Meet Burroughs, The Mysterious AI Inside Shin Megami Tensei IV’s Gauntlet



Remember the GUMP in Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers? The protagonist in Shin Megami Tensei IV also has a COMP-like device. The Gauntlet he wears is a computer with a living operating system. Burroughs, the name of the AI program, greets the hero and calls him master. Atlus shared footage of her on the game’s website.



When a strong demon is nearby Burroughs will warn players. She also manages your quests. When Hope needs the hero to do something, the message is relayed through Burroughs who records the quest and reward. Burroughs is there to help and to keep you company while you’re exploring dungeons.



On top of the main story, Shin Megami Tensei IV has over 100 challenge quests. These challenge quests open up side stories for players to see.
