Shin Megami Tensei IV, the latest new game in the Shin Megami Tensei series is headed for the 3DS next year, and developer Atlus has released some new information on the game.
As can be seen in the trailer that was released last month, the game characters are from a middle-ages sort of world and through some turn of events manage to find their way into modern day Tokyo. According to the official website, the characters are part of a group of warriors known as "Samurai" in a country known as "Mikado Kuni of the East" that is ruled by king "Ahazuyamikado." The Samurai are chosen through a "Gauntlet Ceremony" and wear special gauntlets that allow them to summon and control demons into battle; a technology beyond the means of their civilization. Players take the part of a young man from the village of "Kichijouji" who is chosen to be a Samurai. Strangely enough, the other members who are chosen along with him are all people he met in a strange dream.
