 in North America while a European release is currently being looked into.
