In July, it was announced that Deep Silver would be handling several ATLUS USA and SEGA titles in European markets. The good news is that many of these games aren’t being excluded in, kudos of distribution by Five Star Games. Two of the titles impacted by the partnership between Deep Silver and these companies are the 3DS RPG’s Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse and 7th Dragon III Code: VFD – both of which have been out in North America for some time.
The good news is that the wait for both these titles to head Down Under will soon be over. It has been announced that each will be available for purchase at retail for $69.95 AUD apiece as of December 2nd 2016.
Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse (SMT4A) depicts the remnants of Tokyo ravaged by a catastrophe. Demons and humans co-exist, but in this state the remains of humankind are just a prize being fought over 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.
On the other hand, 7th Dragon III Code: VFD takes place in the year 2100, where dragons have descended upon earth and humanity is at the mercy of these terrifying beasts. However, not all is lost. As the protagonist, the player will team up with Nodens Enterprises—a video game company dedicated to stopping the dragon menace—to become a dragon hunter and eventual saviour of the universe. Although times are bleak, Nodens Enterprises has found a way to tip the scales in favour of mankind by traveling through time to three different eras, the protagonist can upset the balance of the dragons’ power.
