Atlus USA has released a new trailer for Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse featuring the game’s demons. Additionally, a DLC schedule for the English release of the game has been revealed.

Demons Trailer

It wouldn’t be a Shin Megami Tensei game without plenty of demons. Thankfully, Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse has a series record of 450+ demons from various mythologies to fight, fuse, or recruit. If you’re new to the series and this sounds a little complicated, don’t fret. Collecting demons is ADDICTING, and it’s pretty much like that monster catching game everyone’s been playing on their phone… except, no joke, its way better.

When encountering demons in Tokyo such as the fabulous Napaea or strong Centaur, players can fight, negotiate, or flee. While annihilating every single demon may be the knee jerk reaction, negotiating with them opens up a wealth of options that can greatly benefit the party. Choosing to talk to demons opens up a dialogue tree that gives players to opportunity to recruit them or receive items/bonuses. A successfully recruited demon can be summoned to fight alongside the protagonist, but if negotiations fail demons will happily tear you to shreds.

Once a demon has been added to the party, they’ll gain experience, new abilities, and stronger attributes with every victory in battle. The protagonists can also learn powerful new skills from demons that level up, but that’s not even the best part about demon collection. Using the Cathedral of Shadows, monsters can be fused together to create even stronger ones! Mix and match or use recommended formulas to create the demon of your dreams (or nightmares)!
