The story of Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse focuses on a Hunter cadet protagonist who gets killed by one of the demons treating post-apocalyptic Tokyo as their personal playground. However, the mysterious god Dagda resurrects the protagonist in exchange for his fealty, and sets him on a perilous path that treads a fine line between peace and anarchy. Is Dagda simply an opportunistic lesser god or is he part of something much bigger?
Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse takes place in the 2030s, within the same setting as Shin Megami Tensei IV. Twenty-five years prior, a devastating war was waged between the angels and the armies of Lucifer. To protect Tokyo from damage, a great rock dome was created. While it protected Tokyo, resources became progressively scarcer over the following years, while angels and demons ruled over the human population. The protagonist, a teenager, is killed while on a demon hunt. Contacted in the afterlife by the demon Dagda, who offers to restore the protagonist to life in exchange for becoming his “God Killer”. When returned to life, he learns that the Angels and Lucifer have themselves come under threat from a group of deities calling themselves the Polytheistic Alliance, whose leader Krishna apparently wants to save humanity. The storyline follows from the beginning of the previous game’s Neutral route: main protagonist Flynn and his companion Isabeau have chosen to ally with the people of Tokyo, while Flynn’s former companions Jonathan and Walter have respectively become the hosts for Merkabah, leader of God’s angelic forces, and Lucifer, ruler of the demon hoards. The storyline does not follow the previous game’s three-tiered moral alignment system. There are multiple endings, but none are explicitly Law or Chaos; instead, they are all Neutral to some degree.
