Shin Megami Tensei IV Has A Pre-Order Costume On Amazon U.S., Too

By Ishaan . April 30, 2013 . 1:20pm

A while ago, we reported that Shin Megami Tensei IV has two exclusive pre-order bonus DLC costumes at Amazon Canada and EB Games Canada. The Amazon costume is now available in the U.S. as well. You can avail it by pre-ordering the game on Amazon.  Here’s a look at it again:




Meanwhile, EB Games in the U.S. now have an SMTIV pre-order costume as well, but unfortunately, it’s the same costume as the one you’ll get from GameStop, not the black-and-red hoodie that EB Canada are giving away.


Shin Megami Tensei IV will be released in North America on July 16th.

    Funny I tweeted Amazon Games last week about that and didn’t get a response from them. I like that costume so I’m glad I pre-ordered from them :)

    • SMT

      me 2 i pre-ordered this game :)

    As a Canadian, I don’t think its as cool anymore, now to see its coming to the US. But it doesn’t take anything away from how cool it looks.

    • Herok♞

      you guys still have the best costume so I don’t see the need to complain.

      • imaguni

        Yeaaah. As a Canadian, I’m glad to see a North American company make something in reference to us that does not involve winter, maple syrup or Canadian bacon…

        • Maybe they’ll have a moose costume? There’s already one with bunny ears.

          • imaguni

            I like that! A beaver costume works too.

          • Solomon_Kano

            Or a Mountie!

    • revenent hell

      I don’t understand why you would think its less “cool” because its a bonus for someone else as well.
      Most DLC that is not console specific eventually gets released anyways as “paid for” for everyone to get.
      I also don’t remember them stating anywhere that these would be solely for Canada, sure they said that the costumes where bonus from different shops there, but I never got the impression that this DLC would be region specific so to speak,so I kind of assumed the US would get them as a bonus from various places as well

    • Because it’s not exclusive to Canada? I’m not sure I follow this at all. What should be cool is the fact that you’re getting in the first place. Considering you commented as a guest I fear never getting an answer (._. ; )

  • Is someone actually gonna use that in game? All these dlc costumes look pretty crap IMO

    • riceisnice

      Are you kidding? I’ve always wanted to be an Amazon Shipping Box!

      • You got a point there!

        • Just so you know, rice is a chick, so maybe think twice before making comments like that. :P

          • DesmaX

            … Yeah, I really didn’t think about that.

            Should I delete my post? I really didn’t mean any harm

          • M’iau M’iaut

            Drop the comment keep the picture — let the pussy be an AMZN shipping box. It says all which needs to be said.

      • vileBrenman

        Solid snake ain’t got nothing on this box costume.

    • That guy who hates Spike

      Its just another small reason to buy SMT4 at launch, to go with the large bonuses they’re giving to their first consumers.

    • Keep in in my inventory for the novelty. I”m sure there may be some other weird costumes in the game too

    • Zeik56

      Absolutely. If the stats are good then why not? Besides. I actually kind of like the Amazon one.

  • Stephen

    Amazon box costume? Totally wearing it as soon as I can and as long as I can. :D

  • revenent hell

    The white bits of attire really remind me to much of the manikins in nocturne for some reason….Except they wore their robes better and here I constantly think he is wearing his pajamas…
    I also ,as some have said, think the DLC costumes are really not good, though I have to say out of them all this one I disliked the least.

  • If you went to the actual SMTIV site you have known this for a while now…

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    yeah…. way ahead of this

  • AuraGuyChris

    Jack Frost: Hee-ho, you preordered from Amazon?
    MC: Yeah, and this kewl Power Glove as a bonus. It’s so bad.

    • Detrimont

      um… you have that glove anyway, it’s the same in all the outifits, as it’s part of the story/gameplay

      • AuraGuyChris

        Should I explain the joke?
        The glove he gets at the start of the game looks like a Power Glove.

        • Detrimont

          i know, i was just saying

  • It’s sad that even though I did pre-order it from Amazon a long while ago, I still don’t care about the outfit. I’d rather have the game just cost less on Amazon or something like that lol

  • Eric Harris

    I really don’t care about a digital in game costume? You know what I care about? getting a copy that is not damaged. These special slipcases are fragile and I’ve had so much bad luck with amazon and elsewhere with this. I found SMTSH at best buy, it was flawless and I picked it up. I’m going to hope best buy has SMTIV also because I’m tired of dealing with the stress of shipping back 5+ copies to get one I like.

  • Exkaiser

    Huh, I didn’t notice before that it was just a retexture of his default coat.

  • remote_viewer

    this has to be trolling the very idea of super lame retailer DLC, right…?

  • I think it’s kinda quirky. They’re all pretty bad just for them being giant marketing stunts, but the idea you’re wearing a coat of cardboard… well it’s more protective than the Demi-fiend going shirtless.

  • Evan Little

    Wow 3DS games are getting preorder DLC now!?
