New Game Plus or New Cycle is a recurring mechanic in the franchise, which enables the player start again upon finishing the game with certain bonuses. Typically they involve a removal of fusion level limits and, in more recent installments, carry-over of Compendium data to make it easier to acquire demons.


Specific GamesEdit

Shin Megami TenseiEdit

Shin Megami Tensei does not have a New Game Plus function, however on the GBA/iOS versions, some visionary items can only be acquired after having finished the game at least once. In addition to requiring beating the game, certain visionary items also require obtaining the ending of a specific alignment.

Shin Megami Tensei IIEdit

The Diamond Realm is unlocked after starting a new cycle. However, the player must first save at a certain save point and have the cleared save data intact.

Shin Megami Tensei: if...Edit

Starting a new cycle unlocks Akira Miyamoto as a playable character.

Shin Megami Tensei III: NocturneEdit

The player can use the burial chambers in the Labyrinth of Amala to fight certain bosses he has defeated and after achieving a qualifying Turn Press on all chambers, he can meet Cerberus in the 1st burial chamber of the 1st Kalpa, following him to the secret Tomb of Yomi in the 666th basement of the Labyrinth. Izanagi and Izanami will then award him with a extra Turn Press, mentioning how they had waited for a strong person such as the Demi-fiend to appear so that they could entrust them with their power. Before leaving, they ask him to pursue the path of creation and mention how their powers were lost due to the destruction of the old world. They mention that both Izanami and himself were the creators of the old world.

Shin Megami Tensei: Strange JourneyEdit

Starting a new cycle allows the player to fight Geist Alilat, and the Ultimate Boss, Vile Demiurge.

Shin Megami Tensei IVEdit

There are two different type of New Game Plus - "New Life", and "Reincarnation". With "New Life," Flynn is reset to his base stats at level 1, with no items, equipment, or macca carried over, only the minimum which will always carry over is listed. "Reincarnation" includes everything listed under "New Life" plus stats, equipment, macca, and app points. All naming events occur normally during each cycle, allowing the player to change any previously entered names if desired, with the previous entry being the default.
