Atlus is still releasing downloadable content for Shin Megami Tensei IV. Players can equip their protagonist with Shining Garments, a 200 yen ($2) paid DLC costume. Another mission, the Future of Tokyo, involves characters from earlier Shin Megami Tensei games.

If you played Soul Hackers or Persona 4 you may remember Masakado as a demon you can summon. In Shin Megami Tensei IV, Masakado is the Guardian of Tokyo and in the Future of Tokyo DLC quest you have to defeat Masakado. Steven, a computer programmer from the first Shin Megami Tensei, gives players the quest. Steven (shown with glasses and a red jacket) moves around in a wheelchair and gives players clues in Shin Megami Tensei IV. This extra quest costs 400 yen ($4).

    One Punch Man. :V

    I get to be One Punch Man.

    • Mavalex

      This is now the best DLC in the universe

  • Aesma

    …Masakado as a superboss… well, this should be interesting…

  • Tiredman

    I wonder what is wrong with simple demon design based on what demons used to look like. Masakado was a guardian in Nocturne, and the fella who gave you the ultimate demon bug that made you pretty much invincible, and he was a samurai based demon there. Now he looks like a 5 year old went nuts with red, blue and black colored pencils.

      Sentai artists are designing the demons this go around. We’re not gonna get what we’re used to, unfortunately

      • AkuLord3

        Yeah because its not like Atlus can’t say no they don’t want this design…NOPE they do what they want. Sentai Artist has nothing to do with anything.

        • supervamp

          Omg you’re as a bad as those pokemon fans that scream about garbage bags being a stupid design while forgetting about muk.
          Learn to adapt there’s nothing wrong with the design, your nostalgia is clouding your brain

          • Fidelis

            ..It’s purely a subjective matter. And it’s not like it’s stopping me from buying and enjoying the game. There’s no need for hostility just because of an opinion

          • ChiffonCake

            Kaneko’s original designs at least make some semblance of sense. Meanwhile, I don’t see how this design is supposed to represent Masakado at all.

          • JustThisOne

            *shrug* I guess I can see a little bit of “warlord” in there, if I take a step back.

        • Fidelis

          Of course there are restrictions, but they most likely have an amount of artistic liberty.

  • ivanchu77

    How many DLCs is this game going to have!?


    • RoxasTheUnknown1

      4 boss quests and 4 costume sets.

    • Rytan

      Less than Fire Emblem: Awakening.

  • Haseyo

    And I bet some Japanese mofo will find a way to defeat it with a team of Lv1 Pixies.

  • V. Dokk.

    It looks pretty awesome.
    Just because I can’t stand people complaining about monster designs anymore.

  • ChiffonCake

    That’s actually a pretty cool design… but I’m more used to the Nocturne design for Masakado, so I don’t think this fits very well. Eh.

  • Bald Flynn is a little unsettling.

  • SetzerGabbiani

    Played the game a bit before work, and it is delicious…deliciously difficult. Oh, and I’m not used to the sentai guys’ art yet, but if this is where they are going, we will all get used to it at some point. Makes the demons look more sinister.

  • zeta

    wth man they listed some DLC as free when its being checked out it costs 1$ talk about trap
