Shin Megami Tensei IV gets a release date and special 3DS


That limited edition LL is looking good.

Atlus' Shin Megami Tensei series deserves all the praise in the world. Dark, difficult, and memorable experiences, each mainline game has been something special. After the deliciously tough but fantastic Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne on the PS2, fans have been waiting quite some time for the IV. Looks like we won't have to wait much longer.

Shin Megami Tensei IV for the 3DS is officially set to release in Japan on May 23 of this year. Additionally, the game will be getting a limited edition 3DSXL model to boot. A digital copy of the game will be installed on the system. I don't know about you guys, but I think that thing's sexy as all hell. 

First press copies of the game will include a "sound and art collection" bonus. I'm thinking it'll probably be a music CD and maybe a smaller art book? We'll see.

There's no word of a western release just yet, but I'd be blown away if Atlus passed on a mainline title. Given the fact that they're releasing Soul Hackers in English, I wouldn't be too worried.

EDIT: Added some extra details.
