Atlus Announces Western Release Date For Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse

3DS fans in the west will finally be able to experience Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse, or Final, with its newly announced release date, which was announced by Atlus. According to the blog post the team published, the game will drop sometime later this year in 2016.

My fellow 3DS and Shin Megami Tensei IV: Finale or now “Apocalypse” fans will now be able to get one step closer to getting the game over in the West according to a blog post that publisher Atlus posted. Playing a few of the games in the series, I’m sure quite a few folks will be excited to get their hands on the western version that’s due out sometime this Summer for Nintendo’s handheld device.

Something worth noting, not all of the blog post revolves around the release date and when fans can expect to see the game drop, but more so the translation and localization of the name of the game so that it won’t be too long and could summarize the meaning behind the title.

Additionally, the post noted that the team at Atlus discussed a subtitle that would “make sense, sounds good, and looks good on the box.” After further elaborating on different decisions and alternate names that could be a potential candidate for the western release, they settled on “Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse,” which is different from the original “Final” title.

You can check out the trailer for Apocalypse below.

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.

As of now, folks will most likely have to wait until they drop an official due date for the Summer release, and when the JRPG will land in the west for 3DS.

For those that are interested in the upcoming release for the game, they can read the official blog post that Atlus published over on The original Japanese 3DS release for Shin Megami Tensei IV: Final first launched on February 10th in Japan.
