3D world and 2013 release date.

The debut trailer for Shin Megami Tensei IV can be found within the August 30-due (in Japan) Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers. However, early buyers of the game have posted the first images of the trailer online. Details posted with the clip confirm the game is third-person (in the same style as Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne), has a game map; features Hochu Otsuka and Miyuki Sawashiro in the voice cast, and will launch in 2013. Get the rest below.

Thanks, Hachima Kikou.

Update 10:18 a.m.: Here are some more images, courtesy of Game Jouhou:

    Hype meter raised over 9000!!!

    Something about the art design looks off to me. Don’t know why. I’m hype, but…I dunno…

    Maybe it’s just the anime cutscene there that looks off to me and the in-game stuff will be more Megaten-ish? I dunno.

    I’ll clearly have to get a 3DS for this, but I have certain expectations when it comes to SMT games. And they’re not being met by this tease. So far. We’ll see.

    At least it’s third-person.*shrug*

       And there are four characters in that one screenshot. So each is a bender of one of the four elements? (The Korra one being primarily a Water Bender :p)

  • Kage

    I might be nitpicking but something is definitely off in the art style.

    It’s more…generic than usual.

  • DarthBrian

    Yeah, I think I figured out what’s bugging me. Those are not Kaneko character designs.

    Personally, I think the character designs are inferior to Kazuma Kaneko’s or Soejima Shigenori designs. 

    PS2 was dominated with loads of quality Shin Megami Tensei games, but I am disappointed to see that there is no new Shin Megami Tensei games on the PS3.

       I just want a high-def Megaten game, be it on PS3, 360, or even Wii-U. Just give me a high-def game dammit. >__<

    • Vampiric

      ps3 wasnt popular

  • chinglee

    Awesomeness overload! :O

  • Vampiric

    Nocturne style=WIN

  • Vampiric

    art looks amazing

    Nocturne style=WIN

  • PrinceHeir

    please please please Kazuma Kaneko as art director!!!

    freaking hype about this, though i wonder if they’re going the Nocturne route or Digital Devil Saga/Devil Summoner series.

    all in all can’t wait for this, definitely better than Persona(still one of my favorite series)

  • PrinceHeir

    also someone should notify Atlus JPN about the Trauma Center series!!!!

    played Trauma Team it for 10 hours, amazing game. don’t know why i drop it out of nowhere(probably because alot of PS3 games are now getting some new releases back then)

    i definitely need to get back to it.

    oh and a new Trauma Series for 3DS/Wii U would be much appreciated Atlus.

    but with more demons/devils this time. Trauma Team is awesome, but i prefer solving those satanic rituals :P

    > the game is third-person (in the same style as Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne)
    >has a game map

    Whoa. I’d be fine if they went ahead and gave us a first person dungeon crawler (the SMT games are the only dungeon crawlers I care for), and yet they went the extra mile, to make this closer to the awesome SMT III.

    My body was not ready for all of this. Game of the Year 2013 confirmed?
