The Hype Train is Getting Faster
Shin Megami Tensei is a name you probably know, or have at least heard of due to the series being absolutely fucking huge. For those that might not know SMT, you've probably heard of Persona, and that is part of the same series.
So Persona 4 is the game that most people have experience with, and that game is really good, I like it a lot but I don't regard it to be as good as a lot of people do. You see, Shin Megami Tensei wasn't always about school kids solving scooby doo mysteries. The best way to describe old school Shin Megami Tensei is like Pokemon and the Legend of Grimrock having a baby together. Even that description doesn't quite fit the bill exactly but it's a good way to describe it to people who don't have a clue.
Anyway Shin Megami Tensei 4 is coming to the 3DS and from what I can tell it's about dudes with Yu-Gi-Oh duel gloves protecting a big city from demons. This means lots of dungeon crawling, and monster "catching" and all that good stuff. Right now, I'm pre emptively putting this down as my 2013 game of the year. They'll have to fuck this up pretty hard, or someone will have to develop something twice as awesome to budge it from that spot.
