With a brand new main instalment of the Shin Megami Tensei series looming at the horizon (some of you might already be the proud owner of a copy), it is only fitting that the minor updates added over the course of last months receive an update. The additions are not Shin Megami Tensei IV focused only, though.
- “A hint of human life and the unforgotten trauma of which the developer of <Shin Megami Tensei IV> charmingly speaks“. Nico Nico News, Niwango, 2 June 2013. [Japanese]
- “Shin Megami Tensei IV“, Dengeki Online, ASCII Media Works, 9 May 2013. [Japanese]
- Comptiq (ed.) Shin Megami Tensei ~Character Profiles~ (STEVEN REPORT). Tokyo: Kadokawa Shoten, 2001. [Japanese]
- Daisuke Narisawa. “Thus spoke Our Creators (‘Souzounushi tachi wa kaku katariki’)”. Atlus, Daisuke Narisawa (ed.), Shin Megami Tensei II Akuma Daijiten (‘Shin Megami Tensei II: Demon Encyclopedia’). Tokyo: Takarajimasha, 1994. [Japanese]
While the first two websites articles are clearly focused on recent developments, the interviews found in game guides might require some clarification. The former is an interview with Cozy Okada and Kazuma Kaneko for the PlayStation remake of Shin Megami Tensei, while the latter is an interview from 1994 regarding the sequel with the same gentlemen and scenario/event writer Ryutaro Ito, which you can see in this fancy picture I happened to stumble upon here.
New is the addition ‘Developer’ and the page ‘Atlus Historia’, which chronicles the events from the establishment of Atlus in April 1986 up until 2009, when Index Holdings acquired Atlus’ rights. Speaking of which, the report regarding the ‘Civil Rehabilitation’ procedures Index entered as a result of proclaiming bankruptcy has been partially (and, frankly, poorly) translated to English.
Also, do not forget to pick up Shin Megami Tensei IV from July 16th onward. And while you are at it, you might want to consider getting Fire Emblem: Awakening (if, finally, in stock) as well.
