Shin Megami Tensei IV Videos Show A Boss And Press-Turn System


    The Shin Megami Tensei IV website in Japan has shared three new videos with a focus on the game’s battle system. The first one shows off the Press-Turn Battle System, where hitting an enemy’s weakness gives you an extra turn. The second video demonstrates the “grinning” feature, which buffs you and also temporarily reduces your weaknesses. Both your party as well as the enemy’s can use grinning to turn the tide of battle. Finally, the third video shows a boss encounter.





    Shin Megami Tensei IV will be released in Japan on May 23rd. North America will get the game sometime this Summer.
