Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner - first look

Meet Raidou Kuzunoha - he’s an interesting guy. That's not his real name, by the way, but his title… and he's actually the 14th person in history to hold it. You see, Mr. Kuzunoha summons demons for a living. He is a controller of devils. And he’s also the hero of the upcoming Devil Summoner, the latest game in the decades-spanning, widely acclaimed Shin Megami Tensei (Megaten) RPG series.

While the game's provocative subtitle is actually Raidou Kuzunoha Vs. the Soulless Army, you start the game as a mere gumshoe - albeit in a 1920s, Tokyo-based paranormal detective agency. The story is divided into chapters and each one features its own unique mystery. The first case, for example, involves a strange girl who asks Raidou and his partner to kill her, just before she vanishes before their eyes. As the game progresses, connections between the cases will become apparent and that, we suppose, is when the soulless army will materialize.
