Atlus made a small update to the Shin Megami Tensei IV website. The game is being developed by Maniacs Team, which sounds like some of the staff from Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne (dubbed Nocturne Maniacs in Japan) will be working on Shin Megami Tensei IV.
Kazuyuki Yamai, the director of Nocturne’s updated “Maniacs” edition (simply called Nocturne in North America) and the Devil Summoner games with Raidou, posted a message on the SMTIV website asking for fans to please look forward to for further news. The website also has an ominous tune, perhaps a track from Shin Megami Tensei IV’s soundtrack.
We’re going to have to wait for Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers to see the first footage of Shin Megami Tensei IV. The Nintendo 3DS port which is scheduled to come out in Japan on August 30 includes a trailer for Shin Megami Tensei IV.
Note: Kazuyuki Yamai didn’t direct Nocturne itself, but worked on Nocturne’s updated “Maniacs” edition, which is the version of the game that was released in North America. Thanks to Cucumber for pointing this out!
