Atlus has revealed a new character in their upcoming Xbox RPG, Shin Megami Tensei Nine. The character, named Nabis, will join the main character as a partner in the virtual world. It will help the player send and receive mails from the network, and will work as an assistant, providing the player with guidance and advice. Finally, Nabis will help the player negotiate with devils in order to convince them to join the player's party.
Shin Megami Tensei Nine features both online and offline components. The "nine" in the title refers to the nine elements that will play a large part in the story of the game. It will be released in Japan sometime this year, but no North American release is currently planned. RPGamer will bring any information about this high-profile title as it is released.
