Coming to eShop after "unplanned hiatus"

Shin Megami Tensei IV will release in Europe in the third quarter of 2014, Atlus announced this week.

The game is the first new entry in the main Shin Megami Tensei series since 2003. The long running franchise also spawned the popular Persona series.

The story of SMTIV revolves around the Samurai, the sacred protectors of the Eastern Kingdom of Mikado. As a newly appointed Samurai, players will struggle with factions that have nefarious designs on the world as they defend Mikado from a growing army of demons flowing from the mysterious dungeon, Naraku. Decisions players make throughout the course of the story will have lasting repercussions, as the fate of the world hangs in the balance.
