Shin Megami Tensei 4 is looking quite pretty in these new screens, even if they do seem to contradict earlier details of its setting and plot.

Shin Megami Tensei is the core series from which Persona and arguably Catherine were spun, along with more direct offshoots such as Devil Summoner. It’s grown into a sprawling transmedia franchise and may be considered Atlus’s flagship.

This fourth core entry is exclusive to 3DS expected in 2013. Early reports suggested it was to be set in an unusual medieval, European world populated by samurai instead of knights – but looking at these screens, courtesy of AllGamesBeta, it must be at least partially modern day as well.
