Shin Megami Tensei IV DLC Announced For North America


Atlus USA have revealed partial details about downloadable content for Shin Megami Tensei IV in North America. Here’s the DLC that will be available at launch:


  • Three custom looks will be available for the protagonist to alter his look by changing hairstyles. (These ones we reported earlier) These DLC items will be permanently free for anyone to download.


  • In addition to fighting in style, there will be a beneficial armor item free for the first month. The Platinum Surcoat Set offers a little bonus to stats in the early stages of the game, and will help players new to the franchise keep the upper hand. The armor will be available for free for the first month after SMT IV’s launch on July 16. After the first month, the price of the armor set will revert to $1 permanently.


  • There will also be a map pack available at launch to help players gain more experience. Suitable for the early stages of the game, the new maps will help players gain extra experience to boost their characters with enemies and a collectible demon exclusive to the DLC. The map pack will be $2 at launch.


Additional DLC items for North America will be shared closer to launch. Some of it we already know about from the game’s Japanese release, such as the Asmodeus DLC. Shin Megami Tensei IV will be released on July 16th.
