    Hopefully it sells that well in the west.

    Ooh, can’t wait to hear that soundtrack

      Same here.
      I remember being blown away by the few notes we heard from the boss theme, for instance.

    We’ve been drowning in SMT IV news lately

    • Ethan_Twain

      I thought that a couple times, but I realized that I always click on them. And they always have a lot of comments… can’t fault the site for providing what the audience is eager to consume.

      But anyway, the game is coming out. So expect another week of heavy SMT IV news with the big launch push in Japan and critical reactions and everything. And then it’ll die back down until Atlus USA starts their launch buildup later in the summer.

      • Fidelis

        Oh, I was just saying. I don’t have a problem with it at all. SMT news is one of the things I keep a special eye out for on this site

  • Barrylocke89

    I will be surprised if SMTIV doesn’t get the #1 spot in the Media Create List next week.

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    I bet that SMT is surely going to take the first spot here.^_^ Not only the game have been heavily pushed, with the rise of many other Atlus franchise, we can probably see SMT be the highest selling product this time.
    How well will Tamagotchi do will also be important to see here considering that the fanbase of Animal Crossing and Tomodachi Collection should also love this type of game.^_^

    The number 1 reason to have a 3DS is so close… I just hope someone uploads the OST on YouTube.
