A Shin Megami Tensei IV reference has popped up somewhere quite unexpected.
The Easter egg pops up in recent episode of Cartoon Network’s OK K.O.: Let’s Be Heroes! – when someone gets a gauntlet that summons heroes. The concept of a ‘summoning gauntlet’ is unmistakably in reference to Shin Megami Tensei IV’s own demon-summoning gauntlet.
Even storyboard artist and voice actor Parker Simmons admitted to the cheeky reference! Check it out below.
