Shin Megami Tensei IV officially exists for 3DS, ladies and gentlemen, as a two-page spread in the latest issue of Famitsu confirms.
Back in 2010, Atlus revealed that the SMT series would be transitioning to 3DS, so Shin Megami Tensei IV's named platform should come as no surprise. That said, the game could very well be hitting other platforms, but at this point in time, only a 3DS version is confirmed.
Japanese outlet Sinobi tweeted about the new Famitsu issue:
With the release of SOUL HACKERS just around the corner, it looks like Atlus has begun development on SHIN MEGAMI TENSEI IV for the 3DS. And it's a numbered entry in the series. it's likely the official site will open tomorrow (megaten4.jp).
Hopefully this means the game will appear at E3 as well. Either way, the magazine reveal is certainly well-timed.
