Shin Megami Tensei V Launching in November
During the E3 Nintendo Direct presentation, Nintendo and Atlus announced that Shin Megami Tensei V will launch in November. The game will release exclusively for Nintendo Switch in Japan on November 11, 2021, and in North America and Europe on November 12, 2021. Physical pre-orders will begin on June 21, 2021. The English trailer from the Direct presentation can be viewed below, along with a Japanese trailer that shows additional footage.
Shin Megami Tensei V is the fifth mainline title in the series, which has branched into numerous spin-offs including Persona. The game puts players in the role of a Tokyo high school student who is called into a different dimension featuring a post-apocalyptic version of the city filled with demons. The player character fuses with a mysterious figure and gains the power to fight against the demons. Shin Megami Tensei V retains many familiar features of the series, including a turn-based combat system where players can take advantage of enemy weaknesses to gain additional actions. Players can talk to enemy demons and potentially recruit them, and can also fuse them together to create new, more powerful demons.
