As announced previously, new Shin Megami Tensei IV Final footage was featured on the recent “Sega Raw” live stream for November 2015.
The gameplay segment had the Shin Megami Tensei IV Final‘s producer, Kazuyuki Yamai, show off exploration in a cave environment, the battle system and a boss battle against the demon Sukuna-Hikona.
Demon negotiation with the new Mermaid demon was shown, along with demon fusion to produce Inugami. A new menu was shown in which the hero’s partners, such as Asahi, will send messages in order to communicate.
The ghost Navarre assists in dungeon exploration by using a “Jade Mamori-gatana” ceremonial sword to open blocked paths. It has a limited use, but its spiritual power can be replenished with special “power spot” locations.
Shin Megami Tensei IV Final is slated to release for the Nintendo 3DS on February 10, 2016 in Japan.
