The rumors end up being confirmed, when it is revealed that Shin Megami Tensei V will arrive on November 12 on Nintendo Switch.
The console of the Japanese house will receive the fifth part of the iconic JRPG story exclusively, presenting a new official preview at the Nintendo Direct of E3 2021, where it was one of the most prominent premieres of the event.
In this trailer you can see the first gameplay images, which take us to the mystery of a hidden Tokyo in a different dimension.
The protagonist we will play lives a common life until he meets a mysterious being from a world called Da’ath. Merging with it, they form a life form called Naobino, who must fight for their survival in Da’ath against an army of demons.
As the adventure progresses, we will unlock more demonic powers and the assistance of creatures of darkness through direct negotiations with them. This would be able to alter the ending of the game, as well as our personalities throughout the adventure.
What we know about Shin Megami Tensei 5
The Shin Megami Tensei saga is one of the most recognized and successful in Japan for years, while in the West it is a cult series for very specific fans, being basically always overshadowed by the Persona series, which began as a spin off.
Beyond the specific advance presented in the Nintendo Direct Mini, little information is known about its fifth edition, except that it will come from the same study that presented the remastering of Shin Megami Tensei III. With a similar aesthetic, we will explore two different worlds as a forbidden being.
With this advance it was revealed that Shin Megami Tensei V would be an exclusive premiere for Switch, unlike what have been the recent projects of the franchise, which have been present for PlayStation consoles and PC through the Steam platform. It will depend on the response of the fans to see if this premiere will reach these platforms in the future.
