Publisher and developer Atlus at the Tokyo Game Show 2021 Online held a gameplay demo of his Japanese RPG Shin Megami Tensei V.
As a reminder, Shin Megami Tensei V tells the story of a third-year student who finds himself in an otherworldly version of Tokyo, where he becomes “Forbidden creature” and gets caught up in a battle between gods and demons.
In the published recordings from the Atlus broadcast (the official video contains simultaneous translation into English), the player has time to fight and communicate with several monsters, including an aggressive red ogre.
How does it transmit IGN, the mentioned ogre faced a problem – he is so strong and terrible that other, less prominent monsters do not share their problems with him. The protagonist decides to help.
The initiative ends in failure, and the ogre, enraged as a result of this outcome of events, challenges the player to battle. The battle drags on for 12 minutes, but in the end, the protagonist gains the upper hand and successfully completes the quest.
The Japanese release of Shin Megami Tensei V will take place on November 11 this year, while the game will reach Western audiences a day later – November 12. The project is being created exclusively for the Nintendo Switch.
In a recent episode (third) of the Shin Megami Tensei V news, they talked about the demon allies and the peculiarities of the otherworldly Tokyo. The fourth episode will take place at the end of October.
