Atlus has released a brand new story trailer for Shin Megami Tensei V, which will be released exclusively for Nintendo Switch on November 12th. The new trailer is a mix of in game cinematics as well as gameplay. The gameplay shows a mix of running around the world as well as some of the turn based combat that players will engage in.
The story follows a high school student who wanders into the world of “Da’ath”, where they are fused with a mysterious man to become a “Naobino”, a forbidden being, and gets to battling in a war between gods and demons. The game ending can diverge in many ways, depending on choices you make in the pursuit of the truth of the world. The world of Da’ath is a completely desert landscape, with over 200 demons to battle. Some of the demons are familiar and others are newly drawn by Masayuki Doi, including beasts that are the size of mountains or giant birds flying overhead.
Shin Megami Tensei V has been in development for quite a long time, first announced as a Switch exclusive back in 2017. Last summer, Nintendo and Atlus confirmed that the game will be receiving a simultaneous worldwide release in 2021.
