Shin Megami Tensei: if... Hazama's Chapter is a cell phone game published in 2004 as a prequel to Shin Megami Tensei: if.... The game explains how Hazama has ascended to become the Deity Emperor and sent Karukozaka High into the Expanse.
- Hazama can use the COMP and cast magic.
- The alignment system was tweaked from the original games in that alignment no longer influences negotiation (for example, you can recruit Chaos demons despite being Law aligned).
- Despite its status as a prequel to if..., the gameplay of Hazama's Chapter is closer to Shin Megami Tensei II than the original if...; for example, the Guardian System from the original if... did not return.
