Shin Megami Tensei V

Sega and Atlus have revealed a gameplay and story trailer for upcoming JRPG Shin Megami Tensei V; World in Ruins.

As previously reported, the plot centers around a Japanese teenager entering another world where God is dead; and a new being promises the world can be reborn from the old. The main character fuses with a mysterious man to become Nahobino, something that is considered forbidden, and begins their rampage across this new world.

The new gameplay trailer summarizes how players must exploit their foe’s weaknesses to gain more actions, while also talking to some to gain a new ally. Features such as demon fusing, the new and powerful Magatsuhi Skills, Essences, Glory, and Miracles were also detailed.

More scenes from the story are also shown, including what seems to be important decisions the player will have to make during major scenes. How will players reshape the real Tokyo, and the apocalyptic other Tokyo known as Da’at?

Godhood Awaits
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.

Shin Megami Tensei V launches November 11th in Japan, and November 12th in the west on Nintendo Switch.
