Shin Megami Tensei NINE is the first fully 3D entry in the Shin Megami Tensei series. Takes place during the events of the first game, you explore through a digital world before the apocalypse. The game was actually planned to have an online version, but due to difficulties in development (and maybe as well as the lack of interest for the Xbox in Japan), it eventually spun off into Shin Megami Tensei IMAGINE.

So very stubbly.
This page is rather stubbly and could use some expansion.
Are you a bad enough dude to rescue this article?
To do:
Tons of stuff. There's a debug mode according to the game's files, see if you can activate that and upload the Maya model instead of just the textures.

Unused Enemies

Elementary, my dear Cactus.
This needs some investigation.
Discuss ideas and findings on the talk page.
Specifically: Do any of these demons have stats, or are art assets all that's left of them in this game?

Debug Files

In the game's files, there's a debug folder that contains the file called debug.xpr.

Removed Videos

In the video folder, every video file has a number to them but the videos begin to skip numbers after 23. It's unknown why the numbers begin to skip but it's assumed to be videos that were removed. These video files that were skipped are: video_24.xmv video_26.xmv video_29.xmv video_30.xmv video_31.xmv video_32.xmv video_36-44.xmv video_53-59.xmv video_66-98.xmv

Unused Graphics
