Finally! It’s situations like this that make European gamers feel a little left out. North America and Japan get everything and we’re left here in the dark! No, no, no, I’m being silly. If you think about it properly Europe has been getting a couple games here and there before North America so I shouldn’t be complaining about things like this.
You see, reader, I jumped the gun a little above because Europe has been waiting for ATLUS’ ‘Shin Megami Tensei IV’ for what seems like ages at this point in time! Well, it’s only been just over a year, but that doesn’t mean we haven’t been longing to get our hands on this beauty of a game! ‘Shin Megami Tensei IV’ follows the story of a young samurai named Flynn. He, alongside his other samurai pals, are tasked with ridding the world of demons and they do this by using their amazing Bushido-style teachings.
This game has received quite a positive reception in it’s time being available to the public and it’s made European gamers all the more excited to be able to finally play this game in all it’s devil-slaying glory! ATLUS has come out recently and announced that the game will be heading to the European eShop this September and seeing as it’s about to be August this means it is only a month away. Fantastic!
No specific date within the months of September has been set so the assumption as of right now is that we’ll be seeing it available for the Nintendo 3DS as soon as the 1st of the month comes around. Seeing as we’ll only be getting the game digitally, there’s been quite a hefty price drop with the game going for €19.99/£17.99.
For Australian gamers, ‘Shin Megami Tensei IV’ will be a little more expensive simply because of the exchange rate and seeing as there has been no word on how much it will cost here I’m just going to assume we’ll be getting it at a currency converted price which will bump it up about ten or so dollars. That’s not too bad. The game will be released alongside all of it’s DLC which was made available over time during it’s initial release months, so you’ll be able to experience the whole game as it was meant to be played.
