Shin Megami Tensei 4 publisher Atlus released a teaser trailer for the North American version of the Nintendo 3DS role-playing title today, with a booming voice proclaiming that your in-game choices will "create a world."

There's not much to the minute-long teaser, but the narrator says your choices won't just affect you; they'll have consequences in the game world as well. The video then shifts to the player character running forward through a devastated urban area.

Shin Megami Tensei 4 launches May 23 in Japan, and July 16 in North America. You can head to the game's website to pre-order it. For more information, see what game director Kazuyuki Yamai had to say about the Shin Megami Tensei series' "punk" ethos.
