Burroughs, The Navigational AI, Will Escort You Through the Latest Shin Megami Tensei IV Trailer

Another piece of news for all you Megaten fans–an English trailer for Shin Megami Tensei IV has been released today by Atlus USA.

The video brings us new information on the protagonist’s duty as a Samurai–it’s hinted at that while a Samurai is responsible for demon extermination, their true mission has not been revealed yet. We also find out about the navigational AI, Burroughs, that guides the main character through the game.

Demon contracting (convincing demons to join you and the foundation for party building) and demon fusing (the art of combining two or demons to create an even stronger one) are shown off as well. The latter is performed by using the Demon Fusion App, an application on the protagonist’s portable computer.

And if I’m hearing things correctly, that’s definitely Laura Bailey playing the voice of Burroughs, which is great because if I have to hear someone constantly talking to me throughout the entire game they better have a great voice.
