Atlus details latest characters in upcoming RPG.

Atlus has updated the official Shin Megami Tensei IV website with three new character profiles.

The site introduces:

  • Hikaru (CV: Marina Inoue) – A young girl dressed in a modern school uniform. By the looks of it, this ruined area of Tokyo feels completely different. She seems to have an interest in the Samurai main characters, but what is her real intention?
  • Fujiwara (CV: Junpei Morita) – A man wearing a modernistic outfit, with a fashionable jacket, tee, sunglasses and hat. With a coffee cup and a cigarette in his hands, he seems like a sort of laid back kind of guy, but not an ordinary person. He seems to be acquainted with Tsuigihagi, but their relationship is wrapped in mystery.
  • Tsugihagi (CV: Kazuhiro Yamaji) – A man wearing a militaristic outfit and holds a large Japanese sword. You can see his skin is patched here and there with scars. You could say it’s proof he has gone through a gruesome battle, but…

See dialogue from each character below, or artwork at the gallery.

    Walter’s face. OMG

  • Eclipse

    Something about Hikaru gives me a bad vibe… Then again, you never really know who you can trust in a SMT game.

    And I see that Fujiwara’s rocking that hipster look. XD

    As for Tsugihagi, that sword that he’s wielding looks a bit like the one that Masakado uses…I think there’s definitely some sort of connection.

    • Hikaru Lighthalzen

      what about me? i m hikaru too :3

      • Eclipse

        Lol, well, you don’t also happen to be a young girl (In a post-apocalyptic world) that’s dressed in a modern school uniform and is interested in the MC, right? ;)

    • HeatPhoenix

      Better yet, you can’t trust ANYONE in SMT. Demifiend was naive and trusted everyone, and look what happened to him (spoilers: HE HAD TO KILL ALL OF THEM).

      • Eclipse

        Haha, true enough. SMT has always been pretty brutal in that regard, but I especially thought It was very cruel the way Naoki’s friends completely turned on him in Nocturne… >_<

  • Haku_Luvs_You

    This game looks great. Anyone else pick up Soul Hackers this past week? Gotta get through that, but I should have plenty of time before this comes out :D

  • PrinceHeir

    wow Marina Inoue!!!

    Alicia and Valkyria Chronicles :)

    still hearing Miyuki Sawashiro is like a goddess to my ears :D

  • Niyari

    when i read the description of Hikaru, i think of that guy that follows the Demifiend everywhere
