'Shin Megami Tensei V' Reveals Launch DLC, Digital Deluxe Edition Pre-Order

by Rainier on Oct. 21, 2021 @ 11:29 a.m. PDT

Shin Megami Tensei V is set in modern Tokyo. Players face a new onslaught of demons in the latest entry from the RPG series.

When a grisly murder scene in modern-day Tokyo blocks our protagonists walk home, an unplanned detour leaves him buried and unconscious. 

He awakens in a new Tokyo, a wasteland ravaged by apocalypse now called Da’at... but before bloodthirsty demons can claim his life, a savior emerges, and they unite to become a mighty being neither human nor demon: a Nahobino. 

With newfound power, the protagonist ventures through Da’at, an enigmatic realm filled with mythical deities and demonic tyrants in constant conflict for survival. Searching for answers, the protagonist must forge his own path in a battle between light and dark to dictate the fate of the world. 

Fight through a demon-infested wasteland using a command-based system, where finding your enemy’s weak points is key to executing powerful combos. Though demons are formidable opponents, some can be worthy allies and recruited via negotiations to fight alongside you in a dying world.

In a conflict between mythical deities and demonic tyrants, you dictate the fate of the world.  How will your destiny unfold?

Shin Megami Tensei V has released information on its DLC content alongside pre-orders for the Digital Deluxe Edition on the Nintendo eShop.

The Digital Deluxe Edition contains additional digital content including character boosts (currency, experience and rare items), three demon subquests (Artemis, Cleopatra, and Mephisto) and the “Return of the True Demon” subquest, in which players will be able to take on the legendary nine Fiends, including the strongest opponent of them all: the Demi-fiend from Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne.
