Shin Megami Tensei 4 debut trailer released

But still waiting for a western release announcement.

The latest entry in the main Shin Megami Tensei series has just been shown off in the debut trailer below.

This first look at the 3DS title was bundled with the Japanese Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers. A user captured it for the rest of the world to see (thanks Andriasang).

Little in known about the latest title, but the trailer seems to cut across various time periods.

The Shin Megami Tensei or "MegaTen" series has been around since 1987 and has spun several spin-offs related only by name and bestiary of demons. They tend to star silent protagonists and often feature teenage groups in modern settings. Series spun under the MegaTen umbrella include Persona, Digital Devil Saga, Devil Summoner and Devil Survivor.

The last numbered entry in the series was 2003's Shin Megami Tensei 3: Nocturne, which was released in Europe in 2005 with the subtitle Lucifer's Call. Our former JRPG expert Rob Fahey quite liked it, saying he was "torn between an eight and a nine," but ultimately ended up giving it an 8/10 in his review.

No western release has been announced for Shin Megami Tensei 4, but given the series' fervent cult status - and the insane value Nocturne went for on eBay prior to a reprint - it's highly likely it will reach European shores at some point.
