Nintendo has announced that Shin Megami Tensei V will launch exclusively for the Nintendo Switch next year, in 2021. The news arrived alongside a teaser for the game, check the teaser above. It will be accompanied by a HD remaster of Shin Megami Tensei 3: Nocturne.
Shin Megami Tensei V is being developed by Atlus, and is produced by Kazuyuki Yamai, who previously directed Shin Megami Tensei IV. One of the development team's goals with the game is to depict and sympathize with the "characteristics of the times", such as unemployment, unease about retirement, terrorism and nuclear weapons, and problems at home.
The game itself deals with an apocalyptic vision of the world where "order itself has crumbled and chaos reigns over all". The trailer poses the question "in a world without its creator, which path shall you choose?", and is sure to make it very clear that God is dead.
The game is developed as a hybrid between the "profound charm" of Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne and the demon-raising gameplay in Shin Megami Tensei IV. Development is done using the game engine Unreal Engine 4.
Atlus will also release an HD version of PlayStation 2 hit Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne for Switch and PlayStation 4, launching in Spring. The original released in 2003 for PS2, but the post-apocalyptic JRPG featuring a half-human, half-demon protagonist has been updated with HD visuals for the Nintendo Switch.
