Atlus Apologizes for Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalpyse Localization Mistake

Category: Uncategorized


Atlus issued an official apology after it was discovered that a couple of lines of dialog were left untranslated in the final release of Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse.

The lines are found during a boss battle near the end of the game and are only triggered under specific conditions.

“…the errant Japanese text only shows up if you get to a point where the boss gives you a dialogue option WHILE your partner is KO’d,” Atlus explained. “Our testers, who have been with the company for quite awhile, and who are well-versed in all things SMT (I think a few of them also were QA for the original SMTIV) were so good, they never ran into the situation of having an unconscious partner during the fight, and henceforth the dialogue in question.”

The company is looking into fixing the mistake, but they are unable to confirm any solid plans.

Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse is out today in stores and in the 3DS eShop.
