New details on Shin Megami Tensei IV have come out of this weekend’s Nico Nico Super Conference. Excerpts include over 50 hours of gameplay, paid downloadable content, a dropped Moon Phase system, and no links to previous games.

Find the full summary below.

  • There’s no direct connection to the previous three Shin Megami Tensei games, but the background music arrangement holds some deeper ties to the previous titles.
  • The world of Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey‘s is unrelated to Shin Megami Tensei IV‘s, but the Black Samurai’s suit might be related, and a connection with the first Shin Megami Tensei is also possible.
  • It takes over 50 hours to complete the game.
  • Plans for paid downloadable content will be revealed at a later date.
  • Lucifer will make an appearance, but Louis Cyphre’s appearance is unclear.
  • The three Jack Brothers will make an appearance and a new Jack Frost will be introduced.
  • There is an option to switch character voices on and off.
  • Demon Fusion and conversation, etc. rewards the player with experience points.
  • The Macca Beam will appear. But this time, there is no Moon Phase System.
  • A brutally difficult mode might be included.
  • The release date for the original soundtrack is still undecided.
  • V-Jump will publish a Shin Megami Tensei IV-based comic, with someone named Minadan leading.
