Hello, everyone. We at Finger Gun Games will like to introduce our new project: Ohayou! Beginner’s Japanese. It is an educational game that will teach you the basics of Japanese Hiragana and Katakana. While the instructors Asuka and Kenji give you teachings on the TV screen, the player will use the Wii U GamePad to navigate menus and turn around digital flash cards to give them more details on a chosen Japanese character, such as its romaji relation and a vocal pronunciation of it. When you think you’re ready to test your knowledge, you can then participate in the memory games where you will use your finger like a sword to “cut” across the correct cards that match up with an indicated romaji or vocal sound. Master all thirty tests and you will become a Hiragana Samurai and a Katakana Ninja! Release date will be coming soon!
The protagonist of Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse dies. Oops, spoilers! Oh wait no, that's in like...the first five minutes of the game. That's right, the Hunter-in-training for the Outlaw Hunters, a demon-fighting organization, bites off more than he could chew early in the game and gets murdered by a particularly unconcerned (yet fabulous) demon.
Luckily for players, death isn't exactly a permanent state in the world of Apocalypse. The lesser god Dagda has taken a keen interest towards our hero and "rewards" him with a second chance at life. But like most things in life, the second chance isn't free, and the protagonist is bound to Dagda as his vassal for the coming events.
As Tokyo is caught as the battle ground between Merkabah and Lucifer (with some familiar faces from the Eastern Kingdom of Mikado thrown in the mix), Dagda's position in the battle isn't exactly clear, but one thing's for sure...the protagonist's work is just beginning.
Oh, we're not done yet! Because you can't just go around the ruins of Tokyo looking like a slob, players who pre-order Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse from GameStop/EB Games, Amazon.com/Amazon.ca, or Best Buy will receive some stylish DLC armor, fit for the aspiring demon-hunter! Take a look below:
The GSEB Power Suit is a bold red and black jumpsuit that will strike fear in the hearts of demons, and should effectively hide wounds sustained in battle!
The Prime Suit is a packaging-themed jumpsuit that lets demons know that their lives will be ended swiftly and without any hassle!
The sharp yellow, blue, and khaki colors of the Retail Hero jumpsuit are perfect for those who opt for a more professional demon-hunting look.
The plot of Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse overlaps with Shin Megami Tensei IV (and features some familiar characters), but no previous experience with the original is required! Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse arrives on Nintendo 3DS systems in the Americas this summer, and will be available physically and digitally for $49.99/CA$64.99. The game features:
Divine Intrigue - Choose between peace or anarchy while being a pawn in the gods' chess game.
Combat Partners - Hunting demons is dangerous, so count on some backup! Alongside the standard three demons, players will be able to rely on one of seven partners to help win battles.
Oodles of Demons - Be on your guard because Tokyo is infested with a series record 450+ demons to fight, fuse, or recruit.
Revamped Demon Fusion - Demons will have affinities for certain skills, so players can better plan the outcome of fusions.
Classic SMT Combat - Prospective Hunters will exploit weaknesses, boost attributes, and unlock skill bonuses with the returning Press Turn and Smirking systems.
