Shin Megami Tensei 4 coming to North America this summer

The first numbered Megaten game in a decade set for the west.

Shin Megami Tensei 4, the first new numbered MegaTen game in nearly a decade, is coming to North American 3DSs this summer both as a retail title and digital eShop download, publisher Atlus has announced.

This latest entry in the series revolves around a group of samurai fighting demons. As with other games in the series, demons can be recruited to fight alongside you and this fourth entry will feature over 400 of the buggers along with StreetPass functionality and fully voiced dialogue. As with 2003's Shin Megami Tensei 3: Nocturne (released in 2005 as Lucifer's Call in Europe), Shin Megami Tensei 4 will feature the turn-based "Press Turn" combat system in which exploiting an enemy's weakness can result in extra turns.

Sadly, no European release has been announced, but given that the game is digitally distributed it seems especially likely that it will make the leap across the pond.
