Shin Megami Tensei IV Delayed To Late October In Europe


Shin Megami Tensei IV’s European release has been delayed from September to October, Atlus said today. John Hardin, Atlus USA’s PR Manager, revealed the news via Twitter.


“After some unscheduled changes to the SMTIV mobile website raised some eyebrows, a lot of you asked for more details, so I’ll be upfront. We encountered a few last-minute issues specific to the EU version, and we have to fix them,” Hardin said to his Twitter followers.


“Given the current timelines for production, it looks like SMTIV won’t be out in EU until late October.”


Hardin added that the issue was such that Atlus had no other recourse than to ask fans to wait a little longer. “We’re doing everything we can to get the game out in Europe as fast as we can, so please bear with us,” he said.
