Deities shuffle across humans like pawns on a chessboard.

Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse

Atlus has released a new trailer and announced retailer-exclusive pre-order costumes for Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse.

Here’s an overview of the story, via Atlus:

The story of Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse is one of human pawns being shuffled across a chessboard by the higher deities. One lone Hunter, the game’s protagonist, meets an early demise and through a pact with a lesser god, is brought back to life in exchange for his pledge of servitude. From there, the protagonist allies with other Hunters in the ruins of post-apocalyptic Tokyo beginning a plot that crosses over with the events of the original Shin Megami Tensei IV.

Shop-specific retailer pre-order costumes include:

Power Suit (GameStop, EB Games)

Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse

A bold red and black jumpsuit that will strike fear in the hearts of demons, and should effectively hide wounds sustained in battle

Prime Suit (Amazon, Amazon Canada)

Retail Hero Jumpsuit (Best Buy)
