Yesterday ATLUS had two upcoming Shin Megami Tensei games featured in Nintendo’s Mini Direct. First up was a complete surprise, an HD remaster of Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne. The second game they showed off is the long awaited Shin Megami Tensei V. Nocturne will be coming out on both Nintendo Switch and PS4. Currently there’s only a vague Western release date of Spring 2021. Shin Megami Tensei V on the other hand comes with even less details, we only received a general release year of 2021, no specific season or month was announced. But what was announced, is that this will be ATLUS’ very first simultaneous worldwide release, which means that us fans in the West won’t have to wait until months after the Japanese release to enjoy the game. And don’t forget, unlike Nocturne, SMT V will be a Nintendo Switch exclusive. This is the first Shin Megami Tensei V trailer we’ve seen since the original teaser back in 2017 and it’s been a long time coming. You can check out both trailers down below.
