With the fourth installment of the Shin Megami Tensei series due out in less than two weeks, hype is beginning to mount within the RPG community. After all, it’s been almost a decade since SMTIII was released. So with only a few days left before the anticipated launch, ATLUS is making sure to push the game’s marketing in a big way. As a result, they have decided to unveil the contents of the forthcoming limited edition version of the game via a snazzy YouTube video, which can be seen below.
In case it flew under your radar, the LE will include the following:
- A massive 176-page Strategy & Design Book which includes the official starter strategy guide and full-color artwork
- The Shin Megami Tensei Music Collection CD that offers a compilation of tracks specifically selected from the 20-plus-year history of the SMT series
- A deluxe-sized Collectible Slipcase featuring key art designed by new Shin Megami Tensei series character designer, Masayuki Doi
The kicker to this is all bonus items listed above are limited to the first printings of the special edition. Once they’re gone, subsequent printings will only include the SMTIV game. In other words, get on pre-ordering yourself a copy, if this kind of thing excites you.
For those interested in the limited edition, feast your eyes on the unboxing video below that has just gone live. Also, be sure to check back on July 10 for our full review of the game.
