Update (2015-12-08): A Hachima Kikou flying get leak reveals some more information from this week’s Famitsu, and two more characters; added near the bottom of this post.
A preview for a new Shin Megami Tensei IV Final feature for this week’s Weekly Famitsu magazine issue #1410 has been shown, and it’s about the returning character Nozomi.
This follows the previous Famitsu feature for the game on November 19th, in issue #1407, which had details on returning Shin Megami Tensei IV characters for Final.
The woman clad in red in previous SMT IV Final media has been confirmed to be the hunter Nozomi from the previous Shin Megami Tensei IV game, who is now known as the “Queen of Fairies.” This time, Nozomi is deeply involved with the story of the game, and she is one of the Final protagonist’s partners as a member of the “Evildoer Hunters.”
Nozomi is voiced by Mie Sonozaki. She is known as the “Queen of Fairies” and, as an “Evildoer Hunter,” she acts as an older sister to the rest of the group and supports the hero by acting as a counselor.
