Shin Megami Tensei IV Limited Edition Sneak Peek


Look at what showed up at VGB HQ this week: Yes, it’s an early copy of the samurai-tastic Shin Megami Tensei IV Limited Edition box set, available with all first-print copies of the game when it ships to retailers on July 16th. (Pre-order isn’t mandatory, but chances are you won’t have much luck finding one straight off the shelf after release.) Atlus PR lifted the embargo on unboxing coverage today so I figured I’d take a quick moment to share some pictures, along with the official unboxing video produced by Atlus.

To recap, the Limited Edition includes the game, a soundtrack sampler CD with a mix of 8 songs spanning the series, a Strategy & Design Book jam packed with 176 pages of artwork, maps, region guides, fusion charts and more, as well as a nice oversized slipcase box (it’s roughly the size of an Xbox 360 case) to sheath the game and collectibles in.

So, what’s the game like? I honestly can’t say as I haven’t started in on it, and even if I had I wouldn’t be at liberty to tell you about it just yet anyway (embargoed, yo). But I expect to give it plenty of attention on the road over the coming weekend and will have more to report very soon. Stay tuned!
