The wait for Shin Megami Tensei V, which was originally announced alongside the Nintendo Switch over 4 years ago now, is finally over. The game is out now, exclusively for Nintendo Switch. You can either buy a standard edition of the game (digitally or physically) for $59.99, or you can get the Digital Deluxe Edition which comes with a collection of DLC for a total of $84.99. If you pick-up a physical copy, the DLC is available separately as a bundle for $26.99, in addition to individually if you only want a couple of things. Feel free to check out the brand new launch trailer down below and read a little bit about the game.

When a grisly murder scene in modern-day Tokyo blocks our protagonist’s walk home, an unplanned detour leaves him buried and unconscious.

He awakens in a new Tokyo, a wasteland ravaged by apocalypse now called Da’at…but before bloodthirsty demons can claim his life, a savior emerges, and they unite to become a mighty being neither human nor demon: a Nahobino.

With newfound power, the protagonist ventures through Da’at, an enigmatic realm filled with mythical deities and demonic tyrants in constant conflict for survival. Searching for answers, the protagonist must forge his own path in a battle between light and dark to dictate the fate of the world.

Key features include:

  • Unfold an allusive story filled with tragic choices, make sacrifices to uphold your ideals as you pursue light or covet darkness to discover your role in the new world

  • Fight through a demon-infested wasteland with the Press Turn Battle System, pinpoint enemy weaknesses so you can perform consecutive actions but make one mistake and it may be your last

  • Turn formidable foes into worthy allies by recruiting them via negotiations, then fuse them to create demons customized to fit your playstyle

  • Explore the expansive world of post-apocalyptic Tokyo, fully rendered in stunning 3D utilizing Unreal Engine 4, a first for the mainline Shin Megami Tensei series
