Shin Megami Tensei 5 Final Trailer Features New Demons, Turn Battle System And More

As Shin Megami Tensei 5 approaches its release in a few weeks, Atlus and JRPG fans have been building up a lot of anticipation. This has been emphasized even more by the information that the creators have been providing fans over the last few months via press reports.

This comprises the alignment factions in the game, as well as the demon bargaining and fusion systems. This will be their first Shin Megami Tensei game for many fans, while others have been looking forward to it for quite some time. To take advantage of this, Atlus published one final trailer before the game’s November release, which highlighted several of the game’s important elements.

Shin Megami Tensei V for Nintendo Switch - Nintendo Game Details

This new teaser begins with cutscenes and gameplay of the protagonist entering the otherworldly Tokyo and the domain of Da’at, as seen in previous Shin Megami Tensei 5 trailers. They subsequently encounter Aogami, who dedicates their power to the protagonist, changing them into the Nahobino. The protagonist then travels the game’s open environment, where they confront a variety of demons, both old and new.

It then shows off certain series hallmarks, including the demon bargaining, fusion, and press turn battle systems from Shin Megami Tensei 5. This includes the protagonist’s ability to appeal to specific personality qualities of the demons that can be fought, as well as exploiting opponent weaknesses to enhance the number of actions that can be performed, as represented by a gauge in the top right corner of the screen.

This enables the filling of a secondary meter beneath the player, allowing them to use special Magatsuhi skills. In terms of the game’s fusion system, players can combine demons they’ve acquired to produce stronger demons, as well as essences that can help them alter up their skills and affinities.

The game’s alignment system is one of the more important aspects of Shin Megami Tensei 5. In many of the franchise’s games, the player can have a different ending depending on the speech choices they make, which can affect their allegiance with the other factions in the tale. Some of these possibilities are seen near the end of the film, giving players an idea of what to expect and how their choice of law, chaos, or neutral alignment will affect their gameplay.

The trailer’s final details show off the different characters that have been presented thus far, ranging from Shin Megami Tensei 5’s protagonist’s classmates, Bethel’s demon-fighting organization, and other demons such as Lucifer. The trailer ends by emphasizing how the player’s choices will have a significant impact on the game and how they will eternally alter the fate of their home.
