Shin Megami Tensei IV 3DS XL Artwork Conceals Law And Chaos

By Spencer . March 11, 2013 . 10:57pm

Atlus and Nintendo have a special Shin Megami Tensei IV 3DS XL model. The limited edition console has a neat design with a figure ground image. This design has both law and chaos on it. What you see depends on how you look at the 3DS XL.


Demons are on one side and angels are on the other. 3dsxa



The Shin Megami Tensei IV limited edition 3DS XL will retail for 25,880 yen ($268) and it comes out on May 23, the same day as the 3DS game.

  • Detrimont

    Still hoping for it (even though I have a 3DS) to come overseas (though it probably won’t)

  • Jungo

    I can’t see the angels very well, personally. I can see the demons well enough, but not the angels.

    • gk2012

      I only see demons on both pictures. :/

      • “Adam glanced up. In one sense there was just clear air overhead. In another, stretching off to infinity, were the hosts of Heaven and Hell, wingtip to wingtip. If you looked really closely, and had been specially trained, you could tell the difference.”-Terry Pratchett, Good Omens

      • Detrimont

        well, they are all counted as demons in the games, they just have different factions

  • Xmas Lopez

    I would buy this so hard. Man, someone bring these special edition XLs over already so I can upgrade without regrets :/

    • Same here. I’ve been looking for an excuse to upgrade for so long!

      • kmantle

        …as long as if it includes a physical copy of the game, and not a digital one

        • The game is going to come pre-loaded with the system.

  • komiko12

    This is quite cool.. The difference between the two factions are made as clear as black and white.

  • Farid Belkacemi

    Niiiiiiiiiiiiiiice ! I want that in Europe :)

  • Lazulis

    Come on, bring this one over! It’s so cool! If it weren’t region locked, I’d import it. That’s how great it is!

    • brian

      Well did you ever plan to maybe get a JPN 3DS?
      This seems like a perfect opportunity to, and it’ll be bound to have lots of japan-only games.

  • If the system wasn’t region locked, and I didn’t just pre-order the Fire Emblem limited edition last week, I’d be so all over it. WOW, just wow.

  • gamerdude

    that is beautiful

  • DDanny

    Still waiting for a decent looking angel in the newly designed demons, so far they all look like abominations

    • Shinra

      Well angels are supposed to look like that, I mean, Metatron its supposed to have one million eyes and mouths covering his body, and every mouth speaks a different language. So… yeah angels are pretty freaky.

  • Pockystix

    is neutral on the back or sumfin?

  • isotrex

    Damn this region locks!!!

  • AuraGuyChris

    Demons are angels? Who knew.

  • Junko Enoshima

    Incubator boner!

  • Juan Andrés Valencia

    Release an US version of this replacing the angels and demons with a big green Mara and it’s a deal.

  • This coming west would be fantastic. Something to upgrade to

  • will there be a NA version? why the heck did they have to put a region lock!!!?… we should start flooding their main website with complaints. to top that NA has THE worst colors blue, red, pink and pikatchu …realllyyyy? -_- at least give us a black or white xl so us grownups wont feel too silly using one in public :P
