Shin Megami Tensei V: Vengeance Trailer

Shin Megami Tensei V is back, in this definitive edition of sorts, in Shin Megami Tensei V: Vengeance. Using the same world as V but boasting new locations, a new storyline and new demons, it’s set to be a thrilling time for fans of V or people jumping in for the first time.

The original Shin Megami Tensei V was well received when it first launched on the Nintendo Switch back in 2021. Using the engine and UI graphics of the beloved Wii U title, Tokyo Mirage Sessions, but firmly being a true SMT sequel with its bleak storyline and terrifying monsters. That said, some gamers felt there weren’t enough locations, and it had some typical Switch issues such as choppy frame-rates in certain areas. This definitive edition, Vengeance, seems to right those wrongs. 

We got a better glimpse of the title recently as ATLUS released a new trailer on their Japanese YouTube channels, which you can view below:

Shin Megami Tensei V: Vengeance consists of two complete story paths: experience a brand-new route, the "Canon of Vengeance" - a dramatic tale of revenge by the fallen, centered around new characters and an enigmatic cohort of demons, the Qadištu, who plot their own dark designs apart from the war of those who fight to maintain order and those who seek to defy it. Or explore the original story told in Shin Megami Tensei V, the "Canon of Creation" - an eternal conflict between angels and demons, in which the protagonist fights for the world’s fate.

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 savior emerges, and the two of them 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 angels and demons to dictate the fate of the world.

Shin Megami Tensei V: Vengeance is available June 14th!
