"Atlus is enjoying Shin Megami Tensei IV’s success after selling 188,562 copies at launch, which was roughly 80% of its shipment according to our earlier report. Meanwhile, director Kazuyuki Yamai talked to NicoNico News about the game that he feels contains a hint of life.
Yamai considers Shin Megami Tensei IV to be a role-playing game about young men and women who’ve been caught up in the fight between God and evil, and their various conflicts while their lives open up in front of their eyes. He believes that the story and its unique view of the world is something that can only be experienced through this title.", writes Siliconera.
