Shin Megami Tensei IV Final Screenshots, ‘Partner’ System Details

Alongside the Weekly Famitsu #1401 scans for Shin Megami Tensei IV Final, Famitsu has released screenshots and additional details contained in the magazine feature.

Shin Megami Tensei IV Final, like the previous game, will feature multiple story routes and multiple endings. It is a full-length follow-up to Shin Megami Tensei IV, which was originally released in 2013.

The game will feature a new “partner” system, which will have players choose a character among a group of allies to support them in combat.

Each partner has unique skills. For example, Asahi specializes in recovery, while Navarre focuses on using attack items and support magic. Partners assist the protagonist during every turn in a fight.

Partners will grow more powerful as they fight alongside the protagonist. The example used is that as Asahi levels up, she will learn new healing abilities such as being able to heal status ailments.

  • I like that we get to choose who we partner with and that they grow as well.

    • The Phantom Killer

      this my sound random Auragar but have you heard of the TPP ? if that comes into effect its good bye Persona Central D:

      • The Phantom Pain?

        • finalmoose

          I think he means the Trans Pacific Partnership Agreement. It’s BAD news for the internet. Here’s a rundown for those who are unaware, https://www.eff.org/issues/tpp

        • The Phantom Killer

          the trans pacific partnership Agreement

          • Nope, and I only skimmed through Finalmoese’s link. Too much words for me to bother reading them all. If it is bad then it needs to go away. *shrug*

          • The Phantom Killer

            http://petitions.moveon.org/sign/stop-the-trans-pacific the guys at the government say if you want it away voice it sight this and spread it around its already bean somewhat passed buy we can still stop it if we do something now

          • The Phantom Killer

            it means your internet provider has to police your internet and a site like persona central is copyright material and they would go to jail

  • I’m actually far more hyped for this now than I thought I would be! I like the sound of getting to choose your own partner, and the screenshots look pretty damn tasty.

    • Just think of as amazing this is, compare it to P5 (muuuuuch better imo, but I am a bigger Persona fan than I am an SMT fan), if SMT could be up to P5’s standard good lord. Haha.

      • Lol, don’t get me wrong, I played the hell out of Shin Megami Tensei IV and frickin’ loved it, and I’m super weabish about Persona 3 and 4 (especially 3)! I can’t wait for Persona 5 (even tho I don’t have a PS4 ;_:). At least I can console myself with this game in the meantime and get to know green-eyed Skrillex MC better. XD

        • Right he is totally Skrillex xD
