Quickly on the heels of the initial announcement that Shin Megami Tensei IV: Final would be coming to 3DS Atlus have released some details of the story & characters as well as initial screenshots.
Due to the game being due to be released in Japan in February 2016 and being reported to be 90% complete news is expected to be thick and fast over the coming weeks.
The story will take place in Tokyo of the year 203X.
In order to avoid destruction from the war against the gods that suddenly broke out 25 years prior, thick bedrock was made to cover the sky, which also prevented any contact with those outside.
It wasn’t long until the battle ended, and the people of Tokyo began to fight and murder others for the little amount of supplies and resources that remained, as they’ve become ruled over by the angels and demons that stood atop the food chain.
Character information is limited but the return of Navarre is thought to be due to the fact that the SMT IV:Final producer Kazuyuki Yamai spent a lot of time taking into account fan feedback from SMT IV.
Protagonist: has been spending his days as an apprentice of an organization called the Outlaw Hunters. While out on a mission,he takes a surprise attack from a demon, and dies.
Mysterious Demon: after the death of the protagonist, this mysterious demons finds him wandering the underworld and forms a contract with him, giving him a new life and the ability to summon demons.
Asahi: a 15-year-old girl and childhood friend of the protagonist. She’s also part of the Outlaw Hunters organization.
Navarre: this is the same Navarre from Shin Megami Tensei IV. After losing his life for something petty, Navarre wasn’t able to properly find peace in the afterlife, and that’s when he meets the protagonist. He currently has the form of a green body.
Masayuki Doi is the character designer for Final and as such fans should expect to see the likes of Merkabah, Lucifer, and others, including Medusa from the previous game, in their refined forms.
