Shin Megami Tensei IV uses the press turn system from Nocturne and Digital Devil Saga which rewards exploiting enemy weaknesses with extra attacks. Atlus added a new twist in Shin Megami Tensei IV – smirks. Smirking temporarily buffs your character and shields your weaknesses. Smirking can turn the tide of battle when you’re in a pinch. The catch is like the press turn system party members *and* enemy demons can smirk.


While the Shin Megami Tensei games are known for being difficult, Atlus added multiple difficulty settings for Shin Megami Tensei IV. Like Etrian Odyssey IV, players can change the difficulty level anywhere. Save points have been eliminated too since you can save and load at anytime.


Shin Megami Tensei IV is in development for Nintendo 3DS.
