Nintendo Ups Presence In Korean Market By Publishing Shin Megami Tensei IV And Etrian Odyssey IV

shin_megami_tensei_iv

Nintendo has provided some support to Atlus with the release of both Shin Megami Tensei IV and Etrian Odyssey IV in South Korea. Shin Megami Tensei IV will be published by Nintendo as a retail title fully localized in Korean, while Etrian Odyssey IV will be released by Nintendo as an eShop-only title, with no Korean localization, but both the Japanese and English versions available for purchase in South Korea.

Nintendo undoubtedly realizes that these two games are important titles to capitalize on in the Korean market, as Atlus has maintained a following there since the Playstation 2 days, with the release of Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne. The move comes shortly after it was announced that Sega would purchase Atlus’s parent company, Index Corp., so it will be interesting to see if Sega enters the Korean market with future Atlus titles.

      1. You do know Sucker free, that every game from Nintendo ain’t all baby just because it doesn’t imitate real life. When you make games imitating real life, you have to go obey the law of nature. That’s why sequels to most fps games can do nothing much but better the graphics. After all no one in real life can make a multiple person after a power up. Plants can’t get plucked out the ground and become half animal and half plant. Foxes can’t fly planes and land planet to planet. Mice can’t electric lute you. Turtles can’t fly, and a little boy can’t save the entire world with a sword. That’s called creation. It’s easy to make a game based off the FBI’ Military or even a convict robbing a store trying to escape a big ass city.

      2. If you get stabbed of course red stuff comes out. That’s why a game based on reality also has to obey the law of what a human is really able to do. But how can Mario be able to do wall kicks and a long jump without needing air. Mario can run forever. However Leon on RE4 can run for a limited time because in reality, you need to slow down for air. Hell you even start hearing Leon breathing hard. Mario and Sonic can run for hours. And because Mario and Sonic are not games based off reality, they can go putter space without the need of a space suit and upside down and not feel cold. That’s why FPS don’t thrill me too much because there is only so much the developers can do besides add new guns, better maps or better graphics and better online. That’s pretty much it.

  2. Pokemon is not based on reality. The Pokemon are imitating a animals but are not obeying the law of nature. Dogs can’t shoot fire out their months or be weaken by water. The COD dog has to obey the law of being a dog.

  3. Barrels don’t just float in the air waiting for a monkey to hop inside it to shot them out. Yet you can meet a prostitute fuck her and rob her and killer and take her money. You can hop in any car and if the cops don’t see you you got away or you can try to out run them. However according to the law you break a low the cops will chase you and find you and kill you if they have to. Watch out for the dogs on duty, they can shot water out their months but they have one hell of a bite to die for.

  4. its impossible to stop daylight from coming. Any reality based games have it where daylight never comes or is it just Twilight Princes? Did the COD dog start off as a human and changed or is the idea is to get the player to thinking that dog was a puppy years ago?

  5. And this is why Sonydrones criticised WWHD, because the art style is not based on reality. It’s based on a cartoon. They only want reality based graphics and the characters to really obey the law of nature as much as possible. The question is, when Kill zone and Halo and GTA V reach the limit on nature, what else is next? That’s why Sony and Microsoft have more powerful consoles than Nintendo. Rather than just improving graphics, Nintendo can figure out what next new thing to add that Mario never did before. They can add more Pikmin species that don’t obey the law of nature and have them go to the Pikmin Planet and return home without Alpha, Britney or Charlie getting older. In reality it takes years to get to Neptune. That’s why you won’t see a FPS landing outer space like Star Fox adventures or Galaxy. Leon from RE4would be too old and would die before he even got there.

  6. On Star fox 64, you can go to the sun at the center of the Laylat System. On Halo, or COD that person would die before they reached it.

      1. Yup too bad GTA fans can never experience playing those putter space on stars and planets though. Because in real life that’s impossible and would make the game seem cheesey.

  7. The Wii U is the most powerful current gen machine right now, but it lacks games and popularity, and will always lack decent third-party support. As we start to head into the new year, the console will pick up steam though.–It already has. With the release of the real next gen consoles, the XO and PS4… developers will have still yet to master the hardware architecture and there won’t be any real improvements over the current gen and next gen in 2014. A lot of people will be upgrading to the Wii U instead of the other next gen machines because of the price point. And 2014 will really be the year of Nintendo in this upcoming generation. But then after a year or so of the XO and PS4 releases, the next gen games will start to show improvements over the current gen (then called “last gen”) and the PS4 and XO will outshine the Wii U forever. Then the Wii U will once again just be a last gen machine in the wake of the next gen machines.
