Aquatic Games (Genesis)
The story of Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse is one of human pawns being shuffled across a chessboard by the higher deities. One lone Hunter; the game's protagonist; meets an early demise and through a pact with a lesser god; is brought back to life in exchange for his pledge of servitude. From there; the protagonist allies with other Hunters in the ruins of post-apocalyptic Tokyo beginning a plot that crosses over with the events of the original Shin Megami Tensei IV.

  • The Eternal Struggle Between Gods - The Shin Megami Tensei series; known for exploring the tenuous symbiosis between man and deity; reaches deeper than ever in Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse; as the band of main characters must decide which side of peace or anarchy they are on.
  • Partner Up for Success - A new twist on the SMTIV combat formula allows players to bring one of seven partners to battle (in addition to the standard three demons); each with their own unique skills and AI. Plus; partners will fill up a meter that will interrupt the enemy; do massive damage; and give players an extra turn. Given the excruciating difficulty of battles in Shin Megami Tensei; the partner system will allow for new player strategies.
  • Demons Aplenty - Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse has a series record 450+ demons to fight; fuse; or recruit to player parties. With demons from a wide selection of cultures and religions to choose from; players will be able to customize their party to their liking.
  • Fuse For Affinities - Demon fusion; combining two or more demons to form a more powerful one; is one of the cornerstones of Shin Megami Tensei games; and now demons will have affinities for certain skills; giving players more decisions to make about which skills fusions will inherit.
  • Press Turns and Smirking - The Press Turn system returns; which gives players (or enemies!) extra turns for exploiting weaknesses. The Smirk system returns as well; which gives huge offensive and defensive boosts to party members (or enemies) and now unlocks bonuses for certain skills; such as insta-kill attacks.
