Shin Megami Tensei IV Sells Through 80 Percent Of Its Shipment


In its first week of being on sale in Japan, Shin Megami Tensei IV sold 188,562 copies. The game was released for the Nintendo 3DS last week, and, since then, it has sold through 80.14 percent of its shipment. For comparison’s sake, the last game in the Shin Megami Tensei series, Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne, which was released in 2003, sold 185,000 in its first week and sold through 75.7 percent of its shipment. Shin Megami Tensei IV will be released on July 16th in North America.


  1. Great news,and speaking of the vita a gamestop employee was trying to sell me a vita today. I was buying a 3ds xl for my nephew’s B’day and he said i shouldn’t buy the 3Ds i should buy the vita,now get this he said it was better than the 3Ds.I burst out laughing in his face,and i said don’t give me that crap i know what i’m doing.His rebuttal was i used to work at microsoft .I laughing again and said what happen lol

    1. “I used to work at Microsoft and now I’m working as a sales clerk at a GameStop. Now go buy my old competitor’s handheld!!!”

      That guy’s hilarious xD

  2. in the us this game is gana sale like 20 if 30 thousand copies im sure it will sale more but USA don’t play jrpg anymore

    1. they probably wont manufacture much more than that at launch, jrpgs are a niche genre for a niche audience

    2. scratch that, devil survivor overclocked sold 120,000 in NA and it was a pre price drop title in the US not to mention just an enhanced port.

      1. yeah but it’s so friggin awesome! first time i’ve ever played a shin megami game and i’m sold, excited for smt4 now!
