Shin Megami Tensei V’s date revealed, along with additional new details
The accidental update to the Japanese website of Shin Megami Tensei revealed lots of new information about the game.
Shin Megami Tensei V will fuse the quintessential charm of the SMT series with high-quality visuals of the latest hardware. The first game of the Shin Megami Tensei series was released in 1992 and eventually gained immense popularity, which can be attributed to its dark worldview, anarchic scenarios, and original combat systems with demons and deities as allies.
Building on top of that legacy, Shin Megami Tensei V will deliver a new demon experience like never before.
The main character of Shin Megami Tensei V is a high school student living an ordinary life. They wander into another world called “Da’ath.”
"The hero fuses with a mysterious man and becomes a “Naobino,” a forbidden being, throwing himself into a battle between gods and demons."
The webpage went into details about Da’ath:
“In the mysterious world “Da’ath,” where desert is found all over, various gods and demons are scattered about, including demons as large as mountains and giant birds flying in the sky.”
Regarding Demons in Shin Megami Tensei V, it was stated:
“As you explore Da’ath, you’ll face over 200 demons. In addition to familiar demons, several demons newly drawn by Masayuki Doi, the character designer of this title, will also appear.”
Players will be navigating the mysterious world of “Da’ath,” which is crawling with powerful demons. The player will be required to make use of the various means to advance, which includes “growing the power of Naobino” and “utilizing the power of the demons themselves.”
