SMT For Switch Is Officially Shin Megami Tensei V

Atlus releases a trailer for the upcoming Nintendo Switch release.

It's still in the early stages, but Atlus has offered up a little bit more information on the next Shin Megami Tensei game. It was previously announced for Nintendo Switch with very few details given. Today, Atlus released a trailer revealing the game officially as Shin Megami Tensei V.

While Shin Megami Tensei IV took place in an alternate reality world, SMT 5 looks to return to the modern-day Tokyo environment of Shin Megami Tensei and Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne. Of course, it's not SMT without a demon-filled apocalypse, and the trailer shows exactly that kind of thing happening. A young boy and girl are killed—and possibly awakened—by a pack of flying demons. The weird rose petal theme shown in the first trailer appears again here, when the girl is killed.

Unfortunately, while this trailer gives us some idea of the setting, it doesn't offer much in the way of details. All we know is Shin Megami Tensei is still coming as a Nintendo Switch exclusive, and the title will be the next mainline release in the series, not a spin-off.
