Shin Megami Tensei IV Final Mythology Video #3: Medusa


Following the second Shin Megami Tensei IV Final “Mythology Video” for the Hindu deity Krishna, Atlus has released the third video for Medusa.

Medusa was defeated by Flynn in Shin Megami Tensei IV, but she has been revived in Final to be part of the Polytheistic Gods Union alliance.

The narrator in the video this time is Japanese voice actor Miyuki Sawashiro (voice of Isabeau).


One of the Gorgons, and the only one who was mortal. Her gaze could turn whoever she looked upon to stone. There is a particular myth in which Medusa was originally a beautiful maiden. She desecrated Athena’s temple by lying there with Poseidon. Outraged, Athena turned Medusa’s hair into living snakes.

Medusa was killed by the hero Perseus with the help of Athena and Hermes. He killed her by cutting of her head and gave it to Athena, who placed it in the center of her Aegis, which she wore over her breastplate.

From Medusa’s dead body the giant Chrysaor and the winged horse Pegasus, her son by Poseidon, sprang forth.

Additionally, impressions from players that participated in the “Experience Meeting” public demo event for the game in January have been posted on the official website.

Shin Megami Tensei IV Final is slated to release for the Nintendo 3DS on February 10, 2016 in Japan.
