For all the SMT fans champing at the bit to play the next entry in the mainline series, your wait is nearly at an end.

Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse (originally subtitled Final over in Japan) has been announced for release in the Americas this summer. No specific release date has yet been announced.

Apocalypse takes place during the same time as the original SMT4, this time following a protagonist training to become a demon hunter in post-apocalyptic Tokyo. When he meets his demise at the hands of a demon he’s hunting, he is resurrected by a god named Dagda, in return for the protagonist swearing loyalty to him.

The game is set for release on the 3DS, and a teaser trailer was released alongside the announcement, which you can check out below!
