We’re about a month away from the launch of Shin Megami Tensei V’s November 12 launch, and what better way to celebrate than to get more glimpses at the game? Today, we have exclusive info and screenshots that show off the demons you’ll encounter and what’s awaiting you in Da’at, an alternative, post-apocalyptic Tokyo.
First up, demons! You’ll encounter over 200 demons in your journey. While you can expect to encounter the familiar demons, there will be several new ones. These were designed by Masayuki Doni who worked for Atlus since Persona 2 : Innocent Sin. Today we see some classic demons like Kaya-no hime and Mara updated for the game. We also get to see Nuwa in action and some of her combat abilities. She’s going to give the protagonist a lot of trouble, isn’t she?
Now that we’ve focused on some of the faces you’ll encounter, it’s time to look at the venue you’ll meet them in. During your time in SMT V, you’ll explore Da’at, an alternative, post-apocalyptic Tokyo. The terrain in this vast world can change dramatically depending on its location, and the challenges that it presents to traversal. We also discussed Gustave and Cadaver’s Hollow, which you access at leylines which allow you to save at various locations in Da’at. Gustave is now on more screens.
Our previous update also covered quest navigators as well as Abscesses. Abscesses are mysterious red structures that block your path, and they’re accompanied by powerful enemies lurking nearby. Taking down an Abscess unblocks the path and nets you Glory, which you can spend to master new powerful abilities called Miracles. The gallery below shows this in action, as well as quest navigator Amanozako, who acts as your guide as you explore Da’at, offering helpful hints and pointing to treasure. Atlus said she won’t be your only navigator, confirming some demons may also join you as navigators rather than allies in battles.
For now, that’s all. Take a look at Shin Megami Tensei V. We’d love to hear from you in the comments. The game will be available exclusively for Nintendo Switch on November 12th.
