A wheelchair bound man shrouded in mystery.

The latest Shin Megami Tensei IV website update introduces Steven.

Who is Steven, you ask? Steven, voiced by Cho, is a wheelchair bound man who, with the exception of his name, is shrouded in mystery. He will sometimes appear before the player and provide useful hints.

Watch a video of Steven below.

    I hate Stephen. Stop trying to be so cool and shrouded in mystery….

    Awww yeah, and people wanted to call Strange Journey SMTIV? I’d like someone to point out where Steven was in that game!

  • Eclipse

    I’ve always wondered why Steven wasn’t in SMT III: Nocturne…

    Anyway, I can’t wait to see what this old guy will be up to this time.

    so,in which game this “steven” guy appeared?
    he looks like a middle-aged lucifer from nocturne.

      He’s originally from SMT1 and its direct sequel SMT2 where he created the demon summoning program that is used with the powerglove (also in SMT4), and went around giving it to strong warriors he deemed worthy of bringing about a new age as demons kept pouring in and had to be controlled (but no, he’s definitely not Lucifer).

      You can’t really tell from his new concept art, but he was clearly based on real-life theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking. Here’s his old sprite:
