SMTIV Story Details

#1 Posted by FluxWaveZ (19339 posts) -

From Famitsu:

The game is set in the country of East Mikado, which has a civilization like Medieval Europe. Tokyo is in ruins and covered by darkness, and demons run rampantly. Samurai are able to control the demons using gauntlets, which have a demon summon program built into them. Their mission is to exterminate demons from the country.
A list of characters is also provided:
  • Protagonist (CV: None) – an 18-year-old young man living in Mikado Country. He is a member of the samurais who exterminates demons.
  • Jonathan (CV: Hiroshi Kamiya) – a young man who has a gentle nature and good upbringing. He is an intermediary between the friends of individual samurais.
  • Izabo (CV: Miyuki Sawashiro) – the lone lady among the samurais, she is a veracious young woman with a strong mind. She seems cold at first, but she seems to have underlying layers.
  • Walter (CV: Katsuyuki Konishi) – a young man who seems to have bad behavior. Although he’s rough around the edges, he has a lot of passion.
  • Navarre (CV: Shintaro Ohata) – a high-energy young man with a strong sense of elitism. He hates to lose.

That sounds like some Shin Megami Tensei kinda business. I'm a bit disappointed that the protagonist isn't female like some rumors had stated upon the game's announcement, but that's not too big a deal.

They're almost all confirmed to be bad guys. No matter who you side with, someone will hate you.

The new demon designs are absolute garbage. I couldn't be more disappointed than I am right now.

I never would have predicted that the demon designs in the game would be done by people that worked on Kamen Rider, of all things.

It's more of a voice actor joke.

I think a more optimal romanization of the Heroine is "Isabeau," since it's Hebrew for "God's Promise."
