    Jonathan x Walter…otp, kawaii.

    Really good looking character designs. I already have my preorder in!

  • Keima88

    Release date for europe? Probably winter 2013 or spring 2014…

    I hope I am wrong though need my Shin Megami fix.

  • usagi_san

    Looking good, just waiting for that EU confirmation.

    • Jisgsaw

      It’s been confirmed to come to Europe. Still no publisher named (Ghostlight ? NIS ? Nintendo ?), but at least they spoke about Europe before the game came out in the rest of the world, that’s already a huge improvement.


      • Detrimont

        pretty sure it’ll be NIS

      • usagi_san

        I meant the date. :D

  • Ty Arnold

    I don’t like that font.

    I know that sounds petty, and I know that the game’s going to be great, but I can’t help myself.

    • Hero of Legend

      Yeah, looks kinda wonky, they should’ve sent with the EOIV font, especially after going about telling everyone about it.

    • Neophoton

      It’s not the best font around, in all honesty. They were much better off with EO4′s font, it had an overall better fit.

      • Zeik56

        EO4′s font was designed specifically for EO4. While I found the font more appealing in that game, I also don’t think it would be a better fit for SMT4.

    • Sonny Nguyen

      I’m more concerned about those mile long names.

        • Sonny Nguyen

          Isshachar, Isabeau, Navarre.

          • Dice

            My first name in 9 letters…. :C
            You’ve offended me.

          • Zeik56

            Those names aren’t that long. My full name is “Zachary”, which isn’t an uncommon name, and it’s about as long as those names. They only seem long because they’re foreign.

          • Sonny Nguyen

            Exactly. You took the words from my mouth.

          • Eduardo Rocha

            Isabeau and Navarre have an easy pronunciation (Isabeau is just kinda confusing at first, but when you now how to say it it’s easy).

    • Eduardo Rocha

      Glad it’s not just me. I think it’s just a matter of getting used to it, probably some 1-2 ingame hours and I won’t even notice the problem.

  • StarWarudo

    That Isabeau’s a cutie.

  • Sentsuizan_93

    All I need is a date for this game for NA and Europe and my money is yours.

    • usagi_san

      It says in the article that NA gets it on the 16th July.

      • Sentsuizan_93

        How did I not see that!? -_-
        Well…. Now for an EU date…

  • Neophoton

    Putting my preorder down pretty soon, just need to pay off The Last of Us then I’m good to go on SMT4~

  • ragingmerifes

    Confirmed. Isabeau is a beautiful tsundere.

    • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

      Im more interested in the other female character

    • Richard N

      I still don’t get how you’re supposed to pronounce that name…

      • Exkaiser


        • Eduardo Rocha

          Thanks, I had my doubts too.

      • erapago

        Time to watch Ladyhawke.

    • Eduardo Rocha

      I don’t know about beautiful, but a tsundere yes.

  • LightZero

    Nice throwback to SMT1 with the dreams. I look forward to playing this game in two months.

  • Dice

    Isabeau’s ears…

  • Jisgsaw

    I noticed the japanese text had some words in red font, to bring them out more. Won’t this be the case in english ?

    They also don’t use the whole width of the speach boxes, it’s… strange.

    • Exkaiser

      It’s usually the case when the font is changed after the majority of the text has been formatted. The font they’re currently using must be smaller than the font that they had been using while in the editing phase, causing the formatting to look a tad off.

  • Space_Ghost

    Excellent! I’ve been waiting for these, since I can’t read Japanese. It would sure be great if I could though.

  • James Williams

    One EU date please, thank you.

    • Eduardo Rocha

      2014! :D

    • Ninten

      Didn’t they say it would come out in Europe this year?

  • AuraGuyChris

    *Sees army of Wendigo*
    *Recalls the very early sheer difficulty spike against Wendigo in Devil Survivor: Overclocked*
    Isabeau, you better cry.

  • Guest

    This is marvelous! I can’t wait to play this, it looks so good! :3

  • Bacon_n_Lettuce

    Is it just me, or does the wording in that first screen shot seem a little… off?

    • Mr_SP

      Not sure… Perhaps a little formal?

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    That Wendigo numbers.O_o” “Shivvers”
    Imagine, all of those Wendigo is Demiurge………….T_T

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    cute ears Isabeau(ಠ⌣ಠ)

  • Jermaine Kanhai

    Isabeau reminds me of a monkey due to her ears.
