As with the DLC schedule, Atlus USA has also released a new trailer showcasing the demons and what you can do. This includes recruiting, fighting, fusing, talking, and negotiating with them. Everything that makes Shin Megami Tensei unique as a series.

Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse is releasing for the Nintendo 3DS on September 20th.

My Opinion:

All this type of DLC is par for the course for Atlus. So, none of this is new or completely shocking. Don’t be surprised if Persona 5 gets this type of DLC when it’s released early next year. I would love to get this game, but I might not get the chance to play it.
