Yesterday, we showed two factions in Shin Megami Tensei IV that survivors flocked to after Tokyo fell to ruins. Atlus also revealed some new info about the characters that lead the Cult of Gaia and Asura Association. Players will also run into a mysterious black samurai who appears throughout the story.
A man of high stature, working for the Asura Association in Tokyo. He is widely respected by everyone around him for negotiating with the demons to keep order in Tokyo. It is still unknown as far as what measures he took to negotiate with the dark side.
She is a member of a religious organization in Tokyo, known as the Cult of Gaia. She doesn’t agree with Tayama and their ways of negotiating with the demons, and continuously fights alongside the Cult of Gaia to eradicate the demons. It is said that those who possess the same level skill of Kaga are few in numbers.
The mysterious Black Samurai appears numerous times in front of the main characters. She seems to speak in riddles containing cryptic clues every time she appears before vanishing. For an unknown reason, she has a vast knowledge of both Mikado of the East and Tokyo.
Shin Megami Tensei IV is slated for release in 2013 on Nintendo 3DS.
