Megami Tensei IIEdit
Shinjuku is the lair of Pazuzu and can only be entered if the hero has Bael's Claw, which he receives from Mammon after speaking with him and agreeing to kill Pazuzu. All facilities in Shinjuku besides the terminal cannot be used until Pazuzu is defeated. After doing so, the hero receives the the Mars Pillar. Upon giving Mammon Pazuzu's head, he will attack him.
Shin Megami Tensei III: NocturneEdit
In Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne, the Demi-fiend heads to the Shinjuku Medical Center to visit his sick teacher. While riding on the train to Yoyogi Station, he has a prophetic dream about a beautiful woman foretelling the end of the world.
Shin Megami Tensei: IMAGINEEdit
A boss variation of Hecatonchires, named Defender of Abaddon Hecatoncheires will spawn if the player uses a Kymopoleia's Hair Accessory bought from the Yagiya during a Suginami Tunnels Gold run. The boss does not flinch to attacks and is not weak to anything, unlike its summonable variation, and has a 10% chance of repelling any physical hit. Upon its defeat, it may drop rare items and weapons, including an item that unlocks its plug-in.
There is a mysterious, small dimensional rip outside of the TMG building. Should players touch it, they will be sucked into the Makai version of Shinjuku. The player can find the newbie DB they first encountered in Home III, who is separated from her Jack Frost and will note that she cannot get out with an Ariadne's Thread. She will also mention of a mysterious woman, who can be found in the field as well. Talking to her initiates the first part of the Lord of the Flies quest. If conditions are met, the mysterious woman will give the Lilith plug-in (she herself is heavily implied to be Lilith). The Makai version of Shinjuku also contains four other dimensional rips that transport the player to the Makai versions of Nakano, Shibuya and Ichigaya, and back to the real world's Shinjuku. The landscape is heavily altered; many parts of the land is replaced with a void that looks like seething darkness, leaving the player trapped. The air is also more ominous, especially around the TMG building.
The ground level of the TMG building stays the same in both versions of Makai, including the NPCs. This seems to be due to an instability of some sort, however the player can enter the TMG building in the Makai version as a non-instanced dungeon. The floors of the TMG are riddled with demonic flies, and the player must transverse several floors to talk to the five Fly Brothers from oldest to youngest, who will then unlock the door to the helipad.
At the helipad, it becomes clear who is responsible for the fly-infested building; the demon Beelzebub himself. After defeating several copies of his human self, Beelzebub forces the player out of the building, ending the first part of the Lord of the Flies quest.
Shin Megami Tensei IVEdit
The Shinjuku Region will be reachable after visiting the Counter-Force Demon Base by traveling to the northern part of the Chiyoda region and paying a Hunter to transport them to Shinjuku. The area the Samurai arrive in is filled with poison and the poison must be crossed to get to the other parts of Shinjuku.
Shin Megami Tensei IV ApocalypseEdit
After Flynn's abduction in Ginza by Krishna and the Divine Powers, Nanashi and Asahi are tasked with delivering supplies to Shinjuku in order to further efforts to save Flynn. Shortly after they arrive, however, they encounter a mysterious little girl and Stephen. Stephen tells Nanashi that he will soon be tempted by all manners of gods and demons. He states that if Nanashi follows the neutral path, he will lend a hand. He then warns the party of Shesha's presence in Shinjuku, saying that it has already devoured many humans. The party then receives a notice from the Hunters Association, which states that Shesha has been located in Shinjuku's government office plaza, and all nearby hunters are tasked with defeating him.
Working their way through the besieged district, the party will find the serpent jutting out of the large building at the center of the plaza. After a short fight, Asahi takes note that their attacks are hardly having any effect against Shesha. Shortly after, a Power joins the fight under orders from Merkabah after which a demon also joins the fray under orders from Lucifer... in the form of Adramelech. Despite Asahi's protest, the factions then co-operate in confronting Shesha, but ultimately all are discouraged after witnessing Shesha respond to the mounting damage by coiling up and rapidly healing itself, before escaping through a tear in the air.
Despite driving Shesha away, Asahi wishes to continue the fight, by taking revenge for the death of Nikkari and Manabu at Adramelech's hand. Despite his promise to settle their dispute after Shesha's defeat, Adramelech dances off into the darkness, while mocking the girl for taking a demon at their word. Asahi is left gritting her teeth in anger as Dagda recommends that Nanashi return home and rest for their next move.
Shinjuku is the location where the party encounters the mysterious Gigolo, who offers hints on how to survive their fated encounter with Beldr. The protagonist can also witness a scene here where Midori Komaki is teaching a certain Jack Frost about the power of love and justice.
Shinjuku is unlocked in June 18th as a movable area when the Phantom Thieves of Hearts are looking for information about Junya Kaneshiro. It is also where Chihaya Mifune's fortune-telling stand, Crossroads bar, Mranmran select shop, and one of the Velvet Room entrances are located.
