Shin Megami Tensei V, the next instalment of Atlus’ cult classic role-playing franchise, will launch exclusively on the Nintendo Switch on November 12. This news was announced at E3 2021 alongside the first gameplay footage of the upcoming title.

This game was first discussed as an untitled Shin Megami Tensei project all the way back at E3 2017 with a brief teaser before eventually being revealed as Shin Megami Tensei V later that year. Since then, Atlus and Nintendo have provided only brief tidbits about the release, which (perhaps unsurprisingly) takes place in a post-apocalyptic Tokyo overrun by the forces of Chaos.


  • The game looks great, and makes me really wish I had a switch. But that english voice over the trailer was so terrible that I found myself distracted from the actual footage by the extreme cringeworthy dialogue. I hope that voice was just a temp job for the trailer and not part of the official english translation for the game, because that voice would make the game unplayable for me if there isn’t an option for the proper Japanese voices.

    • I thought I could edit my post so I posted it a little prematurely (typing on a phone and didn’t want to lose what was written by an errant button press), but just to clarify, I’m fairly certain the voice is just for the trailer and won’t be part of the actual game thankfully.
