GODHOOD AWAITS. CLAIM YOUR THRONE IN SHIN MEGAMI TENSEI V, OUT NOW ON NINTENDO SWITCH
Neither human or demon, the newly-forged Nahobino and his friends must decide what is worth saving…and prepare to sacrifice everything in its name. Shin Megami Tensei V is available now exclusively for Nintendo Switch.
When a grisly murder scene in modern-day Tokyo blocks our protagonist’s 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 saviour 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.
Key features include:
- Unfold an allusive story filled with tragic choices, make sacrifices to uphold your ideals as you pursue light or covet darkness to discover your role in the new world
- Fight through a demon-infested wasteland with the Press Turn Battle System, pinpoint enemy weaknesses so you can perform consecutive actions but make one mistake and it may be your last
- Turn formidable foes into worthy allies by recruiting them via negotiations, then fuse them to create demons customised to fit your playstyle
- Explore the expansive world of post-apocalyptic Tokyo, fully rendered in stunning 3D utilising Unreal Engine 4, a first for the mainline Shin Megami Tensei series
Shin Megami Tensei V is out today for Nintendo Switch. Players take up the role of the newly forged Nahobino. He and his friends must decide what is worth saving…and prepare to sacrifice everything in its name. Godhood awaits.
