Shin Megami Tensei 4 searches for Samurai in Europe, other regions on October 30
By Thomas Schulenberg Madden 18 Coins PS4
Good news, non-American JRPG fans – your extended wait for Shin Megami Tensei 4
is (probably) almost over! A recent press release from publisher Atlus lists a digital-only release on October 30 for Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Australia and New Zealand. Since SMT4
's classes started last year in the United States, the 3DS' venture will be priced at 18 or 20 euros, with DLC reaching the new regions within the month following launch.
The game's most recent European delay was due to
"last-minute issues" back in September, but Managing Editor Susan Arendt's review remarks
has "more than enough going on to hook you early and keep you playing for a long, long time," so it might all be worth the wait.
