It's rather hard to believe, but Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse is only a week away from launching in North America. The hotly anticipated sequel(ish) to Shin Megami Tensei IV is filling an otherwise quiet period for the 3DS, while also giving RPG fans something to root for.

In order to generate a little bit more hype before launch day, Atlus put together a brief trailer giving you the gist of the game. Here, we're given the premise of the story – wherein our demon-hunting protagonist is resurrected and forced to work for a death god – along with some glimpses of the gameplay. It all looks excellent, and we'll be sure to post a review with our thoughts.
